Craftsman 12" Sliding Miter

This miter saw has been very good purchase, I made some compromises in order to have a sliding compound miter sooner rather than later. I choose this one because of price $230.00 (I think the regular price is like $330.00), and durability. When I looked at the display model, it was firm and square. The saw has all the power I need, and most of the time I’m using it for cross cuts, and simple 45’s and 22.5’s . Out of the box everything was squared up, I had to make a slight...

Excellent accuracy for such a cheap saw. Not such a great blade.

The Black and Decker Firestorm line was a Lowes specific line of tools that was discontinued at the end of 2008. With some of the product offerings pulling them from the market was a good thing to do (I will post a review of the router later), but with some of their offerings, hobbyist woodworkers, and home improvement DIY’ers got left out in the cold. I purchased my FS1000L on sale in January of 2008, and it has seen extensive use since the purchase. The stand (not included, separat...

None slider 5 star

None slider 5 star

After a few disasters with sub $200 sliders and a dual rail miter sled, I decided to grab one of these none sliders. And @ $120, this made it impossible to resist for too long.I blew the sales they had on Amazon and also the sales they had on-line at sears but got lucky in store deal. So I grabbed it. Any way, right out of box the accuracy was an impressive within 0.1 in all aspects.Not bad at all but not good enough for a calibration fanatic like myself. So after an hour or so of tweaks, ...

Great saw with a few annoyances

Great saw with a few annoyances

12-06-2009 12:37 AM by Webb | 13 comments »

I have had this saw for about two years now and use it regularly. I have not yet bothered making a sled for the tablesaw since I tend to use this for anything narrower than about 14”. Note you can cut boards as wide as 16” but it requires messing about with the fence which I have not bothered to do. The saw does eat up a lot of space; you need a lot of clearance on the sides plus it needs a substantial clearance behind the saw. The price for the capacity I guess. I have not per...

One Sweet Saw

One Sweet Saw

Cuts very clean. The 90 degree stops were perfectly square right out of the box so no adjustment needed. With a dust collector attached it’s got excellent dust control. It glides so smooth you can just about operate it with a couple fingers. My only gripe is that it did not come with a laser guide. Even my $90 Makita P.O.S. came with one. For an $800 saw to not have one is mind boggling. I was so annoyed by that I almost gave it 4 stars.

I got this saw about 3weeks ago, and let me just say i love this thing!!! it’s definitely a manly saw. first off it has a TON of power i just cut a 3×3 blank of hard maple no problem what so ever, and I’ve been using the blade that came with it (12’‘x1 60 tooth) to my surprise the blade is actually a decent one. I really like the slider action on it it’s nice and solid. The miter stops and scale are dead on, as for the bevels they needed a “little tuni...

Lightweight saw  cuts with power and precision

Lightweight saw cuts with power and precision

I don’t like the big 10 and 12” Slide compound saws. They aretoo heavy to easily move around. I’m a relatively young man andI am strong, but still I don’t like lifting much more than 40 lbs. if I’m installing trim. I bought this saw because I was doing a job where I had to miter9” wide crown moulding and my older 12” miter saw (not a slider)wasn’t able to do it, even on the flat. The larger a blade on one of these sliding saws, the more ...

We had someone steel the new 10” makita slider and the old turd of a dewalt slider from the jobsite last week. we are trimming out a hotel and have to have the tools on sight so the boss picked up a new dewalt at the BORG. I am a fan of the dewalt. I have used this saw 12 hours a day for the last 5 days and it has probably cut a few miles of trim between the two shifts. it was dead nuts right out of the box. it has performed so well that I told him to pick up another one on his way...

Fantastic saw for rough or finish work

Fantastic saw for rough or finish work

02-03-2010 06:15 AM by wannabe | 13 comments »

Hi all, Since I’ve read so much good advice, I thought I’d contribute a little myself. I’ve had the C10FSH for a couple of years now and have to say it is hands down a fantastic saw. It’s a dual bevel 10 inch slider that I bought so I could cut some boards to lay under a shed. I’ve also used it for some fine trim work and hope to use it for some furniture building. It is dead-on accurate and doesn’t need to be readjusted unless you change the blade. ...
