Miter saws will make cutting molding, miters, and frames more efficiently and definitely faster. What used to take hours just to perfect the shape, size, and angle of a frame can now be done in seconds using a good miter saw. I have always admired miter saws and in fact, I have been loyal to one brand until one time, I had to depart with it.
I was recently in the market for the best miter saw and I came across two good names: DeWalt and Kobalt. Apart from having good features, these saws have received top ratings and great recommendations. This comparison review will give you a closer look at the DeWalt miter saw and the Kobalt miter saw and how these can make your woodworker and carpentry work easier.
The latest DeWalt miter saw is an improvement from its powerful predecessors. It has improved capacity and precision because of a better back fence design. This can cut up to 2 x 16 inches lumber at 90 degrees and 2 x 12 inches at 45 degrees. This is a versatile miter saw that can make deep crown molding and intricate bevel cuts. With its powerful motor and good cutting features, it can work on almost all materials.
On the other hand, the Kobalt miter saw offers maximum crosscut capabilities at 2 x 8 inches which is perfect for molding and framing cuts. It is light and compact because it’s made of aluminum. This miter saw has a vertically mounted laser guide that gives you an accurate line of sight for precise cuts. It has a dual rail system with linear bearings for a smoother and more accurate operation for any application.
