A new sliding compound mitre saw (with much larger cutting capacity and in generally better condition) was donated in December 2021 replacing the original that was listed on this page
Saw Blade can be angle to support different cut and longer cut using back and forth movement.
No training requirement, but please seek advice from other woodshop users if you are unfamiliar with its use
Note - this type of saw is designed to cut metal as well as wood, and it is currently fitted with a combination blade. However it does not cut metal very well and using it in this way quickly dulls the teeth so they leave a poor finish on wood - the Donkey Saw is a better tool for metal cutting
Instructions for the old mitre saw (not an exact match for the current model, but still useful for reference) can be found below
Maintenance and Cleaning Instruction
Ensure to connect the vacuum cleaner when you cut a part preventing the wood dust to spread.
