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.
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.
Great product! I purcahsed this for a present for my wife and it has been amazing. We use it for everything. Just as described - tilt and laser really allow for precision. Great product.
The Craftsman 10" Single Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw (21237) is a great saw for home diy use. It is large enough to do the job but small enough to be portable.
Have a Delta miter saw also,but not sliding and no laser. this is much better saw,but I did pay more for this model. Delta was a budget model. do like the new Craftsman with sliding feature.
The saw works great and is very reasonably priced. The only complaint is the saw dust collector. More saw dust is thrown into the air than is captured.
Great saw for the money one negative dust collection feature does not work well.
Bought as a gift for my mother- she is very happy with it!
