miter saw has a digital readout

  • A traditional hand-powered miter box lacks precision. This miter saw has a digital readout that displays both the miter angle and the bevel angle in 1/2 degree increments.

  • Changing the bevel angle allows compound angles to be made. Use this to cut crown molding lying flat.

  • This saw also has a laser that shows where the cut will be made. Make sure the cut is on the right mark so the board ends up the exact length needed.
