If this is a job that is going to be working on varied jobs it could be the one. It offers accurate adjustment of the depth of the cut allowing rebates and grooves to be cut with ease. The cutting capacity is enough to work with a wide range of materials and take on a large number of jobs not just the smaller timbers. There are mitre saws with a larger cut depth but this is pretty good. Back up into the mid price range this is a saw that would suit the professional churning out many varied cuts.

The large cutting capacity means this saw will be at home on the building site and in the home for the DIY enthusiast. It is quick and easy saw to use with a classic design that has worked for many years and has evolved. For someone who wants a saw that is easy and basic to use with the ability to tackle big jobs than look no further.
Still firmly in the mid price range the slide table top mitre saw offers a powerful motor that will run all day long working in the construction industry. This saw operates as a rip saw as well as a mitre saw so you are covering 2 jobs with one tool. It offers a good range of mitre settings which is good for the general user. The cutting capacity is still not the deepest but a great tool none the less. If you are looking to work with construction timbers then you will need to consider a mitre saw with a deeper cut but this will cover all of the smaller timber sizes.
