By D. Steele on December 28, 2005
Some of the other reviews didnt mention that in the description of this product, that it does clearly state that it "fits MOST Miter Saws, Does Not Fit The Bosch, Ridgid & Pro-Tech Model Miter Saws". I have a Dewalt DW715 12" compound miter saw, and after READING the instructions, installed it in just a few minutes. I then marked a scrap piece of wood with a thin pencil line from a .5mm mechanical pencil, turned the saw on, lowered the blade slightly and the laser line appeared. The laser is thin and clean. Because it is mounted next to the blade and does not activate until the the blade is turning, you cannot see the laser until you begin to lower the blade slightly and the blade cover moves out of the way. I placed the laser dead on with the line on the wood and it cut dead against it to the left as advertised. It is not meant to cut dead on the line. Again, others posting reviews did not read the product description where it does clearly state "Projects A Clear Line Just To The LEFT Of The Cut". And just dead to the left of the cut it is. With this in mind, it isnt difficult for a good builder to compensate ever so slightly for a dead on cut. This is after all, a clever third party product to "retro-fit" your miter saw. For the money, it will save you time in making accurate cuts. Also, after installing, I did not notice any difference in blade cuts, balance, vibrations, or such.

I have posted a few images to show you the laser guide installed on my Dewalt miter saw. Hopefully you will be able to see the laser light and how it installs. I hope this helps.

I saw this product in a display, came to Amazon and read a less than great review, causing concerns. I e-mailed the company and explained that I have a DW 705 12" miter saw and wondered if the product would work with that saw. The reply was that it would work with their "kit". I was asked for my mailing address so the kit could be sent. Well, today (9/07/05)the kit arrived. So, I bought the product, went to my shop, and installed the unit w/o the kit, first (it must be a guy thing). To my suprise, I found the unit to have an inset for the arbor (on the blade side) and the factory bolt worked just fine, no observed need for the kit. I reinstalled the blade guard and checked for clearance. All was fine. I started the saw and found no problems. I turned every lite on in my shop and found I see the line without any trouble whatsoever. I have 2 four foot double bulb lights right at my miter saw. I read the paperwork for the kit and find that it is for "older" 705 saws.

Long story short, I'm 54 and find this to be a great item. I'm thinking of having a bolt hole put in the arbor of my radial arm saw so I could put one on it!

D. Steele said all that needed to be said below. Excellent product that works extremely well. I've used this laser on my DeWalt 705 to trim out two houses over the past month or so and I am very pleased. It projects a crisp line just a fraction of a milimeter to the left of the cut. If you're not getting accurate cuts, it's your saw setup, not the laser at fault. I'm buying 2 more for other saws. The only way to improve this product would be to have a system where the laser was projected on both sides to show kerf, but that would require a whole different system and likely a saw specific(read expensive) design.

I purchased this guide to complement an inexpensive miter saw I purchased on Amazon. I've used it with two Hitachi Compound Miter Saws with good results.
This product replaces the arbor washer on the saw and automatically produces a red guide line along the left side of the blade when you start the saw. I found the guide to be very helpful. Just mark your workpiece with a pencil and center the guide over the mark. You will quickly get the hang of it. Just make sure that the "keeper" portion is cut on the left side of the blade.
This unit came with a nice little soft case and several alternative replacement arbor bolts in case the OEM one doesn't work. You will need to make sure you have clearance between the blade guard and the arbor nut once the guide is installed. Tolerances were fairly tight on the Hitachi C10FCE2, but it worked.
User Notes:
1. I typically set up my saw outdoors. In bright sunshine the red guide can be difficult to see. For best results position the saw so the left side of the blade is in the shade or do your cutting in a location where you can control the lighting.
2. Be aware that using this guide may require more attention when cutting thicker stock. One and two inch material works fine, but if you intend to cut 4 x 4 material be careful. The diameter of the laser guide is wider than the washer it replaces so you don't have as much clearance on thick stock. I found it worked okay when I was paying attention, but if you fully depress the blade you're going to wind up marring the end of your material.

It's a novel idea - put a laser beam in the arbor washer. It turns on/off with the saw, and shines down the edge of the blade onto your workpiece. Not bad for a first-generation idea, but it needs improvement:

* The mounting hole is much larger than the bolts, so getting the part (which is solid & heavy) on-center to keep the blade balanced is sheer luck.

* The beam is very sharp, but it's also very dim. Hard to see in normal shop lighting. They should make do with shorter battery life (3 button cells) and use a brighter laser.

* Dispite Irwin's claims, it doesn't work on the very popular DeWalt DW705 12" compound miter - the part isn't tapered on top, so it grinds against the pivot joint for the blade guard.

I would have kept mine anyway, but with a DW705 it's sadly not possible.
