I just pulled trigger on this craftsman 10", 15 amp, compound miter saw.

Price was $100.66 (but there's a $10 off $100 coupon for sears members); and there's a promo where you get $10 in points for every $30 spent. Out the door i paid $97 (I had like $2 in SYW points) after tax, and should be getting $30 in points for future purposes.

Reviews are decent for a basic saw.

Here's a youtube vid i found of the unboxing (not really that much info)

Also check your Sears Outlet store... many years ago while looking for deals/discounts on this item and the Hitachi@Lowes...I found this for $35..... there were many...probably overstock at that time.

Any input on this miter as a starting point? I'm hoping to eventually get into some more serious diy woodworking. Would this be a good miter to start on, or should I start with something a little nicer?

I have the same question. Is this good for cutting moulding and trim?

This is a pretty great saw to start with. It's cuts up to 4x4's and 2x6's so unless you want to cut bigger boards than that you should be fine

My craftsman miter actually would only go about 98% through a 4x4. Drove me nuts. This was a model from about 10 years ago though. My Ryobi 10" slider, while still a homeowner grade tool is much nicer. I paid $149 for it. It's bulkier and heavier, but I have it on a stand.

I'm in- seems like a decent saw with a laser guide for the price. I'll only use it for DIY smaller jobs + I had 30 SYW $ so total was $75 + 20$ future SYW shipped to me. Can't beat that - thanks op.

I've been using a similar Craftsman for the past few years, and can't justify upgrading. The biggest downsides (which may have been rectified): the laser guide isn't accurate enough for use, and the dust collection is poor even with a shop vac--and even with a shop vac, you'll need to jerry rig it a bit. But the stock blade isn't bad, fence is fine, and though the stops aren't super useful, with an angle gauge or sliding bevel I have no issues making consistent/accurate cuts.

This looks identical to the saw I own. I've had it for about 6 years and it has served me well with moderate use. I've built a 50 ft fence, a swing set, large ramp for my shed. I'm 90% done with framing a 1200 ft basement area and it's working pretty well still.

Cons:
Only cuts 98% of a 4x4 and 2x6, I flip it over to finish the cut but it's never perfect.
My laser never worked
Recently the adjustment handle that tilts the saw broke (plastic part), can still be adjusted but need to use pliers. This has led to my saw moving slightly out of vertical while cutting which can be quite annoying.

All in all, I think it is a great beginning saw, but my next one will be a sliding miter.

I paid $100 during a BF sale probably 6 years ago.

I've had the craftsman miter saw, I gave it away. The locking knob would adjust the angle of cut when tightened and the stops were not accurate. I picked up the entry level 12" DeWalt for 215 from Lowe's and have been much happier. I know it's twice as much but the accuracy and ease of use I found to be worth it.

Thanks for all the comments. As long as this saw works, I think it will be a good machine to learn on with some basic wood furniture builds. After all reward points used from this deal, the saw cost me $65. If i get several years use out of it (and make some nice outdoor benches), i'll be happy.

I ended up using my $30 rewards on this Worx battery trimmer.

there was also some $10 surprise awards, so after my $40 in rewards, this came out to $25 plus tax. I was worried sears would go out of business before I got to use my points. Problem solved.
