Features

The 12-inch Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw includes a digital angle meter readout that displays your miter accurately up to 0.1 degrees for high-precision work. This saw's 15-amp motor achieves up to 3.3 hp to make quick cuts in the toughest lumber pieces. A soft-start system slowly ramps up the electric compound miter saw's power for greater control and safety when you first activate it. Constant power technology keeps the blade spinning fast even under high-demand situations. This dual bevel compound miter saw adjusts both ways so that you can make cuts in both sides of a piece without flipping it over. An integrated worklight illuminates the piece over the cut line so that you get safer and more precise cuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool to use. This model was a must for my workshop, I've used other miter saws but none can match the model. This miter saw delivery excellent cuts at different angles and it is easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best miter saw i saw comments on the right fence non sliding. here a little trick to let it slide just take a buffer and grind the mini stopper near the fence lock knob and the little round demi circle down center of the fence and et voila its slide

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Milwaukee tools have always been the high end product... It is my understanding that this is Milwaukee's first endeavor at a compound miter saw. Not too shabby! There is room for improvement, though. I won't expound on the fixed fence. Everyone else already has. I really like the concept of the digital miter angle readout, but, you didn't carry through on the bevel adjustment. I have to say that I found the bevel harder to adjust and tweak than my 30 year old cast iron Delta miter saw. Given the nice features on the miter table adjustments, then, why not the bevel adjustment. Loose the paddle lock. It doesn't really accomplish anything. How about replacing it with a worm gear adjustment and throw in a friction lock. Just for giggles, give it a digital angle readout for those of us that like really tight fit-ups. Oh, and that bevel gauge... You can do better than that. Give it a descent vernier gauge for accuracy. The brass thumb screw on the slide lock was broken off out of the box. A brass, metric thumb screw? Really? It now sports a stainless machine knob and brass 1/4"-20 stud. Looks good, works fine. Add some crown molding stops as accessories. After some drilling and tapping, mine now has a set of DeWalt's. Well...you didn't supply or offer them. Remember Milwaukee is the good stuff. It's a little more expensive,but, the serious craftsman, (small 'c'), understands that you get what you pay for. I hope that you will at least consider some of these additions, but, all things considered, darned, (is that better?), good saw. I'm proud to have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Miter Saw On the Market Today I own a building material store and I build custom furniture as a hobby business. We have sold several miter saws over the years, and this is the only saw that customers come back in to tell us how much they love it! I have owned several dewalt models and they simply don't compare to the Milwaukee. Positives It came out of the box 100% accurate. Adjusting the bevel with the large paddle handle is easier on this saw than any other. It slides smoother than any other saw on the market. The soft start motor makes it easier to handle and reduces fatigue. It also lets you concentrate on holding the workpiece instead of ensuring the saw doesn't jump up out of your hand. The dust collector seems to pick up a larger percentage of the dust than other saws. Bad things: 1 - The right side fence does not slide. Not the end of the world, but seriously...what were you thinking? 2 - The blade guard is clear, but you really can't see through it to make accurate cuts. It's good enough when cutting framing, but skews your vision too much to cut trim. I have to pull the guard up, set my piece, drop the guard, then cut. It takes some getting used to but the positives far outweight the negatives. 3 - If you turn the miter table too quickly, the digital read out gives you a number that is way out of whack. Returning it to 0 degrees or a preset stop seems to reset it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic saw Great saw! My digital display freaks out, but it has postive locks to work with. Better than Dewalt for the same price. Great tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lights... The two lights are not enough for good view sawing. And the protector blade are not clear to see the pencil line on Wood . I like to change for à Led lights....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic value and perfect cut I love this saw it is so perfect and have absolutely no complaints about it. I use this saw at home and on site in England, even in slightly damp atmosphere it performs brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best SCMS on the market This saw is the workhorse of the 12 in SCMS's. We switch off between this saw and the DWS780, and I prefer this one. The direct drive provides a smoother start and more consistent cut, and the power is noticeably better in large framing lumber and hardwoods. The digital miter gauge is very handy, as well are the lights, but the bevel adjust is the best in class. The detant override and fine adjust also work very well in correlation with the digital readout.
