Looking for a second hand circular saw or miter saw, if any you Forumosans out there have it I am interested. In addition if anyone knows of a good place to buy a new one I would be interested.
For used, Taipei city, go to Kang Ding Road, at the corner Gui Lin Road in Wan Hua, not far from Long Shan temple and the Wan Hua YMCA.
For new tools, any of the pro supply shops you find anywhere. Including the aforementioned shops on Tai Yuan Road and Huan He in Taipei city. As pro supply shops they have catalogs and will order from the Taiwan agent/distributor for you. That's what I did for my router and circular saw. I looked up the models I wanted on the Makita Maktek website, wrote down the model numbers, went to get some prices, haggled a bit, and then ordered. Buy shopping around a bit, I saved a couple hundred NT. Picked them up a few days later.
I bought a Maktek saw. Maktek is the budget line for Makita. the baseplate for my circular was cheap stamped steel, and not as easy to true as a higher end pro Makita, but it came with the exact same high end carbide blade. The great blade made it worth it. I also got a Maktek trim router. Good price for a light duty router.
