Should I purchase a miter saw?!


I had an el cheapo one from Canadian Tire, $89. I used it for years and cursed it just about every time I used it. I have since bought a Dewalt with the stand, it was about 200 (Got a good deal, came with a cordless drill) I wish I had bought a proper saw a long time ago, the accuracy is far superior and it just works better.

I find with almost every tool I buy I use it way more than I thought I would. I try to buy one quality tool for each project I do.

Thanks guys. Was hoping this would work.... Only $99. I think their was a ridgid next to it on the shelf that said it was capable of 4 5/8 on fence. I'll have to look again think it was an extra $80 .... Good idea though I'll get a scrap piece and check em out.

Just about any Mitre saw will do for baseboards, the tallest ones I have seen are about 6" so you just lay them flat and bevel your angle into them. Where it gets trickier is with crown moulding. You have te really check what you are buying if you intend to do crouwn moulding.

I would spend the money for a nice one. I would even go with a 12" slider. Although more expensive, I use mine all the time. I work for myself and I use it for trim, decks and most everything else under the sun. A nice miter saw on a good table in invaluable. When I finish basements I normally cut all the 2 x's with mine too.
