Are you talking about a wood cutting saw or a metal one?
If you are talking about wood I will be interested in the answer as I am in the market for a new miter saw. I have been thinking about a sliding compound in either 10" or 12". I am not going with Dewalt because I bought a 1/2" hammer drill about a year ago and the 2nd time it was used it caught fire. Naturally it's out of warranty.
If this is a metal saw, I just bought a Hitachi for the shop and everyone likes it.
