When it comes to miter saws, it’s fair to say we’re some of the toughest customers around. We have things  we’d like to change on even our favorite saws, and that’s probably because we demand cabinetmaking precision from a carpenter’s tool – and we use the things so darn much ever since we sold our radial arm saw.

The good news here is that the DeWalt DW718 is the best 12″ miter saw I’ve ever used. The bad news is there are still a few more tweaks I’d like to see.
