Product Description

This new Craftsman 10” Compact Sliding CompoundMiter Saw, with its revolutionary space saving design combines performance and portability for all your cutting needs.  This saw uses 39% less space compared to standard sliding miter saws so you can work wherever you want, whether it be up against a wall or in tight work areas with limited space.

 

The powerful 15.0 Amp motor runs at 4,800 rpm allowing you to cut through a variety of building materials with ease.  The tool-free, adjustable Laser Trac™ system provides precision cutting guidance for accurate pre-alignment of cuts, and offset rails enable increased cut accuracy.  The saw can make bevel cuts up to 45◦ and miter cuts up to 50◦, and lets you lock in the five most common angle stops from the left or right.  Retractable, telescoping extension bars provide support for longer work pieces when needed.

  • Includes: compact sliding miter saw, hold-down clamp, blade, blade wrench, dust bag, extension tables, operator’s manual.
  • The Craftsman 10” Compact Sliding Compound Miter Saw’s 15.0 Amp motor delivers high torque and speed, perfect for hard and soft woods
  • Wall-hugging design can be used against a wall, requiring 39% less operating space than other standard sliding miter saws
  • Cross-cut boards up to 12 1/2-in wide at 90
  • Built-in retractable, telescoping aluminum extension wings with an adjustable stop plate for rapid repetitive cuts and support for long work pieces
  • Laser Trac™ provides an accurate pre-cut alignment of workpiece
  • The 0-50 degree miter adjustment includes common positive stops for accurate cuts and tight bevels on the fly
  • 60 tooth carbide tipped saw blade with standard 5/8" arbor

This is the one to get.
This miter saw is the best engineered miter saw i've seen. The dust collection is the best I've seen. It really gets most of the saw dust. If you connect a standard wet/dry vac (2 1/2 inch hose) to the port then it's getting probably better than 95 percent of the sawdust for me on all kinds of wood. The secret is to pull the saw all the way out, lower it and then make your cut by push the saw backwards on the board. All the dust goes up the huge chute. DO NOT come right down on the wood like a chop saw because if you do the sawdust will go all over the place like every other miter saw i've used. This thing really works well for dust collection. Second thing is that the laser is up front on the saw so it will not collect dust like all the other saw's I've seen with the laser in the back. There is no operator presence switch on this saw so it makes me think they were going to market it as a professional grade saw. The blade which comes on the saw is a very very good one. Very little to no tear out on any kind of wood I've cut. The rails system is clearly better design. For $229 they had to cut some corners and where they did is in the plastic. The miter adjuster is hard plastic (which is not uncommon). It would be my only real knock on the saw. It would have been nice to have a metal engagement for the miter detents. The motor is powerful and relatively quiet and it has an electric brake which stops the blade pretty fast. There is a place for everything on this saw including storage for the blade wrench and chord. Overall, this is an impressive saw for the money. I can only hope it stands the test of time. If it does then it's one of the better miter saws I've ever seen or used.

GREAT SAW BUT SOME DESIGN FLAWS
I purchase this saw thinking it was a space saving design as the salesman told me, however, because the slide comes out to the FRONT and not the back, it limits the height of the wood you can place against the fence, which is very unfortunate. The space saving design is not worth it if you can only cut a 6" tall piece of wood.

Excellent Saw For The Money!! Don't Be Misled By Other Posts

I am a contractor. I have been working with tools for 30 years. I have had several different brands of power tools both battery and 110v powered over the years. I have never written a review before, but am compelled to do so after purchasing this product. Lugging heavy/bulky tools around gets really old but is a necessary evil. This space saving design works great and gives me more room in the truck for other stuff. The best part is how easy it is to carry from the truck to the jobsite - through doorways, down hallways, etc. A standard sliding compound saw is bulky and awkward. This is a great saw for dragging around to onsite work. Not much reason to have this specifically in a shop unless space is really cramped. It's a 10" blade, not a 12", so take that into consideration if you typically cut thicker stock. I have only used it a few times, but it seems well built and perfect for my applications. I'm looking forward to many years of service with this money maker. Please beware of other posts that state this saw is a "bad design" as this criticism is not accurate and misrepresents the product in my opinion. I actually own this saw and the thickest piece of wood it will crosscut is 3.25". A regular miter saw can only typically crosscut around 3.5" making this only a 1/4" compromise for the space savings. I even got out my tape measure to verify these measurements on two different types of 10" saws. Keep in mind that if you're just doing a simple crosscut on a board, you can only go as deep as the motor housing around the blade allows. You are always restricted by the blade shaft, motor, safety guard and all components around it. It is not possible to make a 5" deep crosscut on a 12" wide board with a 10" blade or any 12" blade for that matter with a sliding compound mitre saw. Great price, great design - I love it!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Design far beyond price

I have been looking for a miter saw for some time and have been considering saws that cost several times as much. This meets all my expectations. The design with the fixed rails allows set up much closer to a wall or obstruction than conventional sliding miters. The dust collection with a vacuum attached to the hood is very good as long as the sliding function is used to cut into the wood from the front. It has a screw stop to limit depth for dado cuts. It does have some inexpensive parts that will require restraint in use. Out of the box, it was in perfect adjustment making square cuts in all dimensions. Craftsman really came through with this saw.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
