12" Dual Bevel Compound Miter Saw is Rugged, Yet Cuts with Precision
If you've got a beefy piece of moulding or a thick piece of lumber to cut, the Craftsman 12-inch dual bevel compound miter saw can chew through it with ease. The ball-bearing 15-amp, 3,800-rpm motor allows this saw to power through the toughest wood, including oak and maple. Slice wide 4 x 4 or 8-inch boards efficiently with the carbide tipped 12-inch blade. Never miss a cut with the Laser Trac system, which beams a line to show you where the blade will hit. Get the clean precise miter, bevel, crosscut or compound cuts you need for your project.
This 12-inch dual bevel compound miter saw also features a dual bevel function, which combines with the 45-degree miter angle capability to allow you to make multiple types of compound cuts with ease. The Quick Cam miter lock allows you to adjust the miter with ease. Sturdy steel supports attach to the base, and tall 4.5-inch sliding fences let you wrangle bigger pieces with ease. Keep your workspace clean using the 2.5-inch dustport, which comes with a dust bag. Or you can connect the port to your vacuum to suck up debris.

Had this saw for about a month now. So far I've used it to renovate 1 room in the house. I switched out the original blade for a Dewalt 80T Precision Trim blade. Used it to do baseboard, 1/4 round, chair rail, crown. No complaints on the cutting/miter/bevel performance. Miter stops were accurate when measured, as were the bevels. I would recommend the sacrificial piece of wood along the fence to bump your work out a little bit. I was getting minor tear-out until I added that. Dust bag catches maybe 30% of the dust, pretty useless. The blade on my saw is not perfectly centered over the slot, so when doing a bevel cut, it comes within a hair of hitting that plastic. Doesn't seem to be an issue, but freaked me out when I first set it up. The laser is semi accurate.... it is aligned to one side of the blade, so depending on which side you're measuring/cutting on, it will either work or not. I set this saw up on a Delta portable miter saw stand with very long extension arms and work stops. So I can't say much about the ones that came with the saw since I don't use them.

This is a terrible saw. I thought by buying a Craftsman, I was buying the best. Most of my tools are Craftsman. First of all, why would you put a battery powered laser on a electric saw. I used to have a Tool Shop the had an electric laser. The laser in not accurate. The board rests are floppy. Adjusting the miter accurately is almost impossible.The motor is very noisy. I'm very disappointed with this saw. I would like to return it but I'm sure it's too late.

I only had one small problem, The laser on & off switch has a bad contact must play with it to turn it on. Cuts very well. I mostly wanted to see if it cut a 4 x 4 fence post, excellent job. I bought this to make a long picture frame that were to costly or not what I wanted. May buy stand when I get more skilled with saw. O ya, Dust bag is useless. would be nice to have a vacuum system for my small work shop.
This tool does not perform at all. The motor stalls doing a 1x4 cut and especially working with 2x6 deck lumber. Having used the previous 12" Professional Craftman miter saw, this version needs to be replaced.
