Newbie here to the forum and novice wood worker. I'm putting down some laminate flooring in my house and want to buy a Miter Saw. This is my first Miter saw purchase so I want to make sure its a good one. Most of all, I don't want to buy a Miter Saw and have to upgrade it in a year or two when doing more projects (crown molding, bookshelves, etc) and realized I bought a piece of junk or not a advanced enough model.
I’m leaning towards a 10” SCMS based on what others have said about its versatility.
Is a 10" SCMS better than a 12" non-sliding?
The 2 models which seem to have the best reputation are the Bosch 4410L or Makita LS1013.
Also, I went to look at buying a Ridgid MSUV from someone a few blocks away in anticipation of the saw. This retired gentleman has a barely used Ridgid SCMS, MS1290LZ with the Ridgid MSUV for $330 total. It's 2 years old but only used for some ~10 small bird houses and seems to run great.
Is this a good buy for a 12" SCMS and MSUV?
or is the Ridgid MCMS no good?
Thanks for you feedback.
