My name is Quintin Lehmann and i've been using miter saws for over four years. Miter saws are one of the most versatile saws you can use.

    always worth making sure your saw is set up right before you cut, check the right angles are true and everything is locked off. Also make sure to allow for the thickness of the blade when cutting.
