Editor's Review: Testing 12-in. Sliding Compound-Miter Saws

review date: March 5, 2008

The DeWalt saw is the lightest, most compact of the bunch, and I found it the easiest to carry. This saw is an excellent choice for those who install a lot of tall baseboard and large crown molding, or for just about anyone who has to pack and unpack a saw every day. I was sorry to see that the 718 didn’t include the excellent vernier scale indicator DeWalt features on its nonsliding miter saws.
