It appears northern tool has a relatively new 10in sliding miter saw. The design looks interesting and it is priced higher then some of the other junk they sell. Anyone have any experience with ironton stuff? I am interested in all the new “zero rear clearance” miter saw designs coming out.

Looks like their store brand, akin to their Klutch line.

It appears a bit heavier duty then their klutch line. The klutch saws were pretty bare bones. This looks more in line with a craftsman or ridgid on appearance.

eljiggo,

Did you get the Ironton saw? I have been looking at it also and have not been able to find much on line that reviews them. I went to he store to look at them, but they were all in boxes so I did not have a chance to look at it.

Right hand only for cutting. Deal breaker. Why is it so hard for manufacturers to understand that sometimes either a) left handed people use tools or b) right handed people sometimes cut with their left hands.

Even in one of the pictures on their website they show a guy awkwardly crossing his hands over to hold a workpiece on the right side of the blade!

I actually did not. I found a hitachi on sale for 199.99 and jumped on it. Its rock solid, and I decided I did not need the slide. The 8in cut capacity is more then enough for my needs.
