A SawmillCreek member recently asked his fellow creekers about the right tool for cutting laminate flooring. He’s eyeing a miter saw in the $300 range, but is open to other suggestions.
Most notable in his questions:
1) Do you recommend a good blade for my Circular or get a Compound Miter Saw for the cross cuts?
2) If a Miter saw is recommended, which one does the average woodworker prefer, and why?:
10” Sliding or a 12” non sliding?
Single or Dual Bevel?
Here’s a round up of answers he got:
Makita LS1013 8 (all votes for the LS1013…)
3) Hitachi: 2 votes total
Hitachi C8FB2 9.5 Amp 8-1/2-Inch Sliding Compound Miter saw
Hitachi C12LCH 15 Amp 12-Inch Compound Miter saw
4) Bosch: 2 votes total
“I have the Bosch 12″ and have been very happy with it.”

5) Delta: 1 vote

6) Festool: 1 vote
