A Craftsman 10' Sliding Compound Miter Saw Gets the Job Done Precisely Right

Smooth cutting with laser guided precision, lightweight, portable and slicing seamlessly through thick materials, the Craftsman 10' single bevel sliding compound miter saw is the perfect addition to a job site and home shop alike. Spinning at 4,800 revolutions per minute, no matter which blade you slip onto the collar of this compound, you'll cut through wood both hard and soft, leaving sharp edges and tight corners with every cut.

The perfect way to save money on any job, the Craftsman 10' sliding compound miter saw uses smaller, easy-to-maintain blades than larger models, but this saw still delivers the reach to spin through boards up to 12 inches wide. Perfect for quick work, this saw features a Laser Trac that clearly lines up with your pencil marks for fast work and when you're looking to cut precision miters, the built-in clamping system gives you that exact angle every time. The Craftsman 10" compound miter saw delivers precision and versatility that you can count on.
  • The Craftsman 10' sliding compound miter saw features a 15.0 Amp motor that delivers high torque and speed
  • Include compound miter saw, blade, dust bag, blade wrench, clamp and extensions
  • Studs, joists and posts cut easily with the dual slide bearing rail system
  • Telescoping aluminum extensions with stop block provide additional support for longer work pieces
  • Laser Trac not only gives you an accurate cut line, but doesn't ever run out of batteries
  • The 0-50 degree miter adjustment includes common positive stops for accurate cuts on the fly
  • 60 carbide teeth give the 10-inch saw blade more life and bite than others
  • Aluminum construction is durable and easy to move from home to jobsite
  • Some assembly required
  • Comes with Owner's Manual (English)

I have had this saw for a couple years now. I am basically a DIYer and have used it for everything from a shed, and fence to laminate and hard wood floors and it works well at least for me.

A couple things on this though.

The blade it comes with is junk, I replaced it with Freud D1080X Diablo 10-Inch 80-tooth ATB Finish Saw Blade, this thing really steps up the saws cuts to the next left. I would use the original blade for cutting 2x4's and other rough cuts that you don't care about tear out or rough cuts on.
The laser is as usual off when you first get it so make sure you adjust it properly.
Dust bag catches nothing and has a weird sized hole for attaching a dust collection system to. But not it is not unusual for Miter saws to blow all the dust straight back.
The right side mounting hole for the hold down clamp is not in the best position and is hard to use without getting hit by the saw motor.
The extension tables are short. I would suggest a miter saw stand for the longer extensions and being able to make repeated set cuts.
The fence was around 175 degrees not 180 straight and had to bend it into straightness, I could align one side 90 degree to the blade but the other side would then be 85 degrees to the blade.

If YOU take the time to get it setup and properly adjusted it is a great tool for the price.

I'm currently looking at the sliding 10" Ryobi saw from Home Depot for $179, anyone know how these two compare?

Any blade recommendations for this?

By the way, great saw for the average homeowner. Replaced a 12'' non-sliding Ryobi and would not go back.

Depends on what your cutting. this will give you an idea of teeth count

Diablo blades are amazing.

Bought a Harbor Freight (Chicago Electric) 10" sliding miter saw for $89 after coupon. I don't do any construction for a living but for an average home owner who does minor projects, it comes in handy and at a dirt cheap price. For the amount of times I would be using it, I can't see myself spending $170+ for it.

The more teeth on the blade, the smoother the cut. Seems like this one comes with the blade where as the one from HF does not (a few years back it did based on the videos on youtube). a 60 teeth blade was like $20 not including 20% off coupon.

Depends upon what you are cutting. Rough work can be done with a lower tooth count (@ 40) blade while finish cuts require a 60 tooth or higher blade. I like an 80 tooth blade for finish cuts (smooth as a babies bottom).

Freud makes excellent blades for every day use. If you just won the lotto, you could spring for a Forrest Blade. But it would be overkill on a Craftsman saw. Forrest Blades would find a home on better (Makita, Bosch, DeWalt, and even Hitachi) saws.

I bought the same Ryobi, but haven't unboxed it yet so I'm curious as well.
Currently waiting for a stand to go on slickdeal.

Just a note from experience. Watch your angles when tightening the knob on the front to lock the angle. The turning motion on mine caused it to walk a little and resulted in the angle being off. It's actually the one reason I gave the saw away and bought a more consistent model from a different manufacturer. For a DIYer, or weekend warrior it's a nice saw. I agree with the other posters, get a better saw blade. I've used Freud and Diablo (also made by Freud)on all my saws and I swear by them. They cut clean and fast and the 10" Diablo blades are very affordable.

I recently decided that its time to replace my ancient Dewalt miter saw, that still works well, with a compound saw. I'm leery of a 10" but I'm not really sure why. I think I'll pass on this one, given the comments...

I found the easiest solution to the dust collection port was to take an old vacuum extension tube and cut it down until it fit. That allowed me to permanently mount the cut down tube in the saw and then I could connect a 1 1/2 shopvac tube to the other side.
