Cam Miter Lock

Gifted carpenters understand the value of proper miter table positioning as an essential ingredient of impeccable workmanship. 

However, the accuracy of the positioning can be exceedingly tricky when working with a faulty or substandard saw.

The Dewalt DWS713 compound miter saw comes with a Cam Miter Lock that helps its users to position the miter table in perfect alignment. 

As such, the worker is able to proceed with the work without the usual fears of misalignment and inaccurate measurements.

Miter Detent Override

Another great feature that comes with DEWALT DWS713 is the Miter Detent Override. 

It makes work easier and perfect; particularly, the Miter Detent Override eases the processes of angling and adjustment.

Usually, poor quality work derives from the shortcomings of angling.

In this case, the DEWALT Compound Miter Saw comes with the solution of precise angles and easier alignment.

5000 RPM Motor

With a power capacity of 15 amps, the combination of the 5000 RPM motor and powerful 10″ DEWALT saw blade means an incredible, efficient performance.

Moreover, the machine’s designers ensured that the motor works with the assurance of extended power in order to achieve consistency while work is in progress.

Crown molding is one of the areas where the DEWALT DWS713 has shown its impressive capabilities the most.

The saw has tall sliding fences that play a crucial supportive role during crown molding.

The details of the task entail vertical support measured appropriately to guarantee the level of accuracy anticipated in the work plan. 

The sliding fences are especially useful for interior styling or cabinet construction, both of which require the utmost attention to detail.

Stainless Steel Detent Plate

This miter saw comes with stainless steel detent plate, which has eleven positive stops that help to enhance the accuracy of its work. 

The detent plate was designed to enhance your existing skills and craftsmanship to achieve top-notch results.

In addition, the stainless steel quality of the saw protects it from corrosion, and easy staining and maintains the saw’s condition for years.

Machined Base Fence

The strength and stability of the compound miter saw can be partly explained by the base fence support that keeps it in place and in shape for optimum performance.
