Sliding mitre saw

This is a terrific value for the money. It performs as well if not better than other brands costing up to twice as much. It is easy to use and has safety first features. Do not see why anybody would want a non-sliding mitre saw (that most others sell for about same as this) when they can have this one.

OK saw, cheap plastic

The saw is ok - cuts are straight and miters are fairly tight. The laser is difficult to see when using outdoors, even in the shade. My biggest gripe is the sorry plastic "handle" on this saw. After finishing a job the other day, I picked up the saw by the "handle" which pulled apart from where it is attached to the motor housing. Half the screws stripped out of the motor housing and the other half broke through the upper handle's plastic. I have been trying to get replacement parts through parts direct, but the motor handles are backordered for a month! I imagine they replace a lot of these handles. If you buy one of these saws, be sure and not use the handles as handles. Pick up the saw from under the base.

Single Bevel Sliding Saw


I like the saw alot. Only two little things that bug me about it. When the stops are flipped up one is 90 degrees and the other is not. I must diddle with it to make a straight cut. Second there are 4 holes (two front and 2 in back) to put the clamp into. The two in front are not drilled and tapped to allow for a screw for securing the clamp. For some angles it would be nice to be able to use the clamp from the front side.
Other than these small things I love it. And it worked very well and very precise clean cuts. Great price too.

One poor design feature


I bought the saw primarily to be to cut and miter wide boards. I read the reviews and, overall, found good reviews. One review indicated that the saw dust catcher does not work very well. I thought I could live with that. But, when I used the saw and saw dust blew in all directions with almost nothing in the bag, I had to return the saw Unfortunately, I encountered issues when I returned the saw to my local Sears store.
I am very disappointed in the product and with Sears.

Really useful tool, a must have for any DIYer


Have had one of these for hardwood flooring, framing walls, and molding jobs and works great. The sliding action lets you cut wider lengths of wood and come at molding straigh down vs. a top cut that would dull the blade. Works well compared to more expensive units and folds down fairly small. Suggest using it on a table or a rolling cart.

Great saw


I ordered this saw a few weeks ago and it has been amazing except it's a little large for my small shop so if you have a small shop I RECOMEND the compact sliding miter but other that that its a great saw I love it and I would RECOMEND it to anyone

Excellent Saw, but one complaint


This is a great saw for the price. Perfect for your average homeowner. The included blade cuts nice finished edges, the sliders are smooth, and the laser is dead-nuts accurate (some people have complained of it being off a bit, but I think that's just manufacturing issues).

I only have one complaint. Miter saws are inherently messy tools. Dust collection has never really been 100%, but this one in particular is terrible in that respect. After multiple cuts, nearly none of the dust made it into the collection bag. If you actually look at the way the saw was designed, it's obvious why it doesn't collect dust as it should. The saw spits the dust straight back towards the rear of the saw, but the collection inlet is nearly halfway up the blade and not level with the cutting surface. While I understand for the purposes of being able to slide the saw like a radial arm would be inhibited by a lower hanging chute, some simple flexible material (like some other manufacturers use) to help send the dust upward would be a nice addition. Even with a vacuum hooked up to where the bag would go, I only saw ~50% reduction in dust.

The dust issue isn't enough to lower a star on this, as it's a great saw, and it's just the nature of miter saws to be messy.

I love this thing. I create reasons to use it. It makes all the basic cuts you need for baseboard, crown molding, hardwood laminate, whatever. This thing is a beast.

Bought after reading WOOD Magazine review


I needed an efficient and accurate way to cut some 10 inch wide oak stair treads and risers. The WOOD Magazine review gave this saw the thumbs up so I bought it and have been very satisfied with it's performance. I already had a good 10 inch non-sliding compound miter saw and didn't want to invest in an expensive slider. I wasn't sure what to expect from this Sears saw but I would recommend it. I was also prepared to replace the blade that came with the saw with a premium blade but the supplied blade has done a very good job and I have continued using it.

Good saw. For 1 year, anyhow


Bought this 12/2/13. Used it for woodworking, table angle lock was a little finicky but all in all, not bad. Then, after 1 year and 2 weeks, I went to move the table angle, squeezed the handle to release the catch, and it snapped off in my hand. Now that it's past 1 year, well, that's too bad. It's sad but true, that Craftsman doesn't mean what it used to mean: quality.

new miter saw


Have used my saw several times since buying it and it does a great job. I do wish that I would have bought the table that went with it.

Good saw for the money


Picked up saw on sale. Laser and fence were real close. Had to do a little fine tuning on the fence. Can't find an adjustment for the laser.

Great Saw for its Price


It took minimal fiddling with the saw to get it set up for the first cut, which after tweaking a few adjustments was perfectly square (my first test cut was off though because it was not set at the dead stop for the bevel I guess due to the shipping and so i had a slight bevel on my first test cut).

Great saw for the price, but when cutting laser is covered by sawdust due to cover

Great Sliding Miter Saw


I'm just a home DIY'r and love building projects, my current project had me stuck because I couldn't use my hand saw to cut through 1x12 boards, picked this up and so glad I did. I went for the 10" sliding instead of the 12" non-sliding and so far it's working out perfectly. Comes with an already great blade that slices through wood with no problems.

Craftsman 10" sliding compound saw


Great. This product made my job so much easier to frame in my basement. The ease of setting up the bevel and mitre degrees is simple and easy
