DeWalt unveils sliding compound miter saw

DeWalt has launched a new 12-in. Sliding Compound Miter Saw, designed to be precise enough for fine woodworking, and durable enough for framing and deck building. 

The DWS780 is made for a variety of end users, including cabinetmakers, trim carpenters, framers, installers and many other professional contractors.

For visibility and accuracy when cutting, the new 12-in. Sliding Compound Miter Saw features the XPSTM LED light and cut-alignment system that casts a laser-like shadow on the work surface, showing users where the blade will come in contact with the material. Since it does not require recalibration over time or when changing blades, this alignment system can be more accurate and durable than traditional laser guides. 

The Sliding Compound Miter Saw will be available at home centers and independent distributors beginning September 2011 and it is expected to retail for approximately $599.
