Well, doesn't anybody own one of these? I'm referring to the Dewalt DW 718.
The saw they replaced the DW 708 with. Well, no biggie. I'm liking it more
every day. Does take some getting used to after using the 708 for several
years. Unlike a couple reviews I read, I see no problems with cutting out of
square, etc.. It is less portable that the old saw and that's my only
complaint so far. I have a way around that though. I've had a saw table on
wheels for years but never saw a really good reason to mount a saw on it as
it was useful for other tools (router table, portable table saw). I may
mount it on there. One thing's for certain, with the amount of tool stealing
that's been happening to me the last couple years, I can't lock up any tools
on the job. They're not safe in my van either
By the way, if dust collection was an isuue with me, I'd complain about
that as well. Not a problem, I mainly do interior trim so sweeping isn't an
Overall, I like the new saw better mostly because of the cutting capacity.
