DeWalt 的 D704-04 miter saw,在台灣有個很專業的名稱「多角度木工切斷機」… 因為是 DeWalt 的,所以要 25 塊,大約 750 台幣…

低階的 miter saw… 與 chop saw 比起來,只多了個可以調整角度的優勢… 買它的原因除了品牌與價格之外,最重要的是它的尺寸… 12 吋的鋸片。當沒有 bevel 又沒有 slide 時,size matters a lot !因為能裁切的深度大約只有鋸片直徑的 1/3 左右,所以 8 吋與 10 吋的 miter saw 工作範圍相當有限,12 吋的鋸片能應付 2×4 的木頭,比較不會捉襟見肘。

Fence 的垂直度與 turn table 的台面水平以目視而言還不錯,等找到我的直角規再仔細看看,整個組件的完整度尚佳。

左前腳斷裂,有失其高貴的出身… 但上線時,一個穩固的底座與延伸工作台是免不掉的,所以到時再墊底座調整水平就行了。

這台 miter saw 與另外那台 table saw 的想必是來自同一位主人,所以工作台上也有一層已經凝固,看起來很 messy 的膠或漆狀物體。左前腳上的台面就是以 chisel 刮過的表面,再以鋼刷拋光過就很體面了。得把 fence 卸下來後再連 turn table 台面一起整理,否則 fence 雖然垂直,但切出來的角度會有偏差…

鋸片是 DeWalt 原廠 80 齒的鋸片,還相當鋒利,以 4,000 RPM 的轉速而言,chip 應該還不會很嚴重,所以還不急著換 120 齒的鋸片上去…

Bought a $90 Mastercraft miter saw stand for it.

$40 DeWalt chop saw on $90 Mastercraft miter saw stand… the weight is fine but somehow the prices are not balanced!

The Mastercraft miter saw stand is good for the price, easy to assemble, sturdy… heavy though. I am thinking of getting an extra set of brackets for table saw and router, so I can make even better use of the stand and rollers… $56 for a pair of extra brackets, guess I will need to think, think, think… and think over again!

BTW, when you don’t see the Mastercraft blue, the yellow plastic parts go fairly, if not well, with DeWalt yellow…

Going Chilliwack…

The DeWalt mitersaw has finally been resurfaced… nothing new but cleaning!

Scraped off the hardened glue mess by a chisel.
Disassemble for steel brushing.
Lubricate moving parts.
Re-assemble, re-calibrate and test.

Sounds easy…

The little rusty L metal piece is a precision calibrating device I used to calibrate the miter angle. Put its longer edge along the fence and the shorter edge, which is shaped like a wedge, against the saw blade, then light a bulb under the mitersaw and tap the handle on the angle disc. The light between the calibrating device and the saw blade will be narrowed down. When there’s no light coming through, it’s aligned. Tighten up the angle disc and re-check… and it’s calibrated.

It’s also used to calibrate tablesaw… amazing ugly piece of metal!
