I'm considering buying Hitachi's 8.5" SCM saw... most who have one seem
to be happy with it. Literature seems to claim that a 1x12 lying flat
and cut at 0 degrees (or 90, depending on your point of view) can be
done without flipping the board over ... can anyone verify that?
One of the jobs I have in mind is a good bit of basic shelf building
using alot of 1x12's and smaller stuff.
I'll probably buy one anyway, but I'd like to know what to expect.
Given that it's a slider, the width of cut can be totally independent of
However, a 10" would be able to cut thicker material (about 3/4"
thicker, or half the difference in blade diameter).
Keep in mind that the one you are looking at is probably spec'ed out to what
is indicated on the box. With that however a 10 year old saw has probably
changed design some what and may or may not have the same spec.
