This is a decent saw. I ordered some stuff and they sent me one by mistake (instead of socks). I called them but they never sent UPS to pick it up even after they promised to "do the needful" (???)

So after it sat on my porch for 60 days I brought it in. The laser trac is a nice feature.

laugh out loud

Nicely played.

I ordered one of these to cut some door trim while remodeling my house. Looked pretty good, but when it arrived, I could not figure it out at all. No way this thing would make the cuts I needed. Other delays crept into the picture and meant it was beyond the return period, so it was useless to me. But then I realized I could put it on my feet to keep my feet warm. Even fit inside my shoes. Not bad.

DeWalt's older model is a tad bit heavier than their latest and it has a lazer instead of light - otherwise it's a spitting image, significantly better than this one in every way, double bezel, 12" blade!, fence is far superior, huge cutting capacity - way way better for $93 more when it goes on sale. It was last on sale at Home Depot a couple weeks ago for $300! It's also a proven saw in the construction industry as a favorite, it's way way worth the extra money compared to this. You're talking about one of the best miter saws there is for $93 more vs this. Coming from someone that had this on their radar, the more I think about it the more I'm driven away from this Craftsman. At $160 without any gimmicky cash back sales, I'd bite.

But if you're on an absolute budget, this Craftsman might be a bit better than the Ryobi and I think as long as it stays true to 45's and 90's, you should be fine with it. But then again I'd probably get a Ryobi at that point and save even more money.

FYI, those points..

Spend $150+ sitewide, get $150 CASHBACK in points in 10 weekly installments. Scam-tastic. Instead of a straightup sale, it's a little game they like to play - have fun.

If you don't know how installments work, you better look it up first, it's not pretty. I'm sure someone here will sell it to you, but most slickdealers I've seen that've been stuck with these crazy installments end up regretting it. You're not getting $150 to spend all at once, even if you wait the 10 weeks because the first one would have expired by then and likely the second and third.

That means you must make another 10 purchases from them in a row in the next 10 coming weeks, you lose if you miss. Very bad arrangement.

Not an evaluation of this tool but of Sears. I purchased a large air compressor only to have it fail within the 1 year warranty (luckily). Sears Parts Direct stocks few parts (none of the major parts) for this compressor. Had I realized that earlier, I would have purchased elsewhere. As it is, my compressor will be replaced with a new one under the mfg warranty, but I can expect little, if any, downstream support. Suppliers do not supply if unpaid. Be warned.

When looking at deals that involve store credit, I strongly advise that you make a determination as to how much you value each one of their store dollars.

So taking into account that you have to go through finding something to buy every week for $15 that will almost certainly be over priced as well as having to deal with the risk of potentially not being able to use all your credit before Sears goes kaput, you arrive at a valuation of perhaps 60 cents on the dollar.. That means you should look at it as spending about $115 on this miter saw which is not that slick of a deal.

To each their own. You may find ways to leverage the credit better than others.

The way to leverage the points that I've done is try and get successive deals running, sometimes they're separate ones on Kmart.com or Shopyourway.com. If you're still near a store the in store offer may also be independent. I got 3 going at once to get $45 back a week. I'm still near both a Sears and Kmart, but I ship mostly everything they don't have from the website to Sears for pickup then just pick up a few orders at once. This eliminates the shipping costs from redeeming the points.
