    Don't forget a further $20 off with coupon https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/175441

    909 brand

    Appears by the reviews many have picked up for $99 prior which is good using the $20 off coupon. Also noted that for any decent cuts you will probably have to fork out for a decent blade 60+ teeth.

    I got this for $89 when it was on sale for $99 + 10% code. I bought a 100 tooth blade which cost more than the saw when I picked it up. So far I've built an intricate work bench and a 1.8m long 6 draw cabinet with it. Hasn't missed a beat but the key was in the blade ;)

      Captain so this machine is good if you are into DIY carpentry?

    •  

      Hey Tap (or anyone)… would a 'Multi Material' 100T blade be best to cut extruded aluminium? Something like this bad boy: https://www.masters.com.au/product/900050894/bosch-multi-mat...

      I think I'll have many MANY cuts to make for a future project that's all and want to make the cleanest most precise cuts I can on regular DIY'er type equipment (like the saw in this deal) so I don't have to muck around cleaning burrs and filing hundreds of edges etc.

      Any advice would be appreciated, cheers.

        I have the exact same blade on my hitachi drop saw and use it to cut extruded aluminium, arcrylic tube, timber. Does a nice clean cut with no burning. Shop around, i got my Bosch 100T for $50 from trade tools.

        •  

          Whoa, $50! Cheers for the advice TZK! BTW, what saw you running? I'm tempted by this 909 but could also be tempted to get the Bosch version for a couple of hundred more… but I'm not convinced the Bosch stuff really is much better as I've had bad experiences in the past. My full-on 'Professional' grade Bosch gear is all amazing but the domestic stuff doesn't seem to be much better than the generic stuff.

          @SteveAndBelle: I have both a cheapo Ozito drop/slide saw and a Hitachi drop saw. I use the ozito for quick timber cuts with a 60T blade. When i want precision mitres, bevels and alu cuts i use the hitachi.

          If your doing precise mitres and bevels, the cheaper slide saws take a while to get calibrated and suffer from slop in the slide. But you can still acheive very good cuts by just taking it slow and easy.

        •  

          @TZK: Yeah cool. Thanks again! I currently have a little Ozito and the last time I used it for extruded aluminium it worked OK but not well enough. A proper 100T blade would help a LOT however it does slop around a fair bit so I'm thinking a new saw with 100T blade would probably be best.

          All I need to do now is find a $20 off voucher. I have been away so missed the catalogue :(

    The bigger model might be a better deal as it is $199 "with a carbide tipped 40TCT".
    Sounds a lot more useful than the 24T blade included with the above model.

    Or, avoid the play in cheap sliding mitres and get a non-sliding model for half the price:

    Assuming no excess play in the slide mechanism or in the saw arbor, the blade quality is the next priority. And decent miter saw blades cost around $100+ for a good 60 or 80 tooth blade, but they will transform the machine from average to very useable.

    i bought this for under $100. it is ok for basic work. the metal slide rails rust quickly. the brake only seems to be frequently slow to act. it's still working after buildin a fence.

  •  

    the 305mm is pretty dencent price too, save $140.

      blades are more expensive though. if you don't need the extra width then i don't see any advantage.

      •  

        And larger diameter blades are more prone to flex under load, hence possibly not giving as clean a cut either as a smaller diameter, more rigid blade.

    Hi @mkapadia, can you add the brand and model to the title, as per the Title Guidelines. Great job.

    Thanks mattgal.
