Re: Mitre Saw


If I was replacing my 20 year old LS1013, it'd be with a dewalt flexvolt slider... but the Makita keeps chugging along.

Re: Mitre Saw


can't speak for a 10" but for a 12" I still think the DW716 is hard to beat for a trim saw..

Re: Mitre Saw


I traded my LS1013 for the newer ls1019.... I've been very happy with the new one but I still regret selling the older one.
I just had it dialed in where I needed it and had all my techniques dialed in with it as well.

DWS 780, it's a beast and a bit heavy to lug around but a great machine.

Re: Mitre Saw


10" bosch axial glide still gets my vote.
I've been toting this thing since 2014 I think. It's only broken once, and the part was under $50 (part of the axial arm)

I like the Bosch as well, and recommended one to a fellow carpenter.... But I couldn't get over the initial weight.

I'm 40 on the dot.
Weight is brutal, it gets old.
Having the Bosch on a rolling stand is not optional

Re: Mitre Saw


Well that makes me wonder if Dewalt has a rolling stand. I can't tell you how many times I'll figure out some other way to cut a particular piece of this or that in order to avoid lugging my Dewalt 12" out of the trailer. Wheels would make a huge difference.

Re: Mitre Saw


The non slider DeWalt 12" is not to bad to carry and can cut most of everything you need. The 12" sliders get big and clumsy...

I have my Dewalt Flexvolt Slider on the Bosch Gravity Rise stand.

Takes up a lot of real estate in the trailer, but sure is nice.
