Good inexpensive 10" miter saw for a DIY'ER??/


Hello again everyone,

Well tonight i broke down and decided to by a inexpensive Craftsman Compound Miter Saw. I went to Sears looking for the 10" saw that was on sale for $99.99, of course they were out, but the salesman sold me a 10" saw with a laser and a stand for $20.00 off the sale price. In all this saw setup came to $122.99. I haven't used it yet, i just got it together and did the adjustment's ( didn't need any ) but had to check. What do you guy's think of this saw for someone that isn't going to use it everyday? Oh ya, one more thing, which blade should i buy for this unit? I would like to do some ( Very Little ) Oak trim, but mostly pine.

One thing I'm not is hard on my equipment. I'm anal about keeping my tools cleaned and in as good as shape as they can be. Like i said, this will probably NOT get used alot, but it is alot better then my dad's old hand miter box.

I bought the WorkForce coumpound mitersaw and I am quite happy with it. Under $100 at HD. I, too, don't use it lots but is much easier than a handbox type. Watch the laser. I have heard lots of bad things about how they can be become misaligned when you most need a good cut. Happy woodworking.

This crapsman has a little adjustment to the laser, but i didn't buy it because of the laser. I don't trust a laser in this environment.
