I need practical input from those with experience with miter saws of all types. I want to buy one. I will be buying a compact table saw later. I own and use extensively both a worm drive (USA made Skill "Mag 77") and a direct drive (USA made Skill from the old days) hand circular saw. I would like to buy a 12 inch compound miter saw. What is the difference in use for the sliding dual miter compound saws? I prefer not to buy one due to their even larger footprint and the cost. I will be buying a Bosch regardless of the type of miter saw chosen. Thanks in advance for your help.
Use for this saw will be general carpentry, some trim work but mostly to do general cutting of framing materials and fabrication of wood items of all sorts. No cabinet work, but could be building small enclosures for other purposes. I have a large shop but the space is used up with automotive tool chests, acetylene torch, Lincoln Powermig 255, multiple work benches and floor cabinets (from our kitchen remodel), a large drill press, large Delta disc sander, grinder on a stand, and a Shop Smith stationary/adjustable (48"belt) belt sander, Bosch shop vacuum, four post car lift, steel shelf rack assemblies. I would have to probably set this up on a portable OEM stand or use it outside (my preferred area).
