Miter Gauge Vs Table Saw

If you're a woodworker or someone who makes fence posts, you need to know more about how to use a miter gauge. A miter gauge is a specialized saw that allows you to precisely cut small amounts of wood with precision. The miter gauge is essential for woodworking projects because it lets you avoid waste and it saves time by reducing the amount of time that you have to exert effort to make each cut.

With a miter gauge you can make even cut lines and you eliminate waste. A good example of a miter gauge is the contractor table saw with its crosscut sled. When you put the fence on top of the table saw, you can make a very precise crosscut because you are avoiding a lot of wasted wood. Instead, the wood is on a sliding table saw sled that goes across the top of the saw. With the miter gauge you make perfect cuts all the way through the fence. The next question that you might have is "How do you set the miter gauge on my saw?" Setting up a miter gauge is simple. First, there are two adjustable positive stops that are mounted to the inside of the fence. You'll want to mount them right next to the spindles on your spindle. The two knobs that control the height of the stops should be mounted to the right and left of the spindles on your saw.

Some woodworkers prefer to mount their miter saws with bench-top tables. This is a personal choice. A lot of people have had good experiences using bench top table saw sleds. However, if you're an experienced woodworker you might want to consider using the big heavy sleds. I have used bench top table saws and I prefer them to the large ones. They can get into tight places, but the lumber tends to slide right off.

Miter saws come equipped with a blade guard. Some blade guards have an adhesive backing that allows you to clamp the blade onto the guard while you are working in hard to reach areas. Clamp it right on and let your woodworker rip right on. Clamp the blade gauges to the same spot on each saw as well. These little rubber blade guards can help prevent the blade from flying away.

Woodworkers use miter gauges to determine how much material to remove from a workpiece. This is called a crosscut. On most woodworking machines, there is a wheel on the front that rotates. Put the woodworker's hand on the back of the machine and rotate the wheel counterclockwise. The force of this motion will cause the blades to crosscut the wood.

The angle of the crosscut varies depending on the cut length. If the distance to the cut end is very short, the miter saws will usually start at a 90 degree angle and cut all the way through. The longer the cut, the more degrees must be turned to make the cut. This makes the angle of the blade very important. Having a miter gauge will allow the woodworker to make even cuts without using as much force.

The last major difference between a table saw and a miter gauge is the size of the crosscutting teeth. Table saws have ten inch crosscutting teeth while miter saws have fourteen inch teeth. A lot of time and effort is put into the miter cut because it is a critical part of the intricate process of woodworking. Without the aid of a miter gauge, it could take a professional a lifetime to master cutting the crosscut in the correct manner.
