A friend just gave me a new Hitachi C8FSE Sliding Miter Saw. The reviews on
Amazon are not very good. It appears that this saw may have quite a few problems.
As a novice woodworker wannabe, what should I be looking for to determine
whether this saw is a defect or return? When I start cutting with it this
weekend, I'll check to make sure the cuts are accurate. One report said the cuts
across a 12" or larger board are not square.
Not knowing how to set it up like a pro will be a disadvantage to early testing,
but hopefully with enough practice, I can get an idea of whether this gracious
gift is a loser.
Do you have any helpful suggestions for testing it out or what to look for?
