    Editorial Review

    The heart of any table saw is the fence, and DeWalt's smooth-sliding, unique double-cam action fence locks down tight and always travels parallel to the blade. The fence face shifts forward, too, giving you the option--if a cut requires it--of extra fence area in front of the blade. The fence can also drop flush to the table for ripping laminates.

    In fact, this saw is riddled with great, user-friendly features. There's an oversize, left-side on/off switch that lets you bump the saw off with your knee if you run into trouble while making a cut. It's exactly this sort of attention to detail that wins a lot of people over to DeWalt products. The blade-elevation crank is also set lower on this saw than most, so there's plenty of hand clearance for making blade height adjustments. Again, this might seem like a minor touch until you think about how frustrating it is to bang your knuckles on a table bottom every time you want to change the blade height. This table's sturdy, metal bevel scale is a nice touch, too; it's easy to read and much burlier than the mere stickers found on a lot of other saws. The saw's inboard 1-3/4-horsepower induction motor is quiet, cuts down on vibration, and makes this saw considerably more space-efficient than outboard motor saws, a feature you'll appreciate if you work in a small shop or have to take your saw through doorways. And at 254 pounds, this saw's got plenty of heft, a big cast-iron trunnion, and a sturdy steel base. There's also an integrated dust port if you want to hook the saw up to a dust collector. --Jon Groebner ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I studied a long time before buying this saw...
    My woodworking hobby outgrew my starter saw a few years ago, but circumstances did not allow me to buy a new saw until this year. Since I really wanted to take my time with this decision, I studied the market, put my hands on every saw I could, and read everything I could find on the web about table saw features. Since I work in a library, I also had access to every table saw review in most of the woodworking magazines.

    Eventually I came up with the following criteria:

    - I have a one car garage for a workshop, so space was a big issue. I was only looking at saws with 30" capacity to the right of the blade. I also limited my search to saws that could be pushed flat against a wall if need be. This left only hybrids and cabinet saws to consider.

    - I wanted the most powerful motor I could get without having to switch to 240 volts, yet have the option to rewire the saw for 240v later if I so choose (thus eliminating 3hp saws).

    - I wanted a solid fence that was accurate and DID NOT DEFLECT when locked down.

    - I wanted some decent dust collection abilities.

    - I wanted a quieter saw with less vibration than my old Delta contractor's saw.

    - I wanted to spend less than $1000 to get the saw, yet have lots of options for upgrading/outfitting later.

    Eventually I chose the DeWalt 746, and here are my observations:

    The saw package arrived in relatively undamaged crating (seven days after I ordered it from Amazon), and the saw was in perfect condition. Here's a tip - I ordered this saw over the phone and was given the option to pay $25 to have the saw delivered on the ground in my shop - well worth it! Assembly was not too bad (3 hrs), but the manual could have been a bit better. In my mind it was a bit too small and the illustrations corresponding to each step of assembly were not always on the same page! This saw is heavy and the cabinet/stand is very stiff and strong. I feel that the base of this saw is a much better design than the open stand of my old Delta. The saw also runs very smoothly - it is A LOT quieter than my last saw and vibration is at a minimum. The motor is about as powerful as you can get while running 120v without popping breakers left and right (which I have read is a common problem with the 2hp motors running 120v). I have not had any problems ripping 8/4 white oak with a good sharp blade... Speaking of blades, the one that came with this saw is inferior. I will keep it just for those instances where I want to cut treated lumber for outside projects or some other such task not requiring precision or smooth cuts. I have always wanted a Biesenmeyer fence, but I read good things about the fence on this saw and was eager to try it for myself. I am pleased to say that it is a very sturdy (and heavy) fence with some ingenious features. Most importantly this fence operates very smoothly, it does not deflect when locked down, it was easy to adjust square to the miter slot and blade, and zeroing the fence scale could not have been easier. I did have to fuss with it a bit to get the fence face set 90 degree to the table, but once I got it there it seems to hold the setting well. Dust collection on this saw is absolutely excellent. I hooked up my Fein Turbo II vacuum and basically no significant sawdust escapes. I couldn't be happier in that department. As for safety features, I like splitters and hate blade guards so I was pleased to find that the splitter/blade guard on this saw is able to be separated (I did just that). The splitter is easily adjustable and works well.

    As far as downsides go... Well, as I mentioned earlier the assembly manual could have been way better and the blade that came with the saw is junk. Also (and I read this several places ahead of time) the table is not absolutely flat. Using a straightedge I found a couple of hollows in the surface. I don't think they are significant enough to throw off the accuracy of what I am doing with this saw, but be forwarned that if you use a tablesaw to cut something more intricate than tenons you may have a problem with this. Unlike other reviewers I didn't have too much of a problem with the steel extension wings that came with this saw. When installed properly are they perfectly level to the main table? Yes. Are they perfectly flat? No, but acceptible for what they are. I wanted a good saw that could be upgraded and these are good enough for temporary use. In fact there are a host of great accessories/upgrades available for this saw. I already ordered a cast iron router table wing (made by Bench Dog) and soon I plan to order the DeWalt cast iron wing for the other side of the saw.

    When it comes down to it, I am very pleased with this saw. The features all met or exceeded my personal needs. This is important, because I have no doubt I could have gotten a saw that performed nearly as well for a lot less money, but it would have failed to meet one or more of MY criteria. As for the price - I bought mine at a time when the saw was on sale and the mobile base was included (see my separate review of the mobile base). The sale price coupled with Amazon's ongoing deal of 25 dollars off any order over 199 gave me this saw at more than a seventy dollar discount. If your needs are similar to mine, then take a close look at this saw. I highly recommend it!

    4-0 out of 5 stars good saw for the money
    I have had this saw for about 18 months now, and am pretty
    satisfied with it.

    Plusses: everything worked out of the box; solid saw, a lot
    better than a portable; blade aligned with miter slots; has
    worked solidly for 18 months.

    Minuses: the fence was not perpendicular to the table (vertical)
    and needed shimming; I think the fence is pretty accurate, but
    it doesn't lend itself to sacrificial add-ons or using the
    back (right) side of the fence; the 2 1/4 inch dust collection
    port is "fair" at best; the included miter gauge is useless;
    the stamped metal wings are cheesy; the motor is not strong
    enough to push a blade that isn't pretty sharp through thicker
    woods; the splitter is ok but is a *pain* to install and take off.

