I use a small Delta 8 1/2" miter saw. If I need more capacity I move to the table saw.
Nice thing about this saw is I have two mounts. One is a portable folding clamping table for when I need to work long stock outside. The other is a reclaimed piece of countertop with a sunk base for the saw. The countertop is level with the saw's base to provide support for the stock.
I'd love a bigger saw, but in a single car garage shop, I'm limited.
