D R Tom, Have you considered making a lift of some sort to move your miter saw vertically, up to the ceiling? Boat winches are cheap, Horror Frt.
TwoSkies, I totally enjoy using my hand tools, BUT at my age, I'm running out of time and my "to do" list isn't getting any shorter. So I use whatever tool best fits the project at hand. I once had a woman ask "do you use tools to make those?" I was tempted to ask if I looked like a beaver. I've also had people off the far left deep end accuse me of being the blame for causing unemployment because my shop used a CNC router. I also note that on one of the candidate debates, one of the contenders complained about industry using automation and robots, hence reducing the # of people they employed. I'll bet that same person owned a factory made automobile. I'll bet that if 200 years ago there were table saws available, the master furniture maker would have used them in place of the apprentice (slave) labor.
