Com - pound miters are " tricky " to make because the miter set - ling and bevel setting are directly related to each other . Compound Cut Box Every time the miter setting is changed the bevel setting must also be adjusted ; likewise every adjustment to bevel requires a corresponding adjustment to miter . Because it may take several tries to obtain the desired angle , it is advisable to make test cuts on a scrap piece of material , Tips for Cutting Moldings A compound miter saw is also excellent for cutting mold - ing . Molding is sometimes difficult because in order to fit correctly it must be precisely cut . Cutting Base Moldings Base moldings and many other moldings can be cut on a F miter saw . The set up of the saw depends on your mold - e ing and your application as shown . Always make sure n moldings rest firmly against fence and table . c i ei iiiiiiii Miter Saw Table Miter Saw Table ] i Cutting Base Molding ( Miter at 45 ° , Bevel at 0 ° ) ( Miter at 0 ° , Bevel at 45 ° ) 23

See recommended accessories . ( Table clamp is help - ful ) . Hand is holding workpiece to fence when the cuts F are made . All cuts are made at 0 ° bevel setting and e 45 ° miter ( see illustration ) . NOTE : The slide mechanism and the blade diameter of c the 8 - 1 / 4 slide compound miter saw limit the capacity of e cutting a particular application . Always perform a dry run cut so you can determine if the operation being Miter Saw Table I attempted is possible before power is applied to the saw . Larger pieces may be cut using method 2 . 1 . Workpiece Standing Up ( Saw at 0 ° Bevel , 45 ° Miter ) 2 . Workpiece lying flat for compound cut ( see chart and illustration ) .
