A mitre saw enables you making angled cross cuts.

Allow us take a basic instance of an image frame. You have a lengthy piece of spokeshave that you want to cut into four pieces to make up the structure. Rather of just joining the pieces together so they are aligned at 90 degrees to each other, you like to make a mitre joint.

Exactly what is a mitre joint? When you bevel the 2 pieces to be affixed with each other so that they satisfy at an angle, it is. In the case of our photo framework, 45 levels is an appropriate angle. Consider a picture frame you have actually seen just recently and you should see that the majority of them are made by doing this.

Why Make A Mitre Joint?

In general, a mitre joint is thought about an eye-catching joint, specifically for structures (photo or otherwise). When the depth of the joint ends up being better then stronger alternatives such as syncs could be thought about.

Sometimes a pipe is joined making use of a mitre saw to develop the joint. In some such situations there could even be nothing else feasible alternative.

Manual Mitre Saw

This showcases a metal base into which a backsaw is positioned as well as is able to openly turn. Since this enables for better precision in reducing, a backsaw is used.

The base has vice clamps onto which you could safeguard your piece of wood. Assisting poles after that permit you to take care of the angle at which you wish to saw. This is a really comparable concept to the original "mitre box".

Mitre Box

The mitre box precedes the manual mitre saw however the concept is similar.

It is nothing more than an open ended and open top box with slots cut in it. It is typically made of wood or plastic.

The suggestion is that you position your piece of timber inside package and then put your saw with the guides and start to reduce. The guides are typically set at 45 and 90 degrees. Some designs feature 60 levels, 30 degrees and various other less usual angles.

If you are cutting little items after that you could often go without, it is good practice to clamp your work to a bench however.

Powered Mitre Saw

The above tools are usually just great for making picture frameworks and also comparable buildings.

For bigger applications you might locate it extra reliable to use a power device. The price of such tools has actually dropped significantly in the last couple of years.

A powered mitre saw usually showcases an aluminium base over which is installed a round saw. The saw can be turned around the base as well as locked into setting at whatever angle you choose.

A variety of various designs are offered on the marketplace. The most basic is a sliding saw. The saw has the ability to slide along a rail and also this suggests that it can cut to larger than its very own diameter. Another prominent variation is a substance saw. This allows you to not only angle your cut but additionally to turn the blade at the same time.


Instead of simply joining the items with each other so they are aligned at 90 levels to each other, you like to make a mitre joint.

Just what is a mitre joint? This is a very comparable idea to the initial "mitre box".

The concept is that you place your piece of spokeshave inside the box as well as after that position your saw via the overviews as well as start to cut. The saw is able to glide along a rail and also this means that it can cut to larger compared to its own size.
