How is the accuracy of this saw?

Asked by: Parts
I've found the accuracy of the angle detents for the right and left side of center are slightly off. Because the detents are cut into one piece of metal, that error cannot be adjusted out; if one side is right, the other side will be slightly off. The error does not affect routine work, but it is a problem when trying to do precision work with wide pieces. Also, DeWalt eliminated the vernier angle gauge that was standard on early models, another impact to precision work.

Does the stand come with the saw

Asked by: Jo
Yes, I bought the saw/stand combo (DWS-779)and mobile stand w/wheels as a package from Home Depot they advertised as a "Special Buy" for $399 last month (Nov). I haven't used it yet so no review.

DEWALT 15 Amp Corded 12 in. Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 713.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from TIME TESTED ACCURATE AND DURABLE ! Ive owned this saw for close to 20 years now and it is still as accurate today as was when I first bought it ! I used it in my one man cabinet shop ! I havent needed to adjust the settings on it since the original tune up ,when I first purchased it ! Although my saw is the European addition ! Same saw except it came wired for 220 volt power and the arbor is 1” instead of the standard 5/8” or .065 which these American saws come with . This worked out better for me because my panel scoring saw also has a 1” arbor so I could use blades on either machine . Recently retired and downsized my shop and will be selling this saw and dowsizing to Dewalt single bevel 12” miter saw which also has a 1” arbor so I dont have to purchase new blades . Not sure why Dewalt went with the 5/8 arbor with these as most 12 “ and larger blades usually come standard with the 1” arbor. Maybe because they realize that most homeowners already have 10 “ blades with their table saws which have 5/8” arbors !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Mitre Saw I purchased this Dewalt DWS779 from Home Depot Moncton, NB after messing up (2) 2X8 rectangular box with my el cheapo 9 in with about the same features. I had in mind to return it if it is as dumb as I am when it comes to cut and join 45 degree corners. So I followed all the instructions and 1/2 hour later I knew just enough to run a trial job: I used a 2X4 and cut four lenghts of 22" assembled them and as per the picture it is as perfect as I wanted it. When the length is as small as this one, any defects would be amplified; the longer the piece the less likely will you notice the defects. I also googled " how to cut perfect 45 degree with a mitre saw" and now I can do anything I set my mind to do. I am 68 years old and believe me when I say that when it comes to tools, spend a little more by purchasing top brands such as Dewalt and the results will surprise you. In fact I purchased this one while it was on sale. It does not have a laser line and to my point of view it is what it is... a gadget. Oh, by the way, I am keeping this gorgeous beast., worth the money and the 5 stars.

Assembly was quick and easy. Only had to make minute adjustment to get saw squared up. Saw is a lot longer than I had envisioned but will suffice. There is a serious design flaw in the saw though. When using the saw with out the depth stop, the saw can go deep enough to cut into the plate below . I would have liked it to come with a laser cut alignment. Over all so far so good as have only used the saw a few times in the month or so that I have owned it.

Replaced a Dewalt 12 compound miter with this slider because I needed longer cuts. The old Dewalt I had was over 10 years old and was a workhorse and this should be the same. The saw is great and is making nice bevel cuts on 10" PVC lumber for a project I'm working on. It took me a little while to get used to it since I've been using a 10" and 12" miter for many years, but glad I made the purchase. I've been a Dewalt man for years. All my tools are 'yellow'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In general, i think this DeWalt saw is very good... In general, i think this DeWalt saw is very good quality and so far, has functioned quite well. One suggestion i have for this product is the addition of an Exhaust Hose connector of a larger, standard size. The 1-3/4" OD on the Exhaust port is an odd-size and it has been a little difficult to find connections for an Exhaust system rather than the simple bag that comes with the saw.

Great saw, very powerful 15 amp, 3800 rpms cuts thru lumber with ease. 12" makes for deeper cuts so no issue with 4X4's or 6X6' max cutting depth at 90° is 6.75. Bevels both ways, miters both ways, & slides for wider boards. What more do you need, a laser, no it doesn't have one, but I don't need one as I'm always outside & they are hard to see, besides I always draw my line.

I recently upgraded from the 10 inch compund miter saw to the 12 inch sliding miter saw and the difference is incredible. I wish I would have made the switch earlier. I have a confidence in DeWalt products that they are going to last for years to come. This is a great value for a powerful saw!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from loose blade I have purchased several DeWalt products ovet the years and have always been very happy. However this time I purchaaed the sliding miter saw and for some reason the blade wasnt tight and when i stared it to cut wood the blade bounced out hitting me in tbe head causing many sticthes above my right eye. My advice check blade before using
