Looking for a solid 12″ compound miter saw. I’m not a pro (more like an experienced amateur), but I know better than to buy cheap. Primary uses will be trim work and furniture components.
I’ve looked over the Makita and the Dewalt (single bevel). Can’t figure out how you’d adjust the Makita, but other than that, I liked the construction and light weight. I’ve never been fond of yellow tools, but understand that their CMS is popular. There are a lot of CMS discussions in the archives, but most seem to be sliders. I don’t really need the width to justify the $$ for the slide.
