Review

I demand accuracy and dependability from my mitersaw every day or it’s off the jobsite.
So I'm comfortable saying Milwaukee’s 12" dual-bevel compound mitersaw is the best non-slider I've ever used. The digital read-out miter scales, displayed to .1°, proved dead-on accurate. That kind of repeatability is especially important when several people use the saws and change settings; it’s easy to return to a setup and know it will be accurate. The microadjuster with detent override lets you zero in on uncommon miter angles. And the miter table glides on needle bearings so smoothly you forget you're using a mitersaw. I'm not interested in gimmicks (such as lasers), but the twin lights mounted on each side of the blade are great because they illuminate the cut area without glare or shadow. This saw has a beefy 15-amp gear-driven motor with soft-start that is strong enough to blast through tough 4×4 ipe without a hiccup. I could crosscut up to 7-7/8" with this saw. Still, it weighs 55 lbs, so be prepared if you plan to lug it around. --Reviewed by Dave Fish for WOOD Magazine
