I ran up on this Craftman Miter Saw by accident. Has anyone ever seen one ? It looks like it could be pretty dangerous,especially for the WeekEnd Warrior Novice. :eek:
i don't see what looks dangerous about it but i don't know how adaptable it is to different situations and different sized moldings. i do alot of finish work and i can't rationalize purchasing something like that. i believe a standard compound miter saw is all you'll need. also keep in mind i haven't done any research on that saw, i'm just going by a quick review of your link.
Looks like it would be a pain in the butt when cutting long material. When using roller stands for long material you would need to move them if you made a 90deg sg cut to a 45deg cut.
The saw might be able to make a true 45 deg or 67.5 miter cut. No other miter saw will rotate to 67.5 that I know of.
how many times are you going to make a 67.5 degree cut? i haven't made one in 10 years.
