Or you could go to a real tool store and buy one. Even an online store if you don;t have any near you.
I personally would NEVER buy a $500 tool off Ebay, and HD is a last resort for me to buy tools.

Craftsman is made by none other than TTI aka the parent company of Ryobi, Ridgid, Milwaukee, AEG, etc.

Well truth be told... I was renovating and finally broke down and bought Sear's best biggest wet/dry vac. I was sooo fkn impressed this thing could suck the nuts off a deer in the next county and came with every attachment, could suck up sheetrock dust and not a speck recirculated into the room... I figured let me give their saw a shot. Plus it was Sunday.

I use my Dyson for the same thing around my house. It works etter than a shop vac. And it doesn't even have a filter to clean or replace. It's sweet. It doesn't recirculate any dust either.

Can it suck up chunks of wet spackle, sheetrock screws, leftover trim, and then unclog the toilet?

I feel sorry for your shop vac if you use it to unclog your toilet.

I don't need to suck up wet spackle with it. Just let it dry and it scrapes of easy. And I don't need it for the toilet either. Do you enjoy cleaning or replacing the filter? I'll bet you do.

Well I don't, but as you might imagine I can leave a pretty healthy load of s*^T if I do say so myself... .

However... it can be used to blow leaves or a driveway, the entire power blower. sucker motor is detachable...

I don't want to come off sounding like a Sears Craftsman endorsement but the thing really is the cat's meow.

I have the same saw and it is a good saw. Trim work in the house I use a 96 tooth blade. I'm old fashioned when it comes to wood work, I miter outside corners and cope inside corners. You get a nicer finish that way.

My father and grandfather were carpenters so I learned from them.

I am the same way. I cope all inside corners. However I just recently learned how to cope cut the corners. I used to miter them, and it is hard as hell to get them to look good especially for crown moulding.

Only way I was taught was coped corners.

Dude man, if you can get one from ebay for $500 + shipping, a brand new one is only a little more, I paid $589 for mine, as William 1978 says, Sears is always having 10% of sales and if you are a crafstman toolclub member you can some times get an extra 20%, just got to what for the sales.
Good Luck

check out the new Makita 10" dual slide miter saw. I checked it out at the depot and was surprised! it has the same cutting capacity as most 12" miter saws.

We have a couple of DeWalts here at our plant and they have been no trouble at all. Tools may be made by the same company, even on the same line but with different parts and spec's. This does not make them the same tool, with that said I like DeWalt(it an't no Black and Decker)
