Miter Saw


I will be installing new moulding and hardwood floors over the next few weeks and thought it would be an excuse to buy a new tool. I'd like to buy a miter saw, but don't think I need a $500 Dewalt with a 12" blade. I'm thinking 10" cover any future needs. I'm curious about which brand might be the best value. I've read about Rigid and they seem decent, but any thoughts would be welcome.

Thanks.

Miter Saw


A 12" blade allows you to cut wider stock.
If you need a saw for general all-around use, a 10" is the way to go.
We have 5 of them that we use most often, over our other sized and type compound saws.

On the professional side:
10" is more portable for standard interior trim installs.
12" is more universal, for wider exterior-trimwork.
