I have an older delta/rockwell contractors saw It rips well. So, I complimented that with a Bosch 12” compound sliding miter saw. It crosscuts like a dream. My two tools lets me do the job and still get the last breaths out of my table saw. And the miter saw, for straight cuts up to 12” wide is very, very accurate and a pleasure to use. It is the most used power tool I have. It starts by rough cutting lumber of any length then on to the finish cuts.
Is a table saw really good for compound cuts? Say 21.3 degrees blade tilt along with a 47 degree angle cut? I don’t know. I don’t have a table saw that can do that.
