    So you think miters saws are new?

    Just saw this. Guess miter saws are not such new idea after all. From a 1925 catalog.

    No, not really. But you bet if I found one I would try to buy it.

    I like saw machines where the motor has a bigger diameter than the blade.

    Jeff,

    You should be able to find older miter saws than that, keep searchin'...

    The electric motor started to appear in woodworking machines around 1907 or 1908, somewhere around then. Louis Allis was the first company to build electric motors for woodworking machinery. I would bet there's similar saws that were produced earlier, but could be wrong...

    Would be cool to have an old Tanny like that though...don't get me wrong!
