Dewalt 10 In. Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Mitre Saw

The DeWALT Heavy-Duty 10 In. Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Mitre Saw is remarkably versatile and easy to use. It features an exclusive bevel detent system with 7 positive stops for easy, accurate, repeatable cuts. Machined base and fence support keeps the fence perpendicular with the blade for better cutting accuracy, while a horizontal handle offers better ergonomics and improved comfort. An exclusive back fence design allows for horizontal capacity of 14 In. and vertical capacity of 16-1/4 In. Mitre capacity is 60 degrees left and 52 degrees right for greater versatility. Adjustable stainless steel mitre detent plate with 11 positive stops improves productivity and accuracy, while a built-in carrying handle allows for easier portability.

Versatile Miter Saw,

"I used to have a Ridgid 10" miter saw but returned it and bought this one because of Ridgid's limitations:
- range of angles,
- depth of cut.
You will eventually get into cuts that you need mitre and bevel angles over 45 deg.s. For example, doing something simple such as installing quarter rounds usually requires cuts over 45 degrees because not all corners are true 90.
Also, the sliding feature is a must. It will increase the usefulness of your saw and saves you a lot of time. In comparison, without the sliding feature you will need to take your work to a table saw, say to create a notch. It is much safer and faster to do it on a sliding miter saw.
I use a professional dust collector with this saw, yet about 20% of wood dust is sprayed out. So don't get surprised. This is my solution for the remaining 20% (see picture).
The clamp is also not designed as well as Ridgid's but works if you are patient. I use a pair of Irwin clamps. They save my time and let me do things the built in clamp won't.
I researched extensively to pick this saw. If you are looking for even better quality you should be prepared to pay well over a grand for German brands, such as Festool. This saw is good for 99% of what you will encounter, even in fine carpentry projects."

Fantastic mitre saw ...,
August 8, 2009
By LesHandyman
from Mississauga, ON
"Really fantastic miter saw. I am using extensively for many projects around the house. The laser installed on this saw (extra charge) is a great feature and I love it the most. Don’t forget to hook up to the vacuum to reduce dust. Just too bad that the price for this saw went up twice in a past few months."

Great Saw!,
April 3, 2009

"The majority of my power tools are DeWalt and I have had excellent service from them which influenced my decision to a great degree on the purchase of a replacement mitre saw. There is no question there are many good saws from other manufacturers but for me the choice was clear.
The DW 717 offers very similar cutting capacities and features to the larger 12 inch DW 718 but for a purchase price that is $200.00 less. As well, 10 inch replacement or speciality blades are usually less expensive and more often to be "on sale".
The saw is powerful and accurate (right out of the box) and the slide action is very smooth. The cam lock mitre detent system is the best of any saw I have used. It is solidly built but like any large saw a little on the heavy side.
To use this saw to its full potential it requires a stand. Buy the DW 723 mitre saw stand and you won't be disappointed."

great saw!,
December 2, 2008
By mcochrane2
from toronto ontario
"A new model with some excellant features:
1) A full 14" crosscut capacity at 90 deg.
2) 30 deg angled cuts
Those two features alone make this a great saw. Then add in the soft start, electronic brake and you've got a winner."