    All in all, this sits right in the middle between a portable
    and a good Unisaw.I think you get your money's worth, but
    this is not a *great* product, i.e. where you get more than
    what you paid for.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Setup of DeWalt's DW746 Table Saw Can Be Frustrating
    I have just spent about 15 hours setting up the DeWalt DW746 table saw, and I still can't use it.The On-Off Switch is defective; the motor starts up regardless of which position the switch is in--not exactly safe.I called DeWalt's help line but received a recorded message that help is available only 8-5 M-F, so I'll have to wait out the weekend. The saw has been set up in my basement workshop for 4 days and so far I've had to clean up about 1/4 cup of oil which has leaked from the motor. I don't know if this means the motor is defective; hopefully the DeWalt help line will clarify what is going on.
    I took another owner's advice and bought the two heavy duty cast iron extension tables.One of the tables arrived with dings along the edge which mates with the main table; this edge also seems to be slightly bowed, being high in the middle and low at the edges.
    Adjusting the saw blade to 0 and 90 degree bevel angles is straightforward with easily accessible adjustment screws located conveniently in the miter slots. However, adjusting the fence is something else.To square the fence to the table top, you must loosen three torx (T50) screws and make the adjustment.When finished, you are instructed to tighten the three torx screws.In the next setup step, setting the fence parallel to the blade, you are instructed to loosen two of the screws (which you just tightened) and to loosen the third screw just enough to allow setting the fence parallel.Unless you are very lucky, you are going to have to repeat this process several times in order to get everything square and parallel, because every time you get one adjustment right, it seems to throw off the other.
    I agree with other reviewers that the supplied stamped left & right support tables are junk.Spend the extra money and get the heavy duty cast iron side tables.The supplied miter gauge is also a piece of junk, as are the arbor wrenches for changing blades.
    Prepare to lay out even more money for a good combination or crosscut saw blade, because the one supplied with this saw is a ripping blade suitable only for "occasional cross cuts."
    If you get the mobile base, assemble and install it as one of the first steps:don't wait until last, because this saw is awfully heavy to lift, especially with the heavy duty extension table attached.
    All in all, I have high hopes for this saw--the main table seems sturdy enough, and the supplied motor is a high quality two capacitor induction type which should give years of faithful service. The defective On-Off switch is a big disappointment but I hope DeWalt's help epresentative will solve this to mutual satisfaction. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    In recent years, rotary cutout tools have soared in popularity, due mainly to a series of television infomercials promoting one brand. Though it doesn't receive the TV airplay of its main competitor, this DeWalt model uses a durable 5 amp motor--the most powerful motor yet in a cutout tool--making it a great tool for professional drywallers, electricians, and carpenters. To help battle dust infiltration, the tool features a sealed motor and switch, a must for any serious drywall tool. It also sports a quick-and-easy, tool-free bit-changing system and comes with both 1/8 and 1/4 inch collets. We really like the bump-off switch for quick tool shutdown and the simple and effective tool-free depth adjustments. Like other rotary cutout tools, this one uses spiral cutting bits, which work equally well plunging into a cut as they do laterally. In our test we found the DeWalt to be smooth running with low vibration. We had no problem plunging and cutting through 1-1/2 inches of solid birch, whizzing through drywall, and tearing through tile. In fact, this tool has more power than you'd expect from something of its size, and if you aren't paying attention, it can get away from you--an easier to live with problem than lack of power. Some extraordinary claims have been made about rotary cutout tools, and while DeWalt's cutout tool is as versatile as any we've tried, and a bit more powerful than most, it's most effective at what it was designed for--quick cutouts in drywall, tile, and plywood. --Brian Trinen ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Dewalt got this one just right
    This is a wonderful cut-out tool.It cuts through drywall with ease and makes a very smooth cut.You need to use both hands as it is very powerful but I haven't had any trouble keeping a straight line so far.

    Like any rotary cut-out tool, it breaks bits!Keep a good supply handy and happy cutting.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars for lots of power
    I have owned a roto-zip and the dremmel.They just don't have the power of this DeWalt.The circle cutter option is very handy and really does a nice job. If you are hanging drywall this of course is a must.For recessed lighting it really makes things easy.Put your drywall in place, start somwhere on the inside of the light.Work your way out to the edge, carefully work your way over the outside and then follow the outside of the light all the way around.The can will pop through and you will have a perfect cut.This is a great tool.

    5-0 out of 5 stars DeWalt's HD CutOut Tool is G-R-R-R-EAT!!
    A crew of two just finished installing several roomsful of sheetrock for us, using the DeWalt HD CutOut Tool to cut holes for outlet boxes, switch boxes, and the like.The tool worked beautifully (of course this guy was a pro, does this every day, but the tool would be great in the hands of an amateur as well), zipping sround squares and rectangles in no time.Fun to wa tch, too -- it really Zipped around.This is a great price, as well.I'll buy one as soon as I can. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best investment ever made
    I currently owned and used my Dewalt 14v Cordless drill 983 model.I used this drill a lot when it comes to drilling wood screws/lag screws and there were times when this drill will twist.Although it has a torque setting it's not always consistent. Now ever since I bought the DW056 Impact driver it's a wonderful tool, you don't need to mess with the torque setting and the twisting is completely gone.If you're the type who likes drilling screws into wood or metal this is the tool for you.I'm currently using this driver more than I use the drill when it comes to drilling screws.It's worth the investment!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Powerful, good batteries, cannot easily replace brushes
    Overall this is a very powerful impact driver and stacks up well against other on the market.

    Comfort and ergonomics:
    The 90 degree angle is not as comfortable as other angled drivers from Makita, Hitachi and Bosch, although if you do a lot of fastener driving at shoulder level and above (HVAC and cabinet installs) the DeWalt could actually be more comfortable (check out how your wrist angles as you raise it up to shoulder level and beyond).The rubberized grip is very comfortable and it extends to the back of the tool for two handed impact driving.The soft grip covers the front of the handle (below the trigger) too which is good, since typically there is a ridge which joins the two plastic halves of the tools that gives you blisters during extended use.I think DeWalt has put significant thoughts on the user comfort here.

