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...

Big improvement ends being PURE GARBAGE!!!

Big improvement ends being PURE GARBAGE!!!

I’ve purchased this saw ‘cause I owned the past model. It was supposed to be a big improvement. Surprise!!!, the main table was broken at the back, right where the Allen screw holds the saw’s main axle!!!. I’ve sent it to the service center and they kindly replaced the table at no cost…’cause the saw was under warranty still. I’ve seen the saw had a problem. It wouldn’t stay vertical, I mean it wasn’t cross cutting vertical, there was at l...

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, ...

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.

Craftsman MiterMate Saw...Oops, I goofed again.

Craftsman MiterMate Saw...Oops, I goofed again.

Update to this review at the bottom labeled “UPDATE” Yet another $225 mistake, and the reason I KNOW when I buy something without thinking about it for about a month that I’ll probably goof. I just do a little work around my house, but my loving wife lets me buy nice tools. We figure the cost of a tool is less than hiring someone to do the work. I’d been looking at miter saws for a while; I have two radial arm saws in the shop, but it’s a pain to run back a...

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...

The new Bosch GCM12SD Miter Saw with articulating nuckles and no rails

The new Bosch GCM12SD Miter Saw with articulating nuckles and no rails

I was at the New England Woodworking Show last week not really looking for anything in particular when I happened on the new Bosch Miter Saw. I had looked at the Festool… too expensive and I hate that your blades are limited by the size of the arbor & that Festool wants you to buy their blades. I started really looking at the Bosch and the price was so good ($694 show price) that I ended up ordering one the next day. It came on Wednesday but I didn’t have time to do anythin...

Performax Sliding Miter Saw

This Christmas, my wife bought me a PreformaX 10” sliding miter saw from Menards 164.99$. I was surprised to find out that they are part of the same company that makes Jet and Wilton tools. The box was huge, and everything was well packed. Set-up and adjustments were very easy. The manual was not the greatest though. The laser was “factory set” not sure in what factory that was perhaps by Mister Magoo without his glasses on. It was off by at least a 3/8 of an inch. Adjusting was simple and th...

Santa brought a New Bosch GCM12sd miter saw

Santa brought a New Bosch GCM12sd miter saw

My old Delta chopsaw has served me well for a number of years, but many recent projects hungered for a better way to cut compoundangles with a larger crosscutting capacity. Santa brought a new saw for me this Christmas. Its a Bosch GCM12sd, which is one very large saw, compared to the Delta chopsaw.This thing is amazing. The slide mechanism is a bit of engineering marvel if you ask me.The “articulating” arm, as they call it, moves effortlessly across the bed of the sawwith a o...
