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.
