A mitre saw can cut in mitres, also known as angled cuts. This type of saw will normally come with varying degrees angle for you to be able to cut different angled joints. However, you need to know that some models can only swing one way and let you mitre only one side. Most craftsmen prefer saws that cut on two sides.

Lights

Some models have lights that can help you work, even in poor lighting conditions.

Laser Line

This is another handy feature that lets you see the line of cut, as well as where the blade will come in contact with the item.

Accessories

Some handymen have their own stand, benches, or tables. You may want to consider getting a stand, as well as roller carriers, a clamp, and supports. Many mitre saw models have speed settings so you will have more control over your cutting work.

A mitre saw can create a bit of dust. This is why the latest models now come with a dust extractor that helps remove the dust particles. It is a helpful feature that keeps your jobsite clean and allows your lungs to breathe freely.

Corded or Cordless 

Some of the latest models have a cordless design that lets you move around with ease. It can help you avoid the possibility of accidentally cutting off the power cord. While this is less likely to happen, it still pays to stay vigilant and maintain safety at all times. 

Final Tips

The best mitre saw should be able to provide the basic features, such as cutting at numerous angles. With a wide range of designs available today, you need to look for a mitre saw that can work well on your target projects. You now know the important details to look for in a mitre saw.
