I'm looking to get a new 12" CMS. I prefer the Dewalts, but am deciding
between the 705 and the 706. The 706 has dual bevel and greater verticle
cutting capacticity. At Sears, the 706 will only cost $20 more after rebate
and discount. However, the 705 comes with one extension and the extentions
can be stored under the saw completely retracted. Extensions can't be
retracted on the 706.
This is for home use. I'm planning on using it immediately for cross
cutting, new baseboards, and new crown. Who knows what in the future.
Footprint is somewhat important, and weight not so much.
