I don’t cut crown molding or much of anything with my miter saw except picture frames. I also have to use a crutch to walk, so any tool I can carry with one hand is attractive to me. I do most of my cutting outside, so this “little” miter saw, that can be easily carried with one hand, is great!
I sold my 10” miter saw because it was so hard for me to carry that I just got tired of using it. This Craftsman only weighs about 16 pounds and has a carrying handle under the dust extraction chute. This one fits my needs much better. It cuts cleanly with the stock 40-tooth blade, and with 7 1/4” being a common size, finding replacement blades will be easy.
UI don’t usually buy Craftsman power tools, as their quality has been compromised, the last few years. But ai got this miter saw for only $49, on sale, so it won’t hurt too bad if it goes south, which i expect it to do right around 13 months of ownership! LOL
All-in-all, I am pleased with this tool. It is a good deal on sale!
