Why is my chop saw cutting crooked?

The reason for this is because the way the saw is tilted. Once the saw is in a position to make a bevel cut, the blade will want to pull the material in towards the blade as the cut is being made. If the material isn’t clamped down, the material will move mid-cut and make the miter saw bevel cut not straight.

Why are my miter cuts off?

Usually if you still can’t get the miter joint to close perfectly, it’s because you either cut one piece too long (or too short), or the blade itself was not perpindicular (90 degrees) from the base.

How do I know if my miter saw is accurate?

Check for Accuracy

Plug in your miter saw to the power outlet and place a flat, wide board (such as a 1 x 8) on the table against the fence, and make a crosscut at 0-degrees miter, 0-degrees bevel. Remove the board from the saw and check both angles with your square for accuracy.

Why is my miter saw not cutting a straight line?

The primary reason why a miter saw might not cut straight is an inability to clamp the material down. The machine is designed to pull the material towards the blade during each cut, and if there’s a malfunction in this process, it might result in inaccurate cuts.
