I don’t have a miter saw, and really don’t have space for one. I cut boards down with a hand held circular saw and a couple of saw benches. Might even switch to a plain hand saw once I pick up a decent rip saw. I trim to final length on the TS.

I do miters on the tablesaw and tune them up with a shooting board. I mostly do furniture.

Now, the Wife and I are talking about installing hardwood flooring in our second floor, and if we do that I’ll pick up at least a chop saw, just so I can move it around. If she starts talking molding (only a few rooms where the builder didn’t install it ) then I’ll get a CMS. Not sure I’ll ever use a slider.
