Miter slots are not always standard on lumberjacks’ sAWS. However, most sAWS have miter slots these days, so if you’re looking for one, it’s likely to be there. Miter slots are used to make precise cuts in lumber and other materials. The slots usually run the length of the saw blade, and they can be adjusted to create a variety of angles.
The angled cuts make it easy to create accurate cross-cuts and other shapes. Miter slots also help you to make a straight cut without having to adjust the angle of the blade each time.
