All shapes angles make up 360 degrees.
square=360/4 = 90degs
hexagon=360/6 =60degs
decagon=360/10 =36degs

My Blue Laser


Ever wish you could make that perfect cut the first time with your miter saw or table saw ? Simple if you put a strip of wide blue tape on base of saw and cut the tape with your saw ! Now you know where the blade will cut, now mark your wood, move the wood and the pencil mark to edge of tape that you just cut and cut it. That simple and easy to calibrate verses the red lasers that come on some saws that to me never work right to begin with.

When cutting 7.5" laminate wood floor with 12" miter saw. When we cut, the very end of wood(1.25"at the same place on every piece). Does this mean blade is dull?


Hi Shaun:
Just a couple of things to try:
- Make sure the laminate is supported at both sides when cutting.
- Make sure the laminate is held firmly against the fence and deck when cutting.
- Do not "rush" the cut. Laminate is very hard and does not like to be hurried.
- Make sure that the correct blade (teeth) is being used.
- And yes, the blade has to be SHARP

How to cut wood trim corner angles ?


It's generally easiest not to figure them at all - prop them in their intended position (although usually upside-down) to make the cut. Doing that eliminates any need for a compound miter saw. That assumes you're talking about crown molding. If you just want the angles for flat moldings, then remember that a square corner equals 90 degrees. Split that corner in half to make a miter joint, and you'll want 45 degrees. If you're making a half-round corner with three pieces, split the 90 degrees by three (the number of pieces) and you get 30 degrees each.

It does get a little more complicated if you're meeting one thickness molding with a completely different thickness molding - then sometimes the easiest thing to do is not miter at all, but make a "coped joint".

I bought a ls1016 coupond mitre saw this week. I was cutting cedar 2x6 's today and had a few kick backs. I am building my deck and do not feel safe using the saw after the kick backs. Why as this...


Sounds as if the blade is dull. Or perhaps bent. A dull or bent blade blade will 'grab' the wood, rather than cut it, resulting in binding, or kickbacks.

Solution; replace the blade with a fine-toothed, good quality blade. If the blade is new, then check that the blade is bolted tight on the arbor. If the blade is loose, it can result in kickbacks.

Also, check that all the bolts/fasteners/locking mechanisms on the saw are tight, and in good working order. Sometimes a tool new out-of-the-box will have loose screws/nuts/bolts that need to be tightened up.

Also, when cutting, use a smooth, slow, motion, being sure to give the saw the time it needs to make the cut.

How do i cut floor trim with my stanley mitre box


To do the job right, you make a miter cut, then a coping cut. There is an excellent article on this at:
http://www.wikihow.com/Cut-a-Coped-Joint-in-Wood-Trim
Getting a nice-looking coped joint is very satisfying, but takes a bit of practice. But it's worth it. Miter joints are great for picture frames and trim on furniture, but not for trimming a room.
Good luck!

I have a Craftsman 10" table saw model number: 137.248830. The saw doesn't make square cuts, it is more of a problem when using the miter. I have followed the alignment procedure so that the right...


I assume that your alignment procedure is about adjusting your miter gage. But you should first verify if the blade is parallel to the miter slot (the slot the miter gage slides in). This is adjustable underneath the saw, and sometimes comes crooked from the factory or comes loose later on. To check if the blade is parallel to the miter slot you can do this.....1. unplug the saw. 2. Raise the blade as far as it will go. 3. Clamp a piece of wood to your miter gage so that it just touches the blade as close to the front of the saw as possible. 4. Use a marker and mark that spot on the blade. 5. Now slide the miter toward the back of the saw, and rotate the blade by hand so that your piece of wood hits the same spot as where you checked in the front. You can see a large misalignment by eye. But you can get a little precise by using a piece of paper between the wood and the blade as a feeler gage. Or better yet, use a drop indicator instead of the piece of wood and you can measure the difference. If this isn't as close to parallel as you are able to measure it, you need to turn the saw over and find the bolts that attach the whole assembly under there to the table top. Once you have this in alignment, you should be able to set your miter to be square against any good square. If you don't have a high quality square, you can go to a tool store (Sears or whoever) with your miter gage in hand, and set it to be square against their most expensive square. If the square is square, and the blade is parallel to the slot and it still won't cut square you either have a bad blade or there is too much play in the saw's arbor. Try to wiggle the blade side-to-side - any wiggle at all is too much.
