What is my best bet for a sub $120 mitre saw, primarily for baseboard and other molding. Also, same question for a sub $175 table saw. For the table saw, what am I looking for (i.e. table size, rip cut max, etc.). I'm new to the power tool thing.

Ditto.

My ten year old $450 Craftsman Contractor table was barely suitable new, much better now that I added a better fence system.

Hi mbmjk,
I agree with the previous comments for your miter saw I would recommend the Delta 36-255L 12" (aprox. 125$). I would recommend a 12" vs. 10" especially if you cut anything wider then 5"1/4. Otherwise the Dewalt DW703 10" saw is pretty nice (aprox. 190$).

As for the table saw the Bosch 4000-07 would be a nice addition (aprox 425$)incuding a nice folding stand for versatility.

Hope this helps,

Nick
