If you remember the thread I started about lending tools to friends,well Today a friend came over with a box full of scrap pieces of hard maple and very dry oak asking me if he could cut them on my miter saw(10” sliding Bosch),well after cutting two or three pieces I heard a loud bang and saw my poor saw blade stock in the middle of a cut,not turning but the motor still humming.
To cut the long story short the miter saw is toast,the fence is bent,the blade teeth broken,the motor makes a grinding noise.I tried to save it but it is beyond repair.
He now insists to pay for it but I don’t know how to go about accepting his offer,he says he would really like to take me to home depot and we buy a similar or better miter saw and he’ll pay half of the cost .
I don’t know if it’s fair on the guy to pay anything over $250 for my used slider but that also means I now have to pay an additional $300 from my own pocket to buy a decent SCMS.
I am only interested in 10” SCMS ,is there a model/brand you recommend?
