    3 improvements to make your budget miter saw work like a pro.

    Hello,

    Thanks to 3 simple improvements, I turned my budget miter saw into a pro version. Now the miter saw is more accurate and much easier to work with.

    I hope I can inspire you with this video.
    I made this for people like me who are on a budget and who cannot buy a more expensive brand.
    Greetings

    I'm not a carpenter or cabinetmaker, but to enclose ceiling, it needs sealing off at ends of trusses. The brick walls are capped with 2 x 12 lumber where the trusses rest.
    Christofix's miter setup looks ideal, with over a 100 to cut. Original plan was 2 pieces overlapping towards middle for an 'adjustable' width, sealing at face of truss joist. I've measured a few, surprisingly consistent 24" centers and 22.5 space. They must have used a block to gauge that. I'll utilize that and halve work involved.
    Sincerely,
