Commonly used for cutting molding and trim, a power miter saw (also known as a drop saw, chop saw or angle saw) is an essential tool for carpentry work. Miter saws come in three variation, so it’s important to choose the one that will meet your needs. The three variations - compound miter saws, dual compound miter saws and sliding compound miter saws - offer the ability to cut at different angles, tilts and lengths. No matter the variation, a miter saw stand or table that holds the saw at a comfortable working height and supports long pieces of lumber is essential.
