Good versatile saw

Let me preface this with saying I am homeowner DIY??¦erI with some basic skills, not a building professional. Prior to purchase of this saw I borrowed a DW718 (12??) saw from a contractor friend to do some crown molding and trim work in the revamp of a home I had bought. Liked the features of doing compound angles and cross cuts, and if needed, after a fashion dados, using the stop adjustment. The last feature was very handy with some door trim where the hinges were recessed into the trim. Admittedly, it took some time to set the adjustment but once in place everything worked fine.

Bought the 717 as it had most of same features as the 718 but was a 10?? model. Overall performance was similar the larger cousin. As with other DeWalt reviews, the dust collection system is not that great (I work outside)and the blade that comes with the saw may be OK for doing rough work but not too hot for trim. Replaced it with a good quality 90 tooth blade.

Had to do some minor adjustments, but general alignment out-of-the-box was fine.

There were a few minor, but somewhat frustrating issues. First, the wrench to remove the blade was missing. Secondly, when I needed to replace the blade, the screws that held the guard in place appeared to have been set with some sort of thread cement (part of the reconditioning process?). Luckily, by using a large torx-head socket bit was able to get the screws loosened without stripping the heads.

Changing the blades is not as easy and fast and on the 12?? version, which has a plate over the arbor that easily rotates and has adequate clearance space for removal and installation of new blades. The 717 version does not have the same access and clearance, making this task a bit more challenging. Not a great design, but not a deal breaker either.

Once set up, the cuts were accurate. Have an electronic protractor and was able to check the accuracy of the angles. The 12?? version had a vernier type of clear plastic piece in the ho...

Skeptic buyer

I purchased this being skeptic about purchasing a reconditioned item, especially from the internet. However, I was very impressed with the condition with all observations it appeared brand new. I plugged it in and needed almost no adjustments cutting straight through any piece I put on it. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a great price for a truly great product/name.
