Well, my trusty, 14 year old 10” Delta compound miter box just ended its many years of dependable service…
So I’m looking to replace it, and would appreciate any feedback you all might have on what I’ve found so far.
I want to replace it with a 12” single or double compound saw. I don’t need (or have the room) for a slider. I want it to be accurate, adjustable, well constructed and reasonably priced. An adjustable laser would be nice but is not required. Here is the list I’ve come up with so far…
Dewalt 715/716 $269 at Amazon or HD/400 at ebay
Hitachi C12FDH $292 at Amazon
Rigid R4120 (w/laser) $300 at HD
Bosch 3912, $327 at Amazon and ebay.
Makita LS 1221, $329 at Amazon and HD
Crapsman 21235 $300 at Amazon
Porter Cable pcb 120ms: $250 at ebay
From what I’ve looked at in the past, I’ve been impressed by the Bosch, but I wonder if its worth the extra $$
The PC seems like a good deal…but I’ve never played around with the saw in store.
Anyway, any feedback anyone has had with any of the above will be much appreciated.
