I have this exact same laser on my Craftsman CMS that I purchased over two years ago. This is not new technology. The laser line is not the cut line and is not intended to be. The more you use it the more familiar you'll become with it. It doesn't take very long before you instincttively know where the cut line will be in relation to the laser line. Someone correct me if I'm mistaken but I don't think any current laser equiped saws use the laser line as the cut line.
