I have two Ryobi saws, one standard miter saw I bought new way back in 1986 when I started to frame and trim out my house. It has been all over and still runs pretty darn good. My new sliding saw and stand is used for trim and cabinet work. The slide is great as you can get a large board in there and make a perfect cut ( as long as you measure twice, cut once!) New version is not as heavy duty as my 1986 model, but what's new? I also have a Ryobi table saw, not really intended for commercial use but good around the house for home projects, ripping, easy to transport. My Craftsman skill saw was bought back in 1980s and still can do the job.
Hey TNTROY: Send us some pics of your first projects there.
Hey BlueJay: How about pics of that Cabin you built.
Wife: "You can buy anything you want when you redo this house."
Husband: "Could I get that in writing, dear?"
