    1. Miter Saw Saw swings right and left to cut up to 45 degrees (come slightly more) can only be used for straight miters

    2. Compound Miter Saw Swings right and left to cut up to 45 degrees (come slightly more), and tilts. Needed for compound cuts

    3. Radial Arm Saw Saw Swings right and left to cut up to 45 degrees (come slightly more), and tilts for compound cuts, plus raises and lowers for rabbit or dado cuts. Has a wider cut but not nearly as accurate or repeatable

    4. Sliding Miter Saw
    Miter saw with a wider cut.
