    Comments about 10 in. Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw with Laser:

    I pick and choose my tools after lots of research and Im very glad i went with this saw. I looked at all the utube videos i could find and took a leap of faith. Ill admit i am a little biased tward Makita and Milwaukee but i still do like the Dewalt, Bosch and some of the other large saw making companies. Matter of fact despite having mostly Makita and Milwaukee I was strongly considering the dewalt 12" miter saw (cant remember the model #) anyways i went with my gut and the fact that i really dont need a 12" saw and this 10" covers alot of ground and its in a smaller package. Short and long of it. The saw runs and operates like a dream.

      Comments about 10 in. Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw with Laser:

      Generally I'd say good design, but the left fence was out of adjustment and did not line up with the lower fence area. The design offers no way easy way to fix this problem - removing the upper fence and using shim stock the upper fence surface can be moved out to be co-planer with the lower fence area. Once that is done (you'll need a micrometer and/or a caliper) everything lined up fine.
      It would be nice if the laser line worked on both sides of the blade at the same time. If you have it setup for the left side and then unscrew a knob and move the laser to the right there's a strong possibility that when you move it back to the left the alignment will be off and you'll have to go to the manual to re-adjust.
      Even with a dust extractor / shop vacuum attached the dust collection is poor.
      My recommendation - if you want a dead-on accurate miter saw that's a joy to use, buy a Kapex if you can afford it.
      For the money I would recommend to a friend as long as he/she was willing to deal with the above.

        This saw is very nice for the price point. It has all kinds of features and it seems like they really thought it thru when designing it. The only thing that missing is, it didn't come with any outriggers. I have my own though. You can lock both slides individually. The double bevel is easily controlled. and the mitre lock is pretty handy as well.

          Comments about 10 in. Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw with Laser:

          Good overall and can do almost anything you need from a miter saw.

          Its a very versatile miter saw.

          It's "vise" is actually handy and not always in the way. It's one of the few ones I didn't want to just immediately throw away.

          It's trigger safety does its job without being super annoying and I like that it has the horizontal handle vs the vertical style.

          Lighter than its competition(dual bevel sliders under $500)

          Makes cuts some of its competition can't (60° miter to the right) however rare that would be used.

          Direct drive motor means less maintenance and better precision vs belt driven

          Has a depth stop that can be used for making simple dados like a radial arm saw (a lot of other brands don't bother with that)

          It actually comes with a pretty good 60 tooth blade

          A lot of well thought out features.

          Its dust collection even with a vacuum is just OK at best.

          Its laser is fine for giving you a general idea of where the blade is. I usually just leave the laser off because I find its more distracting than helpful.

          Overall I chose this saw over Dewalt, Bosch etc because its lighter, more precise, has more features and costs less while still giving me everything I need in a miter saw.

          Once I figured out how to calibrate the saw (instructions & diagrams not much help). It produced dead-on accurate and smooth cuts. A pleasure to use.
