Miter saw accessories can help you squeeze more use out of your miter saw, or they can make it easier for you to use it.
When you buy a new tool like a miter saw, the more you use the tool, you begin to realize a few more ways that tool can become better suited for your projects.
With a few accessories, you can get that tool to work just the way you want it to work.
In this article, I’m going to share with you 6 miter saw accessories that can help you upgrade and get more value out of your compound miter saw.
1. Kreg KMS8000 Precision Trak & Stop Kit
This is one of the most useful miter saw accessory you’re ever going to get your hands on. Using the Kreg precision trak and stop kit, you can abandon your tape measure and pencil, and still make precise cuts everythime.
It’s especially helpful when you have repetitive cuts to make. Just place the stop at the dimension you want to cut, place your board against it and make your repetitive cuts.
You’ll get it right every time.
2. Portable miter saw stand
Using a miter saw without a stand is like running without shoes. It’s important that you have a stand of some sort to lift and support your miter saw and work piece.
If you have a workbench in your workshop, that would work, but a portable miter saw stand like this Bosch gravity rise stand gives you an advantage your workbench won’t give you.
It’s portable. Which means it has wheels on it and you can move it and the miter saw from one position to the other.
3. Miter Saw Laser Marker
Not that it’s absolutely needed, but a miter saw laser marker will make it easier, especially for new users to use their miter saws.
The laser marker projects a straight line across the wood you’re trying to cut showing exactly where the blade will go through.
So, if your miter saw does not come with a laser marker, you can just get one of these and attach it to your miter saw blade, and guest what. You’ve got a laser marker.
4. Rousseau 5000 Dust Solution for Miter Saws
A lot of dust is produced when you make cuts with a miter saw, and the dust bag that comes with most miter saws don’t really collect 100 percent of the dust produced while cutting with the saw.
This leaves the escaping dust messing up your works space. But with a dust solution like this Rousseau 5000 dust solution, you get to trap all the dust that is produced as you work with your miter saw.
5. Dewalt miter saw crown stops
If you regularly install crown moldings, and you work with Dewalt miter saws, then you’ll love the Dewalt DW7084 crown stops that work with most Dewalt miter saws.
These crown stops helps you position the crown moldings you’re cutting accurately against your miter saw fence.
The stops comes in pairs made of tough steel, and you can position each one at each side of you miter saw when working with crown moldings.
6. 100 Tooth Diablo Ultra Fine
Any saw is only as good as the blade you use with it. If you’re still using the stock blade that came with your miter saw, then you definitely don’t know what’s up.
Exchange stock blade that came with your miter saw with a fine tooth blade like this 100 tooth Diable blade, and you’ll notice a huge difference in your saw. Your saw will cut better, the sound produced during cuts will be reduced and the finishing will look as if the wood was sanded with a fine grit sand paper.
