The best saw in our review of sliding compound miter saws from five manufacturers has many features that make it exceptionally easy and enjoyable to use. The adjustable, four position grip is ideal for either hand; up-front controls make this saw the most convenient for permanent mounting; and the large workpiece clamp operates like a bench holdfast and is the easiest to position. In addition to its miter-detent override, the saw features a microadjustment knob for fine tuning a cut 2° on either side of a detent. That’s good, because the miter scale and its chubby pointer aren’t all that precise (though the detents are). The laser cutting guide aligns with only the left edge of the blade and is too blurry for accurate work.
