Ryobi 7-1/4″ Sliding Miter Saw TSS701 – 10 Amp Corded Model

Ryobi has a new corded 7-1/4 inch sliding miter saw model TSS701. The small 7-1/4″ blade keeps the entire saw small and light while the rails allow it to slide for longer cuts up to 10 inch wide boards.

What’s interesting about this new model is that it has modern features such as an electric brake to stop the blade rapidly after each cut. They’ve ditched the old laser system and now has an LED light that casts a shadow where the blade will cut. This is leaps and bounds better than lasers because you never need to calibrate it and it always shows the thickness of the blade as well, something lasers could never do.

Using a small 7-1/4″ blade for portability and weight savings, the downside is a very small fence and vertical cut capacity of 3.375 inches. This saw still uses the old twist knob to lock miter angles in place and is only a single bevel saw. You can still bevel both sides of material even though single bevel but you’ll have to flip boards over to get the other bevel cut.

This saw is available now from HD with a list price of $129. Big thanks to Cody Robertson for spotting this!
