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.

Why did the price jump from $499 (not a sale price) to $649 since December 2012?

Asked by JCalifornia January 13, 2013
3
Answers

I think you might be looking at two different saws. The sliding saw has always been at the $649 price on every sight that i looked at, and the $499 price was a sale price from Home Depot for this saw. That is when I got it. $499 is the price of the none sliding saw.

What would be the shipping charge on this saw to my nearest store? #1122

Asked by Inletjoe September 2, 2012

$0. Home depot did not charge for delivery to my local store.

Its a nice saw, mechanically it works great, real accurate. The angle meter didn't work on the first one or the second one, sent the 2nd one back. I like the saw so I will keep it, just have to send it into Milwaukee tool repair to fix the display.

First one arrived with defective LCD readout. Home Depot made for an easy exchange. Something to be said for buying from a store with a brick and mortar presence. Regarding some of the previous complaints - a clamp comes with the saw that attaches to either side of the blade, and both the right and left fences are adjustable. Saw cuts smoothly, in particular the rails are like glass. I'm a weekend do-it-your-self'er, from what I can see the saw is accurate for both miter and bevel cuts from the factory. I haven't adjusted anything but it works well for me. Very happy with the purchase, didn't see the value in bumping up to the Festool and I don't think anything else comes close. Paired with a Bosch T4B gravity rise stand and a Freud blade and it's an awesome combo.

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.

We bought this saw mainly for putting in our new hardwood floors and trim. It has exceeded our expectations. I love the digital miter control, it operates smoothly, cleanly and accurately. I will using this in the future for many more projects that I thought I would not be able to construct myself.
