Not quite the first, but by the same company that made the first. Tannewitz Works started making “Portible Bench Saws” around 1925.

The only real difference is the leg design was blockier on the early ones. Maybe a smaller blade too. GREAT machines, still to this day the best miter saws I’ve ever seen in terms of precision.

I saw the one I know of in a small custom frame store. They just cut the frame with it and took a tiny slice with a miter trimmer.

That thing looks cool!

Honestly though, by the looks of it, I think it was THE first mitre saw ever produced! ;-)

I e:mailed the guiy and asked what brand and model number it is. He replied and said that it’s a Grutter. So I did some searching on the net and found out that they made some industrial upcut saws also.
