Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favourite toy. Works great, right out of the box. Solid power, no blade wobble; went through a wet 4x4 like it was butter. My only serious complaints are the lack of a cutline, and that it only comes with a single clamp; but, I should also mention the dust collection isn't great, and won't directly connect to a vacuum system, and the worklight is so dim that, if it's the difference between seeing your work and not, it's too dark to be working.

Completed basement project angles were perfect. Ability to “fine tune” is awesome! Only flaw, but I knew going in…a bit heavy. Highly recommend

I'm just DYI'er so sorry in advance if this is a stupid question. The description says the max miter cut is 60 degrees. Does that mean you can't cut 45 degree angles? Trying to find something to replace my POS Craftsmans that stop cutting straight years ago and can't seem to be fixed.
Asked by: Md2002
60 degrees is more than 45, so yes it will cut 45*. My advice.......look at something else. I am a professional and bought this saw 3 years ago and have only used it a couple times, its terrible. I kept it because I may use it for framing a house or a deck but if you want to do trim you'd be better off with a quality 10 inch sliding dual bevel. I just bought a Makita and it is magnificent. Good luck
