My new nightmare is cutting 4x4s precisely.
The inexpensive miter saws only have a 3.5" maximum 90° cut, and the price basically doubles for a saw capable of greater than 4".
Found a chop saw that cuts deep enough and was fairly inexpensive, but nobody could tell me whether the "general purpose cutting wheel" is appropriate for wood.
(And my phone was dead.)
Decided to wait, and upon looking it up when I got home I find that indeed it is not appropriate for wood. The word "explode" came up more than once on various forums discussing the question.
So... crap. Stalled again until I can justify buying $300 minimum for cutting tools.
Of course my little skill saw can cut just over half way through. But I turn it over and, well, I'm not precise. I end up with uneven edges.
