Just a quick miter station for my fancy new Makita miter saw.

Very nice. I don’t see any rulers glued to the back yet though. Does it have stops for repeat cutting?

No rule. I rarely, if ever, use the rules on anything other than my tape measure and my metal rules. I made a few adjustable stops that slide in the t-track for batch cutting.

Mark -
This is beautiful. Like your new saw. What made you pick the Makita over other brands? I agree with you on measuring tapes – I typically measure from my blade and set a stop block.

Ya why did you go with the Makita, I’d have thought Powermatic would have sent you one…mr. Domino months before the rest of us. Beutiful work, great podcast, still a big fan, you are checking out spring training baseball thought right? seeing as you do live in arizona

I chose the Makita based on general reviews and consensus on its accuracy. Seemed to be the best choice for “fine woodworking”. Not to mention I got a killer deal on Amazon last week.
That would indeed be great if Powermatic came out with a miter saw. Come to think of it, why the heck dont they have one yet?

So Shawn. What you are telling me is that they play baseball in Arizona? In the spring?? News to me. :)

my first thought was: is it the table we are looking at or the new toy?? I mean tool?? hehehee

I also notice that the blue matched the other blue thingy posted in the wall storage unit. Your decor is coming along nicely.

I noticed you put it right in front of the airconditioner. You must be planning to spend a lot of hot days there. That a very nice miter station.

Marc, from the reading I’ve done, you chose the right miter saw. I like the simplicity of the station.

Shawn, you can only have so much powermatic equipment. And he isn’t telling us how he got it either. I think he married Mr. Powermatic’s Granddaughter.The Gold Standard since 1921.

Don’t poke fun. Mr. Powermatic’s granddaughter doesn’t like it when you poke fun. :)
