Re: Workbench Magzine Jan-Feb 2003 Miter Saw review?

I read that article with great interest, as I was in the market for a 12" slider at the time. Workbench ranked the RIDGID fourth out of seven saws, but said the top five saws were close to being equal in performance. On the whole, they seemed to like the RIDGID, but they did criticize it for poor bevel tuning (though they did suggest a simple fix) and for being too big. I haven't seen one, but photos suggest that it's twice the size of many other similar saws.
Thanks to that article, I became aware of bosch's new 12" SCMS and went out of my way to see one before making up my mind. After seeing that Bosch, my decision was easy. I've found it to be an amazing tool, and better, still, now that I have it mounted on a RIDGID miter saw stand. Food for thought, maybe.
