  • Bevel tilt
  • STOPs
  • Brakes

One of the final things you need to look for when buying compound miter saws is a design that has electric brakes. With this design, the flow of electricity will reverse whenever you power the tool off. This will stop the blade quickly, usually within two or three seconds.

Blades used in compound miter saws that don’t have electric brakes can take more than ten seconds to stop rotating.

These are just a few tips about the basic things to look for in a compound miter saw. Armed with this knowledge, you should be able to make a better decision than before about which saw to get and what you might need in a compound miter saw.
