Can anyone give a recommendation on what would be the best miter box to purchase? I see so many some worth $25.00 and Other $100.00 -What is the big difference?


Any imput would be appreciated.

Depends on if you are going to use this professionally or maybe once in a blue moon.


A 100.00 gets you almost a decent hand (not motorized) mitrebox.


I personally would get only a compound mitresaw.  I do this everyday, and like the versatility a compound gives me in one package.  I have a Hitachi 8'' and would like a 10 or maybe a 12 for what it can do.  However, for daily use-the 8-1/4 is the ticket.


One that cuts well and holds a setting/square is worth it.  One that loses settings/square, you might as well guess with a circular saw.


Best of luck.
