Using a table saw and a 12-inch miter saw on flooring projects is like using railroad spikes for nails – way too much tool for the job. The Skil Flooring Saw combines the functions of a table saw and a miter saw in one easy-to-carry 25-pound unit. The 7-amp tool slides along dual rails for square cuts and miters and locks into place for rips. An adjustable fence changes locations depending on the type of cut. With its 5-3/8-inch blade it can cut material up to 3/4 inch thick and make rips between 1 inch and 8-1/4 inches wide. The maximum crosscut is 15 inches for square cuts and 8-1/4 inches for 45-degree miters.
