Power Tools: Compound sliding miter saw
The Old House Web
The motor and blade slide on two parallel arms. With a blade that measures only 8-1/2", the C8FB2 can cut a 12"-wide board at a 0-degree miter setting. Vertical capacity at 0-degrees bevel is 2-9/16". There are numerous detents for frequently used angles.
At 38-1/2 lb., the tool is light enough to move easily from shop to house or from room to room. Dust collection is moderately effective. The C8FB2 sold for about $370 in September 2004.
