The best for what we do.
Comment:The Dewalt DW717 is super easy to adjust and use. Far easier to adjust and keep in alignment than some of the higher cost saws. You do need to be VERY careful to fully depress the thumb button when setting angles, else the hard-steel stop will drag on the soft-aluminum semi-circle that forms the braking surface. Forget to do this, and after a few years the aluminum will wear away to the point that you can't set any angle but the stopped ones, and you buy a new base. Not a big deal unless you ignore this warning. Ignore it, and you'll pay.

I wanted the best for less.
Comment:I have had this saw for for about 8 weeks. I spent month reading reviews on everything out there. I was stuck for a little while on the DeWalt 10" compound miter saw or the DeWalt 12" compound miter saw. I was able to put my hands on the DeWalt 12" saw and didn't like the feel of it. I bought the 10" saw because it appeared by the reviews to have a stable sliding action. It Does. Cut prefectly out of the box with the supplied blade. That is if you don't mind a rough saw cut. Put an 80 tooth blade on it and you get a saw cut slick as polished marble. Well maybe not quite that good. I also bought the LED light and it is far superior to any laser guides I ever worked with. The shipping container supports on the inside of the box was inadequate to hold the saw during shipping, but no damage done. Factory Authorized Outlet has done me right on two purchases and I would recommend them as a great supplier. I will be buying from them again. So far I don't think you can go wrong with DeWalt equipment.

Great price fro a very good saw
Comment:This review is more for the site. You either already know the quality of DeWalt tools or you can easily get that information. This site had the lowest price by far for this product when you factor in sales tax (e-tail and brick & motor) and/or delivery charges for e-tail. They beat out Home Depot (on line and instore), Amazon and one other site I can't remember. The tool arrived in very good condition and works great. There were no hassles with this seller.

Great Miter Saw
Comment:Came out of the box in great shape. So far I have used it without needing any adjustments. I installed the light kit and the shadow line is very useful.

Great Miter Saw
Comment:As always, DeWalt products have always been good to me. I only buy DeWalt, if they make the item I am looking for. I have never been disappointed in any of my DeWalt purchases. The Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw is a great product. Built well, like all of my DeWalt tools that I own.
