    Miter saw

    Was browsing through old threads as I am saving for a miter saw. It seemed the thread I found was talking a fee gens back of saws. Really leaning towards 12" SCM. With the advancement in manufacturing, have 12" saw deflection been solved? Don't mind going 10" SCM just don't want to regret not having the extra capacity. Thanks
