Sliding miter saws offer the advantage of crosscutting boards up to 12 in. wide while still providing all the benefits of non-sliders. They're available with blade sizes ranging from 7-1/2 to 12 in. and cost $140 to more than $1,000. For this review to find the best miter saw, we chose to limit the field to 10-in. saws, but be aware that you may find 12-in. saws with similar features for just a little additional cost.
