    Hi all,

    I am a DIYer.

    Does anyone have any comments on the 10" Rexon comp. mitre saw (laser guide) for approx 150 drinking tickets?

    I need a biggish one for the rafters and joists of a pitched roof for a garage that I am building which has some seriously some funny angles (or at least, this is the excuse) but I can't afford the £4-500 for a 'serious name'jobby.

    Any other recommendations?

    Thanks for any replies?

    Cheers

    Both Electra Beckum (parent company Makita) and Ryobi do saws similar to the rexon saw (would'nt touch it with a very long stick!) Take a look at http://www.protrade.co.uk/shop/ they'll happily supply to trade and retail customers alike; great service too.

    The laser aspect of most of these saws frankly doesnt work very well in normal light also if you want to cut joists and rafters you will need a sliding compound saw which enables you to cut thicker wood.

    go to rutlands tool site &look at the "fox" sliding mitre saw you wont even break the £300 barrier ,its big &means business. My mate did ,Ive used it and only a couple of niggles but Ican be fussy.

    Without a shadow of a doubt, get yourself into Costco by hook or by crook, and buy yourself the Ryoby rts1425 sliding mitre saw, it will set you back the massive sum of £90.00 it comes with lots of bits including a laser line for very acurate cutting.
    Its not got the big name but its cut everything i have thrown at it ( just built very large extension )
    For £90 there is nothing out there to touch it.

    Thanks again in advance.

    Yo Jules,

    The Ryobi RTS1425 seems to be a table saw - not a sliding mitre saw... could you confirm the code, please?

    Thanks

    Cheers, matey
