DEWALT 12-in 15-Amp Single Bevel Compound Miter Saw Item (Model DWS715)

I've been looking at miter saws and checked brickseek. My local Lowes stores have the DWS715 listed for $219. Normal price is $299. YMMV. (brickseek shows $230.58 for Home Depot, but all my local stores are out of stock)

This DWS715 model is the single bevel, 12" blade but does not have the XPS Cross Cut Positioning System with LED light.

The DW715 12-in single-bevel compound miter saw is powered by a 15 Amp motor to drive 4,000 RPM, delivering extended power and durability. Features stainless steel miter detent plate and cam miter lock that provide repeatable accuracy and durability with easy adjustments. Tall sliding fences support 5-1/2-in of base molding vertically and 5-1/2-in of crown molding vertically nested. Lightweight design and built-in carry handle for portability.
  • Stainless steel miter detent plate with 14 positive stops
  • Precise miter system and machined base fence support
  • Tall sliding fence supports 5-1/2-in base vertically
  • Bevels 0°-48° to the left and 0°-3° to the right
  • 2-in x 8-in dimensional lumber cross cut capacity at 90° and 2-in x 6-in dimensional lumber at 45°
Note: There was a deal for the DWS716XPS saw at HomeDepot for $299 that just expired, which was a better deal IMO but shipping was 2 weeks out. DWS716XPS is a 15 Amp Corded 12 in. Double-Bevel Compound Miter Saw with Cutline LED.

Edit: Lowes does price match Home Depot, but I have not tried. Lowes Price match policy below.

Bought this for 163 after taxes back in 2017 on Amazon. It was a gate way drug to spending many many more thousands of dollars in tools.

Yes, according their website. But I have not tried.

If you can wait out for a deal where you get the stand for a just a few $$ more than do it. I bought this same exact model w/stand earlier this year from HD. That thing was a lifesaver.

Seems like a great deal for this if you can find one at this price. I have one like it but from about 10 years ago. Pretty sure I paid quite a bit more for it back then.*

For those who want "sliding" too, keep in mind a 12" saw is already pretty beefy. Once you add the sliding mechanism, it becomes pretty unwieldy if you ever plan to move it or use it as a "portable." Part of the thing with the 12" is that you don't need the "sliding" as much. In a smaller saw like 7 1/4 or 10", the sliding is much more important. But even in those the sliding mechanism does add a lot of weight and space. So decide what you need based on what sort of stuff you'll be cutting. There are so many options now, including both lower and higher-end battery-powered ones. But anyway I'll say again for a 12" DeWalt saw this is a nice deal!

*EDIT in reference to previous post, I think when I got mine (10+ years ago so not exact same model), there was the bonus saw stand as part of a promo. But I'm pretty sure it was over $300, more like maybe $349 (the stand was valued at $149 I think as the "free" promo). Anyway yes, you DO want a stand for this.

I have this mitre saw. No complaints on quality but in hindsight I would have just got the Milwaukee 7 1/4 slider. Same cutting capacity (outside of vertical) smaller, cheaper blades and lighter. Dragging this bad boy off the shelf in my garage and then to my backyard or front yard is cumbersome. First thoughts are always, "can I just cut it with my circular saw first? How accurate do I really need to be?"

Now if I didn't live in Southern California and I actually had some space I probably wouldn't care but our "two car" garage needs to be organized or we can't put my wife's car in there.

I'm just getting into wood working. I wish I had a clue of what I needed or wanted. I'm just following plans with a lot to pick from.

Was also looking at the rigid one posted here today as well. I just don't want to throw a bunch of money into tools with no experience and be that guy. I already have stands that I can lock anything into.

I bought this same model earlier for $199 at Blain's Farm and Fleet. I know it's a regional chain but if you have one near by you can save $20. There's some other Dewalt deals too, like the 13" planer.

I'm a total newb too. really depends on what other tools you already have and go from there.

I don't have a table saw or anything fancy. Steve Ramsey recommends a 10 inch nonsliding but he's got a table saw as his go-to. Seems like a 12 inch blade is way more expensive than a 10 inch, and sliding tends to make things slightly less accurate. I don't see myself cutting anything bigger than 2x4s so a 10 should do just fine, even without the table saw.

YMMV i guess. I usually spend a little too much for my own skill level so I'm trying to dial it back this time and take it slowly.
