Asked by mikeyb February 28, 2021

Answer

Hi! The mounting brackets are very versatile. I've bought several extra pairs and use them on my Dewalt 12 inch compound sliding miter saw, a Mikata 8-inch compound sliding miter saw that I use for little trim work, and a Ryobi planer. And I've made some custom supports for long work using extra brackets... Cut some stock to match the height above the stand for the tool I will use. You normally use two brackets per tool. Each bracket has two slots to attach to the tool, not holes. The minimum spacing is about 7 inches and the maximum is about 15 inches (that would be front to back). Side to side there are really no restrictions - each bracket has its own clamp to hold the stand and is independent of the other so you can put them as close together or as far apart as you want.

Is there an adjustment to allow control over the depth of cut?

Asked by Sean December 28, 2020
2
Answers

yes, in fact I was just using this over the weekend. There is a Allen socket head screw that can be adjusted to control depth of cut. There is also a wing nut to lock the screw in place so that the depth of cut does not wander. When you want to control depth of cut you simply flip down a small lever that will contact the head of the screw providing consistent depth of cut. You can flip the lever out of the way to go back to full cut capabilities. This allows you to go back and forth between full cut and depth of cut settings without having to readjust the socket head set screw.

What is xps technology?

Asked by Hi December 11, 2020
2
Answers

XPS technology is the new LED lighting system that is used to ensure the accuracy of cuts. The old saws used to use lasers but it was never very accurate. The XPS system is aligned so that you know exactly where the blade will cut and how much wood you will lose by showing the shadow of your blade exactly on your piece of wood.

Asked by Timmers October 30, 2020

Answers

Hi - That's a lot of question! I think you should always check that the blade is square to the fence (both up and down and side to side). Adjust as needed following the instructions in the manual. If the saw was handled carefully, it should be pretty good to start. It is hard to know... I like the dewalt miter saw stand as it has the work supports that slide out on the right and left sides. And they are adjustable for the height of your saw. You can buy extra mounting brackets and mount other tools on this stand (those brackets are pretty universal - long slots, not drilled only for the dewalt saw). I have my smaller chop saw (from another brand) and a planar mounted on brackets and use them all on this stand. Dewalt does make a shorter stand that takes the same mounting brackets and doesn't have the sliding work supports. It is much lighter for mobile work, but you give up a lot of the capabilities. I use that just when I have to do a quick job and know I am not going to need to support long work (or have a helper I can coax into holding the work...).

Answers

The brackets that attach the saw to the stand are generic and can be bolted to most any saw. If by some situation your saw won't work; you can still attach a piece of plywood as a base for your saw and attach that to the brackets. In any case yes it will work, in fact: if your 8 ft tall you could attach your table saw to it.

Great Saw Stand
I have been using this stand for well over two years and is is a great piece of equipment. It's very stable and doesn't wobble at all. Moving it is a little cumbersome but just take your time. The only real issue that I've had is with the sliding/adjustable material supports/stops. The cheap little lock down knob was worthless. It's a little two sided knob that didn't last but just a few months before both sides cracked a fell apart. I use these a lot and also found that getting my large fingers in to turn the little two sided knob was frustrating at the least. Dewalt should have spent another dollar and supplied some wheel like knobs. I replaced my broken knobs with a round one with finger slots. They work great and lock down very easy and secure.

Excellent saw.
I purchased this saw one month ago, and have had several opportunities to use it. I am impressed. Did it come perfectly squared out of the box? The main table did not, but I verified that before cutting anything, and was able to follow the instructions to make it square quite easily. Even at full extension it cuts square and does not flex. The bevel gauge was set exactly on in the factory. Simply remember: trust, but verify. Some other reviews mentioned a plastic piece under the table being in the way of the blade. It is not a problem. the piece of the dust collection channel which contacts the blade before the first cut is made is less than an inch long and maybe 1/16 inch is cut away on the first cut. This does not impact the dust collection or saw operation at all. The dust collection works, OK, maybe best possible for a sliding saw. Connect a shop vac to the saw and there is very little to clean up. The light (XPS) for casting a blade shadow is very nice, and it is dead on. Is it a crutch? Sure. Do you have to use it? No. That's your choice, but without an in shop workstation it is a huge help. The light is bright enough and focused so the cut line matches the shadow exactly. Some things that are not 100%. The stock clamp has its limits, specifically with thinner or narrow stock. The screw design tends to cause the stock to twist away from the fence as it is being tightened, heads up. The table extensions/carry handles, meh. They do not fit properly and end up not aligning with the table . Home Depot product description states this saw will cut 2 x 16 dimensional lumber. Nope. Max cut measures to 14 inches from fence on the table. DeWalt specifies 14 inch max cut on their box. While unpacking my saw I discovered the clamps for the extensions/carry handles were not in the box. I emailed DeWalt customer service directly specifying the issue, with photos, and received a case #. After about a week I called DeWalt and left a message requesting a call back. I received a call after about two hours. The customer service rep listened, took the case number, placed an order to provide the missing parts and explained the needed shipping time. I received the parts within the estimated shipping time. Excellent customer service. Ironic that I will not be using the extension/carry handles. Overall, it is an excellent saw.

