No.

Since this takes a 12” blade, have you noticed any defleftion in the cuts? Or is this saw pretty true?

None noticed with the included Dewalt blade. But, it can depend on what blade you use.

Asked by Jeff November 18, 2020

Answers

I can cut 12 inch boards at 90 degrees. It is a really nice saw that was accurate right out of the box. The blade was square to the table and the saw cuts great.

Yes I can lock it in place.

Yes. It does. If working in humid conditions, pressure treated tends to bind up. You can however, attach a vacuum.

It does a bit, just don't be near your work when you pull the trigger and you'll be fine!!

There are lots of answers already to this question. No laser, but a cut-line light can (and should) be added. See prior answers to similar questions for details.

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.

DeWALT....DWS779 15 Amp Corded 12in Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw. I bought this saw to Upgrade from my DW716 Non Slider and I'm so glad I did it has more than met my expectations. The cutting capacity of this saw is great (14 inches wide) and the one thing that surprised me the most is how much quieter it is than my old one. this saw is light weight and can be moved around fairly easy. the 3800 RPM 15 Amp motor has lots of power. This saw does everything I need it to do and it will serve me well for many years. This is a great tool.

After one year of using this saw
I have had the saw for little over a year and now I am doing something that I really should have never need to do I am replacing bearings in the saw just after a year of use I now wish I would have purchased the Ridgid saw with its life time warranty. It is looking like Dewalt is now cutting corners there tools. I used a Dewalt saw for installing cabinets 15 years ago and never a problem hundreds of cabinets a year. No bearing replacement on that saw even after 4 years.

Had the saw delivered since my store never had it...
Had the saw delivered since my store never had it in stock. Ups put it right in front of my door. Giant yellow box. Thank goodness it was still there when I got home. Saw was perfect in the box, spent the whole weekend rebuilding the miter saw stand to fot the new saw. Made it 4 feet wide so that the dust bag didn’t hit the wall when turning the saw left or right. Great up grade, so glad I was able to get it.

This Saw Is A MONSTER!
Customer review from dewalt.com logo
Most everybody knows the purpose of a miter saw, so I'll focus on the features of this one you might not know about. This saw is packed with features, most of which are easily adjustable without any tools. The depth can be adjusted to restrict the depth of the cut by flipping down a stop and adjusting a wing nut. The slide length can be adjusted to restrict the length of the cut also with a wing nut. Combining these allows you repeat precision cuts. The Fence can also be extended on each side (again no tools required) for those longer boards. As far as the quality of the saw, its excellent. Perfectly square straight out of the box, and I haven't had to adjust it since I've owned it. I have yet to find a board it can't cut.
