I’m with HorizontalMike on this one. I have spent a lot of time looking at miter saws, and came to the conclusion that none of the ones I could afford would do as well as a decent table saw outfitted with sleds and fixtures. I have 3 sleds for my saw, along with a couple of specialty jigs (tenon and box joint). The sleds give me absolute repeatability, which is essential.

I do have a miter saw … a ProTech 10” that I picked up for $89 on sale at Menards about 7 years ago. I use it to rough cut stock before it goes to the table saw to be cut to final dimension. If the stock I am cutting exceeds the capacity of my miter saw, I use a set of saw horses and my framing saw to rough cut.
