5 methods to maximize your miter-saw

 

Upgrade the blade
Tip #1: Upgrade the blade.

Most mitersaws come equipped with a general-purpose 24- to 40-tooth blade suitable for cutting framing lumber or decking, where clean cuts don't matter much. But to make crisp cuts in hardwoods, you'll need a high-performance blade with a low-degree hook angle. (See drawing on next slide.) Get an 80-tooth blade for a 10" mitersaw and a 96- or 100-tooth blade for a 12" model. (We recommend Freud's LU74R010 and LU74R012 blades.)
