Perfectly designed for the DIY user this is a brilliant buy. The fantastic value Vonhaus Compound mitre saw is everything you need for building decking, sheds, stud walls and skirting boards.
Most of us don’t need a mitre saw that we use every day, we just need a straight forward model that can be dusted down every couple of months for a quick job. Any complicated joinery we leave to the professionals.
This is a simple saw that will accurately sail through 2 inch cuts all day, but it does have it limitations in cutting capacity for the bigger jobs. If you need a solid saw to help out on jobs around the home and garden you won’t go far wrong with this model. Click the blue button for a great deal.
This saw offers a number of well put together features and covers all of the basics well. Have a read through and check that it will meet your requirements and if it can tackle the sort of jobs you need to do.
The Vonhaus Compound mitre saw has a strong 1400 Watt 230 Volt power unit that will deliver plenty of power for the DIY jobs around the house. It will be able to cut through any wood to its maximum cut depth with no problem. With plenty of power to keep the 24 tooth blade spinning through the cut you will come out with a smooth and accurate finish to give you nice joins. The cut depth is up to 5.5cm which is just over 2 inches so you will be able to cut through the 2 by 4 pieces of wood for internal joinery. If you re looking to cut larger pieces of wood you will need to look at a more powerful saw with a larger cutting capacity.
For getting the perfect angle on your cut there are indicators for the most commonly used bevel angles and also you can select your own angles up to 45 degrees on both left and right sides. This makes the saw very versatile for cutting the basic angles.
If you are looking to cut more complex angles it could well be worth reading some of other reviews of the mid to high range saws that offer a large amount of flexibility when it comes to the cutting angles.
Safety is a priority with any sort of power tools, the Vonhaus 1400w mitre saw offers many safety features that will allow the beginners to feel comfortable when operating the saw. The blade is covered by a robust plastic cover that drops down over the blade when it is not is use and lifts up automatically when it is cutting. The base unit has non slip feet to hold it in position while you are working so that it won’t slip around.
This saw is predominately built for smaller jobs that may well be carried out indoors which means creating a lot of dust. This needs to be managed properly, the VonHaus mitre saw has an easily detachable dust bag that gathers the dust while you work keeping the environment as clean and healthy as possible.
Another great feature that is offered with this saw is the option to bolt it down onto a work bench to make it even more secure and easier to use. This will allow you to work at a good height and will make it easier to manage longer pieces of wood without having another person to hold them. The bench and saw can be bought as a combination at a great price.
As you can see from the features that are no flash gadgets and complex settings that cover every single eventuality but the basics are covered well and this compound mitre saw should be able to tackle most jobs that you throw at it with ease.
Value For Money
The value for money is fantastic for this saw. It represents great value against all of the more well known brands with great features that are more than enough for most users. If you are looking to purchase your first mitre saw and are an infrequent wood worker then this is definitely a saw to think about purchasing. It is quite easy to get tempted to spend many times more on a more versatile saw but before you do have a think about if you really need it or if the VonHaus mitre saw could do the job.
The warranty provided with the saw is a free 2 year warranty. This a great reassurance when buying a less known brand and will give you piece of mind that your money is well invested and that the saw will last you a long time. Most of us will use the saw a couple of times then store it for a while before using it again, you want to be sure that is will stay working in good order. If there are any problems you have the warranty to cover you.
The Jobs It Is Suited To
This mitre saw is not really suited to the professional it is more of an occasional use saw that is great for working with smaller bits of wood. If you are looking to work on large timbers that are over 2″ x 4″ and want to have the saw running all day then a more powerful motor and deeper cut will be for you. This is suited to working on things like stud walling, skirting boards, flooring and other smaller woodwork where you need to cut accurate angles that will look good. If you are renovating a house and are working on more cosmetic finish work then this could work well but for more construction based work it could be well worth getting a bigger saw. With all saws double check that size of the materials you will be working with before you make a purchase.
The Round Up
To sum this saw up we have to say it is fantastic value and covers all of the basics very well. It is a saw that will be versatile enough for the DIY enthusiast and has enough power to cut through some tough bits of timber. The warranty gives you a lot of piece of mind. For the more seasoned professional we would recommend reading some of our mid range reviews to get a more robust saw.
The customer reviews for this saw are brilliant and speak volumes about the quality of the product. On Amazon there are many 4+ out of 5 reviews from happy customers. This is always a good measure to look at before you buy.
We hope our VonHaus Multi Purpose Compound Mitre Saw Review has helped in making your purchase decision.
