does this saw have a lazer for cutting precise?

Asked by: elsa123
There is not a lazer on this saw but an aftermarket lazer can be bolted on.

How is bevel angle adjusted?

Is the control for this adjustment located on the back of the saw or on the front? I've read that there is a digital read out, is the read out for the miter angle or the bevel angle?
Asked by: Red Hot Rider
Release a large handle at the rear of the saw and tilt the saw left or right. There is angle gauge, that once I set it properly, has proven accurate.

12 in. Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 181.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw. Great Saw. Super durable. Right out of the box it cut thick maple boards like butter. I did notice the motor took 2-5 seconds to spin up the blade to full RPMs. Just something to be aware about if you want a clean cut. This also might be a safety feature. The angle controls on the front allow the saw to be super accurate with your cuts. The slider motion is fluid, with no unnecessary side to side play. Not as good as the Bosch Mitre saw, but for the price it's a great second option. This saw is built to last. If you're looking for a light weight saw, this isn't it. This saw is heavy and designed to do a full day of trim or fine cuts with incredible accuracy. I also got the locking stand with the deal. The stand is heavy and is designed to take a lot of weight and not move while cutting. Although the stand is mobile, I wouldn't say its easy to move around. Set it up for the day and lock in your saw. Overall, this saw is great and it you're doing any fine cuts or trim work, this saw should be on your list to look at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saw is a MONSTER! This saw is Awesome. From the digital read out to the power of the motor. It is large and heavy but sets on a very stable base. The saw was squared to the table right out of the box with the blade already on. This really was a "plug'n'go" saw. The hand grip is very comfortable and user friendly with a switch easily accessible for the LED lights. I did use the saw at night, using only the LED's to light my cut line. I was impressed. The miter has built in stops that are actually true and lock in with ZERO slop. The true power test for me was a cut across grain in a piece of 3" thick 6" wide white oak. It was like I was cutting a 1x4 piece of PINE! There was no power loss at all. It was a quick smooth cut. I've used most of the brands out there, and this is definitely the BEST. The draw backs are: not a wide table, but due to the weight of the saw, anymore weight would not make this a portable saw. No hold downs and I wish the digital readout was on a switch, It is on the whenever the saw is plugged in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall a good quality saw, but with some issues. In all this is a good quality saw that has some nice features. The lights, digital miter readout, and a soft start motor are great. It's also solid and well built. That said it also has it's flaws. The old school undermount rails are reasonably smooth, but as with all undermounts when you push the head of the saw in , you are basically pushing at an angle which tends to introduce unwanted error. This is one of the reasons most rails these days are mounted higher up. The upward facing miter detents tend to collect sawdust, and if you are not very diligent about cleaning them, they can easily throw your cuts off by half a degree or more. Curiously the miter table sits slightly lower than the rest of the table, and when cutting thin delicate pieces this can cause unwanted tearout and even a slight bevel on the cut end. This is a great saw for framing, decking, or something similar, where durability is more important than precision, but I can't recommend it for high end finish work or cabinet making

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine I ordered this saw because it had the best reviews and I could tell it is well engineered. I had a makita 10" mitersaw ls1016 and was not at all pleased with it overall. As soon as I un-boxed this new saw it was obvious to me the quality. Upon use I found that this saw is not only good but is in fact great. It is everything you want from a mitersaw. easy adjustments, no deflection on cuts, powerful and large capacity overall. This thing is a beast. The digital readout is not gimmicky whatsoever. It is very helpful and thank god for no laser. No real finish carpenters or contractors rely on lasers! you guys all know what I am talking about, Now dual lights...that is actually helpful. The dust collection is brilliant. There are only a couple cons to this saw...the weight and no clamp. Those are both dismissable however. The weight is there because the saw is made well and the saw is outfitted with rubber where you grab hold of it and a back hadle for easy carrying. The clamp is rarely used and Milwaukee is aware of that. You can find a clamp that will fit though. For the price this is the best saw. The only real competitor is the Kapex which is drastically more expensive. I rather have the milwaukee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw. Great value Great saw. Powerful, clean cuts. A bit noisier than my Bosch and have to get used to the 2 second delay for blade to start up, but blade brake works perfectly. the 12" blade and high opening allow for great flexibility. Happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice saw but... Very nice saw... but I'm not a fan of the fence design.It's difficult to secure when using stop blocks and the mounting holes to secure a longer fence in place is too high. It would be better if the fence was once piece and lower.
Date published: 2019-07-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Saw This has been the best mitre saw I have ever used. My only complaint has been how heavy and awkward it is to move around, but I realize without the weight it wouldn't be as good of a saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money This saw works great Smooth and accurate. The only negative I can say is it’s heavy to move around
