      A Craftsman 10' Sliding Compound Miter Saw Gets the Job Done Precisely Right

      Smooth cutting with laser guided precision, lightweight, portable and slicing seamlessly through thick materials, the Craftsman 10' single bevel sliding compound miter saw is the perfect addition to a job site and home shop alike. Spinning at 4,800 revolutions per minute, no matter which blade you slip onto the collar of this compound, you'll cut through wood both hard and soft, leaving sharp edges and tight corners with every cut.

      The perfect way to save money on any job, the Craftsman 10' sliding compound miter saw uses smaller, easy-to-maintain blades than larger models, but this saw still delivers the reach to spin through boards up to 12 inches wide. Perfect for quick work, this saw features a Laser Trac that clearly lines up with your pencil marks for fast work and when you're looking to cut precision miters, the built-in clamping system gives you that exact angle every time. The Craftsman 10" compound miter saw delivers precision and versatility that you can count on.

      • The Craftsman 10' sliding compound miter saw features a 15.0 Amp motor that delivers high torque and speed
      • Include compound miter saw, blade, dust bag, blade wrench, clamp and extensions
      • Studs, joists and posts cut easily with the dual slide bearing rail system
      • Telescoping aluminum extensions with stop block provide additional support for longer work pieces
      • Laser Trac not only gives you an accurate cut line, but doesn't ever run out of batteries
      • The 0-50 degree miter adjustment includes common positive stops for accurate cuts on the fly
      • 60 carbide teeth give the 10-inch saw blade more life and bite than others
      • Aluminum construction is durable and easy to move from home to jobsite
      • Some assembly required
      • Comes with Owner's Manual (English)

      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.

      Craftsman's Slipping
      I purchased this saw after killing a cheap model on home restoration. Directly out of the box the angles were right on, upon attempting to make a cut one of the guard screws fell out obviosly stripped due to poor design. The problem with the dust collection is also a design flaw I taped a small piece of cardboard to the rear of the blade housing and noticed a huge increase in the sawdust actually making it in the bag. I grew up on craftsman tools but as cheap labor moves in on every aspect of life i'm afraid quality isn't what it used to be.

      Possible Defect - needed to exchange it after 4 cuts.

      Needed a new saw and after seeing the above average reviews opted on 21237. I got 4 cuts into a small project and the trigger system stopped responding - it was in constant on mode which isnt safe. I unplugged it and secured it in the down position and read up on the manual to make sure there wasn't an odd feature I was missing. After a cover to cover read through and not seeing anything I tried again. Upon plugging it in it was auto on and I tried for a solid 10 seconds of wiggling both the trigger and safety thumb mechanism and still it wouldn't turn off. Tried again for another 10 seconds and this time it turned off. I fiddled with the triggers and although turned off and then it responded as needed I didnt like the possibility of it happening again so I took it back for an exchange.Hopefully it was just that saw and the new one doesnt have this issue - plus side is 8 cuts into the project with the new saw and so far so good. On a more positive note the cuts that I have been able to make have been flawless. The 45s are spot on and the framing project is looking great! Oh, one more con - the dust bag/ system is useless. I think I have a spec or two of dust in the bag while the rest is all around my work bench.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      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.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      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.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      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

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      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 would recommend this product to a friend.

      ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS MONSTER

      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.
