[Lowe's] Bosch Mitre Saw 8-1/2" - Single Bevel Sliding Compound CM8S $375
- Deal Link:
Solid deal on a great saw. I have been using one of these for the past year. Used it to build an addition on my house: it easily took care of all the framing and all of the trim work. It cut everything from 3" thick oak and poplar to 2x12 to TJI floor joists. The portable size is the best part about it. I can carry it one handed in and out of the house. Saw is very accurate: I have have cut 100+ mitered corners with it and they always come out great.
Limitations: it cant cut 4x4 and 6x6 posts. I just use a circular saw for those cuts anyways, I find it easier than dragging heavy posts up onto the saw bed. It is *only* single bevel... but, like most people, I only cut crown moulding about once every 10 years... so its not a big compromise for me, lol.
