I need a sliding mitre saw as my current mitre saw hasn't the capacity to cut the width I need. And before any one says 'do it manually', I have 5 rooms worth of skirting to do (and I've just fitted 120m of flooring) plus many other 'tasks'.
So looking around I reckon I need a minimum 250mm blade and an ability to cut mitre's from both sides (mainly as I'm not trained, just DIY, so struggle with 'angles'...). I was thinking of a max of £300, or are the £120 ones decent enough? I'd like trenching ability too. Any thing else I should consider?
My current one is a Ferm and I'll be keeping, probably for fire-wood duties. The saw will be attached to this stand (which I can absolutely recommend):