    Batteries:
    I believe XRP packs are 2.4Ah which is about the top end of Ni-Cd technology.Run time is good and the diagnostic chrager is on-par with other cordless tools.The automatic 'tune-up' mode is a bit of a glorified marketing thing since this is essentially trickle charging, which is done by almost any battery chragers after a fast-charge cycle.This basically tops-up the batteries by passing a small current over 8-10 hours, and is no different whatsoever to the old dumb chargers that perform overnight charging.Have to give DeWalt credit for creative marketing here.

    Issues:
    No bit holder, you'd think with such a large surface area on top of the large 18V battery they would put in a bit holder.There is also no way for easy replacement of motor brushes, this is a feature that is available on every impact driver from other manufacturers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars this impact is great
    If you drive alot of screws get a impact they are great. I only use my cordless drill to drill holes now. You can't go wrong with the impact driver. Why didn't I buy this sooner? ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    From the moment you get your hands on it, you'll appreciate thequality of this router. The handles offer total comfort and confidenceas you guide this 11-1/4-pound beauty around. Its soft start means nojerking, even when you start it at its peak speed of 22,000 rpm (itsbottom range is 8,000 rpm). The 15 amp motor is quieter than you'dexpect in a router this size, and the rack-and-pinion depth adjustmentDeWalt is known and loved for comes equipped with a magnified scale anda micro fine-adjustment knob. The plunge mechanism is smooth assilk--better than on routers twice the price--and it would serveperfectly in a table or for freehand work. The 625 comes with 1/2- and1/4-inch collets, and when it's time to change the bit, you'll reallyappreciate the spindle-lock button; it's a big square with a fingerdepression, unlike most other routers that offer either two wrenches towrestle with or a small, sharp spindle-lock pin that leaves a red dentin your finger. Other nice features: one side of the base is roundedand one is flat, and it comes with a dust-extraction adapter. Thispiece of machinery truly is as close to flawless as a router can get.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Didn't buy it
    I was looking for a router for my router table.I looked at the DW at a tool store, and was not all that impressed.I ended up buying a Milwaukee 3.5 hp fixed base router, and could not be happier.Handling both at the same time left little choice in my mind.The Milwaukee is simply a lot better, and worth the extra $20.I've had the Milwaukee over a year, and I'm glad I bought it.It is pure quality.It is also made in the US.The DW is made in Taiwan.The difference in quality is dramitic.I must say, however, that it is light years better than a Hitachi.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Like a rock
    I have owned this unit since 1999 and have used it strictly under a table.I consider myself an intermediate level woodworker, usually spending 4-6 hours per week in my shop, much of that time at the router table.I have never had an issue with this machine.I have used it to route anything from small parts with the 1/4 inch collet to making raised panel doors with a 3.5 inch rail and stile bits.The machine with its soft start and electronic speed control has never faulted on any type of cut. The one-wrench quick change collet feature is nice as well, seeing as how I have to remove the router from under the table to change bits.The fine depth adjuster is another must if you plan on mounting it to a table.The adjustment mechanism is very smooth and easy to operate.If I had any complaint at all, it would be the ability to drop this unit into a router lift.There are not a lot of choices when it comes to accomodating this machine.However to get around that, I recently upgraded my old table to a Jessem Mast-R-Lift Excel with a PC 7518.I am convinced though that my reliable DW625 will still continue to get plenty of use in the shop.You cannot go wrong with this router.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Tried to buy this tool
    i attempted to buy this router from amazon but I've got a nice story to tell you.I applied for and received amazon's credit card.It carries a $30.00 discount on my first purchase.I decided on the DeWalt 625 which carries a $ 25.00 discount.going through the checkout process I entered the DeWalt promo code DWLTCT4334Q4.The final page before "placing order" pops up only showing the $30.00 discount.After trying several more times I got disgusted and wrote to amazon's computer because I seriously doubt that there are any living, breathing, beings on theother end.I received a standard reply, "computer error" or "read the promo restrictions."Just for the heck of it I went through all the motions of placing the order on a neighbors account and sure enough at checkout the DeWalt discount appeared, not my $30.00 credit card offer because I didn't use my account.So we know that amazon honors the promo offer.I wrote the amazon computer a second time only to receivethe exact reply, verbatum.I know I will never get in touch with a real person at amazon, hence my amazon and "tool crib" days are history.I will pay the state tax and slightly higher price and buy locally.At least if I'm getting a snow job the salesman will be looking at me and he will be a living, breathing person. ...

    Editorial Review

    These days, almost all professionals and do-it-yourselfers rely on a cordless drill/driver--and for good reason. Take the DeWalt 14.4-volt 3/8-inch cordless compact drill/driver kit. It features a 3/8-inch keyless ratcheting chuck, two gear settings (low torque/high speed and high torque/low speed), and a variable speed trigger switch with electric brake. Powered by a DeWalt-built Series 3000 motor, the unit delivers 350 in./lbs. of maximum torque and speeds of 0-400 and 0-1,400 rpm. An 18-position clutch makes it easy to match the drill's torque setting to the precise application for even better results. Even with all its power, the DeWalt drill/driver is still comfortable to hold and offers good overall control. An all-metal 5-5-5 planetary gear transmission and solid construction throughout help to ensure a longer tool life, another definite plus for this hard-working performer.--Carl Thress ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good solid light weight drill
    I bought this drill at lowes for $75.00 with 2 batteries and case. At 4.2 lbs it feels like a feather compared to my monster 18v Bosch hammerdrill(6.7 lb). It seems to have all of the power I need,and it can handle the bigger bits.It is a real arm
    saver.
    Dewalts new compact series drill has more power than the 928,but also weighs several ounces more. The 928 is the most comfortable drill I have ever used.
    I have found that the 928 has several limitations.
    1. Limited runtime, while the 928 can use the big bits,it can't drill nearly as many holes as my 18v Bosch,this would probably apply to most 14.4v drills.
    2. Two sleve chuck,Single sleeve is better.
    3. Poor finish, The seam between the two body halves, are poorly finished,and are irratating in the handle area. I have noticed this on many of Dewalts Mexican made tools.My bosch on the on the other hand the body is perfectly finished.
    All in all,it is a fine drill,if you can get one at a good price(like I did). Remember,The current drill goes for about $170.00 in most stores,I only paid $75.00. I have learned that when at home depot or lowes,always to check the return rack.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Upgrade
    This is a replacement for my old 9.6V.Did not want to go up in voltage because of the balance and wieght of my 9.6V.Wrong answer.
    The DW928 is well balanced and the weight is not noticable.The speed switch works easily. Which is a great improvement in the cordless line. Others i have looked at were hard to move.Many more clutch settings over my old one.
    Battery life is unreal.Really gave it a workout.Good Job DeWalt
    I would highly recommend this drill if 14 Volt is your game.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a very powerful drill!
    When I began looking around for a replacement for my 9.6v DeWalt cordless drill, I assumed I would be buying a 12v DeWalt.My 9.6v almost always had the power to do what I asked of it, so 12v seemed the next logical step.Then I found this 14.4v drill for an incredible price at a day-after-Thanksgiving sale (Lowes).In fact, the 99 bucks I paid for this drill is less that what I paid for my 9.6v 8+ years ago!

