Hain Co. Digital Cutting StationAs much as we like many of the miter saw stations available today, this cutting station is one of a kind. The Hain Co. in Diamond Springs, Calif., has developed a jobsite version of its factory component-manufacturing technology that'll bring digital precision and automation into your more humble operations. The Folding Measuring System (FMEA) is a high-tech, portable, miter saw cutting station that uses electronic controls near the saw to automatically set one of a series of automated board stops to within 1/32 inch, no tape measure involved. Company execs assure us you don't have to be an electrical or mechanical engineer to operate the station. The Hain Co. FMEA: 12-foot, $5,000; 6-foot table-top, $2,800. 530-295-8068.
