When it comes to woodworking, a miter saw is the most vital power tool in a craftsman’s arsenal. It saves time, materials and maximizes precision. That being said, even a top-of-the-line saw doesn’t imply perfect performance. Numerous factors can decrease the consistency and accuracy of a miter so. And, although there’s no clear consensus on what these factors are, most professionals agree that a lack of reliable material support is one of the most important ones.
