Hi everyone, I’m new to the forum and just starting the new hobby of woodworking, I have a lot of things to buy. I just bought a couple of miter saws and was wondering which one to keep the Hitachi 12rsh or the Dewalt 718 I think I’m leaning towards the Dewalt. I would love to hear from anyone that has experience with either or both. I also bought a couple of table saws first I bought a rockwell 34-466 unisaw from the research I’ve done I believe it’s from 1975 S#HE6122. After I bought the unisaw I came across a General 350 it looked to be in great shape so I bought it for $700 although it doesn’t have a fence. I’m having a hard time dating the general it has a S#G 20583. Any suggestions on a fence I want it to be a good one without spending a great deal.

kinda jumpin’ into the hobby with both feet, what with buying multiple items of the same tool.

Both of the miter saws are returnable, they were both on sale last week.

I like some hitachi hand power tools, but for miter I prefer Dewalt.
