I’ve used many miter saws in my career.
In fact, the first one I ever took on a job was a hand-powered one my father-in-law lent me. It was a Stanley saw that had a back saw that fit in two cast-iron guides. It was not bad, but you sure had to hold wood trim tight to get great cuts.
Decades ago I got my first motorized miter saw. I can’t remember the brand, but what a great improvement over the Stanley saw.
The Bosch CM12SD 12-inch miter saw is light years ahead of my first motorized saw and you can’t even compare it to the Stanley saw.

This is a saw you want to put in a workshop and leave it there. It’s not one you want to take in and out of the back of a pickup truck each day at the job site unless you are trying to bulk up to be a wrestler for the WWE. CLICK HERE to buy a Bosch miter saw, including this one.
