Great Sliding Compound Miter Saw for Woodworkers on a Budget

1420 days ago by PocketHole69 | 10 comments »

I’ve had an old Ryobi $99 Home Depot special miter saw for years and was looking to upgrade to a sliding model for wider cut capacity. I really wanted a laser too, because lasers are awesome. I did a lot of searching on Amazon and at the usual woodworking sites and pretty much resigned myself to spending $400-500 for a decent sliding compound miter saw from Milwaukee or Dewalt and started saving money. That was until I walked through the tool section at Lowes and noticed their ne...

Hitachi C12RSH Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw

Hitachi C12RSH Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw

I bought this saw last month after doing quite a bit of research and looking for the best bang for the buck. This saw had very good reviews on the internet and I spoke with a couple of contractors that had this saw and got good reviews from them also. If you are going to be using this saw on job sites you will need a portable stand for it, this thing is no light weight it weights in at 65 pounds. I checked the back fence, bevels and miter angles and this thing was set perfect from the f...

A neighbour down the street asked me to look at his mitre saw. He said it wasn’t cutting square in any direction. I tuned it up best as I could and figured, while I’m here, I could review it. 10 inch Craftsman Professional, at first, I was impressed. Craftsman engineers did a good job disguising cheap metal as a ‘professional saw’. The only reason I’m going to be so harsh on this saw is the fact they stick a big “PROFESSIONAL” logo on them. I’...

Last October 27/2007 I was induced to purchase the above mentioned CMS at a trade show .They Hitachi offered me a $100.00 rebate off the floor price to complete with Bosch and Dewalt who were, as I remember, breathing down their necks with pricing.It’s now March 3th 2008 and despite several e-mails and phone calls I am told to be patient another 2 weeks and they would give me my money back.The last time they said that it took three weeks before I eventually called again. Had they not...

So I just got this miter saw about a month ago and so far the only complaints I have had about it where that I needed to adjust the laser after I first got it. It cuts smoothly and accurately, it slides nicely and it makes cuts up to 13” wide. it’s already saved me lots of time, I hardly need to use my crosscut sled anymore for anything other than plywood and I just can’t say enough good things about this saw!

This saw is discontinued now, replaced by a new model but some stores around me still have a few left on their shelves. I picked mine up for about $360.00, that price for a Bosch slider is pretty good in my books. As with any other miter saw out there dust collection sucks but that is to be expected I guess. It came with a 60 tooth blade that worked great but after its life was up I replaced it with a Freud. The only real problem that this one has is that it is very hard to pull down when you...

For those of you crazy enough to go out yesterday for the “black Friday” overly rated shopping day, I still call you all crazy to subject yourself to that madness. I did have to venture out into that world as I needed some supplies from one of our home supply centers. In the store it was absolute craziness but I had to be there and I stumbled upon a sliding miter saw for a whopping $79.00. Never heard of the brand and a lot of the things i do are too big for my old 8 1/2”...

This review is for a saw that I’ve been using almost daily for a little over four years now. I purchased the DW718 after using the DW708 for over nine years. Out of the box I noticed that the base had grown a bit, but still had 110 degrees of miter settings and the same simple to adjust detent plate. I found this to be a plus after witnessing what some of my peers experienced while reclibrating some of the other manufactures mitersaws. From my experience the only time I’ve had an...

Klutch Compound Sliding Miter Saw with Laser Guide — 10in.

I already have had both a 12” Dewalt and a 7 1/4” Craftsman miter saw for many years. They have served their purpose well. But I wanted a 10” sliding for my personal shop. We all know you can put a crap blade on a good saw and get crap, but sometimes… sometimes you can put a good blade on a good saw and get great results. That’s what I have here. This saw is smooth operating, easily adjusts and dials in, is light weight, and has been powerful enough for eve...
