Jet miter saw
I am making some candle stick holders and had to cut several pieces of 3" x 3" into usable sizes. This saw worked very well.

Excellent tool.
I have several Jet power tools so I was anxious when they entered the sliding miter saw market. It is everything I hoped it would be. Very accurate right out of the box and surprisingly quiet for such a powerful tool. Definitely would recommend to anyone in the market for a 12” sliding miter saw.
Newest tool in my shop is amazing.

Work of Art = Looks well made.
My second Miter Saw, Packed in solid foam appears in good condition, weighs 65lbs. in a big box, hard to handle, must have got bumped a bit. I read the Instruction manual. (It said about the slide nut.)
It moved around in the box a little, the slide nut needed to be tightened to keep it from moving, I picked it up by the back & front handle, and bolted it to the table. I have not yet turned it on, will comment later on performance. Ed C.

great upgrade
I had an old Delta for years, so this is a huge step up. It cut 2" stock without fade. I need to work on adjusting the lazer, but I like the power and depth.

Solid machine. Work light and laser disappoint.
I had the previous version of this saw, which suffered in the areas of miter and bevel lock. This edition is better at both and seems to have addressed a few of the other little shortcomings of its predecessor. It's got plenty of power and does the things you expect out of a saw like this.

Two things I don't like:
1. You can't adjust the laser yourself.
2. The work light is blocked by the blade -- and it's the opposite side as the laser -- the off-cut side. If you mean to check your cut by touching the (stopped) blade down to your line, as soon as you do, the work light no longer shines on your line! You do get the laser, but it's not dead-on and it's not enough to illuminate your work to see a fine mark anyway.

If you're after an exact cut, bring your own light. That was true before the saw had a light -- but it's disappointing here that there *is* a light but it's not as useful as it could be.

This saw works as designed. Before using it I checked the alignment of the blade and it was relatively good right out of the box. Very little adjustment was needed, so I was stoked on that. The material clamp is useful as well as the laser. My only gripes about this saw are the angle increments, it would be helpful to know where you are in relation to 90 degrees. My other complaint is the dust collection. It requires a good amount of hose, and if you are relying on the supplied bag it tends to empty itself when you lock the blade down. Other than those 2 things which are easy to overcome or work around this saw is awesome. I'm glad I made the purchase.

Great saw, bought at a great price!
Bought this on a whim due to the crazy holiday sale price. Figured, it's made by JET gotta be decent.... Hasn't let me down yet. Been using it steady since I got it. Great saw. Quiet, to me. Smooth. Easy to carry for me. I will soon be making a bench specifically for this miter saw, but right now it's pretty much mobile. All in all, very impressed thus far. Packaging could have been a little better. I blame it on the handlers but it's got tossed around pretty good by the looks of the styrofoam when I opened the box. No serious damage to the saw.

Does it have a “soft start”?

BEST ANSWER: No, it's an AC motor so it's all or nothing.
