Q:

What is a double-bevel miter saw?

A:

Quick Answer

A double-bevel miter saw creates angled cuts on either the left or the right side of a material, allowing for cuts in both directions without the need to rearrange the material. For comparison, a single-bevel saw cuts in only one direction, which requires you to flip the material over to cut in the other direction.
