DEWALT DWS779 12 inch Sliding Compound Miter Saw Review

DEWALT DWS779 12″ Sliding Compound Miter Saw


DEWALT DWS779 is a 12 inch diameter- compact size, solid, precise, sliding type, corded compound miter saw, with up to 3,800 rpm rotating speed of its 15 amp motor that is designed to last you a long time and with more power, as well as two horizontal steel rails, an advanced clamping mechanism, linear ball bearings, a machined base fence and an accurate miter system. It is suitable for a variety of cutting tasks and can cut up to 2 x 12 dimensional lumber at 45 degree angle and 2 x 16 at 90 degrees thanks to the unique back fence design and you can do crown molding up to 7.5 inches nested with the tall sliding fences and up to 6.75 inch base molding vertically against the fence and is able to move out to do proper bevel cuts. You will not need to worry about how much dust comes out when doing your cuts as this model comes with a very useful dust collection feature that will get more than three-quarters of the dust, which is pretty good for a built-in system. You will see metric system used on the other side of the angle indicator, so please note that one inch is equal to 2.54 cm.


This great yellow and black sliding compound miter saw weighs 67 pounds, has a 12 inch and has the measurements of 18.8 x 33 x 23.75 inches, so it is more compact than you may think but rather heavy duty and stays in place and solid during the operation. In the box you will find the miter saw, carbide blade, blade wrench (keyed blade change on this model) and a user manual to help you operate the saw if you are not very familiar with such devices. The fact that miter can be moved 50 degrees to the left and 60 degrees to the right obviously enhances the capacity to carry out different types of cutting tasks, and with great precision thanks to the stainless steel miter detent plate that can be adjusted with ten positive stops- precise miter angles with detent override. Dewalt DWS779 is a UL listed product and offered with a three-year limited warranty including one-year free service contract and a 90-day return policy, by the manufacturer- Dewalt, that we think is more than good enough proof of the sturdy build, durability and quality of Dewalt Saw (you get similar terms of warranty in all Dewalt products).