    After using this drill on a couple of projects I can say two things with all honesty.First of all this drill is not overly heavy (I was worried about that), and second, it has power to spare.I suspect that the torque this drill provides is overkill for driving screws in most applications - afterall I was happy with the screw driving abilities of my 9.6v.However, it is very nice to have that torque when you are drilling through wood with big bits.

    Basically, this drill is a very strong performer.The charger is well made, I have had no problems with it or the batteries, and the case is well made.If you have need for this kind of power or you find a good deal like I did, I highly recommend that you make this purchase! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    DeWalt's high-torque framing saw is a good option for people who prefer the torque of a traditional worm drive saw but don't have time (or memory) for the regular oiling worm drives require. It has a 15 amp motor that provides 2,000 watts of output power. The bevel and depth-of-cut gauges cannot be recalibrated, so after taking a few hard jolts users may want to rely on a tape and secondary bevel gauge for accuracy. That said, although the base is narrow, it's one of the toughest bases we've seen and it isn't likely to warp easily. While its design is similar to that of a worm drive saw, the gearing is situated at an angle to the base, keeping the handle closer to the blade and making for better balance and control than what most worm drives offer. The shaft lock button is on the opposite side of the saw from the blade, so blade changes require some awkward hand positioning to use the wrench while holding the button--not an ideal situation, but not a huge inconvenience either. We appreciate the easy external brush access on this tool, which can eliminate a trip to the repair shop as the saw ages. We also like the built-in rafter hook, a bonus feature not found on other circular saws. This DeWalt has only been on the market for three years, so while the hypoid gearing lets it provide the same level of torque as a worm drive saw, it remains to be seen whether it has the long life span we've come to expect from our old worm drives. We think it's a great saw for people looking for a burly circular saw at a reasonable price. --Brian Trinen ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!What a saw!
    I am a carpenter and have owned a lot of different circular saws throughout the years.This saw is by far the best one in my arsenal.The power and speed that it plows through any stock that I am cutting is just amazing.Even on angle cuts or when the stock is wet, this saw just plows right through it where other saws bog down.And being right handed, I now have an excellent view of the cutting surface.This saw is now the only one that goes to the job with me.I won't be without it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Keep coming back to this saw.
    I have had this saw for 2 years now. Bought it refurbished cause didn't know if I would like it. I bought several saws since this one. But I always find myself looking for this saw. The hook comes in handy when I am cutting truss tails. And when I am cutting stair stringers I just hang it on my saw horses. That way I don't have to bend over to get it or have it laying on my work in the way. Very quiet and powerful. Just hold the blade away from your work when you first start, it likes to jump. This saw mowes through treated lumber. Micro lambs are cake for it. I have 10 saws and this one is my favorite still. My dad has been building for over 20 years and he told me not to buy a Hypoid cause of the weight. This thing only weighs about 2 or 3 lbs more then most regular circular saws.
    My dad used it on one of my jobs and then I always found him sneaking off with it. It was his favorite saw on my site. I found myself fighting with him over it a couple times. Great saw would buy again.

    I am a Framing contractor and have owned four of these saws. They are light-wieght,comfortable and come with a great rafter hook. The only drawback is that I don't feel they are quite as durable as my skill saws. That said, I will still keep purchasing the DeWalt, simply because I like the feel. I give it four stars, maybe four and a half. ... Read more

    I have 8 diffrent dewalt tool that I use, no abuse every day. Serveral of my batteries are 4 years old and are just starting to not hold a charge. They get left in the truck in the winter.
    I just use them in the flashlight. For just a little more than the price of two batteries, you can get a new drill charger and batteries. batteries weak hows the tool?

    is to high.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Adequate Torque But Too Damn Heavy
    I'm a contractor. I lift heavy things all day long, so I'm no 90lb weakling. But, I have to admit, I sold this tool after three months because I found it too heavy and cumbersome for all day use. The torque was adequate, but I find my 12v Porter Cable drill equally up to the task at a fraction of the weight. (Unfortunately, the chuck on the P/C drills are a total piece of crap, which is a whole other story!) Oh, this drill is fine for driving a few screws here and there, or the occasional heavy duty drilling tasks. But due to their weight and size, I now believe 18v drills in general are not versatile enough for professionals to use on a full day-to-day basis. In fact, many other contractors and builders I know have also dumped their 18v+ drills for lighter, smaller 12v and even 9.6v models. Plus, whenever I need a little extra power, I just pull out my 1/2" Milwaukee Hammer Drill, plug it in, and bombs away!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Broke right after warranty expired...
    I have owned this DeWalt "18 Volt XRP 1/2" Heavy Duty Adjustable Clutch Drill" for barely over 1 year now.I was using a 1" wood bit to drill holes to run cable in my home, and at the end of my project, the drill gave out.The drill motor spins, but it will not engage the bit and gives a racheting sound when run forward or reverse.
    This has been a very good drill that I would otherwise rave about, but it died just after the warranty expired, leaving me with a $200 drill that may not be worth fixing.On a better note, DeWalt improved their warranties after 1/2004 to be 3 years instead of 1.But for me, I can only give it 3 stars since it broke JUST AFTER the 1 year warranty.I am disgusted right now & will have to consider a different company (Bosch) if I cannot get this fixed under warranty.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Poor quality control!
    I've bought the drill through a hardware store. The first one got a stuck speed gear as described by other reviewers. So I exchanged for a second one. The second drill has excessive sparks in the motor and I returned it without hesitation. I'm going to try the Milwaukee as suggested by others. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice, but could be improved
    I tried three David White Mark 4 laser devices before I bought the DeWalt.Two of the Mark 4's had indistinct oval blobs instead of sharp dots, the third actually had a broken window.The dot produced by the DeWalt DW082K is far superior.It has a small cross with a sharp, bright dot in the center.It works great, but could use some improvement in the dampening system.A slight movement of the unit causes the beam to deflect wildly for several seconds before completely stopping.I marked spots on the floor and ceiling as indicated by the laser dots.I then rotated the DW082K in 90 degree increments for the full 360 degrees.Each time, the laser dots exactly covered the marked spots.I concluded that it is very accurate, at least for my use.

