When using this saw you really cant tell that you saved money buying it.
Curtis S.
The problems started when I tried to make simple 45 degree bevel cuts in 5 1/4 inch wide base molding.

People should not complain about inaccurate 90 degree cuts right out of the box.

This saw was by far the cheapest offering sliding capability (FYI, it's gone up in price about 30% but it's still a great deal). I read the reviews and figured at the worst, I would have a chop saw that I could at least use to just cut boards and stuff, which is fine. At best, I would have a fully capable miter saw capable of making precision cuts for a fraction of the cost of the more expensive "pro grade."

Well, I received the saw and was more than satisfied with the quality of the product. It's the same type of metal you'll find on any of these lower-end miter saws. In terms of build quality, you can compare this saw with anything at HD for under 300 bucks and it will be nearly identical.

Blade: not great, but stock blades are never that great, even on $500+ saws. Always a good idea to invest in a quality aftermarket blade like Freud Diablos.

Sliding action: functions well and low profile. I was worried this would be a weak point. It is not. A little lubricant would help here, as it doesn't glide effortlessly, but it is still smooth.

Power: standard, adequate for just about any job and no different than any other saw in its class.

Fence: it was off by a degree or two out of the box, as the directions prepare you for. A few minutes loosening and tightening the bolts that hold it and lining up with a straight edge and you are good to go. For people complaining about this, you really need to be realistic here; few saws are going to be perfect right out of the box.

So here's where my review gets useful to most people. After having the saw about a week and using it to make a few cuts--including using an abrasive blade to cut through 1/4" copper bar--I was one day using it to cut a gnarly piece of hickory wood.

Remember, only people with problems usually write negative reviews, there will always be someone with a problem. This saw is the first miter saw that i ever used, I am not a professional carpenter. If you want a professional saw used by professionals with profesional results, you need to spend three times this saw. I am using it for a deck and cutting huge peices of wood with very good success, i'm not looking for diamond cut angles under a microscope. This saw is getting a beating with 2=6''wood, treated too and its whaling away with no broken parts or problems. Its probably an entry level saw at $150.00 but a good name. I bought an extended warranty at the store so i am coverd for 2 years with full replacement, always get the extended warranty and buy it where you can take it back if its crap. It sells for $150 everywhere on line, I got it for $99.00 at menards, shop around, internet is not always the place to shop. All the major retailers in the cold weather areas get rid of their saws an seasons end.

First of all, let me acknowledge that this is a very low priced saw (sort of why I bought it) and should not be expected to perform as well as higher end tools. In fact, if all you need is a miter saw with the ability to cut wider boards than a simple chop-saw, it is probably not a bad value. The base supports the work piece firmly; the hold-down clamp works well, and the saw made 90 degree cuts right out of the box with no adjustment to the fence needed. The cuts were not the smoothest, but that is why there are aftermarket blades for these things.

The problems started when I tried to make simple 45 degree bevel cuts in 5 1/4 inch wide base molding. When I rotated the blade assembly 45 degrees and tightened down the bevel lock handle the first thing I noticed was that the locking mechanism is very weak. The weight of the motor should keep the blade from rotating back from a 45 degree angle but I don't think it would hold it's position very well against the saw's vibration if set at a lesser angle with no stop to rest against; I haven't tried cutting a bevel other than 45 degrees but had no real difficulty rotating the blade all the way back to vertical with the lock engaged.

The next thing I noticed is that the hold-down clamp interferes with control arm for the blade guard if the clamp is mounted on the left side of the fence when cutting a 45 degree bevel and interferes with the motor housing if the clamp is mounted on the right side of the fence when making a 90 degree cut. If you are cutting molding with a bevel cut at one end and a straight (90 degree) cut on the other you have to move the hold-down clamp each time you change ends of the board. Also, the kerf board could not be adjusted so that it did not interfere with the blade on a 45 degree bevel cut.

This WEN was a lifesaver that made short work of a minideck. It was built with diagonal planking so lots of 45s. Ran strong, never jammed. The only issues I had while building were a powerstrip died (old powerstrip, not the saw's fault) and I discovered that mitering doesn't work if you try to set the miter to the right unless you are also beveling. The guide prevents the blade from sliding all the way back. So you have to set the miter in the other direction and remember to orient your board appropriately. Otherwise I would give this a 5 star review for home use.
