How much clearance does this saw need from a wall? I'd like to install it onto a workbench that ...

Asked by LittleMac March 23, 2021
1
Answer

If your work bench is only 24" deep and flush with the wall this saw is too big unless you pull it away from the wall. The front of the mounting base to dust collector (without the bag) is 27". The saw at 90 deg. from the overall is 39". I use mine on a Rigid folding stand that works just great for me.

What are the differences on the Dewalt Mitre Saw corded, besides price

Asked by RC March 18, 2021
3
Answers

This one is dual bevel which means it can can cut angles by tilting left and right instead of just one way. Just makes it easier to figure out difficult cuts for trim molding. It’s also a sliding compound which means it can cut wider boards. All depends on what you plan on using it for.

is there a way to fix the blade from hitting the bottom insert? its hitting about 1/8

Asked by itsme March 15, 2021

Answer

Do you mean the black plastic when the saw bottoms out. That’s actually a device that will tell you or people if the saw has been used before. It doesn’t harm anything. It will just show you if it’s definitely brand new or used

What is the difference between the DWX723 and the DWX724?

Asked by Ken March 13, 2021
5
Answers

The DWX723 is the longer version of the compact DWX724 miter saw stand. Unless you have an extremely small storage space or are transporting this stand in a small vehicle, getting the longer stand is a huge improvement. It collapses to less than 6', but the supports go out to 12'6". The short stand (length is the only difference!) is only $20 less, but it is 44" wide collapsed/ 8'4" extended.

How can this have a max cut thickness of 6.75"? That's more than half the blade diameter!

Asked by Jay March 5, 2021

Answers

I am asking about thickness not width! i understand its a sliding miter, but it says max thickness cut is 6.75", according to that you could cut a 6x6 post in one cut on this thing, which i don't believe.

Yes - Hi! Look up your model on the Dewalt web page and follow the links to parts.

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.

A very good miter saw stand. Very sturdy and plenty of length for longer planks. The only complaint i would have is I wish this stand had some wheels on one end for easier moving instead of having to carry it. A friend of mine has the Ridgid miter saw stand which is not as well built as this Dewalt, but the Ridgid does have wheels to help move without much lifting..

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.
