Perhaps a used on off Craigslist or Ebay?  Alternatively, maybe you could
borrow or rent a 10" saw for those projects?  I bought a 10" Hitachi at Home
Depot and use it a lot more often than I thought I would for DIY.  At the
time, I attended the HD woodworking workshop for 30 minutes one Saturday and
got a 15% off coupon that I used to buy the saw.

This has probably been cussed and discussed here but since I am fairly new
to this forum, I need to ask for help/advice please......

I want to buy a mitre saw for use on home projects only. I am not a
carpenter but have several projects in mind as part of the "restoration" 
of this 105 year old craftsman style house we bought a few years ago.

I just looked at saws at home depot and realized I have a dilema: I only
want to spend around $200 at the most but the saws in my price range can
only handle up to 6" boards. The base boards I need to replace in two rooms
are around 8".

Am I screwed unless I buy a bigger saw which would pretty much be wasted on
this "hobbiest" wood worker?
