I recently read a review in a magazine (forgot which one!) about a newer miter saw that had an innovative design so that it didn’t require the considerable rear clearance common to sliding saws. Does anyone else know what saw that might have been?

Was this the one you were thinking of https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-CM10GD-10-Inch-Bevel-15-Amp/dp/B00G5R4E9A/ref=sr12?ie=UTF8&qid=1468339918&sr=8-2&keywords=bosch+glide+miter+saw

Never used it but been eyeing it, currently above my budget.

Yes, that’s it, thanks. And yeah, that’s a lot of $$ for something I would use infrequently. I think I’ll stick with my TS sleds.

I bought the 12” version and love it. So smoooooooth and accurate. I got mine for $529. I just made some inserts for it too. There is a reason it’s expensive. Just like a lot of things, quality and innovation. This will probably last me the rest of my life.

There is a Craftsman miter saw that is a “walhugger” design that has 4.5 out of 5 review ratings. It is $230 with a free craftsman club membership. Might not be as accurate as the Bosch but if you need something for rough cuts it might be worth a look.

There’s also the Ironton, advertised right on this very page. $329.99, but was introduced at $279.99. I would like to see a review of one. I probably would have gotten it, had I not recently found a used Bosch Glide on CL for $350. And 10” has really been sufficient for me in my experience with other miter saws (Hitachi, for one).

That craftsman goes down to $169-$189 when they run sales and on Black friday.

10” is enough for me too, and I use my Bosch slider a lot. Having a stack of 10” blades is a convenience that outweighs the few benefits for me of a 12”.

I really want the Glider but its lack of outriggers is a deal breaker for me – I use them ALL the time. Why they omitted them from the 10” I can’t imagine.

Craftsman model number is SM2509RC.

I don’t get by here much any more, so I know you probably found it yourself by now, but posting this for others who might read the thread. Also, you can just go to sears.com, search for miter saw and it is listed as a compact sliding miter saw. Right now (July 22, 2016) it is the first one listed, and is on sale for $199.

I have the Bosch 12” glider and it works well for me. I put a DeWalt blade on it because the one that came with the Bosch cut poorly. I got this Bosch for $250 on creigs list. It had never been used nor fully assembled. I think a 10” would serve me just as well though.

I love that Bosch, but as everyone said it’s too expensive for most people. Master Force (Menards’ brand) has a small footprint sliding miter saw too. It uses two sets of sliders instead of one set (as commonly used). It has a depth stop, which is very nice, and is only $299.
