Comment:I bought this to replace my older DeWalt 12inch double bevel saw with a broken base. It has been working well for me. It has better support for the electrical cord, as well as nice light. It feels much smoother when I rotate it. I have not tried all the features, yet. It is a joy to use.

Comment:I purchased the saw about 18 months ago. It built a new shop and mans cave. The quality and performance was better than I was hoping for. I had an older radial arm saw for over 30 years and this machine fully replaced all of this machine and more. I build furniture on the side, and the cut quality with the Freud blade has been terific, with cut precision using the LED guide is fantastic. Angles are perfect right from the box. I highly recommend this saw for all levels of carpentry.

Best saw i ever owned
Comment:I purchased this saw about a year ago. Used it on so many jobs one of the best saws I have ever used well worth the money. The quality is second to none. It has held up to just about anything I can throw at it. Ive used it for cutting molding to flooring and trim work. Great right out of the box never had to make any adjustments. I am still using this saw and am happy with the purchase. I have used a lot of saws in the past this is by far the best. The blade stops for safety as soon s you let off the trigger. The blade was squre right out of the box. Has so many adjustments for just about any job. This is probably one of the most important tools a contractor could have.

Cuts like butter...
Comment:I have been asked "where do you get this"? All my neighbors want to borrow my saw and I told them they can get their own from DeWalt Factory Authorized store at a great price. Home Depot almost got my money, but I am glad I found this on-line...thanks DeWalt!!!!
