I got a 10" denali miter saw for $48, I figured I couldn't pass it up, if nothing else it's another blade.
My existing miter saw is name brand though I forget the name at themoment.
the problem with my saw is that it doesn't cut straight. if you cut a 2x4 then flip it over and cut again you get a wedge.
This thing is a much hunkier piece of machine than mine. If it works it's a great deal at $48....
But is denali generally a good brand?
I dunno about Denali. I had use of (I didn't actually own it, but was considered mine)
a top-line Hitachi compound mitre saw during a stint as tecnical director for a theater. All
I can say it was the sweetest saw I ever used. The reality is, like appliances, they're only
made by a few major companies and then other retailers pay for the licensing to stick their
names on them.
You wouldn't know a Troy-Built tiller if you had it to pull in front of your face.
Yes, that's correct; I said "pull" not "push". One of these days you'll actually grow a
garden. Only then will you understand what I post. Your mom shopping at the Whole Foods
Market doesn't count.
I didn't mean to come across as *mean* but perhaps I did. I'm a long time
gardener and like to grow my own produce, in a small way. I was not aware that
Troy-Bilt had a lawn mower available. My bad in this case. Sorry.
Yeah, I feel bad on this one. But for the life of me, I could not picture any other
machine apererati than the tiller; much less with a Honda motor bolted onboard.
My bad. My apologies. And guess what... gardening season is almost here... :^)
I can't imagine why they ever built saws that cut 98% of a 2x6, but they did and I have one and I hate it because that little corner ends up ripping off lots of the wood as it peels away.
But this new monstrosity cuts clean through.
It's not perfectly aligned though, but it's far more straight than my other saw.
All in all, a worthy purchase, but I think it's a little unbalanced, the whole thing shakes a little more than it should when it's running, but cut well it does.
There's a lot of drag on your knees when you bend down with jeans whether you realize it or not, and it's very noticably gone when you wear shorts, so when I work outside like that it's very helpful.
