I am going to step in a make some waves..
Paying $1000 for a saw to do some handy man
and make a bit of furniture is not wise use of your
money, even if you have a lot laying around.
I have a 10" Hitachi from Lowes that is a great
saw and I use it a lot. The fence is calibrated and
very accurate, The miter square is good, I use my
miter saw for most cross cuts. The table expands to
the right and to the back and can cut a full sheet of
ply down the center. It also folds up quickly and
has wheels to move it around. It has a built in
dust collection that works. It has a usable tool
holding system for all the parts, fence, square, wrenches
I have used high end saws and some real cheapies,
the saw is no better than the operator.
It cost $199.
My table saw, miter saw and band saw did not cost
$500 combined! I use these every day and if I had
it to do over, I would buy the same thing again.
