I bought the 12" Milwaukee SCMS for $400 at HD in Vernon about 2 years ago. It is one awesome saw and deadly accurate right from the factory. Just like the manual said it would be.Welcome to the forum N/a. Not sure where you live , but there’s one heck of a sale on Milwaukee 12” compound miter saws including their Milwaukee stand while they last . Not sure if 400 bucks is out of your budget.
If your in the USA , then it’s probably closer to $200
hi everyone i am looking for best budget miter saws for small projects?
I had a Harbor Freight saw for a good while. All I needed was square cuts, so used some epoxy to make sure it didn't shift. Then used a framing saw to make sure it cut straight - not just one try and finished. When I made a test cut the framing square showed the cut as absolutely straight. So, flipped the wood, and cut again. And was absolutely straight on the other side also. Later sold the saw, and regretted it immediately.Don't buy anything used unless you can try it and use an accurate engineer's or combination square to make sure the the trial cut is square, or that you can adjust it square.
