Question about Bosch 12" Dual - Bevel Compound Miter Saw with Upfront Controls and Laser Tracking 4212L

Mitre saw won't cut square

I have a 15 year old craftsman mitre squuare. it works like a mule but when I use it to cut a compound angle I can not get it to cut regular mitres square. When I cut a mitre the bottom of the angle is open. I have tried to zero out the saw but it seems that zero in dicator must be mis alined. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Look on top of fence
see 4 holes
loosen 4 bolts (probably hex wrench) and fence will loosen also
framing square against loose fence and lowered blade (to re-calibrate)
tighten fence,... square to blade

Do you know where i can source a manual for a Ryobi 1800w 254mm Compound Sliding Mitre Saw model EMS 1825 SCL


normally they do
they cut at angles across the material
there is also a adjustment at the back of the slide that allows the head to be tilted
there is an angle gauge there and a pointer to give you the tilt angle
by adjusting that and the across the bed angle , you can cut compound angles
set the angle and then test cut as the angle may not always be exact ( setting it on 10 degrees on the scale may be 10 1/2
degrees in reality so testing gets it dead right)
adjust as necessary

Ryobi mitre saw jamming when cutting


There's a normal adjustment process of squaring the blade to the table, page 19 of your manual. If the blade is not square to the table then it will bind. Here's the link for the manual, see page 19.

How to build a wooden pyramid frame for school children, 2metres on each length of base.


cut 4 pieces of 2x2 to1.5 inches short of 2 metres. lay them out end to end to form a two metre box. it can only work one way. then take string from corner to corner to find the center, making a crosshair. then stand a level rod at the centre to the desired height and fasten equal length lines from each corner to the peak. using a compound mitre saw, place an angle finder at the bottom and top corners to give you the angle to cut your piece with the saw set at 45 degrees, to give you your compound miter for the top. just set the saw blade to line up with the angle finder to get the bottom cut. the length of your "tight" string line frome corner to peak is your length of "hip" piece

Looking for help scouts have a carpentry merit badge from the 50s they talk about using a BEVEl and a Miter tools can you help


The bevel is an angle fiding tool. it consists of a wooden section about 4" long with a swivel bolt at one end connected to a slotted metal blade (similar to a 1 foot steel ruler). The bolt has a wing nut and bolt to allow loosenig to allow the blade to rotate and slide to the required angle where it is locked into position using the wing nut.
The mitre is a wooden block with slots cut into it at pre determined angles. ie 45 degrees. When cutting a mitre joint the wood is placed against the block and the saw follows the line of the slot cutting the 45 degree angle.
Hope this makes sense and good luck

Why when i cut a bit of 6" skirting board it does'nt cut square on a brand new ryobi ems 2026 sliding mitre saw


Don't ever assume that the markings on the angle setting are correct and accurate. Always check squareness with a square before you use a miter saw. With almost all brands of power tools being built overseas nowadays there is unfortunately a question of accuracy on most brands. Always check.
