VERDICT

The Jet JMS-10SCMS 10-Inch Dual-Bevel Slide Compound Miter Saw is built with productivity, precision and durability in mind to suit the needs of woodwork professionals and hobbyists. Measuring 25.2 x 20.7 x 35.8 inches and weighing 50.7 pounds, this is a relatively portable saw. Set at an affordable budget, this high-performing machine is a must-have addition to your toolbox.

Robust Motor Supported by Poly V-Belt

The JMS-10SCMS is powered by a strong 15 Amp motor, which runs at a speed of 4800 RPM. The motor deflects power through a poly-v bet to maintain a consistent speed. The poly-v belt is also helpful in providing smooth cutting operations and minimizing the noise and vibration levels. At the same time, changing blades is super-easy thanks to the convenient push-button lock.

XACTA Laser Provides High Visibility
The XACTA Laser is exclusive to the Jet brand. This innovative, ultra bright green light is easily visible in the bright outdoors unlike the traditional red-laser light found in other miter saws. The light is strategically placed behind the blade and out of the way of your direct line of vision to provide clear and accurate cutting line alignment.

Powerful blade for tough materials

With an innovatively designed arm and a blade measuring 10’’ in diameter, this miter saw can impressively cut through thick materials at different bevel ranges. At an angle of 48O on the left bevel, the saw can cut material that is 3-5/8 inches in thickness and 8 inches width. At an angle of 45o on the left bevel, it has the cutting capacity of 1-5/8 inches in thickness and 12’’ in width while at an angle of 00 on both bevel and miter ranges, the JMS-10SCMS has the capacity to cut material that is 3-5/8 inches in thickness and up to 12’’ in width.

Aluminum Table Built With Precision

The JMS-10SCMS miter saw is built with an aluminum table that is designed to precision. The 21’’ base features a support surface that extends 13’’ from the blade. The table also comes with clamps that allow you to fix the saw to a workstation.

This miter saw features an arm at the back of the base that can be pulled out to keep the machine stable. The steel trim that surrounds the blade is designed in a way that it aligns with the sections of the table to the left and right sides. The trim that surrounds the blade comes with adjustable fasteners, allowing you to flexibly work with larger work pieces even in a small workspace.

Flexible Fence System

The fence system on the JMS-10SCMS miter saw allows the blade to function effectively at bevel and miter angles. The fence is placed on the base and can be adjusted to align with the base when necessary. It can also be adjusted in such a way that it holds the work piece on either side. The calibrations marked on the face of the fence allow for quick and precise setting of lengths.

Innovative handle and conveniently placed controls

Its D-shaped grip handle gives the JMS-10SCMS miter saw an ergonomic appeal, makes carrying and operating the machine comfortable and secure to use, allowing you to remain in charge of your cutting activities.

The bright orange control buttons are conveniently placed at the front, allowing you easy reach and also ensures safety during your cutting operations.

The JET JMS-10SCMS Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter is quite impressive for a 10’’ miter saw. Placed at a much lower cost range, you will find most of the same features in the large 12’’ sliding miter saws.
