Kobalt Compund Mitre
I purchased the Kobalt Compound Miter about 2 weeks ago to do some trim and other round the house projects. I'm no expert but so far it has worked well for me. I did have to adjust the fence angle out of the box, it was slightly off. The Kobalt comes with a 40 tooth Carbide tipped blade.
I compared the Kobalt and the Ryobi before making the purchase and the Kobalt felt sturdier and seemed to have more metal in it than the Ryobi. The Ryobi looked flimsy and cheap by comparison IMHO. The other interesting thing with the Ryobi and the Kobalt is that the Kobalt on the box and on the display said it would do 12" x 3 5/8" maximum, crosscut. The Ryobi said on the box that it would do 12" x 2" maximum, crosscut. They both are 10" saws and they looked the same as far as saw height. Even the salesperson at HD couldn't explain the difference.
