I was looking at new 1's yesterday.. out of any of them, I would go for the Milwaukee or the better HF 1. they look identical. the DeWalt I looked at was nice, but there was no line to line up for angle cuts, and for $200, that was unacceptable to me. the cheaper Milwaukee or HF had the line to line up for angle cuts

I have a rigid 14" its great i looked in to alot of them and decided the rigid for a few reasons it does angle cuts both directions and has the nice horizontal handle like the dewalt and has a heavy duty base that will not flop around if you let go of the handle while in the down position and has lots of power

angle cuts in both directions would be nice, my sears does not do that and it can be a pain

I just bought the Ridgid R4141, and it is awsome. cast iron base, large clamp and fence. lifetime maintinance parts ( brushes, switches ect... ). $179 from the HD..little research shows the same company that makes Ridgid and Ryobi for the HD makes a lot of power tools for the Sears Craftsmen brand, and chop saws being some of those tools..

I was looking for the Milwaukee 6180-20 but no local supplier had it. it too had a cast base.. The DeWalt that is currently available is pretty much a joke compared to the Ridgid, and $20 more..
