The only problem with smaller miter saws, is you will have to use the bevel function on boards over certain height can’t be stood against the fence. That’s a little harder to do.

I experienced this recently with a 10” miter cutting 4 1/4” baseboard.

That said, the saw was a Metabo 10” non slider (used to be Hitachi). IMO for $130 you can’t beat it. My biggest knock is the dust collection is pretty much non existent.

A 12” miter saw will be the best choice IMO. Check out the Rousseau miter saw shroud.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
