Questions & Answers

What is the difference between the 780 and the 779?

Answered by: SAW

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 with Bonus 20 Series 12 in. 60T Fine Finish Saw Blade is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 650.
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 2 out of 5 by from I've had this saw for a couple of years now. I'm disappointed in its accuracy and quality. The b... I've had this saw for a couple of years now. I'm disappointed in its accuracy and quality. The biggest problem is it will not cut the identical miter angle when set to the same mark on the left and right sides of zero. If you calibrate the saw for a perfect 90 degree cut, and then adjust the angle guide so it is perfect on the right side, it will be off on the left side, by a tenth or two. The design is such that there is no way to adjust that out. This is no big deal for most routine finish jobs, but If you need precision to work with large crown and other wide pieces like I do, this small error is amplified, and it is a problem. My ancient non-slide Dewalt miter saw does not have this issue. I also find it unacceptable that Dewalt has eliminated the vernier angle gauge that was standard on my old saw. The slide lock is terrible. It slips and lets the saw go sliding unexpectedly, like when lowering it on the miter saw stand. This saw is cumbersome and heavy to move about, compared to my non-slide saw. Make sure you really really need the slide, otherwise the non-slide saw is a better choice.

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
