Cathy,

i have the dewalt 10” slider and my dad has the 12”. i know both of us could not be happier with our choice. I do not need the capacity that the 12” offers, so i saved a few bucks and went with the 10” version. It has done everything on the job and in the shop that i could ask of it. i have a cheaper diablo blade that i use for general cutting, and a freud industrial 80 tooth that i use for fine trim. it will cut perfect miters and i have never touched the saw as far as adjustment goes. Brand new out of the box it makes beautiful cuts. The only that was a bit lacking was the hold down clamp. the one that comes with it will work fine, but is a bit clumsy to use. I purchased the dewalt “quick release” style as a replacement and is much easier to use.

sounds like you may be leaning towards the dewalt. you will not be disappointed if you stick with that decision.
