    I need a sliding mitre for a DIY roof job. I've done roofs before with my cheap non-sliding 200mm mitre and for a lot of the compound cuts I end up needing to finish off with a hand saw.

    I don't need a pro piece of equipment that'll last forever, and I'm impressed with the reviews that the £100 screwfix Titan 210mm single bevel sliding mitre gets (http://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-ttb598msw-210mm-single-bevel-sliding-mitre-saw-240v/73135)

    However, I wonder if I should be pushing the boat out and getting a double bevel. Am I right in thinking that a double isn't going to be able to do anything that a single wouldn't, but it'll mean I spend far less time flipping wood over and re-setting up the saw?

    Thanks

    Sorry that's a confusing thread title isn't it.... The evolution rage was one of the double bevel saws I was considering instead, amongst Erbauer and the like etc.
     
  3. Yeah a double bevel will just make it easier and less time consuming but for a DIY job it's not critical to have.

    Looking at my planned roof angle I think I'm going to need to cut more than 45 degrees on the mitres (50 degrees) so I think that puts me back in £250 dewalt territory :(

    Probably about 50, half of which will be cripple rafters valleys.
