This Task Force 10” miter saw helped me get into woodworking.  Simple to operate and reasonably priced at around $90, this workhorse has graced every wood project in the Toolmonger shop with accurate mitered cuts — it’s great for anyone setting up a shop.

Just un-box the unit, bolt it to a solid surface, and add wood.  The notched angle guide attached to the pivot knob is easy to adjust, and you don’t have to sand or alter the cuts to make your joints fit together even and true.  It also doubles as a small chop saw for straight-cut trim and boards that’ll fit in the saw –- and some that won’t.

It’s not the best saw out there, and it might not last as long as some of the better-put-together units — but for the last two years this tool has seen daily use, and it’s never given any operator the slightest hint of a problem.

We’ll most likely wind up with a more robust saw in the shop, but we can’t bring ourselves to exchange the Task Force for a fancier rig with sliding and compound capability, because it still works for what we need it to do — and we can’t imagine doing without it.

    Welp since Task force isn’t a Lowes item anymore you’re going to back to the manufactuer. Somewhere on the saw or in the manual is a number to the folks who made it start there and go to their customer support area and see where they send you. Several compaines made this saw so it’s just a matter of tracking it down that way. It will either be super easy or a nightmare. I wish you the best my friend.

    This thing is a piece of s***, I do not know where the poster or you guys are using the thing, but i have never been even remotely satisfied with it. It takes two hours just to fine tune a miter cut since as you turn the tightening knob, the whole saw moves, or the fact that the back fence parts don’t even line up. Piece of s***

    I bought a replacement fence for my Task Force 10″ compound miter saw about 8 years ago, but I wasn’t able to install it. I needed a special tool or superman strength to attach the spring which I wasn’t able to do. I have most of the parts of this great saw. This was my favorite saw until my teenage son used it as a step stool and broke the fence on it. I’m trying to locate a manual, so I can list and sell off the parts. I hope I can help some of you out there.

      i need the lower [plastic] blade guard.
      i also have the manual. i can send u a copy of the parts & parts list, if that would help.

      • Michael Wiseman says:

        I know this is old but if you could send me a parts list and manual too I would be grateful.

  13. I am trying to change the blade on my TAsk Force 10 inch compound miter saw Model M2500W. When I use the blade wrench that came with the unit, I cannot get enough space between the blade nut and the side of the frame to completely loosen the nut and remove the blade. Please advise.

  14. I am stupid. I found the metal blade guard screw that loosens the blade guard and was able to expose the screw that holds the blade on. No need to answer my inquiry.
    My apology to all who read my inquiry.
