Questions & Answers

What is the difference between the 780 and the 779?

Asked by: JJ
A lot of half-correct answers here! The main difference is the blade kerf light on the 780. But there's one other important one: only the 780 has four holes in the bottom fence for screwing in a 1.5" support platform to extend the cutting capacity to 16". I found that out the hard way with my 779 after being assured by HD that the light was the only diff. You can secure a platform other ways (I'm going to try sideways clamps into a notch cut into the platform), but I'm still PO-ed. The stories about miter angle differences and weight, etc... I don't think that's right.

How is the accuracy of this saw?

Asked by: Parts
Perfectly accurate. If you line up the side of the blade with your line, that's where it cuts.

Dose it come with any blades?
Asked by: Dougie
Mine arrived with a 32 tooth blade, I contacted Dewalt and they sent me a 80 tooth crosscut blade free of charge.

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.
