Product Description

Amazon.com

Designed to provide the benefits of a miter saw laser line generator without requiring time-consuming recalibration before each project, the DEWALT DWS7085 miter saw LED work light system casts a shadow from your saw blade onto your cutting surface, which acts as a guide. This allows you to cut quickly and accurately, and it makes alignment tasks easy. This system has the added benefit of illuminating your work surface for improved visibility, safety, and productivity. The DEWALT DWS7085 makes use of a separate power supply, so you can use it whether or not the blade is being operated. This LED system bolts onto the pre-wired power supply and is only compatible with the DWS780 DEWALT miter saw.

Customer Reviews

The lighting creates a shadow of the blade so you can see exactly where the blade will cut.
Steven H
The DWS7085 LED Worklight doesn't fit my new Dewalt DW715 (TYPE 3) miter saw even though the Dewalt packaging says it will fits a DW715.
Gary D. Kramer
The disadvantages are that the work light gets washed out by bright light, so it's great inside a workshop but useless outside.

The DeWalt DWS7085 LED worklight system is fantastic. I was able to install it in about 10 minutes and it works great. It not only shows the blade shadow for precise cuts, it also lights up the work surface. The light could be a little brighter as I sometimes use the saw outdoors in better than shop lighting. I prefer it to a laser as it shows both sides of the cut and does not need any adjustment to be precise. Great addition to a great saw.

Installation: Easy on my DW718. Kit comes with a small torx tool to remove the necessary cover plates for the switch/power assembly and worklight assembly. You have to raise the blade guard to get to one of the mounting screws for the LED worklight. No adjustments needed.

Function: Bright, ambient LED worklight certainly improves safety and awareness of immediate area surrounding the blade. Independent On/Off switch for LED light is another nice feature...if you leave the light on, it indicates that the saw is "live" or "hot" and your crazy buddy won't have the urge to pull the trigger to see if the saw is still plugged in.

The resolution of the shadow that is created by the LED downlight on the saw blade is quite remarkable. You can actually see the kerf of each tooth...lasers can't do that. The shadow accurately tracks at all angles and bevels (why wouldn't it...it's a shadow.)

Things to think about:
- Performs as promised in a workshop/ garage. If you are working in the sunny outdoors, forget about seeing any shadow.
- Shadow resolution is clearest when blade is close to workpiece. All of the simulated product photos show the shadow line when the saw blade is pulled down to raise the blade guard out of the way.
- If your blade is not true or has runout problems, the projected shadow may not be accurate...if this is the case, you have bigger problems than a crooked shadow.

Overall, I would recommend this product.

I wasn't quite sure if this was going to be a wise investment or not but after the first time of using it I was SOLD! When you turn the light on as the saw approaches the material you get an exact shadow of what is going to be removed. This takes a lot of the guessing and repositioning out of my day now and I couldn't imagine not having it now.

Even though all documentation says this installs in miter saw DW715, it is not completely true. I was not able to install this. I purchased a new DW715 Miter Saw and discovered after hours of searching and contacting Dewalt customer service, that Dewalt changed their model DW715 to a new revision "type 3" which means this light does not fit that model. The new "Type 3" does not have the part in the handle where the LED light's Switch and Power supply connect. All documentation in Amazon and Dewalt says it installs in DW715, so there is no way for you to know that Dewalt just did a revision # 3 on this model DW715 and does not fit this light. I had to return this item. No problems on the return and credit of the purchase. Good job Amazon!

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Nathaniel Allen TOP 500 REVIEWER on October 26, 2009
Like the majority of other opinions written here, DeWalt's LED worklight solution is a great alternative to finicky lasers. I've extensively used two laser units, LaserKerf's add-on unit on a DeWalt 708 (quite nice) and Makita's joke of a laser on their LS1016L 10" miter.

Anyhow... as has been already pointed out, the LED needs no adjustment and projects a shadow the width of the kerf. My cuts are dead on.

Detractors? A few.

The shadow isn't crisp and clear until the blade is lowered at least half-way to the workpiece. This is a minor inconvenience because I've taken to casting my lasers (and now shadows) directly onto a tape measure held against the work piece, eliminating the need to pencil-mark the wood. If I had three hands, this wouldn't be an issue. As I only have two, I have to set the tape measure, lower the blade, adjust my piece without jiggling the tape out of place, then remove the tape without jostling the workpiece out of place.

Installation is a little cramped. The small connectors that others have noted weren't really a problem, and they're actually quite big when they have to sit just so in the tiny compartment on the saw, nested in amongst the various wires. On my DW717, it took a couple of tries of repositioning the connectors and wires to be able to get the LED unit to set flush on the saw.

The switch is tiny AND covered with a loose rubber cover, so it's a bit of an inconvenience to turn the LED on and off if using the saw intermittently. It'd be great if it was a pushbutton instead of a rocker switch, and even better if it had a time-out function of some sort after, say, 15 or 30 minutes of inactivity on the saw.

Lastly, for some strange reason, this LED causes a bunch of static interference on my radio whenever it's powered on.

All-in-all, a great device that removes ALL of the guess work out of my cuts.

Here are the high points...
Super easy installation - the saw is prewired to accept the light and power supply.
No batteries or adapters - the unit is powered directly from the saw.
There's no adjustment needed - the shadow line is dead on (it can't help but be).
It doesn't matter if I'm using my regular or thin kerf blades; everything in the shadow gets cut. Nothing more, nothing less.

Here are a few other things to note - not bad things, just had to get used to them...
Need to lower the blade to the workpiece to get a decent shadow.
Took a little bit to get used to the lumpy looking shadow line, since each individual carbide tooth casts a shadow.

Here are the low points...
I waited six months before deciding to by this thing - STUPID!
I would buy the LED work light again in a heartbeat!
