Hitachi C8FSHE Slide Compound Miter Saw

A miter saw is a saw used to make accurate crosscuts and miters in a workpiece by pulling a large backsaw or a mounted circular saw blade down onto a board in a quick motion.It is commonly used for cutting of molding, trim and small boards.

The workpiece is held against a fence, which provides a precise cutting angle between the plane of the blade and the plane of the longest workpiece edge. In standard position, this angle is fixed at 90°

It's possible to move the base precise one-degree incremental changes or also provide "stops" that allow the miter index to be quickly set to common angles (such as 15°, 22.5°, 30°, and 45°)


  • Use always safety glasses
  • Respect the safety distance limit between the hand and the blade, indicated on the machine
  • if the piece of wood is too small, use another machine
  • Let the blade come to a complete stop at the end of each cut before lifting it.

How to use

  • Push the wood against the metal bar.
  • Make a line on the material where you want to cut.
  • Put the blade on the side of the line (not in the centre)
  • Start from far, go down and go forward.
  • You can adjust two different angles. the angle of the base or the angle of the blade
  • You can use the laser light to check for the line of cut.
