3. Operation

Cross-cutting (or miter cutting)

To do a cross-cut, you must first cut in two different directions simultaneously, one parallel to the other. The miter table should be adjusted to 0° for a straight crosscut. An angle other than zero degrees is required to perform miter crosscuts on a miter table.

To bevel cut

The blade is facing the workpiece when performing a bevel cut. Straight bevel cuts may be made by setting the miter table to zero degrees and the blade to an angle of 0° to 45°.

Compound miter cutting

A compound miter is a form of miter that simultaneously employs a miter and a bevel angle. Making picture frames, molding, sloping-side boxes, and unique roof framing cuts require this cut. 

For this cutting operation, a bevel-tilted saw arm and a precision miter table control arm are required. The interaction between the two angle sets in a complicated miter installation requires significant caution.

To support long workpieces

Supports are required if the workpiece is to be sag-free. To provide a clean cut, the workpiece should be supported so that it lies level on the saw’s base and the cutting table during cutting. A C-clamp or the available work clamp might be used to keep the work in place.

Cutting compound miters

The instruction handbook includes a compound angle setting chart that might help you get the proper settings. Then, if you’re having trouble calculating workpiece angles, you can also use the compound angle cut calculator. Much preparation is needed before performing a compound cut. Hence trial cuts should be made on waste material.


The Ryobi Miter Saw is an excellent tool for anyone looking for a reliable and durable saw to do their work with. Ryobi has a reputation for making quality power tools. The miter saw is no exception. Users are encouraged to read the manuals for more efficient use and to avoid injury.
