Chop saw philosophy
In designing (redesigning) a portion of my shop, I'm thinking about moving my miter saw from it's current location. Right now it's about two feet to the left of a wall, giving it 2' on the right of the saw, and about 9.5' on the left. I was considering moving the saw back to the middle of the room and having an equal amount of room on either side.
What would you do in a similar situation? I have a portable table (for the moment) that I could remove the saw from the shop and set it up outside for extremely long pieces. I could also always use the circular saw to rough out the length and refine on the miter. Any particular advantage to having it in the middle outside of not having to reset the angle on compound cuts?
