Topic tags/keywords: miter saw question

Found this on my local CL and I’m looking for more information of the saw. It seems like a good deal, with three diablo blades included. I can’t find the model, and I was wondering if any of you have it, and how much it is new. Thanks. http://rmn.craigslist.org/tls/3432531027.html

Edit: oops… forgot to put the link there on the first go…

Is this the saw ?

Ask the guy why he’s selling it and then offer him $120. I wouldn’t pay any more than that.The blades should have the correct hook angle for that type of saw , otherwise , they could be dangerous to use.
Just because they are 10” blades , don’t make it right : )

If it’s this saw , then it’s a different story !

That saw is the latest version, but I know saws change. I’m not sure that I want to buy it though… saving my cash for a new table saw, and I already have a miter saw, but it’s on its way out. Plus with the reviews that I read after posting this, I think I’ll wait for a quality one.

Shop around look at different brands. My Makita 1013 sliding chopsaw I got at a pawn shop for $120. dead accurate and very reliable, I have never regretted this buy.

Good thoughts. If I had the money on hand, I would have jumped on Home Depot’s black friday sale on the DeWalt 12” dual bevel slider for $400. I’ll check my local pawn shops and see what I can dig up.
