Sweet relief

I have owned three compound miters in my life, this one is the smoothest, most pleasant saw i have ever owned. I was worried about spending the sum this saw required but so far it was definately worth it.

Great,but.....

Great powerful saw with a lot of features, but...dust collector almost useless,be careful with cheap plastic laser set screws, getting strip off if not careful,although there's no reason to touch them other than initial minor adjustment.

Great Saw for the Price.

Very well constructed and easy to use. Came ready to go out of the box. Made only minor adjustments to miter positions. Miter presets made cutting baseboard trim, even around a bay window, very easy.
I highly recommend this saw.

Craftsman Professional 12" Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw

This is the best miter saw I've ever used. It's quiet, accurate and easy to set up. I love the sliding fence. And might I add, it looks great in my shop.

The Craftsman Pro 12 in. dual bevel sliding compound miter saw i

I have wanted a sliding compound miter saw for quite some time now ever since the first time I saw Norm Abrams use one. I have always been a fan of Craftsman tools (not the made in China stuff) and was finally able to purchase this saw. I have an older (made by Emerson) standard 10 inch compound miter saw which is still going strong, but my skills have definitely evolved to the point where it was time to upgrade. This machine is solid, I mean really well built. It has all of the bells and whistles I wanted and the laser is excellent. I recently used it on a very special project and it worked beautifully. I checked to make sure everything was aligned and it was redy to go right out of the box. I know that some people have reservations about using Craftsman power tools on a pro level, but Craftsman got this one right! This machine will stand the test of time.

Great addition to my repertoire of Craftsman shop tools!

<p>Speaking from my personal experience with Craftsman tools since 1976, having purchased and utilized them for many household remodeling and craft projects, this proved to be another fine example of Craftsman quality and the reason Craftsman tools have been my tools of choice for so many years.  Right from the box, no calibration or adjustment was required.  Set-up and operation is quick and easy.  As a Safety Professional and Construction Safety Manager, the one recommendation I have is to include a safety pin (key) for the trigger switch that works similar to the safety keys for other Craftsman tools that prevents inadvertent operation when the handle is grasped should someone forget the unit is plugged in.  </p>

Best saw I've ever used.

<p>I bought this saw for my father, as an upgrade from his 10in Craftsman miter saw. It's literally a world of difference, there is honestly no comparison between this and an entry-level saw. We are both extremely happy with it. In two months of ownership, it's seen everything from 2x6s to crown molding, and every job is easier with this tool.</p>

Truly "Professional" Quality tool!

<p>I'm the type of person who will research a purchase of this type to death before I part with my cash so I don't end up with buyers remorse. I already have the Craftsman 10&quot; Miter Saw and it was OK. I need something to cut wider boards without resorting to my outstanding 20V Craftsman Circular saw. I researched Dewalt, Bosch, Hitachi and even Festool before I decided on the Craftsman. Price was not much different to the Dewalt and Bosch which are both highly rated in the Woodworking Magazine reviews. I wonder sometimes about the varying quality of some of the Craftsman power tools as I have had hit or miss success over the years. I hit a home run with this beauty though! I was expecting to have to dial it in once I got it uncrated and set up. The first few test cuts for accuracy left me with nothing to do but begin cutting. This machine is outstanding. Flawless cuts from the blade supplied with it in all materials. Did a lot of crown molding with this first time out and it was all spot on with the factory settings. Nice one Craftsman!! Truly &quot;Professional&quot; quality machine</p>

well worth the money!

You get what you pay for, if you expect accurate cuts this is the saw for you. No adjustments needed right out of the box. For the money I expected quality but this saw exceeded my expectations. Spend the extra on this saw you wont be disappointed.

sears 12 inch dual sliding compound , every thing you need.

<p>THIS SAW IS ONE OF THE MOST ACCURATE&nbsp; MADE. IT IS SECOND TO NONE IN THE $800.00 DOLLAR RANGE OF OTHER TOP BRANDS ON THE MARKET. TRUE TO THE &quot; T&quot;&nbsp; RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. QUIET, STRONG, NO GIVE OR SLOP, ROCK SOLID. A BIT ON THE HEAVY SIDE ,BUT THAT'S TO BE EXCEPTED FOR THE QUALITY. THE LASER TRAC ON THIS UNIT IS THE BEST WE EVER USED. WE USE THIS TOOL&nbsp; A GOOD FOUR TO SIX HOURS A DAY AT LEAST&nbsp; 4 DAYS PER WEEK&nbsp; FOR THE LAST 8 MONTHS, AND THEY&nbsp; STILL&nbsp; CUT AS ACCURATELY AS THE 1ST DAY OF USE, AND THAT'S TO SAY FOR ALL THREE WE HAVE IN THE FIELD.&nbsp; LOADS OF FEATURES OF EVERY THING YOU WILL EVER NEED OR WISH FOR AS A FINISH CONTRACTOR. THE PRICE IS MORE THAN FAIR. WE WANTED TO WAIT A WHILE BEFORE WE POSTED A REVIEW TO SEE WHAT ABUSE THEY COULD HANDEL ON A DAILY BASIS,TO SAY THE LEAST THEY PROVED GREAT. ONCE YOU PUT IT TO THE TEST YOU WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND A BETTER 12 INCH SAW OF THIS CALIPER. ITS TRULY A GREAT VALUE.</p>

Excellent Saw...

I've been using this saw for a little over a year now. Absolutely amazing. Spot on square with absolutely no problems. The only minus to it is the fact that you have to watch the slides carefully when cutting bevels, it's easy to have them in too far and cut the aluminum (of course, after the first time, it won't happen again:)

All in all 5 Stars. Great product. (Now, if you would kindly raise the bar on the other Professional products e.g. routers and table saw, I'd be happy)
