Good reviews from Home Depot
There’s a couple of videos on YouTube showing this miter saw
Ah hell, my radial arm saw just fried out. This thing will be a lot smaller and do most of what I need. I’m in for one.
This has all the features that a high performance miter saw should have. The double bevel (cut from left side and right side as well) is very important. It can be very confusing when cutting a compound miter on some very ornate and intricate crown molding, even for an expert and certainly for a novice. NOTE: Most of the lesser saws do not have the dual bevel feature.
The laser guide is a very nice and very helpful feature to have as well. There is a old saying among woodworkers…“measure twice and cut once.” Well with the laser guide there is no need for that, as the laser beam shows you EXACTLY where the saw will make the cut before you cut.
Finally, the electronic brake is a great safety item. When you shut down the saw, the blade does not continue to free wheel…it stops in less than 2 or 3 seconds.
I own a saw very much like this one and I find it a joy to use. By the way, there are several very nice miter saw stands that you can buy. De Walt makes one but it’s kind of pricy. I like the one made by Skill. It’s very sturdy, it folds up very nicely and is easy to hang on the wall when not in use and it allows you to remove your miter saw in a flash. $89 at Lowes.
Oh Woot! you got me again!
Expecting to spend no money and I leave here with a miter saw, projector, and screen. $400 later, I’m going to bed!
Looks like the same one for $138.80 shipped. Can anyone tell me if or what the real difference is???
I see the different model number but specs look pretty much the same…
It appears that that one isn’t a double-bevel like the w00t! offering.
Aha no laser as well…
Is this a refurb? I think maybe it is? HD shows 2 yr warranty but this says 1 yr…
Not according to the description: Condition New
Great post, but I will point out that a laser doesn’t resolve the purpose of measuring twice. You measure twice to be sure you got the measurement right, not the placement of the blade!
They both have left and right miter ability, looks like the laser might be the only difference
I was checking a WEN at sears the other day and I have to say it wasn’t that bad compared to some of the other name brands but when sliding it back and forth it was very gritty. Might want to consider lubing it up a bit if you run into the same issue.
That’s what she said.
Because if I don’t say it, someone else will…
The one at the Wayfair link has left and right miter but does not have right bevel listed as a feature.