    Editorial Review

    A drill/driver is a great tool, but not for every application, unless of course you consider stripped screws part of the charm of doing it yourself. Some jobs simply need the added muscle only an impact driver can provide, and the 14.4-volt cordless DeWalt DW054K-2 is one impact driver worth a look. At first glance, the DeWalt driver looks a little weak. After all, it measures only 6-1/2 inches and weighs just 4.1 pounds. But don't let appearances fool you. Under that slight exterior beats the heart of a champ. The driver produces an amazing 1,150 in./lbs. of maximum torque, making it ideal for even the toughest jobs and the tightest applications, where comparable drivers simply couldn't reach. The unit features an all-metal transmission, a durable magnesium gear case and an all-metal quick release chuck that accepts 1/4-inch hex shank bits. A textured, anti-slip comfort grip provides ultimate comfort and stability. A specially designed impacting mechanism reduces kickback -- and fatigue. And a variable-speed trigger switch with electric brake means better overall control.--Carl Thress ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars better than Makita 12v for my use
    I tried a 12v Makita impact driver after reading the reviews.It was a revelation, but the angled handle was awkward and a little painful to use at arm's length. The DeWalt handle is 90 degrees to the motor and is easier to use for me.The Dewalt trigger isn't quite as sensitive as the Makita, but it's very good.The 1150 inch-pounds (vs 867 for Makita 12v) seems just right....it spins longer at high speed before the impact starts, so long screws drive quite a bit quicker.The Makita 12v is definitely more controllable and has a the ultimate variable trigger, but I can drive both 6 x 3/4" wood screws in cabinet hinges and sink 4" deck screws out of sight in anything with the DeWalt.It does the formerly impossible.I smile every time pick it up.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The tool man
    Well, I'm a hobbiest, in fact, my neighbor, a real mountain man who calls me a sissyman since unlike him, who was actually born with a hammer and chisel in hand, I am in the process of learning the craft of wood work. I would like to at least imagine with great success (I was a metal worker before). I've never been able to cut a straight line or drill a hole without travel.

    This drill has been wonderful for me. In fact, I've purchased the 18v 5.XX inche circular as well as the 18V Jig and a mitre saw. When I was younger, I often purchased and used Black & Decker. I found that for a newcomer to wood working these other tools were quite clumsy. The Dewalt tools on the other hand, I would imagine are definately the top of the line for people like me. This drill is heavy enough to help hold the bit still without travel and has enough power to cut the most stubborn surfaces.

    Recently while using a rather large hole saw to cut an openning in the back of a set of shelves for cabling, I was using my 12V Dewalt and the hole saw regularly got caught and the drill nearly busted my wrist. When I broke out this drill, although the jam could still occur, the torque let the bit keep moving without missing a beat.

    Also, I no longer use a stone cutter to break bricks. Recently, I drilled approximately 500 holes in 4 inche thick bricks and using the back side of my axe snapped them in peices. Later I moved on to drilling holes into the concrete foundation of my house for mounting my new deck. The hammer drill really shined. I can't wait until someone else lets me drill into their house as well :)

    I highly recommend this tool for people like myself that have spent so much time in front of computers that we can no longer use a pen and drawing a straight line without an orthagonal feature is unheard of. Don't hesitate to buy this monster (Unless the 12v is preferable since it's easier to hide from your wife).

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy for hammerdrill feature
    This was a real disappointment to a loyal DeWalt user. This is nowhere near what you are looking for if you are going to be drilling into masonry, especially concrete. And if you are not, why are you buying this instead of the drill/driver model (which I own and love)? The good: a great redesign of the keyless chuck. The bad: does not have the power for even the most basic work you'll do (drilling a 3/16" hole a couple inches into a tough concrete slab). I cut my teeth on a real heavy-duty hammer drill (worth at least twice the price, I admit), which I had to always borrow. Bought this DeWalt model, and went through several bits, cursing the bits. Worried, I went back and borrowed the real tool, stuck in one of the bits I'd been cursing, and...zip zip zip, right through the material. If you buy this thinking you're getting a heavy-duty hammerdrill, you will be disappointed. Unfortunately, a true heavy-duty hammerdrill is going to run you twice what this does. No free rides. I had to learn the hard way what the extra money buys you; hopefully I've saved you a lesson.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Drill and it's NOT defective
    I've owned this drill for 3 years.The drill and batteries have worked flawlessly.The clutch on this drill does work a little differently than on most drills.This drill is for heavy duty work and not for finesse work.If you are going to install cabinets then buy a 2 speed DeWALT model.Because of the 3 speeds the clutch is very tight on the first gear and gradually the scale of retention lessens as you go up in gears.For example:1st gear on clutch setting 1 will drive a screw into a 2X4.In 2nd gear it would take setting 5 and in 3rd you would be at about 10.DeWALT recommends that if you need a light touch, just increase to 2nd gear.You might ask, why would I want this drill?Lots of torque, speed and the hammerdrill function.Think of the gears and clutch like a 21 speed bike. Not only do you change the gears on the rear wheel but you change your torque with the large gears on the front set of gears too.More options for better overall performance.

    First lets talk about the speed.At 2000 RPM this drill is faster than most electric drills.I find that I use this high speed setting a great deal when drilling.Torque.Lots of torque for driving big bits through wood or other materials.2nd gear is great for driving wood screws fast.I built a 12x12 deck with 2x4s, driving all 300 screws in second gear and 2 batteries.What I really like is the hammerdrill function.This is used for drilling in cement or stucco.I haverecently used this to drill 4, 1/2 inch wide holes in our sidewalk to mount a mail box.It did a great job and the cement was 30 years old.Hard nasty stuff and this thing cut right through it.Or as fast as you can drill through cement. Use windex to keep the bit cool.The suds will pull the loose material out. I have also used it numerous times to drill into the walls around my house and into the cement in my garage.This is a tough drill and really takes a beating.Make sure when you are doing high torque jobs you attach the included extra handle or you will be spinning around like Wiley Coyote.

