Interested where a decent 10" mitre saw can be had for $200? Most of the decent brands seem more expensive for the 10".
I got a Ryobi 10 sliding plus the stand for $199. I'd call that decent, good enough for the weekend emperor.

Ryobi is Mastercraft level, not the same class as Bosch/Dewalt. Staying in the same brand the saving is minimum dropping from 12" to 10".

Why is the DWS717 so expensive for a 10" Slide Saw?

Not familiar with Dewalt product, but I googled DW717 and amazon price seems to be regular for a 10" slider.

i only use mitre saw to cut trim pieces. For any bigger board, I use table saw which gives more consistent and cleaner cut. I have a 12inch bosch glide mitre saw, and most of the time it's collecting saw dust.
Unless you only do crown molding, otherwise spend the premium on a good table saw instead.

Patience....plus not right to compare current sale price of a 12 inch saw against current everyday regular price of a 10 inch saw. At a minimum, there are some no tax sales to be had.

If budget is an issue, look for very lightly used on Kijiji or Craigslist. There are lots of people out there who buy a saw for one job and then sell it off as it's cheaper vs renting and they really don't want to keep a saw.

I believe a saw is a saw....once it's setup and calibrated, it cuts the same. Invest your money on more tools and better blades.

For example, I'd love to have in my workshop a full size table saw, a drill press, a band saw, a planer, a regular and a small router, a jig saw, dado blades for table saw, hammer drills, Kreg pocket jigs, etc....there's no end to what you can buy, the only limitation is space and desire to do stuff and a BUDGET.

Consider what it is you want the tool for and then decide if the cost is warranted. If there is only one piece of wood that requires a 12 inch slider, buy a 10inch non-slider and then cut one way and flip it over and cut the other way or use a table saw. Done!

I concur with others here on the impracticality of a 12" mitre saw. They weigh a crazy amount, and the sliders are the heaviest of the bunch.
My 12" Dewalt sits on my bench collecting dust, and the stand is tucked away.
I need portability, and it's just not practical for me to lug to a job to make a dozen cuts in 4 inch MDF baseboard. I ended up buying a Kobalt 7-1/4" slider on sale at Lowes of $99.
The Dewalt is a fantastic saw, and makes lovely precision cuts with the correct blade. If I was doing only finish carpentry, I'd be using it for sure.

(My wife likes to use the Dewalt to chop up 2x4's for her various 'projects', using the 80 tooth finish blade, which makes me crazy.)

Home Depot.

Price matched Lowes sale with 10% additional discount.

Actually it was $560.
Does the stand come with the 717? After reading this thread I think I may not get a 12 inch and get a 10 inch instead.

A 12" is useless since as mentioned It's very heavy and you can't share blades with a table.

Never seen the DW717 paired with a table.

I'm leaning more toward a 10 inch as well but there is a Milwaukee on sale at home depot but a 12 inch which is 397 on sale which is tempting...
