Ceci est une scie à onglets typique, de base, simple, fixe ou non inclinable.
This is a typical basic miter saw, simple, fixed or no tilting.
When cutting thin, narrow and/or small moldings, there is no support behind the molding, meaning that chipout will inevitably occur.
To maximize the installation and prevent chipouts, add a temporary rabetted cleat to support the molding to be cut. This latter must be clamp down to the miter saw.
Then make guide cuts that will help you to align cut lines of the workpieces.
Here is a sample of a well supported and secure clean cut .
Another method is using a cradle like the one shown on the picture. A piece of 1/8’’ thick hardboard and a strip of plywood. Be careful not to drive nail in the expected cut lines.
As shown, the cradle must be clamp to the miter saw. It can also be screwed to the fence of the saw from behind.
To extend the life of the cradle, I add a piece of scrap wood to prevent the blade from digging in the base of the cradle. And for different angles of cut, you can move the cradle from left or right to get a new cut line.
After use, drill a hole in the cradle to hang this new jig on the wall.
