Found 28th Dec 2016
Bought this 8 days ago through Amazon Warehouse for £20 more (?!) and now the full blown new version direct from Amazon has dropped in price!

£120 - and its got all the brucey bonuses that puts it above a normal mitre saw, its got the laser line/guide, its sliding (which puts it in a totally different bracket!) and it can -45/45 angled too!

Some reviews are interesting to read, but the good far outweighs the bad (4.1/5.0 over 40 reviews). For the money, im happy to give it a punt. Looks the part, looks solid, feels like a nice bit of kit. Projects to start in the new year!

Heres the official blurb

Einhell dual is a sliding mitre saw for machining wood, laminated panels and plastic. The saw head can be tilted to the left and right making it highly flexibile in setting miters on two sides in just one action. An integrated laser marks the cutting line, enabling the workpiece to be positioned quickly and exactly.

The high-quality work tableis made from die-cast aluminium and comes with an exact angle adjustment facility which can be latched single handedly in various positions. The double tube-mounted drag function enables you to cut particularly wide workpieces. whilst the workpiece supports on two sides, a clamping device for reliable securing of the workpiece and a workpiece stop with rails adjustable to the left and right enable safe and exact operation.

Might be ok but I've had a cheapo mitre saw similar to this (but not the same brand) and it never cuts accurately at any angle let alone trying to do something like 45degree corners. It's a fair price but having been caught out with cheaper tools in the past I'd spend some more money, probably £200 and get the Dewalt from screwfix... but that is nearly twice the price of course.

Some of the reviews sound a bit worrying. The one about the plastic guard shattering while in use and causing deep lacerations to the users hand put me off to be honest. And i appreciate time machines are a bit rare, but this was cheaper in February 2016 at £109.41.

I read that review, but he'd used it once ages ago then just got it out his shed and started using it. I would have at least prepped it or checked for rust on the blade or something. I can't imagine this being a normal thing, but that long of non-use must do something to the mech.
