Referring to FIG. 1, a miter saw 100 may include a base assembly 10, a table assembly 11 supported by base assembly 10, and a saw assembly 20 supported by the table assembly 11. Saw assembly 20 may include a support housing 21 rotatably connected to the table assembly 11, at least one rail 22 slidably connected to the support housing 21, a pivotable arm 23 pivotably attached to trunnion 21, a motor 24 supported by the arm 23 and driving a blade 25. Arm 23 may also support an upper blade guard 26, which preferably covers an upper part of blade 25. A lower blade guard (not shown) may be pivotally attached to upper blade guard 26 to cover a lower part of blade 25.
  • Persons skilled in the art will recognize that miter saw 100 as shown is a slide miter saw. However, miter saw 100 may be a non-sliding miter saw by changing the elements in saw assembly 20, as is well known in the art.
  • Referring to FIG. 2, support housing 21 may be held in place against table assembly 11 via a bolt 21B. Support housing 21 preferably carries bevel lock assembly 30. Bevel lock assembly 30 preferably includes a body 31 contacting a flange 11F of table 11. A rod 32 may be threadingly engaged to body 31. Rod 32 preferably extends through support housing 21 until it exits through the top of support housing 21. A handle 33H may attached to rod 32.
  • Alternatively, rod 32 may be captured at one end by body 31, and threadingly engaged to a nut 33, which is attached to handle 33H. Persons skilled in the art will recognize that nut 33 can be a hex adapter to allow repositioning in the event of wear. Accordingly, by rotating handle 33H, body 31 is moved upwardly into locking contact with flange 11F.
  • In order to maintain the proper alignment of rod 32, it may be preferably to provide a clamp 35 that pushes rod 32 into sliding contact with support housing 21.
  • Rod 32 may extend through a washer 34 disposed on a rib of support housing 21. Rod 32 may have a shoulder 32S contacting washer 34 in order to distribute the clamping force unto support housing 21.
  • FIG. 3 illustrates a second embodiment of bevel lock assembly 30, where like numerals refer to like parts. The teachings of the previous embodiment are hereby incorporated by reference.
  • In this embodiment, a shaft 11S may be fixedly attached to table 11 via a pin 11SP. Shaft 11S through support housing 21. Support housing 21 preferably receives a cone 36C. Cone 36C is preferably made of powdered metal.
  • Washer(s) 36W may be disposed on shaft 11S against cone 36C. A nut 36N may threadingly engage shaft 11S, sandwiching washer(s) 36W between nut 36N and cone 36C. Persons skilled in the art will recognize that nut 36N will preferably prevent support housing 21 to separate from table 11.
  • A cupped washer 37C may also be disposed on shaft 11S and around nut 36N, contacting cone 36C. Rod 32 may be disposed adjacent and/or against washer 37C. A washer 37W is preferably disposed on shaft 11S sandwiching rod 32 between washers 37C, 37W. A nut 37N is preferably threadingly engaged to shaft 11S, maintaining washer 37C on shaft 11S.
  • With such arrangement, a user can rotate handle 33H, causing a cam 32C to contact washer 37, pushing cone 36C (and thus support housing 21) into locking contact with table 11. Persons skilled in the art will recognize that such arrangement preferably removes all play between support housing 21 and table 11.
  • Preferably a washer 11W is disposed between table 11 and support housing 21. Washer 11W is preferably made of brass so that table 11 and support 21 (both of which may be made of aluminum) do not contact directly, thus preventing a lock up. Such washer 11W may also reduce the need for grease, so as to improve the locking function.
  • Referring to FIGS. 4-5, it is preferable to provide miter saw 100 with a bevel stop mechanism 40. Bevel stop mechanism 40 preferably includes a member 41 which may be pivotably attached to support housing 21. Member 41 may engage notches 43N disposed on at least one plate 43 (and preferably three plates 43) at predetermined angular bevel positions.
  • Plate(s) 43 may be attached to a flange 11P of table 11 via bolt(s) 43B threadingly engaging flange 11P. Plate(s) 43 may have slot(s) 43S allowing for adjustment of plate(s) 43 prior to tightening of bolt(s) 43B. Such adjustability allows the user to fine tune the predetermined bevel positions.