    If you own this drill you will almost remove any reason to own an electric drill.I only use my corded drill for mixing cement and drywall mud.This is a tough drill for tough jobs.Have fun. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Everything but the circular saw!
    My favorite tool out of this combo is the 18V drill. It is built to last and has some serious torque to it that comes in handy when you're slamming lag bolts through a 2X4 into concrete! But I also am impressed with all the other tools in the kit. The cordless reciprocating saw sees more action than my plug in saw simply because of the convenience of not having a get-caught-on-everything extention cord getting in my way. The flexible floodlight comes in handy when you need some light but don't have any hands left to hold a flashlight while you're working. It's bright and can be set up in just about any position to illuminate your workspace. The convenience of having a wireless jigsaw comes in quite handy too, especially when you're cutting a lot of angles and curves... There's no wire getting in your cutting path! Now I get to the circular saw... It's got good power to it, but it definitely doesn't see as much action as my plug-in circular saw. Sure it'll cut a 5/8" sheet of plywood, but it splinters the wood and doesn't rip through as fast as a good old plug-in circular saw. If there's something small to cut that doesn't necessarily need a clean cut (free of splinters), then this saw will do, but it simply doesn't cut clean enough for my tastes. Back panels on lower kitchen cabinets could be cut with this saw, but when it comes to making a straight cut at length, you really are better off using a plug-in circular. So if you are looking for a combo kit, I'd recommend getting one with everything this kit has but without the circular saw! Save your money on that portion of the kit and buy a DeWalt plug-in to finish off your combo... Oh, and the 18V battery lasts a good long time and will get you through most projects without a recharge!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best cordless tools in the market - bar none
    My partner and I are very busy general contractors in Los Angeles County, CA. Our company specializes in repair and renovation. Recently we switched from another brand to "test" the Dewalt products. We purchased two box sets. We literally beat the He** out these tools. We abused them. They seemed to enjoy it. The drill damn near broke my wrist when I decided to try it out as a torque wrench. The saw cuts double stack 5/8 ply (thats two sheets) like paper, over and over.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best cordless tools in the market - bar none
    My partner and I are very busy general contractors in Los Angeles County, CA. Our company specializes in repair and renovation. Recently we switched from another brand to "test" the Dewalt products. We purchased two box sets. We literally beat the He** out these tools. We abused them. They seemed to enjoy it. The drill damn near broke my wrist when I decided to try it out as a torque wrench. The saw cuts double stack 5/8 ply (thats two sheets) like paper, over and over. The batteries have unbelievable life (we burn them non-stop). No panzy set down, we deliberately drop/toss the tools from the knee. They are professional grade, no-nonsense machines.

    Editorial Review

    If you're looking for a circular saw that's convenient and easyto use above all else, DeWalt's 8-volt, 6-1/2-inch circular model is asmart choice. This saw features an alloy steel base plate, a beveladjustment that goes to 50 degrees and can be recalibrated, and adepth-of-cut adjustment that reaches all the way to the blade. Iteasily cuts two-by material at a 45-degree bevel in a single pass, andhas a left-side blade that adds visibility. We especially liked theblade-changing mechanism--the shaft-lock button is easy to find anddepress, and the hex key stores on the body of the saw, making theblade easy to switch out and replace. This model also has a powerfulfan-cooled motor with replaceable brushes that reach 3,700 rpm. Theresult is a saw that can cut 35 feet per minute of 1/2-inch plywood. Itweighs only 8.4 pounds, and--without a cord to hassle with--you'll findthat nothing is easier to haul around on a job site. A cordless saw isa serious timesaver, especially for smaller jobs, when dealing with acord can be a real hassle. This kit comes with a T-guide; a 16-tooth,6-1/2-inch blade; and a plastic carrying case. --Jonathon Tudor ... Read more

    • One-year warranty

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this saw!
    I bought this saw to cut down sheets of plywood before bringing them into the bsmt where there is a table saw.I've had no problem with the battery and love the freedom of throwing it into the back of a vehicle in case wood at the lumberyard is too long.It's weight makes it easy to handle and while I can see an extra battery might be nice, it's been a joy to use.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good worker.
    I have been cutting 2x8s and it does a great job.Especially nice is being able to cut thru the 2*8 at a 45 angel. The blade lock makes changing the blade easy.

    The safety latch seems a bit awkward.One has to push the button in before pulling the trigger.For me,the button is in the wrong place and would be easier to push down rather than in. But this is a minor problem.

    I haven't used the saw enough to stress test the battery

    4-0 out of 5 stars Cordless isn't acceptable for occassional use
    The saw is well made and easy to use except for the trigger.I find it difficult to press the safety and the trigger at the same time.Especially when cutting at an odd angle.

    I have used it for framing and plywood.The guide is very easy to use and keeps a good straight line.It won't cut completely through a 2x4 at 45 degrees so you'll have to flip the board over and cut from the other side.

    However, this is not a saw that is acceptable for occassional use.If the battery is not properly discharged and recharged it will quickly become a doorstop.Ask yourself how often you are really going to use the saw.If it isn't at least once a month then a corded saw would be cheaper.Otherwise you'll be replacing the battery. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Impressed
    This tool really amazed me. I thought it would be a toy but to my suprise it could handle just about any task.When it was broken by another worker, in a pinch I bought a Milwaukee.Talk about a joke. No battery life.No power to speak of.Milwaukee should stick to making corded tools because they will never compare with the DeWalt.I got a quick $250.00 lesson with the Milwaukee and ordered another DeWalt.Now to find someone who will take the Milwaukee.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent power for a cordless.
    Another reviewer mentioned that he only got 90 to 120 seconds of cutting time with his saw.I got much better performance.Right after pulling it out of the box, the included battery needed charging, so I borrowed a 5 year old, partially discharged 18 volt battery from our Dewalt cordless drill and proceeded to cut away 14: 2x6 roof rafters, 3: 2x8 rafters, the soffit and fascia, then a few 4" diameter saplings and various branches from nearby maple trees.The battery was still going strong.With a sharp blade, this tool will melt through 2" lumber.It's seems to cut more quiclky than my old Milwaukee Sawsall, but it is not as smooth and vibration free as the new Makita reciprocating saw (which is AC).This is a great tool that will get far more use than just for demolition around our house.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Anothergood light duty saw
    Ahhh yes DeWalt has a cordless reciprocating saw.This tool is ideal for drywall, metal stud and thin steel cutting.It is perfect for the tool line up.Keyless clamp make blade changing easy and allow you to get right back to work.Cordless is convenience but not all powerfull.For heavy long jobs the corded dewalt and milwaukee reciprocating saws will get the job done.I give this 5 stars for light duty (drywall, metal and wood studs, thin steel, plywood etc.) but only 2.5 for long lasting work. ...

