mynamesdave Posted February 9, 2011 Report Share Posted February 9, 2011 Hi folks, new kid on the block here. Ok, here is my question....I have been researching the sliding compound mitersaws and have narrowed my search down to the DW717 and the DW718 now aside from one being a 10" and the other being a 12" inch is there any big difference? I know that when I tell you that I am going to be using it to cut urns, and chessboards and moldings and trims as a hobbiest not as a contracter you will be screaming why so much saw? I want something that I can just go straight to get the cuts that I want and not worry about remarking and flipping boards and thing like that. It has been my experience that you get what you pay for....well I have the chance to get an excellent saw (even got the wife on board LOL) so this is the saw that I am looking at. I dont see much difference between the two, what has experience told you? Also I have a dewalt palm sander that spun a bearing at Christmas time is it worth opening up and replaceing parts or should I just buy another one? Thanks for the advice, awesome site Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
