Based on a reader tip — thanks, Kelley! — we ran across this interesting combination miter/table saw online. In the pictured mode, it’s a standard miter saw. But by flipping the top over, you can turn it into a small contractor’s table saw as well. The legs fold up to allow you to roll it like a wheelbarrow as well.
The bad news is that right now DeWalt only offers these in Europe. I found one via Google Products retailing for around $1,600 after currency conversion, but I’m not sure that’s a fair comparison to what it’d cost if it were intended for sale in the U.S.
So what do you think? Is this a good idea or just a gimmick? If it cost more like $600 or $700 — you know, around the price of a miter saw and a contractor table saw — would you be interested? Let us know in comments.
