Where is the Value at Your Miter Saw?
A miter saw is definitely a worthwhile asset in any power tool collection. Miter saws are great for the PRO and DIYer for all kinds of cuts and can be used on many different types of materials other than wood.
Rather than focus on the different brands and types (i.e. blade size vs board size, single-bevel vs dual-bevel, sliding vs non-sliding, corded vs cordless), let's talk about the VALUE you can create at the saw.
So how do you do this? Well, different types of saws will definitely help with what you're trying to do, but let's talk more along lines that any motion other than the blade going up and down can be considered opportunities to streamline or improve wasted time at the saw. So, if you had a chance to complete a job faster without sacrificing service or accuracy, why wouldn't you do it? Motions such as measuring, marking, searching for pencils/tape measures, or wrestling with boards could all be considered waste.
