Right now I have a porter cable 12’ miter saw. It is not a sliding miters saw. I still want to keep my porter cable saw but am in need of a slider. A 10 would be fine

I have a Hitachi C8FSE 8-1/2 Sliding Compound Miter Saw on a mobile jobsite miter saw stand that I’ve been using for crown moldings, trim work and cabinet framing. It’s very smooth, deadly accurate and at just under $300.00 it should make a great compliment to your 12” monster which handles your larger cuts.

A GOOD slider is definitely the way to go.

I have a dewalt 10” that I’ve had for a few years. I take it around to jobs. It works great and has taken a beating.

But…. I love my Bosch 12” double compound slider. It sits stationary in my shop and makes me look a lot better than I really am.

Makita 1013 solid and dependable. And with very patient squaring of the fence dead accurate.
Mirror smooth finish with a Freud 60T blade.
Now if I could only find a Hitachi C8FSE 8 1/2” I would buy it in a heartbeat.
