no previous part Part 1 of Miter Saw Station series Part 2: Almost there! »

Aside from the table saw, the miter saw is probably the most versatile tool not only in your shop but on the trucks of carpenters around the world. The Skil miter saw that I own cuts great, keeps aligned properly without much hassle, and is rock solid. The biggest downfall is dust collection….well rather lack thereof. Just cutting out the pieces for one of Jay’s Benches, left the shop covered in a layer of dust. The included bag simply does not catch a lot of the dust nor does the blade’s safety/dust shroud contain it very well either.

Part 2 (and maybe 3) coming soon!

Full article, more photos, and Sketchup file are on my website!
