If the old 10” CMS has served you well, there is no good reason to replace it unless it can’t handle your current usage. I have an OLD B&D miter saw and it works well for my intended purpose, which is framing and general cutting-to-length wood. It is light enough to be portable, unlike today’s 12” CSMS’s. To get the same features and accuracy that I have with my saw, I would have to pay probably 4x more. All I would get for the money would be the cost of inflation, and a few bells and whistles. My philosophy is to stay with tools that have proven themselves over the years, especially in this time of economic woes. I know; it’s nice to go out and buy the latest and greatest, but the novelity will wear off quickly.
Remember, the quality you get today will cost you a lot more than it did 10 years ago. You may be able to afford the $600 for a new saw, but do you really want it that much?
