A compound sliding miter saw is one of the most useful and time saving tools a homeowner can have - especially if it's set up and ready to go all the time. But most sliding miter saws need about three feet of sliding clearance - taking up tons of valuable shop or storage space. Who wants a three foot deep workbench? Not me.
BUT things are changing! There's a new crop of saws out that need little to no clearance behind the saw - so you can mount the saw on a standard two foot deep cabinet.