    Editorial Review

    DeWalt asked professional framers what they wanted in a nailer,and the result is this workhorse. It's light and comfortable in yourhand but packs the power to drive up to 3-1/2-inch nails, and becauseit's only about a foot tall, it lends itself beautifully to working intight spaces. Jams clear in a jiffy thanks to a hassle-freequick-release mechanism, and the dry fire lockout keeps the tool fromfiring when your magazine is almost empty, preventing internal damage.The bump-action trigger comes installed, but you'll receive thesequential action trigger, too. The best innovation of all is thetool-free depth adjustment--no more grappling with wrenches and messingwith air pressure. Action is smooth, the injection-molded rubber gripfeels strong and sure, and a reversible belt/rafter hook will keep itright where you need it. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect operation
    I purchased this nailer a couple of years ago because of the name.I own several other DeWalt tools and have always been very happy with them.This nailer has yet to let me down.I have noticed that the selection of full head nails at the local building supply warehouse is less than the clipped head nails.However Amazon seems to carry all I could ever want, so this has not been a problem.
    The only times the gun has jammed on me has been operator error.I had left a single nail in the magazine when adding a new stick of nails.The single nail slipped out of place and jammed.However it takes under a minute to remove the magazine, clear the jam, reassemble and reload.
    The safety by the trigger is the gun's only flaw.I have small hands and so do not mind it being so small, but someone with larger hands, especially wearing gloves may not be able to turn it.It also doesn't seem very robust.However I rarely use it, I prefer to disconnect the air hose as then I can be certain it will not fire.
    When I use 3 1/4" nails, I do find if the nail goes into a knot, I sometimes need to finish it off with a hammer.Other than that, I've not had a problem with the power of the gun

    2-0 out of 5 stars 51845 My thoughts
    I read the previous reviews and I got the impressoin that this nailer "could" do the job. Well I was wrong, this nailer went head to head with a bostitch N88ww nailer and I was crushed. The dewalt lacked the power to countersink 3 1/2 nails into some old pine. The best I could do is get a bearly flush head about 60 percent of the time. I tried adjusting everything I could to get the perfomance I expected from a dewalt tool. This nailer lasted about 30 minutes on site before it was back in the box ready to get shipped back.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Right Ammo!
    I have owned and used this fine air nailer for about 6 months, and it has functioned flawlessly so long as I behaved. If, as some of the other reviewers have claimed, you are having problems with double firing or jamming, take a good look at the ammo you are loading into your gun. My gun went bonkers with double firing for about 6 sticks of nails and then a hardcore jam of two 3.5" nails. The jam was so intense; it galled and peened the nails as one. After close inspection, it was discovered that the malfunction was caused by operator error.The gun was loaded with CLIPPED HEAD ammo instead of the required FULL ROUND HEAD ammo.After hand filing the rough shards of tainted metal from the firing chamber and a good cleaning, all systems were good to go.

    Bottom line: this nail gun is designed and built with first class components. As a matter of fact the gun is such a fine work of art that I believe that if it had existed in the year 33 A.D. the vile, debauchery of a mob would have used it to pin Jesus to the cross during the Passion of the Christ.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Terrible, with charger that comes with drill.
    I owned an old DeWalt drill that did not have the extended run batteries and apparently, a charger that kept them in shape. After owning this drill for several years, it, the batteries and charger were stolen. Based on the wonderful service from this old drill and its' batteries, I purchased a new drill w/XR batteries and charger.

    The batteries worked great when new, but quickly degenerated and were both dead in a little over a year. I wrote a letter of complaint to DeWalt and they replaced the whole thing. The replacement batteries also quickly degenerated and in less than a year one of the replacement batteries failed and a couple of months later the other one was completly dead.

    I suspect it is not the fault of the batteries. but the charger. On the old drill/charger, I could leave the battery in the charger and it would be ready to go when needed. When the new battery was left in the charger, it was always dead when I needed it.

    I imagine that if you used these in your job and charged and used them regularly they would be fine. but for a homeowner who goes long periods between use, these new bateries/charger just don't make the grade.

    I thought it interesting that the reviews that slammed these batteries were not rated as helpful, but the reviews that raved about them were rated as useful.

    I really like the drill, but it is totally worthless without functioning batteries.

    I will buy a new battery anyway, and the DeWalt tune-up charger. Maybe with this charger, it will work as well as the old one. I hope so, as 2 batteries and the charger cost more than the whole kit with case, drill, 2 batteries, and charger.

    If this works, (and I'm sure DeWalt knows whether it will) DeWalt should put the tune up charger in every kit they sell and junk their name destroying, and in my opinion defective standard charger.

    If it doesn't work, it is good bye DeWalt, and hello Porter Cable or Millwaukee.

    The only reason I gave this battery 2 stars instead of 1 is because I strongly suspect that the battery is fine, but the charger is junk.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Consistently Poor Battery Life
    For what these Dewalt Battery Packs cost, they should at least meet their rated life. We have never gotten the kind of battery life that the ratings would make you expect. And neither has anyone else that we know. We are switching to Porter Cable, Bosch, Rigid and Ryobi. For the Dewalt cordless that we have, we are going to try non-Dewalt replacements as they cannot be any worse and they are a heck of a lot cheaper.

