    Hello all. Well, I bought a used Ryobi miter saw off of Craigslist. Paid $60. It had a relatively new blade, and looked to be in good shape. I was happy with the purchase as I made about 2 dozen cuts before it had a problem or two (simultaneously). The brake stopped working, and the blade takes...

    I've been looking to upgrade from an old Harbor Freight 10" miter that has way outlived its purpose and was looking at all of the latest and greatest miter saws out there. Originally I was leaning towards the Dewalt 780 as it seems to be one of the best reviewed for the price (Kapex is out of...

    I bought a Ridgid 12" sliding compound miter saw (MS1290LZA) about two years ago. I honestly could never get the saw to cut square when the slide was fully extended no matter how much I adjusted it. It was off as much as an 1/8 when cutting full width boards. While Ridgid will sell you the...

    Hi everyone, this is my first post so bear with me. I caught the woodworking bug when my fiance decided to task me with one of the thousand "must-haves" she came across on pinterest. It was a wooden disk endtable with iron piping for the legs.. I have always been a handy man, I grew up working...

    I'm still perfecting the designs... but my near dustless Miter Saw Enclosure design and methodology is second to none after just a one week project. The Methodology involves using SketchUp and a few techniques that any SketchUp novice can do after watching my YouTube videos. The Design has the...

    I am getting ready to replace some base board and crown molding in addition to building some nice shelving units and a couple of computer desks and dressers. I was wondering what would be the ideal Miter Saw for the job. I just came across a good deal at my local building supply house. It's...

    Hi all. Just got myself a DeWalt 780 sliding miter saw and had 3 questions come up (so far) in regards to keeping all my fingers. (Note: I'm a 26 year old woman, new to the woodworking scene, so going easy on the jargon is appreciated :) Also, I've already read through the manual with a...

    I'm sure this topic has been done a million times but I've finally out grown my throw together miter saw stand that just sits on sawhorse. I know there are a million ideas out there but I would like to see pictures of yours or your favorite "portable" (preferably on wheels) miter saw stand (or...

    "To slide...or not to slide?"...that is the question! If you have a table saw (with eventual cross cut sled) does it make sense to spend the extra money on a sliding miter saw? If not...with coupons and membership points I could get this for $61 +tax...thoughts...

    I got great advise on buying a used belt driven table saw vs a new direct drive saw from this forum. It saved me a couple of hundred dollars and got me a better machine (Thanks everyone) My question is as I start to build up my shop what tools are still good used vs buying new? My wish list...

    Hi everyone, Very new to woodworking & I need to make dozens of stringer cuts (I think that's the right terminology). The cuts where the steps for the stairs would go. Can not seem to find a tool which will cut 6 inches for example across a 12 inch board. Miter, table & circular saws all cut...

    I am making a miter saw stand and will mainly be using it to cut crown molding for my own house. Is there any benefit to taking the saw into the room where I am installing crown or should I leave it in the garage. If the first, I will build a portable stand to mount on saw horses. If the...

    The left and right fences on my Ryobi (cheapie) miter saw are slightly out of alignment. This is a the typical one-piece fence. I've squared the saw blade to the left fence, but would really like both to be co-planar. Any ideas?
