Bosch 4212

Highlight: The up-front bevel lock saves you from reaching around behind the saw.

My two cents: "Has the best fence of the bunch. Super-smooth miter adjustment."

Tool stats: 57 pounds, 3,800 rpm, dual bevel, 40-tooth carbide-tipped blade, one-year warranty, 52 dB. 
Miter/bevel range: 52 degrees left and right/47 degrees left and 46 degrees right. Cross-cut capacity at 90 degrees: 8 inches. Maximum stock height: 4½ inches.

Price: about $660; Bosch
