Miter saws are construction tools. Table saws are woodworking tools.

Here we go again… I call BS on that one. So will anyone here who has a quality miter saw and knows how to square it (like I do). My 5-cut method got it down to under 0.001” per inch. Additionally, I can swing it right to 45º and make a cut, then swing it left to 45º and cut for a flawless 90º miter joint.

On LeeRoy’s mirror frame which was something like 3 foot by 10 foot, using his miter saw, it turned out square to within 1/16” measuring across corners.

So, I wish this myth would stop being propagated. It is just that—a myth.

Shoot, I bet you even hate combination blades.
