The Milwaukee 6955-20 is a 12-inch dual bevel miter saw. It features a fine adjustment function for the miter angle with a digital display. It can override the angle lock mechanism to allow you to dial in ultra precise miter angles. This can be especially useful if you are working in an environment that is not perfectly square, for example. The fine adjust feature is designed so that you can make adjustments with one hand while holding the work piece steady and firm with the other hand. The self-zeroing system on the miter fine adjust mechanism works throughout the miter angle range.
When working with a rotating blade it is essential that everything is adequately lit so that you have a clear vision of all parts. The Milwaukee 6955-20 caters for that by having two built-in lights, one on either side of the blade, that fully illuminate the work piece, the blade and any line drawn for the cut. Unlike many saws, the Milwaukee 6955-20 features a soft start mechanism. The blade takes just two seconds to get up to full speed, but those two seconds allow you time to enter the cut line more safely and without causing damage.

Fine Adjust on the Miter Angle Lets You Dial-In Ultra Precise Angles
The Milwaukee 6955-20 lets you choose angles to an accuracy of 0.1 of a degree. It has a detent override that lets you break out of the locking system to literally dial in a very precise angle setting. Furthermore, this can be achieved with the use of one hand only. This means that you can continue to hold the work piece firmly with one hand while safely setting the fine adjust of the miter angle with the other hand.
Built-In Lights to Fully Illuminate the Blade and Work Piece
The Milwaukee 6955-20 has two built-in lights to add all the illumination you need. Often it is necessary to add lights to a saw system to increase visibility. This is rarely satisfactory. The Milwaukee 6955-20 lets you clearly see the blade and the cut line. The saw also has a built-in dust channel that can capture up to 75% of all the dust and debris resulting from the cutting action. This also works to help with visibility of the blade and cutting area.
