10" MiterMate Miter Saw Makes Work Simple
Moulding, baseboard and framing projects couldn't get much simpler than they are with the Craftsman 10" MiterMate™ miter saw. Use Craftsman's innovative Angle Finder system to measure the wall, it works on an outside or inside corner, then use the measuring tool to set the saw's adjustable V-fence. Voila! Instant accuracy and perfect joints. If you're the type who likes to double check, though, the Laser Trac® system can let you preview before you commit to the cut.
With a 15-amp motor, the 10" MiterMate™ miter saw can shave through wood and other building materials. It's preset with angles for the most common miter and bevel cuts. It can do cross and compound cuts as well.

It's lightweight but very powerful. The laser guide is pre-aimed and true to where the blade cut will be. I've used it for a deck project for far - nothing but straight cuts - but it seems to do the job well and chews through 4x4 pieces of lumbar like they're candy. I will admit that what put me over the top on this particular model was the price. Craftsman quality at a cheap tool outlet price? Yes please.
My previous saw was a Sears Craftsman Pro-Series sliding compound miter saw that bought in the mid 90's. I've done two whole-house remodels with that saw, but had a miserable time getting tight joints on stain quality trim with the last house (complex craftsman style home) remodel. There were lots of nice things about the saw (solid construction, incredibly rugged, reasonably accurate), but with another trim job ahead of me, thought that 20 years later, someone must have thought up a better way. I read a lot of reviews on a lot of saws, and narrowed to a Dewalt that was highly regarded by professionals and DIYers (very accurate, high quality, robust) and the MiterMate (love or hate). The reviews were invaluable: they gave me an idea of the issues (how to deal with having to reposition the saw with different angle cuts; space needs, laser inaccuracy, etc.) with the saw so I was prepared. There was a $50 off promotion at Christmas and one last unit at my local Sears store, so I decided to take a chance. I figured if it didn't work, I would simply return it and get the Dewalt. Making a lazy susan was easy and inexpensive. Got a stock piece of plywood that was pre-cut in a 2 ft diameter and 1 1/2" dia hardwood dowel from the local Mr. Plywood for under $10. Cut the dowel to about 3/4" long, and screwed it to the center of the plywood. Drilled a blind hole 1 1/2" diameter in a scrap 4'x 1 1/2' board and dropped in the dowel with plywood: custom lazy susan in about 15 minutes. The lazy susan takes away all of the repositioning problems of the moveable fence/stationary saw (Sears: you should provide this as an accessory). Surprise, surprise, Sears Crafstman has indeed come up with a better way. This saw results in amazingly precise cuts, first time, no do-overs, in a fraction of the time. It is far, far easier and more precise using their innovative measurement tool to transfer the dimensions directly to the tool. I never realized how much corners that look perfectly perpendicular could be wildly off in an older home. No corner was 90 degrees. This saw drastically reduces measurement error and setup error on the saw and gives you incredibly tight fitting corners. There are many, many thoughtful design features that only someone who does a lot of trim work would appreciate. The fence is knurled, so your trim pieces don't slip during the cut (something that happened with my previous saw). The fence is tall and substantial, giving you a lot of added leverage to hold the pieces in place. The support extensions have features that allow you to compensate for warped wood. I replaced the blade with a high quality diablo trim blade. The cuts are perfect. I can't say enough positive things about this saw. It has completely removed my anxiety about trimming out another house and is now my favorite tool. Incredible value even at full price. Well done, Sears engineers, designers, and product testers.
I really like this saw, but I got tripped up on the manual wording. It says to place the molding upside down such that the fence would be like the wall and the table would be the ceiling. This makes sense since you mark your cuts against the wall and need the laser to line up those cuts. Then the chart on page 34 says on an inside corner that the "right side of the wall" should use the left side of the saw. I mistakenly interpreted the right side of the wall with the left inside corner. (The only way this would work is if you put the moulding wall side down against the fence ... I did see one youtube video use this approach but you cannot see your wall mark). I think what they meant instead of "right side of the wall" is for the "right inside corner" use the left side of the saw with the moulding upside down.
we bought this miter saw for our son in law and daughter for Christmas. Since it is not Christmas yet, I cannot tell you how well it actually works, but I do think that they will be very excited to receive it. My wife and I looked at many different brands before deciding on this Craftsman. It seemed like the best saw and the best features for the money. If it does what it says that it will I know that they will be very happy with it. It seems to be very well built and very sturdy....which is what we were looking for. We also like the fact that it has a laser guide for cutting. The angle measuring tool that comes with it also seems very cool...and unique to this saw.
After understanding the limitations of this saw, I mounted a homemade lazy Suzan onto the craftsman miter saw stand and then placed the saw on the lazy Susan. Now the saw can rotate to accommodate cutting longer pieces of wood at any angle. This is my first miter saw and I rate it 5stars since it has the same capabilities of a 10inch single bevel compound saw and the ability to find angles with ease. Thanks to all of those who posted reviews both positive and negative. I feel I made a great choice.
The saw performs exactly as it says. Yes, you need room to use it because the arm doesn't swing left / right. You change the position of the wood. But, that's expected. The product description says that. My one issue would be the right fence. In some positions, you cannot move it in close enough for short pieces, because there is interference with the saw motor when you try to cut. Limits the depth of the cut. That's the only negative issue so far. The angle accuracies seem good. Very little error will make a big difference. The angle finder is very handy and easy to use. One of the features that drew me to this saw. So far, it's been a good investment.

I bought this product because my brother recommended it. I bought it on sale and reviewed the youtube video. This was my first saw and so far it has been great. Easy to use and I like the security features too. I'm making miter cuts as well as straight.
I recently bought this saw I needed a saw to trim out both bathrooms and it does an excellent job. I looked on internet to see what 10' miter saw was rated best I couldn't believe it but it was this sears miter saw! I found out a lot of the other saws the fence were bent or would bend easy I think this saw will be great on my next job hardwood flooring!
This thing is great for getting trim done quick. No walls are perfect 90 degree corners and this saw corrects it for you. If you can find a video on this, watch it. So easy. Only thing that could make this better is if they made it with a 12" blade and added ability to slide. It's great like it is though. People think I have a lot of experience in doing trim, but it's really the saw. Beware though that the stands might not hold it, bolt pattern is different. The guy at sears told me they connect to all of them. They don't, but a piece of plywood can easily be attached. It's worth it. If you found this review helpful please click the icon.
