DW744S Portable Tablesaw Review
This portable tablesaw from DeWalt has a solid stand that locks into the saw
This portable tablesaw has a solid stand that locks into the saw. The stand has slots for tabs on the saw to slip into. However, setting the saw into the stand takes some practice because it’s hard to see the stand while holding the saw. Despite the elegant side-support system, full-size panel cutting is awkward to get started because, compared to a sliding-table extension, the support arm attached to the fence is a smaller target for the corner of a large plywood sheet. The fence itself is sophisticated and accurate, but its rack-and-pinion mechanism is hard to adjust if it’s whacked out of alignment. The DeWalt DW744S was the lightest saw we tested.
