Why Miter Saw Is Better Than Table Saw?

This is a great question that so many people have brought up, time and time again. So for today, I would like to just address. Please stick around with me, and I promise to make this both illuminating and fun ( as I always like to say, he he heh ) ….

Now first of all, the first fact you will want to keep in mind here is that it can be better based on what you’re doing. For instance, if you find that you need to create specifically – sized picture frames, as well as several other types of make – at – home, DIY – style crafts or projects … then a miter saw is best. It’s more precise on the cut, and in some cases, it’s even a little bit cheaper ( no kidding —- like Amazon or Walmart Online can sell you these with the best prices ) . Also, if you find that you need to cut for a specific length, in general, and a very specific chosen angle, then once again, the miter – saw if your winner here. The table – saw, on the other hand, can only cut in one single, straight forward, down – facing ( instead of angled, like the miter – saw lets you do ) direction at the end of the day. So yes, a miter – saw can do much more and offer more flexibility in both the process of the cut and in also the final reveal ( giving you that perfectly angled, evenly shaped piece of wood or frame you wanted to get, he he he he heh ) .

Plus, when it comes to getting shorter, smaller cuts ( which some pieces or projects will require ) , having a table – saw alone is simply just not going to get the job done here, friend. Do believe me when I say that. For precision, detailed cutting and more, you want the miter – saw. Period. ( no exceptions to this rule, he he he he heh ) …. plus, if you are hopping to get an added bonus at no extra cost ( and who isn’t, these days, right? ) , then you are going to go with the miter – saw once again as it gets you side – extensions, too ( in most cases ) … a neat little added perk.

And when it comes right down to it, some of these also come with wheeled support bases or frames. Table – saws can, too, but they’re just not as nice, handy ( or even elegant ) as some that you will see on miter – saws. So I hope this has convinced you that the miter – saw really is your best friend, here, especially when interior trims ( and other precision jobs ) are what you need to do. Count on the miter – saw to get any such type of job done, folks!
