If you are in the market for both a 12-inch miter saw and a miter saw stand, HomeDepot has quite the deal for you. For a limited time they have paired up the Ridgid MS1290LZA Sliding Compound Miter Saw w/ Laser and the AC9945 Miter Saw Utility Vehicle (MSUV) stand for only $499. The saw regularly sells for $499 and the MSUV normally sells for $199. A savings of $199 isn't bad.
