    at the shop i work at we used a wet cut band saw, or a dewalt chopsaw with the carbide blade. they both make angled cuts so much easier than a normal abrasive blade chop saw. i think i saw a dry cut bandsaw and harbor freight for about $100 too.

    Ahhhh speed/rafter square it is! I don't know why I didn't think of that, probably because I don't have one. I'll pick one up at the hardware store today.
    I also like the sander idea for even better accuracy. I had been checking the miters with a tri sqaure, marking them, and sanding true with a grinder.
    I have a fairly big furniture project coming up for a client that this will come in very handy for.
    And, BTW sorry if I hi-jacked the original thread.

    Shot, the abrasive saws are all inaccurate, due to blade deflection, not just the cheap ones. I have found that the fiber reinforced wheels are a wee bit more accurate that the regular ones, but they cost a little more.
