    Which Slider Miter Saw to buy?

    My son is starting a shop from scratch and looking for the best miter/slider saw to buy. Best = accurate, repeatable, reasonable cross cut capacity, dust collection, and reliable. (Edit: added dust collection)

    He has just bought a new house with a full basement and will be building out his woodworking shop. He will set it up on a station and it will not be used as a portable. He will be building furniture, cabinets, and other woodworking projects as a hobby. He is a mechanical engineer, has a discerning eye for tools and has done a lot of woodworking in my shop. I have an older slider that works extremely well and he has used it.

    Cost is always important but in this case it is not the constraint. I personally have a lot of Festool equipment but I am not sure I would recommend the Kapex to him.

    So what would you recommend to him?
