Likewise, people ask, what is a kerf width?

Kerf is defined as the width of material that is removed by a cutting process. When talking about CNC shape cutting with typical cutting processes, kerf is the width of material that the process removes as it cuts through the plate.

One may also ask, what determines kerf size? Most obviously, the kerf width determines the amount of material that is expended in the cutting process. But kerf width isn't just a matter of economics. The size of the kerf is determined in part by the thickness of the blade plate, and a solid, reliable blade plate is one of the features of a good blade.

Herein, what is the purpose of a kerf board?

The purpose of the kerf board is to reduce tearout on the workpiece. It is necessary to hold the workpiece by hand while cutting a miter because clamps would get in the way of the cut. The capacity to make consistent repetitive cuts is considered one of the true strengths of the sliding compound miter saw.
