RAGE3DB Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw Features
Double Bevel Function Saves You Time
The main difference between a single bevel and a double bevel miter saw is that with the double bevel you won’t have to flip your workpiece to make bevel cuts on both sides. This is because you are able to swing the saw itself to make your matching bevel cuts.
A double bevel, such as the RAGE3-DB makes it a lot easier to make matching multiple cuts. This is especially helpful for making repeat cuts when working with pieces like crown mouldings, as it will allow you to get the job done much faster than using a single bevel saw.
3″ Adjustable Cutting Depth Stop Ideal for Plunge Cuts
The depth stop, which consists of a depth adjustment screw, wingnut, and the stop itself, can be used to limit the cutting depth of the blade to provide much more control when plunge cutting for lap joints or cutting grooves and taller workpieces.
12.5″ Slide Action Capacity
The RAGE3-DB takes the more compact RAGE3 to the next level with even more cutting capacity than before.
With a 12.5” slide, this double bevel mitre saw enables longer angled cuts to be made than the 12” slide on the RAGE3. This allows larger materials to be cut on a miter saw which would not be possible otherwise.
Optional Miter Stand
