A miter saw is a must-have tool for woodworking projects, but not all miter saws are created equal. There are sliding miter saws, compound miter saws, and combinations of the two. While all of these saws can make miter cuts, only compound versions like the Festool KAPEX KS 120 can make bevel cuts. The difference between a miter and bevel cut can be confusing. A miter cut makes an angle across the face of the wood, while a bevel cut looks straight on the face but creates an angled cut through the depth of the wood. Having both of these cuts available at all angles is a huge benefit of using a miter saw.
Not only does a miter saw cut at any angle, but it also does it precisely. Some miter saws have measurements etched into their base, while others such as the Festool KAPEX KS 120 use lasers for the ultimate precision. If you want to be able to do precise woodwork, a miter saw is an absolute must. Any pieces that need to fit an angle will be a massive headache without one, and using a miter saw will save you time.
A great miter saw has exceptional versatility and can tackle any angle you throw at it. Being able to make cuts that will fit into any strangely-angled space makes using a miter saw a no-brainer. Thanks to the miter saw’s flawless precision, your piece will come out at the perfect angle every time.
