A miter saw is one of those tools that I wondered what I did before I had it!

Yup! I had a basic manual-type miter box back in California, and when I was here in spring of 2019 planting the flag I needed something similar for a minor task - turns out they've gone out of fashion, but I did find a cheapie with a plastic jig that does a fixed set of commonly-used angles.
During moving-in time, a power-type sliding compound miter saw was on the equipment list, and Hazard Fraught had one on sale that was getting good reviews, so I grabbed one and haven't regretted it a bit.
