My 10" sliding miter will do it in one shot, and I don't need to fiddle fart around with batteries.
Yeah sliding isn't much more expensive but far more useful. You can't just flip the board over easily for compound angles especially if it's a long ass/heavy board. Honestly mitre saws are so specialized if you aren't making those sort of repeated cuts it's easier just to use a circular saw. They also arent super useful in a shop cause then you're ripping sheet goods and stuff. Also I know you fools are anal like me but soooo many people dont set the angles on mitre saws (you can adjust the bevel and the table) lots of times I've been on sites where the mitre saw is beat to shit and 90 is more like 85.

That’s nice.

I have a 12” sliding compound mitre saw.

Some people just need a simple chop saw and it doesn’t trigger them them like a bitch, like you.
or we have both. I have a 12 inch slider too, but I only need that when im cutting 6x6s or 12+ inch floorboards.

But most the time.. im cutting dimensional crap, and im doing it far away from the barn, which this is perfect for

HEY GUYS, I FOUND A FREE MITER SAW!


Sure, it's a little small, but if you flip shit back and forth and aren't a fuckin' simpleton, it'll get the job done.
