Miter saw help picking a new one

what is everyone using for a miter saw. I want to stick with a 10" does not need to be a sliding CMS.

I have looked at Rigid and Hitachi.

I'm happy with my Delta, but I don't use it every day all day long...

I cut that board three times and it's STILL too short!!!...

I have a Dewalt 12" double bevel. I really like it. I got it on sale for $250.00 in the box. I also have a Delta 10" like it as well.

I'm gonna get abused for even mentioning this brand, but so be it...

I have been very happy with the results I am getting with my B&D Firestorm 10" CMS. Not a fancy saw, but can be had for $100.00 on sale..

I am sure you make really nice stuff with that saw. There are guys out there that can barely cut a 2" x 6" with a SCMS.

I have a Makita 10 inch miter saw which I like a lot. I picked it up at a garage sale several years ago for $75.

I have an old Makita...cast iron 10" miter saw and a 15 Hitachi MS. On the 15" saw I can miter stair risers with the board flat on the fense. Also , It is very quick for crown. Rick

Never... I mean always... never mind Rick
