Help! I'm pulling my hair out trying to decide between the Bosch 3915 and Makita LS 1013 10" Sliding Compound Miter Saws. It will be used for a bit of everything (framing, cabinet/built-ins, stairs, moldings -- some large base and crown)and I only want to do this once considering the price of a mistake.
I've had my hands on the Makita and really like how it feels. Like the table, rail action, fence, and overall ergonomics. I'm concerned that it doesn't have detents or markings for cutting crown on the flat. I like the double bevel feature but not sure if this is a deal maker or not. Any insight from someone who owns this saw on how easy it is to hit the right crown settings?
I'm trying to locate a Bosch locally to get my hands on, no luck yet. It has the crown detents on miter and bevel. Seems to get good reviews. Has larger miter capacity but only bevels left(again not sure if these are deal makers or breakers though). Anyone who owns this have any insight or regrets?
Anyone out there had time behind both of them? Please let me know what you think.
