This review is for a saw that I’ve been using almost daily for a little over four years now. I purchased the DW718 after using the DW708 for over nine years. Out of the box I noticed that the base had grown a bit, but still had 110 degrees of miter settings and the same simple to adjust detent plate. I found this to be a plus after witnessing what some of my peers experienced while reclibrating some of the other manufactures mitersaws. From my experience the only time I’ve had an...

01. shippingI ordered this from reconditionedsales.comPackaging was pretty normal, like the standard for this type of tool. Huge box to say the least. Ordered on a Friday and received the saw on a Tuesday morning with regular UPS shipping. 02. hardware listEverything was in the box. Box looked like it was new. This was however a reconditioned miter saw, but I could not tell it at all. 03. assemblingEasy, not much to do. 04. tuning and adjustingAdjusted the insert throat on each s...

Klutch Compound Sliding Miter Saw with Laser Guide — 10in.

I already have had both a 12” Dewalt and a 7 1/4” Craftsman miter saw for many years. They have served their purpose well. But I wanted a 10” sliding for my personal shop. We all know you can put a crap blade on a good saw and get crap, but sometimes… sometimes you can put a good blade on a good saw and get great results. That’s what I have here. This saw is smooth operating, easily adjusts and dials in, is light weight, and has been powerful enough for eve...

Ridgid Miter Saw stand doesn't disappoint

Ridgid Miter Saw stand doesn't disappoint

This is my first review, so here we go…... So i was looking to upgrade my miter saw stand from my trusty Ryobi Stand. I have to admit, i was perfectly happy with that stand, and really didnt think I would be upgrading anytime soon. However, the lack of mobility with that stand finally got the better of me. I really like to have my saw very close when i’m casing out doors and windows and moving my Dewalt 10” slider and stand was getting to be too much of a hassle. I ...

BackgroundI bought this saw specifically for a workshop bench task I had to do, and the small saw I had was not accurate or large enough to cut 300mm wide material.So as a result if you know of any LJs needing a small drop saw its available see Photo no 2I have never seen the brand before and was a little hesitant to purchase it first up so some research was conducted to evaluate it and some others I was familar with. The decision to buy it was based on its price and the ability to cut 300...

Great Saw for a Great Price

Great Saw for a Great Price

03-01-2008 03:38 AM by teenagewoodworker | 8 comments »

This is my first Miter Saw so i have nothing to compare it to but i think that it is a great Miter Saw. Just to start off this saw costs 140$ at Lowe’s and i bought mine without a laser. A wise man once told me that the blade does that cutting and not the laser, and he wants to see where the actual thing that’s doing the actual cutting is going to actually cut. Now back to the saw. it came ready to run right out of the box and all the different angles that i checked were right ...

Makita LS1013F 10-inch Compound Sliding Miter Saw Review

Makita LS1013F 10-inch Compound Sliding Miter Saw Review

07-18-2008 03:34 PM by Timber4fun | 8 comments »

Introduction – Over the last 14+ years, I’ve been using a 10-inch Craftsman Compound Miter Saw. It has served me well. In conjunction with the Craftsman Miter Saw, I had purchased a used Craftsman Radial Arm Saw. Unfortunately the Radial Arm saw had a wobble to it. It was not very accurate. I am guessing the previous owner damaged the saw mechanics. Since that time the sliding miter saw has emerged as a viable tool to replace the regular miter saw and the radial arm saw. With limited w...

I HAVE USED ONE OF THESE SAWS FOR 4 YEARS. IT IS ONE OF THE VERY BEST. IT WAS RATED THE BEST 10 INCH SAW FOR 3 YEARS STRAIGHT. THIS YEAR THERE IS A SAW THAT WAS RATED HIGHER BUT IT COST 1200.00. SO, THIS YEAR ..08.. IT IS RATED THE BEST SAW FOR THE MONEY. I BELEIVE THIS SAW CAN BE SERVICED AT 2 DIFFERENT LOCATIONS HERE IN THE USA. THE SAW BLADE IS ALSO TOPS. IN A SHOP SITUATION YOU MAY WANT ONE SAW FOR ROUGH LUMBER AND ANOTHER FOR FINISH WORK.

Great accessory for the shop

Great accessory for the shop

I often make furniture for my home and family. I have a larger miter saw but it is too big and heavy to easily move around and I have a small shop space to deal with. I had an old 8-1/4 Delta miter saw that died after 20 years of faithful service that I would often pull out to use, instead of the 12 incher. I missed that little guy and saw the Craftsman 7-1/4 sliding miter on sale for 99.00. It is usually about 169.00. The small blade is fine for one inch material that I usually use and it wi...

Cheap, but works very well

Cheap, but works very well

I bought this miter saw about 4 or 5 years ago. It was my second major tool purchase. The first was my $100 Delta table saw. Since then, I’ve used this saw for almost every project I’ve worked on. I’m a hobbyist, so it’s not like I use this everyday though. I am still using the stock blade on it, and it does cut very roughly. I have been meaning to replace that blade with something better soon. It has never broken down and when I set the angles, it doesnR...
