Bevel Cuts Click to see larger view Figure 3-7. Some examples of how miter cuts can be used to form four-, six- and eight-sided projects. Bevel cuts are made with the worktable positioned at an angle other than 90° to the blade. Slide the carriage and the power plant all the way to the right. This will allow you to move the workpiece freely across the table without interfering with the way tubes. The angle considerations that apply to miters also apply to cross miters and bevels.
To make a crosscut bevel, set the worktable at the desired angle and use the miter gauge to guide the workpiece (Figure 3-8). Mount the miter gauge on the downside of the table only. This will provide better support for the workpiece, help eliminate kickbacks, keep the miter gauge from hitting the blade, and keep your hands out of danger. Rip Bevels Click to see larger view Figure 3-9. Rip bevels are made with the table tilted and the workpiece usually riding against the rip fence.
Warning: Mount the rip fence on the downside of the table to provide better support for the workpiece, help eliminate kick-back, and keep your hands out of danger. On the Model 500 there will be times when the width of a workpiece will prevent you from using the rip fence.
