One of the good things about cutting liters by hand is there is really no dust, just a little sawdust that doesn't fly around the room. Cleanup is nothing.

Good point. Except for some cussing and swearing on occasion, the only load noises was the framing hammer and circ saw when I started out.

I had one, from sears, quite a piece of equipment. Later, got a Hitachi chop saw. What a beast.

I should dig it out and put it in the office, lots of memories with that saw. I thought my dad was the greatest builder ever, heís still pretty good
I think you're right you should put it in the office. If you haven't yet. Lol

What I remember most was each nail driven into the miter corner - first you had to turn it tip up and blunt the point with a single hammer blow so it wouldn't split the wood.

Re: First Miter Saw I Used Was Cordless - What About You?


Come to think of it, mine was too. Used it for balsa wood control line model airplanes. I can still smell the nitromethane and castor oil.

Learning to make cuts to 1/64th accuracy as a kid probably both helped and hindered my building career.

I was always envious of these. By the time I was able to get one, this nice, a power one was within reach.

I still use one occasionally. Just yesterday, I had to cut 3 pieces of trim. When I got out the old Makita miter saw, my son laughed a little. He said he was sure I would have cut them by hand. Usually this is when it comes out.

I would like to have a Lion miter though.

Remember that. I was only a couple years ago, I realized I didn't even have hand drive nails in the truck.

That happens to me too. I end up digging through the junk in the bottom of the tool box trying to find a few small finishing nails.

Iíve cut them off the strip several times. But having hand drives is long gone. Iíve been thinking about it. I donít really know when I stopped carrying them
