COMPOUND MITER SAW
Model: DeWalt DW705S 12" Compound Miter Saw
Where Purchased: Amazon
Price Paid: $240 (factory refurbished)
Why Purchased: When cutting long boards, it's often easier to move the tool than it is to move the board. That's one of the nice features of a compound miter saw—it lets you move the saw head without moving the board.
The other nice feature of a compound miter saw is that you can cut unusual angles (such as when cutting crown molding corners) without having to hold the molding up against the saw fence.
Impressions: This saw's motor is strong, and it has a nice fence and table.
If you can justify the expense of a good compound sliding miter saw, then go for it. Otherwise, this is a fine tool that can handle most jobs.
