I need a new miter saw,does anyone know anything about the craftsman 21221 12”dual bevel sliding saw? Looks like a jet brand saw renamed.

Just don’t.
Anything but Crapsman.
I have DeWalt. There are lots of good stuff said about Bosch and Makita.
Do ya really need a 12” slider? 10” inchers can do a LOT of stuff, and blades are a bunch less expensive.
Just my opinion.

Cant Really say, I have a craftsman now and only had one problem the metal fence was slightly curved when I got it, didn’t notice the first few test cuts until I tried a glue up. Took the fence off put in a vice and whacked it a few times with a ribber mallet. Its been good since. A lot of power, good braking, has a laser sight which when I left it on the batteries died and haven’t replaced it yet, its only been 4 years, what?!? Ive been busy :-)

I am trying to kill it so I can by the Bosch with the robotic looking arm, wife says if something goes out, that can come in, I suggested some of her stuff and she sent me to the workshop after calling me an idiot, If that’s not true love I don’t know what is.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

Have your say...
