      Comments about 12-in Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

      I think the saw is put together and operates very well. The optional stand that is made for the saw is a must in my opinion. It makes it very user friendly for one person operation.

      Comments about 12-in Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

      I upgraded from a 10 inch Dewalt compound miter saw to this Dewalt dws780. My first impression when I pulled it out of the box is, it's a big saw. I was laying 5"x 3/4" hardwood flooring and this saw had no problem handling the task at hand. The LED light is dead on accurate. The blade had no problem cutting the flooring, I did notice a lot of saw dust on the floor and noticed two problems with that. First the dust collector bag that came with the saw was to big and would not stay on the saw, I had to use my old bag from my other saw to work. The second problem I had was that the dust collection tube seemed to clog up easily, I think what is was is I tried ripping some of the boards and the ripping dust was bigger than the dust collector tube was designed for, I tried the ripping on that saw cause I was to lazy to use my table saw, had to use it.

      All in all I own various Dewalt products, saws, drills, radio, miter saw stand, this saw will be a good addition.

      Great price on this saw. I have been looking for awhile at these saws. Looked bran new to be a recondition. I have used a 12" DE Walt miter for over 15 years with no issues and love it, never has let me down. I sold it to buy this one, had no problems finding a buyer.

        Comments about 12-in Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

        First use was a 10x14 gambrel shed/barn with a home-made window. Made cutting roof and window angles completely effortless. The free stand is almost as great and important as the saw--easy storage & setup, very sturdy, extendable arms on the ends make cutting long pieces a breeze. These two together are just outstanding- don't know anything they could have done better. The light that casts a shadow of the blade on the work is SUPER. I think this is better than the laser systems I've seen for precisely locating cuts. One of my best-ever tool buys with the stand thrown in.
