    miter saw

    Looking to purchase a miter saw. Don't want a slider. Looking for accuracy and durabilty. This saw will be set up permantly on the bench top with extension tables and stops for repetitive cuts. I've used(borrowed) an Hitachi 15" saw in the past and seemed pretty heavy duty. I currently have a Dewalt thats going to be used for installs..its ok, looking for something better. Any thoughts or opinions.

    Hi Doug. I have the Mikita 10" SCMS and think it is a good saw, at least for my usage. A lot of people like the Bosch CMS, and if I were in the market for a CMS, I would certainly give a close look at the Bosch saw in addition to the Mikita.

    I'll check out the Bosch....I should have mention that I want to stick with the 12" model.

    I've owned the Dewalts and the 15" Hitachi. IMO the 15" Hitachi is second to none.

    Hey Doug, I agree with Ken. Take a look at the Bosch. I have a Delta that I am pretty happy with, but I have pretty much become a Bosch fan.

    Doug, if you are looking for a really accurate miter saw, they make ones that are at the same caliber as some of the other tools in your shop. i have no experience with these saws but they are supposed to be built like a tank. i can't remember the name off hand, i will do some searching and see what i can find.

    good luck

    Chris thanks for the info. I plan to get something like the CDT in the future for making mitered cabinet doors. That's down the road.

    Right now it's btween the 15" Hitachi and the Bosch

    Without owning one right now I would also have to do some research, but I have been very happy with everything else I have that has the Bosch name on it.
