In Detail

The 305mm diameter blade gives you outstanding cutting performance. The DWS780 offers effortless accuracy from cutting small profiles to large section timbers up to 110 x 303mm. This is a heavy-duty machine, built for durability and fully adjustable to maintain accuracy over the life of the tool. Easy-to-use mitre and bevel controls make the tool fast and simple to change from one set-up to another. A quick release bevel stop helps set accurate bevel angles up to 49° left and right. A cam action mitre lock function makes mitre setting fast and easy for angles between 0° - 50° left and 0° - 60° right. The grooving stop allows you to cut grooves or rebates. The XPS shadow line cut indicator gives you a unique and accurate way to align the blade, at the same time illuminating the work. The large dual sliding fence gives plenty of support for tall workpieces at any angle. The electronic speed control lets you adjust cutting speed when cutting materials other than wood. Supplied with 60 tooth TCT blade, blade spanner, dust bag and material clamp.

Well built, easy to adjust, smooth, accurate, fine cutting saw!

Bought this two weeks ago and have been using it extensively to build several Georgian cupboards, for retrofitting in a restored Georgian townhouse, utilising very good tight resinous pine, both new and reclaimed. I have been very pleased but it has yet to stand the test of time, although I see no reason, other than abuse, why it won't - it is robust and well engineered.
Having decided to make the 2.75 hour drive to Axminster to look at all the mitre saws I was interested in I was initially disappointed that APT did not have the Bosch GCM 12 GLD for me to look at as well but, as it happened, I think they did me a favour - for £94 less I got a very good smooth saw that is proving good for cabinet joinery and plenty stout and powerful for cross cutting large stock ( I tried it by squaring the end of an 9" x 3.5" section of truly air dried oak, 16% moisture content in the middle). All deliberately careful cuts have yielded a surface that a high spec. builder friend described as " beautifully planed" straight from the saw; this is testament indeed to the 60 tooth Dewalt blade that came with the saw. I see no need to upgrade this blade other than to reduce noise (and the Dewalt blade is nowhere near as loud as some I have known).
The indexing for square and mitre cuts was slightly out when I first checked but ten minutes later it was very, very accurate and has remained so. The adjustment procedure is very simple and in future, having done it once, I should be able to adjust the index and the indicator, using the on board key, in a couple of minutes at most. Out of curiosity I checked the indexing for bevelled cuts which was spot on straight from the box.
There is no play when I commence a wide cut.... Yes, I can create a tiny amount of left or right movement if I wish but when focussing on making a cut this has not happened at all - I have been able to just kiss the finest of pencil lines right across a 315mm cut to trim panel ends...... The unique shadow guide line is quite superb. (When I was in the APT showroom I could 'force' a small amount more play in the arm of their showroom saw, when it was drawn fully forward as though commencing a wide cut, but it did not seem to be play so much as a tiny amount of flex, so I concluded that it was unlikely to be an issue.... It is not an issue at all.
A fair amount of dust is still sprayed out when attached to a numatic extractor via a 38mm hose. The hood at the mouth of the exhaust is small so a fair amount dust misses it. I have been trying to eliminate this by creating a cloth hood ( from an old waterproof for its smooth surface) on fine bungees around the back of the rotating hub, between the exhaust and the fence that should rotate with the saw when set for mitres. It is a fair bit better but I anticipate building a larger solid hood that will also have a 4" pipe to collect that which misses my tent arrangement.
All in all I am very pleased!
