    Comments about 12 in. Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

    I use the saw for trim, cabinetry, furniture, mostly in a shop environment. It is ironic that some commenters object to a few plastic parts AND object to the weight. If it were all metal, it would add another hundred dollars or so, more shipping cost and so many more pounds as not to be transportable at all.

    I built a table for it (2'-2" X 3'-2" removable top, such that saw's turntable surface is 3'-0" off the floor) with 8" diameter heavy duty casters to roll it outside or to put it out of the way. The large casters mean it can roll across turf or uneven ground.

    The fence-to-blade alignment was off about one degree out of the box. Fine Woodworking has a detailed description on how best to correct the horizontal and vertical alignment, the owner's manual is skimpy.

    Best Uses

      Comments about Milwaukee 12 in. Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

      I own a building material store and I build custom furniture as a hobby business. We have sold several miter saws over the years, and this is the only saw that customers come back in to tell us how much they love it! I have owned several dewalt models and they simply don't compare to the Milwaukee.

      Positives
      It came out of the box 100% accurate.
      Adjusting the bevel with the large paddle handle is easier on this saw than any other.
      It slides smoother than any other saw on the market.
      The soft start motor makes it easier to handle and reduces fatigue. It also lets you concentrate on holding the workpiece instead of ensuring the saw doesn't jump up out of your hand.
      The dust collector seems to pick up a larger percentage of the dust than other saws.

      Bad things:
      1 - The right side fence does not slide. Not the end of the world, but seriously...what were you thinking?
      2 - The blade guard is clear, but you really can't see through it to make accurate cuts. It's good enough when cutting framing, but skews your vision too much to cut trim. I have to pull the guard up, set my piece, drop the guard, then cut. It takes some getting used to but the positives far outweight the negatives.
      3 - If you turn the miter table too quickly, the digital read out gives you a number that is way out of whack. Returning it to 0 degrees or a preset stop seems to reset it.

        The two lights are not enough for good view sawing.

          Comments about 12 in. Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

          This saw works great. Compound cuts using both miter and bevel are clean.
          Indents at the different angles work cleanly and the slide motion is solid.
          Put a 100 tooth ultra fine kerf blade on this unit and don't even need to sand the cuts when I'm done.
          Love Milwaukee stuff, this saw is one of the reasons why.
