We literally counted our pennies (and quarters, dimes and nickles) and came up with just over $250, and we're going to use it buy ourselves a good mitre saw! About the only thing we know for sure is that we want a good quality compound mitre saw. We will be using it a lot when renovating a building on our property (cutting lots of 2x4's - 2x8's and molding at all angles) and cutting the wood to build a deck.
What do y'all recommend? And of course, if you know of any good sales going on, or if there's a great one for our needs that will give us some money left over, all the better!!
If you don't have specific brand recommendations (or brands to avoid), at least tell me about features - what to definitely get, what I don't really need.
