Can you rip wood with a miter saw?

Sure.

But then in order to get around the need for a big enough saw, the saws are set up in “fittings” that are attached to the wood. This puts the saw into the middle of two rows of saw teeth, with one in the front, and one out the back toward the edges.

Most saws have two or more sets of teeth. They go in place of the teeth that would normally be in the “middle.” The saw is held in place when being miter sawed.

How long will I have to wait before I can use it?

There’s a bit of a problem with having two sets of teeth.

It takes two minutes to cut through one-half of a 1-by-8 board. That gives you just over 15 seconds to get the saw into the desired angle, and so you get cut through. The longer a cut you can make, the quicker the saw will cut.

There’s more trouble with the second set of teeth, though: Each tooth has four teeth. And that’s four fewer teeth that you can actually see on the back of your saw, because of the lack of a front stop.

If only you had a front stop that goes straight from the front of the saw, you’d be able to see the teeth at the backs of the saws more clearly. (If a front stop was really required, it would help if the saws were set up so that the front stop was on the front of the saw, toward the back ends of the saw teeth, giving a view toward the front teeth.)
