I bought Makita 7” sliding miter saw to have a easily portable saw. Lugging a 75lb 12” was not doing it for me any more.
In any event today was the 1st time actually using it. I squared the blade using their plastic square and checking with a regular framing square. It is dead on at 90 and 45 deg.
I am cutting wood in a picture frame configuration. The lengths are approx 48”. Problem is the only way to get a tight 90 deg total corner is to set at 46 deg?
I am new to using such a small blade miter saw. I was thinking, does the larger the blade make the accuracy better? I am thinking when you are checking square you can get more accurate longer distance from the fence?