    5-0 out of 5 stars New life for old drill
    So the DeWalt drill was getting a little old.It had served so long (about 8 years) and faithfully that it was tough to have to start considering replacements.I mean, what difference could a new battery makeSure the two original batteries only hold a charge for an hour or so, and only that long if it is light use.And yeah, I seem to remember that it used to be more powerful, but...How much difference can it make, and it costs almost half of a replacement drill!
    So - I tried the new battery anyway.Its like I got a new drill for [$$$]!The old drill is reborn. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Here’s huge cutting capacity in a surprising size. This 8-1/2 inch single-bevel miter saw really does cut a 3-inch post in a single pass, just like DeWalt says. And it’s also the only saw its size we’ve seen that will trim 3-1/2-inch crown molding vertically, because of DeWalt’s taller fence. With its smooth slide action, you’ll choose this over your table saw when it comes to cross cutting—-even a 12-inch board. It’s got all the features of the bigger, high-end saws, and then some. Five preset bevel stops zero your blade in at 0, 33.9, 45, 48, and -2 degrees, and there are 11 dead-on accurate miter stops at the most common spots: 0, 15, 22-1/2, 31.6, 45, 50 (left), and 60 (right) degrees. What we like best about this saw is the awesome ergonomic details. Anyone who’s used comparable saws repeatedly will tell you that the vertical handle causes some fatigue, especially on saws with a safety button. But this saw’s got a horizontal handle, keeping your hand and arm in a more natural position, cut after cut. Most saws’ miter adjustment involve turning a knob a few revolutions to lock and then to unlock the miter setting, but this DeWalt has a really nice cam lever lock that eliminates all that twisting and is just as reliable. This saw does throw a lot of dust, but we’ve not seen a saw that doesn’t (even those with dustbags still make a mess). We’d recommend building a little jig to hold your extraction system hose close by. This is a fabulous saw for the contractor. It weighs only 43 pounds and is easy to tote because of the handle. But it’s also the perfect choice for the woodworker. An aside: DeWalt makes a great miter saw stand that fits this saw like a dream.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT Saw!!Use it thoughtfully
    I've had the saw for about a week and am very pleased.I bought the DW723 stand too and that's also great.A few reviews have knocked the product, but I suspect that's due to misuse or lack of thinking or experimentation.For example, the amount of dust thrown and collected is one issue.I use the saw with a shop vac on the dust outlet.Used straight down on the workpiece like a chopsaw it throws quite a bit of dust.But if you start the cut with the saw close to you and cut full depth towards the back, it throws almost no dust that the vac doesn't pick up.(I DO wish DeWalt had seen fit to design it for a 2.5 inch vac hose rather than 1.25 to increase the air flow and dust capture.)

    Also I've seen gripes about the material supports, but I don't understand why.The saw can be positioned anywhere along the rail of the stand, so if the saw is set at one end, support is available on the rail infinitely out to 4 feet and then the adjustable support adds another 3.5 feet.I suppose cutting a miter on the end of a 20 foot long board would demand additional support -- but DeWalt must have found that's a rarity and didn't want to add the extra weight -- understandable.

    Finally, availability of the 8.5 inch blade is NOT an issue.I found 60 tooth carbide tipped blades made by the GREEN Japanese tool company both at Lowes and online at Amazon for less than $30.They make a beautiful cut.Several other makes of the 8.5 blades are available too -- but their prices are generally substantially higher.

    Hope this corrects some misleading information in a few reviews.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not great
    Let me start off by saying that I have yet to find any miter saw that I would rate at five stars(although I do believe I rated the 12" Dewalt slide at 5 stars) because every manufacturer does put profit above product.However, I do like this saw very much.Slide is smooth, fence height good(when will Makita and Hitachi finally get the fence height right and even on both sides), lever action miter lock is awesome(knobs stink), blade deflection is good(it is only a 8-1/2 blade afterall), overall a really good saw.Dust collection complaints are irrelevant, as anyone expecting a slider miter saw to have good dust control lives in the world of clean radial arm saws too.I have yet to figure out what a "material hold down clamp"(or work clamp) is, but if I ever do, it means that I cut off on of my arms/hands and should not by using this saw anyway(we pros dont have time for clamping down wood prior to cutting it[short pieces should be cut from a long one, afterall]).I would buy another one in an instant.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice saw for cabinet/furniture makers
    I've had this for about 6 months and it's never let me down. It takes a little getting used to if you've never used a sliding miter saw before, as the technique is somewhere between a radial arm saw and a normal fixed miter saw.As a couple of other reviewers pointed out, you have to make sure you slide the saw all the way home or you'll leave a little bit uncut.

    One thing I've found is when I'm cutting narrow planks (4" or 6") I've gotten into the habit of pulling the blade toward me past the front edge of the piece, dropping it down, and then sliding it back through the piece - instead of just plunging the blade straight in, as you'd do with a fixed chop saw.This seems to significantly reduce bottom tearout.

    It's undeniably a very pleasant tool to use; if you've only used saws that have a vertical handle you won't believe the difference the horizontal handle makes. The switch is well designed, it's not easy to trigger by accident but not fatiguing to hold.The action of the slides is smooth as silk, and setting the miter angles is quick, easy, and very positive. The motor has plenty of power for any kind of wood I've ever sent its way.

    The 8 1/2 inch size has some advantages - the blade seems to be more stable, even without a stabilizer, than most 10" blades.Also in my experience 8 1/2" blades are a little cheaper than the equivalent 10" blade.But, it won't cut a 4x4 (or a 2x4 on edge) in one pass - a 10 incher will.Whether or not that matters depends on the kind of work you do.

    You'll want to replace the blade that the saw comes with, it's fine for chopping up 2x4s (but if that's all you want to do you don't need this saw) but not good enough for finish work.There aren't a million blades available for this size of saw, but there's a decent selection - although not all the catalogs carry them.My favorite is a 60 tooth DeWalt finish blade that you can find most anywhere for about 50 bucks and does great work for me in all types of hardwood.Freud makes one that's pretty good as well.Forrest makes one of their chopmaster blades in this size, I'm sure it's great but it's $100+ and since I'm happy with my current blade I've never tried it.

    Overall fit and finish is very nice - as you generally expect from contemporary Italian manufacture.After taking it out of the box, I went over it completely with my machinist square and couldn't find anything out of alignment.The only quality complaint I have is the crummy screws holding the blade guard on - blade changing is not exactly a snap with this saw and they really don't help.

    There's no clamp included, unlike some other manufacturers - since I prefer to keep all 10 of my fingers I bought one - but they soak you on this item - $35!!Actually I bought two but you only need one - you hardly ever use both at once and it takes a second or two to swap it from one side of the saw to the other.Also, while it holds well, it's a screw type and I would prefer some type of cam action - I think that would be faster and easier to use.

    But overall if you want a really sweet, pleasant to use saw and you don't normally need to cut large timber, I'd recommend this saw - I'm certainly very happy with it. ... Read more
