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.

Inaccurate and cheap -- broken

I've had this saw for just over 2 years when it broke. Straight out of the box, the angles where close, but not accurate at all. If you want perfectly square cuts or trying to make a picture frame with 45* miters, plan on having some serious gaps. The red angle lock on the bottom of the saw is made of plastic with WAY too much flex. I've seen as much as 2 degrees of deflection. Also, as you screw down to lock the angle in place, it moves away from the angle you originally set. I have spent multiple hours tuning the saw to get an accurate cut, but all the cheap plastic means it doesn't hold true for more than a couple cuts. Additionally, I recently had the screw lock break on me. The screw goes through a nut that is held in place by plastic. While locking an angle in place, the plastic broke so the nut is able to freely move now. I can only cut angles at the notched locations which, again, are very loose in fit. If you are only going to be using this for rough work, all these issues may not be a problem (but I'd just recommend using a circular saw in that case). I've ended up just using this to cut longer boards down to manageable sizes, then cut to their final size/angle on other tools. If you plan on using this to cut accurate angles, like I was, look elsewhere.

After 3 years usage


The Laser start shooting to the opposite direction which is inside the blade cover... it could be the electric issue or what? It happened all sudden.
Other than that, "hold down clamp" cannot hold the object well. "Sliding fence" is not my kind of fence.

But it might works for someone who cannot afford DeWalt or Makita. Actually it is me.

have it

easy assembly, all parts included.


I got the saw on time, THANK YOU! The box was beat up and it was filthy dirty. The dirt cleaned up with a slightly damp cloth, and the saw worked fine for a couple of test cuts so it was ok. The saw dust collection bag was obviously a decoration as after two test cuts, there was zero sawdust in the bag but LOTS all around the saw. This was chinese made, so I am glad I bought the $40 extended warranty. I decided to just hook up the ShopVac for the dust and that worked ok. As this is sliding saw, there is less mess pushing the saw towards the vacuum hose than pulling through the wood. This saw cut a 2X10 neatly and no sanding needed on the ends. I was not mad, as this unit met my expected level of quality. That was why I bought the extended warranty. This saw was the same height as the chinese made miter saw that burnt up and was replaced by this saw. The miter saw only locked in a few predetermined places. Doing creative work making blanket boxes and hope chests, I noticed that this reduced my options to four flat sided boxes. We determined satisfaction if it lasted three years. I had not tried the laser but decided I could try to add that data to my online review. Ordering was difficult and time consuming, but being retired and relaxed about eveythingas the the promised price, the billed price and the final price were not the same. The final amount was good enough and beat the price at a store, plus delivery meant I didn't have to make a 75 mile drive to pick it up at my closest Sears.

Ok tool, Horrible Construction


The saw works good for a $200 saw, a little weak on hardwoods but not too bad. The main problem is with the construction, all the underparts and some outer parts are cheap plastic. I have had the table clamp break twice now due to its poor construction out of cheap plastic.

Good Saw... Bad Dust Collection!


First, I replaced my 12" sliding miter saw because it was way too big for the detail work I do. Out of the box, the Craftsman saw was well adjusted with the exception of the laser. It has enough power to slice through a 4x4 without stressing it. Miters and bevels are accurate. The only serious drawback is the dust removal. I use a powerful vacuum system but the design of the saw, as with most other manufacturers, does not do a good job at designing a system that will capture the dust properly. I will have to custom design a system of capturing the dust towards the suction system. Otherwise, this is a great saw.
