Laser Cutting Guide

I use a laser pen to improve accuracy when
making miter cuts on a compound miter saw.
It’s especially helpful when cutting ornate or
rabbeted moldings. First I mark the edge of the
molding where it is to be cut. Then I lay a laser
pointer in the blade channel of the miter saw. I
position the stock with the laser showing me
the precise spot at which the blade will exit.
Don’t forget to remove the laser pointer before
making the cut!
