LS1013 vs LS1212
i ‘m in the market for a dual compound miter saw and am wondering if there would be a significant benefit to a 12″ over the 10″. i have my own finish carpentry bussiness and already own a 10″and 12″ miter saw as well as a 10″compound slide but have run into many projects where a dual compound would make life easier.any thoughts?
bigger is better, blade is bigger, has more mass, and will cut smoother
Even with a slider I still prefer to cut crown upsidedownandbackwards, so I personally would still opt for the larger blade.
Also...having only 12" saws instead of a mix of 10" and 12" saws may allow you to share blades between the two. Fewer blades to stock on your end. You already have a 10"/12" mix, think ahead if you'll keep all four saws of pare down your inventory.
I've got a LS1013 that I absolutely love. There have been a few occasions when the bigger blade would have been useful, but it's nice to share expensive blades with my table saw.
??? Usually the hook angle on CMS saws is negative while a table saw uses fairly agressive positive hook blades: IMHO, if you're using the optimum blades on either, then they really aren't interchangeable.
