Great price for this DeWalt mitre saw. I ordered last night and delivery showing as 6th-25th April.

Alternatively, unless you're planning on using it as a tradesmen, which is unlikely as tradesmen have far better kit, but more likely for doing the odd bit of work such as laminate flooring, just invest in a cheap but well rated Titan Mitre saw for £50 at Screwfix: screwfix.com/p/t…95p

and then get yourself a decent 80 tooth blade for fine cutting it: screwfix.com/p/e…97v

So all in all, £85 instead of over £200, and with 2 blades for normal cutting and fine cutting.

And yes, I know the blade is 216mm but the mitre saw says only 210 mm, but it still fits with gaps to spare and doesn't catch anywhere. I know this as it's the setup I bought even though I'm a Dewalt lover with Cordless Drill, Impact Driver, SDS drill and multitool. I've so far used it with the standard blade for building cupboards for a 58ft boat, and with the fine blade for laminate flooring and it's been faultless.

But for the amount and type of work you're realistically going to do with it, why pay so much for something for only occasional use that will last just as long because of it?

The stand is still £75 on amazon if you are not in a hurry for it.

I'm going cold on this, sorry OP- it's the same price at FFX and pence cheaper at Toolstop (using the SAVE3NOW code) without the month's wait. Paying the same price as elsewhere then having to wait weeks for it doesn't seem like much of a deal to me.

While I'll understand the sentiment, the two aren't comparable simply on the basis that the DeWalt is a sliding saw and the Titan isn't.

I would say however that I think you get a lot more for your (considerably less) money with Metabo's equivalent (KGS216M).

They're comparable if you're buying thinking you might use the sliding feature when in honesty the likelihood you're just going to use it for straightforward cuts quickly like the majority of home DIY'rs, but I get your point

Indeed, though bear in mind that (just using your suggested usage) for laminate flooring, in many cases with it's max cut of 120mm, the Titan just won't cut it (boom! ).

Looking at the Metabo on YouTube now.

This looks really nice, the slide is on precision roller bearings.

Do you have the Metabo?

I am after an accurate and high quality saw for a good price. So in this instance I am not interested in Titan, Evolution, Erbauer etc.

I do need the side function on the first job and may also go for a bigger blade.

I do, it's decent and you get a lot for your money. I had to set mine up, it wasn't bang-on out of the box. It's about £145 on Amazon at the minute I think.
Managed to get this for around 160 odd with the 20% off eBay last time around

I have the Metabo KGS254. It's a beast of a machine, a bit heavy but excellent all the same.

My only gripe is the nylon plastic handle used to adjust the bevel is not durable and eventually 'rounds off'. I welded a half spanner on and it's now perfect.
