TS1551DXL Compound-Miter Saw Review
This inexpensive compound-miter saw from Ryobi shines a laser line on the stock
This 12-in. compound-miter saw was the least-expensive saw we tested, but for cutting trim it needs a better blade than the 28-tooth carbide that is included. It has an arbor-mounted laser disk that replaces the blade washer. As soon as the blade starts spinning, a single laser line appears on the stock. The laser is helpful for getting stock close to position, but it is not accurate enough to eliminate lining up the kerf with your mark. And it is not adjustable.
