I need a mitre saw for home projects (a newbie at best, I'd like to
finish out my basement) and went to home depot to get one. The guy
there swore by DeWalt (which was my original choice since I have other
DeWalt tools - drill, sander), showed me a 10" saw for $200 and gave
me some food for thought.
I went back 2 days later to look at nail guns and saws again, and a
different guy went on and on about the Rigid 10" saw - competitor to
DeWalts. Both are around $200.
What should I get? 2 so called "pros" recommend 2 different saws. I'm
inclined to get the Dewalt because it seems to be more adjustable
(keeping it level) and because it matches my other tools. But the
Rigid has a lifetime warranty (what is DeWalts?) and I do have some
screwdrives etc made by them that I love.
ANY and ALL advice is welcome. I expect the "do what you think is
best' type comments, but I really do need so expert advice and
opinions on this.