  • Persons skilled in the art will recognize that it is preferable to have multiple adjustable plates 43 so that different bevel angles may be adjusted separately. For example, the plate 43 containing the zero degree angle notch 43N can be adjusted separately without affecting the plate containing the 45 degree angle notch 43N so long as each angle notch is disposed on a different plate 43.
  • Rod 42 may be connected to member 41. Rod 42 may have a knob 42K. With such arrangement, the user may push down on knob 42K, moving rod 42 downwardly, causing member 41 to move from a first position engaging notch 43N into a second position bypassing notch 43N. The user can then change the angular bevel position of support housing 21 (and thus of saw assembly 20).
  • A spring 44 may be disposed in support housing 21 to bias member 41 towards the first position.
  • Persons skilled in the art will recognize that rod 42 may be integrally formed with member 41. In such case, member 41 need not be pivotally attached to support housing 21, allowing the user to jointly move rod 42 and member 41 between the first and second positions.
  • FIGS. 6-7 illustrate a second embodiment of bevel stop assembly 40, where like numerals refer to like parts. The teachings of the previous embodiment are hereby incorporated by reference.
  • There are three main differences between the first and second embodiments. First, member 41 may be disposed on a spring plate 41S which is preferably bolted or affixed to support housing 21. Spring plate 41S preferably biases member 41 towards the first position engaging notch 43N.
  • Second, cam assembly 46 may be used to move member 41 between the first and second positions, rather than rod 42. Cam assembly 46 may have a cam 46C disposed underneath member 41. Cam 46C may be connected to a handle 46H disposed outside of support housing 21. Accordingly, a user would preferably rotate handle 46H, causing cam 46C to rotate, lifting member 41 out of engagement with notch 43N. Persons skilled in the art will recognize that cam 46C is preferably connected to two handles 46H, each handle disposed on each side of support housing 21.
  • Third, like in the previous embodiment, at least one plate 43 may have a slot 43S to provide for adjustability of the notch(es) 43N. Some plate(s) 43 may have instead a hole, while flange 11P may have a slot 11PS. As shown in FIG. 7, bolt 43B may be inserted through plate 43, through slot 11PS (and thus through flange 11P), through a washer 43N and threadingly engage nut 43BN. Persons skilled in the art will recognize that such plate 43 can be adjusted by moving bolt 43B along slot 11PS. Such adjustment may be made by rotating screw 47, which preferably threadingly engages flange 11P and contacts bolt 43B, pushing bolt 43B along slot 11PS.
  • FIG. 8 illustrates a third embodiment of bevel stop assembly 40, where like numerals refer to like parts. The teachings of the previous embodiments are hereby incorporated by reference.
  • The main difference between the previous embodiments is that a member 48 has a detent 48D engaging detent notch 43N. Member 48 is preferably affixed to support housing 21 via bolts 48B. Detent 48D preferably snuggly engages detent notch 43N.
  • Member 48 may have a channel 48C which receives rod 42 therethrough. Member 48 may have a cam portion 48CC which contacts a cam surface 42CS on rod 42. With such arrangement, the user can move knob 42K (and thus rod 42) downwardly. As cam surface 42CS contacts portion 48CC, portion 48CC (and thus detent 48D) moves towards support housing 21, thus disengaging detent notch 43N.
  • Persons skilled in the art will recognize that it is desirable that portions of member 48 be made of a resilient material, such as spring steel, in order to bias detent 48D towards the first position, i.e., engaging detent notch 43N.
  • FIG. 9 illustrates a fourth embodiment of bevel stop assembly 40, where like numerals refer to like parts. The teachings of the previous embodiments are hereby incorporated by reference.
  • The main difference between the previous embodiments is that detent 48D engaging detent notch 43N from the front. A link 49 can be moved towards member 48 when the user moves knob 42K (and thus rod 42) downwardly. As cam surface 42CS contacts link 49, link 49 contacts member 48 and moves member 48 (and thus detent 48D) moves away from support housing 21, thus disengaging detent notch 43N.
  • Persons skilled in the art may recognize other additions or alternatives to the means disclosed herein. However, all these additions and/or alterations are considered to be equivalents of the present invention.
