Know your hook angle

On a mitersaw, blades with positive hook angles above 10 "attack" the wood with aggressive cuts. Negative-hook blades ease into the wood with a "shaving" cut. Your best bet is a blade with a hook angle between 10 and -5. (Look for this figure on the blade, its packaging, or the manufacturer's Web site.)
