This is an older (~20yr) miter saw that is 100% functional with the following exceptions:
1) There is no way to "lock" the desired angle once it is set, so sometimes when you set the angle to 45 degrees (or whatever) and then start to make the cut, the angle can change. This typically only happens when you have pressure on the saw handle that changes the angle, nevertheless it is frustrating when it happen. There is nothing broken here, just the way the saw was designed.

2) I have trouble making precision miter cuts with this saw, it can make any cut at most any angle, and for rough cuts it is fine, but precision cuts often seem a little off.

For "chop" cutting and rough angel\miter cuts the saw works fine - precision angels are the only area where it doesn't work well.

Wifee bought me a new saw so selling this one, will take the best offer I get in the next week.
