DeWalt DW717 10" (254mm) Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw
Where to Buy:
Works much better with a standBy: Anonymous
Overall Rating: 8.0/10
Review: If you are planning on using a 10\" slider much, make sure you have plans to set up with supports either on a bench or buy one of the good aftermarket saws out there. Without the adequate support you will compromise the potential of these saws. This Dewalt does everything well. I like its high vertical cutting capacity. Also there doesn't feel like there is any slop in the slides which is definitely something to watch out for. One thing that is annoying is the difficulty to finely adjust the angle gauges. I work on a jobsite so this saw inherently takes a beating everyday, and it isnt a big deal that it gets knocked out of square occasionally. I just want to be able to get it back to square without a problem. The screws and indicators will often move a tiny bit when you are tightening them down finally. I have gotten better, but I know they could come up with a better system.
Pros: fence, vertical cutting capacity, slide
Cons: hard to finely adjust angles
