Single Miter Saw

Single miter saws are sawing machines that can only adjust the positioning in one direction, either to the right, or to the left. Based on this unilateral design, single miter saws can only allow users to make one directional bevel cutting actions on the work piece objects. Single miter saws are sometimes referred to as single bevel miter saws, which are able to make both bevel cuttings and miter cuttings independently, or can be made together. Single miter sawing is very practical and useful to wood working, metal working, and other cutting processes.

Miter Saws Angle Degree and Circular Sawing

The standard cutting angle degree is often ninety degrees. This is the preset angle degree. But since both single and dual bevel miter saws could allow users to make the bevel cuttings, so the cuttings are along the work pieces’ thickness at the angle whose degree is other than ninety degrees. For the circular sawing, the bevel of the miter saw can be applied to intricate works. Regarding the sawing of the work pieces, circular sawing is not like band sawing machines in many aspects. A circular sawing machine will exploit circular tools to conduct sawing procedure rather than sawing band blades to achieve the cutting mechanism, which leads to other machining features that is different from band sawing mechanism. Miter saws are of different setting values.

Single bevels are thus powered by a power force that can make the accurate cuts. Conventionally, a circular saw is a powered saw that uses a toothed or abrasive disc set or blade to cut different materials by a rotary motion spinning around an arbor. To be precise, circular saws were invented in the late 18th century and were in common use in sawmills in the United States by the middle period of the 19th century due to the growth of industry over agricultural sectors in the US at that time. Regarding the applications, a circular saw is a machining tool for cutting many materials such as wood, masonry, plastic, or metal. Circular saw may be hand-held or mounted onto a machine, as both models could work well as observed.

Single Bevel Applications in Wood Working

Single bevel sawing is a widely used machining method, and there are different references in the sectors. For instance, in the sector of woodworking, single bevel can be used widely to cut different types of wood profiles. Both single bevel and double bevel saws are designed with excellent cutting sawing capacity, and single bevel can be well managed on the wood working application. The differences between single bevels and double bevels are many regarding the field work application, and here are the three main differences.

First of all, single bevel is much easy on the mobility for workers. In the point of view about mobility, users would find it difficult to move the heavier double bevel miter saw compared to the single bevel counters. The lighter weights of the single bevel saws make this type of sawing machines popular to workers. Secondly, single bevel could make cuts at a certain angle, yet double bevel miter saws could cut on both sides of the work pieces without the need to move the board around, so this mobility advantage makes double bevel competitive, too.

Here both single bevel and double bevel have won one point each. After that, the third point goes to both sides, based on users’ need. For those amateur users, using single bevel is much easier, but if users are capable of advanced functionality and operation, double bevel is a very good one for professional usages. Most users may prefer single bevels more since this is easier to learn and get feedback from it. 

Similar Structures as Circular Sawing

Both single bevel and double bevel are sawing machines with circular discs. The driven power is the core of the sawing mechanism. Normally, the saws are powered by conventional electricity. And for the case of circular sawing machines, the driven process may be gear driven or belt driven, yet most of them are activated by the transmission components so there are speeds as options for the onsite operators to choose as for the optimum working modes based on their working conditions.
