Craftsman 21217

Highlight: Projects laser line where the blade will cut.

My two cents: "Very accurate, with no adjustment required, but would perform better with a good blade."

Tool stats: 46 pounds, 4,200 rpm, single bevel, 28-tooth carbide-tipped blade, one-year warranty, 60 dB, laser. Miter/bevel range: 48 degrees left and right/45 degrees left. Cross-cut capacity at 90 degrees: 7¼ inches. Maximum stock height: 4 inches.

Price: about $250; Craftsman
