Customer reviewsGreat Little Saw...EXCEPT for THIS
Ok, let me preface this review... Love the saw except for one thing which all of you should know about. I ve done a few pretty major jobs with saw now, and overall it has made my work life better. -so 5 stars so far. I d buy it again unless DeWalt comes up with something even better. With only a 7.25 blade I was not expecting miracles capacity-wise and I bought it mostly to cut small trim that does not warrant hauling around a big saw. It was perfectly set up right out of the box - I didn t have to adjust anything except the scale pointers The saw cut perfect 90 and 45 in both directions turn and bevel... I just tweaked the pointers to make it read more accurately for ME. Even those might have been perfect for someone else. I also put the thinnest highest-toothed carbide finishing blade on it that I could find - The blade that comes with it is just fine - a high quality DeWalt carbide blade... but I am doing very fussy cabinet trim work at the moment and wanted the finest cut highest tooth number I could find. The shadow light blade indicator works perfectly- way more accurate than the typical blade laser. One minor beef - the switch to turn the light on is stiff and harder to operate than it needs to be it s under a little rubber dust moisture proof cap - very small for my fat fingers.
