That $5 Mitresaw, the test drive

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Have a saw bench outside on the back patio, nice day outside, might as well set up that "New" Mitresaw for a test drive?ning-imag0147-824-83.jpg?width=750


Didn't want to mess up the saw bench with screw holes, so a couple clamps to hold it in place. Try square to check the settingsning-imag0148-824-19.jpg?width=750


Looks good from my house. had some Oak parts to trim to length




Seemed to bind a bit in the cut? Some Dummy forgot to wax the saw plate, Duh. Had some 3in1 oil handy, since I oiled the moving parts.ning-imag0150-824-5.jpg?width=750


Just a few drops, and let the saw spread it out. Cut a lot better. Almost a glass like surface, tooning-imag0151-824-37.jpg?width=750


tried out a wider board. Not sure how wide I can go on this saw. I used a clamp to hold the wood in place, seemed to work better than me holding and sawing at the same time (like walking and gum chewing?) results of the wider board



Might not be too bad a saw, for $5...

Nice part about this set-up? I can SIT DOWN and saw. LOL

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
