There’s a great article in the current issue of Woodworker’s Journal (the August issue) about bargain priced miter saws. They review the gamut and select eight that they recommend. Most of them were less than $300, and the list includes the:
- Bosch Model 3912
- Craftsman Model 21235 Professional
- Delta Machinery Model 36-322L
- DeWalt Model DW715
- Hitachi Model C12FCH
- Makita Model LS1221
- Ridgid Model MS1250LZ
- and the Ryobi Model TS1551
Of course, you’ll want to read the article for the details. They point out numerous feature differences between the eight they selected, and it’s quite informative.
And if you don’t have a miter saw in the shop, go get one. They’re incredibly useful even in a small home shop or garage as they take most of the pain out of wood projects!
