    Ryobi ONE+ 18v 7-1/4" Miter Saw

    Dad picked me up one of these for Christmas... Since I first noticed them on HD's site, they've piqued my interest. Figured they would be a novelty item and never really use it. However, it's not been the case... If you're doing 2x4 work (non-treated), it's a handy little bugger! It's tiny and light... Cuts a nice 90-degree... MUCH easier to drag around than a larger model and its cord.

    Is it a shop necessity? Heck no. But for small, around-the-house jobs, it's actually useful.

    It is a good tool and can really benefit from a blade change! We did a review a while ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aivI-pUCWSo

    I second the motion on the blade change. I just changed the blade on my Ryobi 18v circular saw and ,wow, what a difference. I went with the 5 1/2" Freud thin kerf.

    I haven't seen a tool yet that doesn't need a blade change!

    Nice little saw!

    Some Skilsaws come with a Diablo blade. The Bosch wormdrive 7-14" also had a nice blade.

    Donny I can't believe you changed the awesome blade the Ryobi miter saw came with. OK just kidding I could not even type that with a straight face.

    Being a huge nerd, this thing has found it's true calling... Loaded with a Diablo 7-1/4" 60-tooth finish blade, it's worth its weight in gold for working with small pieces for miniature modeling.

    The D&D campaign I'm DM'ing for is about to get some awesome new terrain. Or at least some little bitty hardwood flooring... LOL

    Using knives and small hand saws is effective enough... But using this little saw is perfect for the task, and with the finish blade, there's practically zero blowout/cleanup.

    Though, starting in on this new hobby, as usual I'm in need of new tools... err... I mean tools. A benchtop sander is next on the list.

    How is the power with the higher tooth count blade?

    I've not actually cut anything bigger than 1" x 1/2" oak with the finer blade... And with that it handles it fine.

    I'll try cutting a 2x4 this weekend.
