Lightweight saw  cuts with power and precision

Lightweight saw cuts with power and precision

05-31-2008 03:12 PM by Loren | 7 comments »

I don’t like the big 10 and 12” Slide compound saws. They aretoo heavy to easily move around. I’m a relatively young man andI am strong, but still I don’t like lifting much more than 40 lbs. if I’m installing trim. I bought this saw because I was doing a job where I had to miter9” wide crown moulding and my older 12” miter saw (not a slider)wasn’t able to do it, even on the flat. The larger a blade on one of these sliding saws, the more ...

new slider on site.

new slider on site.

07-16-2013 12:47 AM by Shawn Masterson | 10 comments »

We had someone steel the new 10” makita slider and the old turd of a dewalt slider from the jobsite last week. we are trimming out a hotel and have to have the tools on sight so the boss picked up a new dewalt at the BORG. I am a fan of the dewalt. I have used this saw 12 hours a day for the last 5 days and it has probably cut a few miles of trim between the two shifts. it was dead nuts right out of the box. it has performed so well that I told him to pick up another one on his way...

Fantastic saw for rough or finish work

Fantastic saw for rough or finish work

02-03-2010 06:15 AM by wannabe | 13 comments »

Hi all, Since I’ve read so much good advice, I thought I’d contribute a little myself. I’ve had the C10FSH for a couple of years now and have to say it is hands down a fantastic saw. It’s a dual bevel 10 inch slider that I bought so I could cut some boards to lay under a shed. I’ve also used it for some fine trim work and hope to use it for some furniture building. It is dead-on accurate and doesn’t need to be readjusted unless you change the blade. ...

Ridgid Compound Sliding Miter Saw MS1290LZA, Up For Review

Ridgid Compound Sliding Miter Saw MS1290LZA, Up For Review

01-06-2015 08:28 PM by woodshopmike | 4 comments »

As usual, I’ll give you a teaser and you can check out the rest of the review on my blog. Here’s the gist. For 95% of woodworkers out there this saw is it. It’s a feature packed saw that does a lot of stuff well but falls just a little short in others. For the price, you can’t beat it. I really wanted to absolutely love with saw and have no faults with it, but since it’s a sliding miter saw there is going to be some amount of play. The slop that was in ...

A vintage miterbox worth owning.

A vintage miterbox worth owning.

07-11-2014 09:28 PM by Brad | 14 comments »

I see many reviews of contemporary tools by modern manufacturers. However, given that many woodworkers purchase vintage tools for their own use, I thought it would be valuable to write a review about one of them. My goal here is to answer the question, “Is a Stanley #60 miterbox worth buying?” Spoiler alert. Answer. Yes, it is. My sample came from an estate sale. It was so minty that I couldn’t resist handing over $15.00 to take it home. Based on the crappy saw han...

Cheap, but works very well

Cheap, but works very well

01-22-2010 02:42 AM by funchuck | 8 comments »

I bought this miter saw about 4 or 5 years ago. It was my second major tool purchase. The first was my $100 Delta table saw. Since then, I’ve used this saw for almost every project I’ve worked on. I’m a hobbyist, so it’s not like I use this everyday though. I am still using the stock blade on it, and it does cut very roughly. I have been meaning to replace that blade with something better soon. It has never broken down and when I set the angles, it doesnR...

I just don't get it anymore.

Update:It was mentioned in a review I wrote about another tool that it took me 20 years before I wrote a review and that as far as he was concerned what I say doesn’t really count. So I thought I would update why it took so long to write my review. I have always been very happy with this tool. It’s done plenty of studs and joists and decks. Cut just great and runs like a champ. My only complaint arose the one time I do not have a table saw and I had to make some precision on a pro...