I bought this saw to replace a 20+ year old Bosch 3912 which finally killed itself. I've been waiting for this funeral for a long time (the Bosch wasn't a slider and only had various laser add-ons and kerf plates over the years). It was exciting to find my local Home Depot had this Dewalt in stock and I could get it during the pandemic easily. It is quite evolved since the time the Bosch was designed. I'm very impressed with everything about it. Even more so that it was a direct replacement right onto my BOSCH Portable Gravity-Rise Wheeled Miter Saw Stand T4B. Same hardware and super easy to swap out. Definitely recommend that stand for this saw. In a lot of reviews of this saw I've seen questions about if the extra cost for the LED "laser" line was worth the extra cost over the model without it. The answer is a definite YES. A quality add-on laser is at least $120 and those are not nearly as good as this LED system. It lights your work and casts a very clear shadow of the blade cut-line onto your work, just narrower than the width of the blade. Easy to get used to and very much clearer than a laser in most lighting. The fence is totally straight (my Bosch was not and there was no way to adjust it). The fence is high and slides easily. The extra detents are excellent. I already used one of the odd ones 31.x degrees (or somewhere around there) for some stair risers. Perfect. Easy to tilt the saw and calibrate every stop, and go back to exactly 90 degrees with no hassle. My only complaint is that the instructions fail to mention how you get the 16" capacity. Remove the fences and raise the back of the material to sit on top of the remaining sub-fence. There are little stops at the back of it. You can add 1.5" of material to raise the material up level, or just cut your workpiece at an angle with no support (at least for construction-grade cuts). Definitely make it level if you are using hardwoods for a nice project. This model has been out for almost a decade, and they haven't added that to the manual yet, but it's advertised on the display saws at Home Depot? I figured it out by searching the internet for others who had figured it out. Weird. The other thing is the manual says you can slide the kerf plates together to narrow the kerf. That's not true. You'll need to buy an aftermarket zero-clearance kerf plate for that. Again, a decade later and the manual is still wrong? Anyway, it is light years ahead of what it replaced, and I recommend it. One last thing - the dust collection is terrible, but so are all saws less than $1000. Hook up a vacuum hose (see photo) and it works much better. Also there are videos out there showing how to modify the dust collection shroud to vastly improve it. I plan to do that, eventually.

Best Value for the Money Hands Down
Spot on out of the box. Blade was perfectly square to fence, and perfectly plumb, and ready to cut. I checked all bolts first and they were all properly tightened. The DeWalt definitely has a fairly well designed dust extraction and is a workhorse. I don't need the added girth, but you can rip 16" wide 2" plank with it if you remove the lower fence with a simple Torx bit. It easily rivals the $600.00 Bosch. Only slight problem was the blade bottoms out slightly beneath the throat plate on a small haunch of plastic. It's just a small design oversight. You can adjust the depth stop to solve it. But, that's not necessary because the raised plastic serves no structural purpose. Just rip through the plastic a bit at a time. Problem solved. Upgrading this saw to equal the DWS780 @ $600.00 is easy enough by adding the XPS Light System It can be had online for $70.00 and there are videos that show how easy it is to modify. Like most woodworkers (I'm a fine artist, not a craftsman), accuracy is very important to me, and I tend to always use my eye, not a laser. I never use them. Lo and behold the XPS light system is NOT a laser. It's amazing. No more pencil lines needed all the way across a board anymore with this light. It's perfectly accurate. I'm not joking. The shadow the light casts onto your wood piece is so accurate it shows the blade thickness and the teeth of both sides of the blade the full length of your board's width. This saw has it going on. If you can afford the DWS780 at $600 then go for it and save yourself the outfit hassle. Dust extraction problem is not as bad as everyone says in these reviews. The little rubber shroud form the factory intended to funnel sawdust into the dust collector tube is not the best design but also easily modified. I unfolded the rubber onto a copper sheet and slightly enlarged it, and curved it after tin-snipping and smoothing it. Now hooked up to a 6HP Shop VAC 75%+ of my saw dust is gone. It really does not get much better than that for any miter saw. I'll include 3 photos here showing the XPS Shadow Light after modifying mine and the copper shroud. You'll also notice I added a custom zero tolerance sacrificial fence and throat plate. The closeup of the XPS Light shadow cast is without a drawn pencil line to show sharpness. Also, the shadow does not lose width or integrity with length like a laser. 100% accurate when you place your cut line on the blades tooth shadow. I'd rate this DWS779 miter saw 5 stars all day.
