I was looking at this saw at the local big box store and watched a video or two on You Tube. I like the features so I got to wondering if any of you have one. If so, How does it work for you? Does it make accurate cross cuts and miters?
My criteria is as follows:
I make numerous projects using 1×12 boards purchased locally (white pine). I usually set up a pair of saw horses and cut the boards to rough working lengths using a circular saw. My Delta won’t come near to making the cross cut without flipping the board. When I make a toy box, it really helps if I can cut the boards accurately because I use all of the wood with very little left over. A good smooth cut the first time will help achieve that goal. Example: I cut 31 1/2 inch lengths out of a 96 inch board. Not much left except for sawdust.
Your thoughts appreciated.
