I received some great input about purchasing my Jet Table saw off Craig’s List a few months back so I am returning to the well.

I currently have a 12 Inch Portable Cable Single Bevel Miter Saw, not a slider. I bought it off Craigs List around 8 years ago. It is definitely older, but it is a beast. I am looking at purchasing replacement because I am about to embark on a kitchen remodel and like having an excuse to get new (used) tools.

Model Saw is Ridid MS1290LZA
Model Stand is Rigid AC9945

List price $225.00

Looks like the Saw Model is still available in stores for a variety of prices from $350 to $600. I have no idea which one this is.

Looks like the Stand model is still available in stores for – $199

I have that stand, with a 10” non-sliding version of that saw on it. if I was a framing contractor it would be awesome. Since I am not, it leaves a lot to be desired. The biggest issue with with the outriggers, the lack of support between the saw and the outrigger, and the fact that the outriggers sag as you extend them out.

I was going to build myself a cart that nested in my bench so that I could roll the cart out and fold the wings out to give me support when I wanted to use the saw away from the bench, but I got lazy and bought this cart instead. I wish I’d have built the cart.

My main gripe is the cart. Saw seems fine for what it is. I gave up on having a hyper-accurate chop saw a long time ago.

I have that Ridgid 12 inch slider, and I like it a lot. With a good blade and some careful set-up, it’s very accurate. Dust control is terrible. I spent all morning using that saw, cutting plywood, and as much as I like the saw, it won’t cut plywood 14 inches wide. Not quite. Of course, that wouldn’t matter if I hadn’t had to cut so many 14 inch boards.

Still…it’s a very good tool. I also have a very good miter saw stand, but a friend gave it to me and I have no idea what brand it is.

Have your say...
