Customer Questions & Answers

does this saw have a lazer for cutting precise?

Asked by: elsa123
There is not a lazer on this saw but an aftermarket lazer can be bolted on.

How is bevel angle adjusted?

Is the control for this adjustment located on the back of the saw or on the front? I've read that there is a digital read out, is the read out for the miter angle or the bevel angle?
Asked by: Anonymous
Release a large handle at the rear of the saw and tilt the saw left or right. There is angle gauge, that once I set it properly, has proven accurate.

12 in. Sliding Dual Bevel Miter Saw is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I've had this saw for 6 years and still haven't found a better saw. I'm a finish carpenter and use my mitre saw daily. The only drawbacks are it's weight and the cheap and inacurate stand. The saw is heavier than dewalt and bosch. I've upgraded to the the dewalt stand and find it to be of a higher quality than the Milwaukee stand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not really a Mobile friendly saw, just too heavy I have used this saw since November 2016 doing mostly finish work (Crown Moulding,Chair Rails and furniture building) This saw is just too heavy for one person to move from one location to another by yourself. I owned another 12" prior to this and could carry it around all day and it didn't even have a stand. I bought the saw with the stand it's over 100Ibs moving it around for one person. You'll need to leave it in one location and just keep going back and forth for your cuts. Performance, It makes nice and clean cut's using MDF,Pine,Maple & walnut I've used. Dust, It's not that good and using it inside will create nothing but a mess even using a standard shopvac. I use the Festool CT 26 and it did an amazing job but that's also $$$ for the average buyer. Note you need an adapter to hook any vac up and it makes it stick 2 feet from the wall because of the rails. Design/Features, You're getting many cool things that many saws don't have. (Digital readout,Depth cut limiter) it just doesn't have a laser to help really get those perfect miters. You also can't use any material that's the height of the fence because the black plastic guard will hit it. Giving $800.00 never because of the weight issue!!! Buying on sale Yes!!! I will be looking for a new saw soon through. Hope my review helps some folks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Near Homerun... I bought this after returning a new 2017 Rigid miter saw (with a now well-known blade wobble flaw in those units). On the Milwaukee.... The dust collection into the supplied bag is actually really good—probably the best on the market. The table moves and locks nicely, and accurate out of the box. The handle LED fine-tuner is also very accurate, if that's something the finisher's need. The LED work lights provide nice lighting in dimmer situations. The saw falls short, compared to new ones on the market (like the Dewalt and the new 12" Rigid) with a turn handle to tighten the miter table, as where new designs are a faster, simple on/off lock. And both the new Rigid and Dewalt have an LED guide-light system (XPS) that casts the shadow of the saw blade on your workpiece providing an infallible guideline, which does speed up work flow. Again, the Milwaukee has LED flood lights, but they don't provide this kind of guidance (which I admittedly thought they did when I bought it.) Also, there is no work clamp provided. It's a great saw, but it would be nice to see these little updates in this older design, which all together, would make the saw more efficient to use. The new Rigid—if it were engineered without the blade wobble and vibration issues—would've been perhaps the best saw on the market with the widest miter settings, extended tables, guide clamp, good weight, great price, and LED guide light that works like a darn.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall a good quality saw, but with some issues. In all this is a good quality saw that has some nice features. The lights, digital miter readout, and a soft start motor are great. It's also solid and well built. That said it also has it's flaws. The old school undermount rails are reasonably smooth, but as with all undermounts when you push the head of the saw in , you are basically pushing at an angle which tends to introduce unwanted error. This is one of the reasons most rails these days are mounted higher up. The upward facing miter detents tend to collect sawdust, and if you are not very diligent about cleaning them, they can easily throw your cuts off by half a degree or more. Curiously the miter table sits slightly lower than the rest of the table, and when cutting thin delicate pieces this can cause unwanted tearout and even a slight bevel on the cut end. This is a great saw for framing, decking, or something similar, where durability is more important than precision, but I can't recommend it for high end finish work or cabinet making

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast! This is my second saw of this model. I am a professional and my first one lasted 8 years and worked extremely hard. I crossed over 300,000 miles through various states using this saw cutting literally miles of wood trim and even some dimensional 2 x lumber. It was a beast of a saw and that is why I bought another just like it. Thanks Milwaukee!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality sliding compound miter saw After many years of use of a competitors compound miter saw I upgraded to the Milwaukee sliding miter saw for improved accuracy and capability to cut larger cross sections. The saw is a bit heavy but one person can handle moving it around. Another high quality Milwaukee product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have had a Milwaukee miter saw for the last few years that is used in a high school wood shop,... We have had a Milwaukee miter saw for the last few years that is used in a high school wood shop, and gets abused because of its use by inexperienced students. It held up very well, so we purchased a second one for another classroom.
