I've needed the miter more often than the table, but they're completely different tools for completely different jobs. Buy 'em as you need 'em.

Miter's good for chopping, table's good for ripping. If you have to work with pieces that are bigger than 6" in more than one direction, the miter becomes useless...but trying to cut crown moulding correctly on a table saw is insane. Like Bird, I thik I also use my miter more than the table, but I've used the table quite a bit to build all the furniture I've built. I'd get the miter now, since you're working on moulding, and get the table saw later. You probably don't wanna go the route I went, though...Grizzly is really nice, top-notch equipment, but moving a 425lb table saw is not easy. Cast iron is so badass, though...

In this case, YES.

I thought your avatar was a Ray Lewis / Ice-T lovechild.

I agree about cast iron. Now that I have one, I'll never own anything but iron...

As for he molding, only the length is a bear to handle. Once you have made a table saw sled, miters (even compound) are no big deal.
