Has anyone used a miter saw with the diamond blade (masonry blade) to cut concrete pavers or bricks?

I wouldn’t recommend it. You need water to keep the blade cooled. These aren’t designed for use around water. Plus, the material would really scratch up the saw base.

Hey Fred I believe the sales are weekly but in some instances they go longer. Looking at the price of 399.00 is pretty good, saving 200.00 is nice for this saw!! On the other hand I got mine for 359.00 online only as I believe this one is. Honestly saving 200.00 for this beast of a trim saw. Don’t wait, go pick it up before it goes back to 599.00...JimmyG

Dewalt DWS779 Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw
This miter saw has the largest cutting capacity of all the 12" Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw I have seen. It is a 15 amp 3800 rpm work horse. The saw comes mostly assembled with the items that you have to assemble not requiring tools. The 12" blade comes with the saw and is already attached. A saw blade wrench is included and it mounts on a holder attached to the deck for quick blade change. It has a safety to decrease the chance of accidentally starting the saw. The Sliding Fence Support can cut 2 x 14 at 90 degrees. This saw is a beast and the only thing missing is a laser guide. I have been using a 7 1/4" saw and needed to upgrade so I finally got the one I need. Only had it for a day but will be using it this week. I have a YouTube video: https://youtu.be/v7tjOaHKVd4 showing the easy setup. I am a Building Maintenance Service Technician and love the Dewalt tool lineup.

Great saw but has some flaws
Had a 12" Dewalt sliding compound miter saw for 25 yrs. Electrical safety brake doesn't work right anymore. Takes 3 seconds to stop, even after trying to fix it, and thats unacceptable with certain cuts. The cost for me selling the old and getting a new one would be only about $120, so it sounded great. Anyhow, I am looking to return the new one because of 2 major issues. The first is that many more of the components are not the same quality as the old. The old parts are of thicker gauge and mostly metal, whereas, many of the new saw components are thinner and plastic. For instance, the stainless steel miter guide with detents is thinner and I'm not sure how well it will hold accuracy after years of use and wear. The old miter gauge was thicker and even had a bend in the outside curve that beefs the detent up quite a bit. But the major problem I have with the saw is with the rear fences that slide toward and away from the blade, allowing for angled cuts and such. Though the left adjustable fence is milled well, and is in plane with the permanent rear vertical support, the right fence is not. The right fence is more than 1/64" out of alignment with the rest of the vertical supports. And the rear fence also seats at a vertical tilt when it is locked in place. So the right rear fence may help support the piece, but when you finish a cut, you like will get a bind on the saw blade as the waste part moves. Who wants a bed or rear support that isn't square or flat? I really like the other parts of the saw, and it seemed promising, but I'm not sure I can live with these defects of the saw. I thought this might be a defective saw fence, but I examined the display model in HD, and discovered that they are milled the same, and that all will likely have this defect. Its a shame, because the old saw has been a beast and owes me nothing, but I think I will likely stick with the old one. If one buys this saw for general cutting, I don't think you will find a better saw at this price point. But for those who want dead-on accuracy for precision work, this may not fit the bill.
