DeWalt DW717

Huge vertical-cutting capacity easily tackles large crown molding. We loved how easy it is to adjust miters with its fat cam-lock lever. The bevel control, however, is in the rear, tucked under the dust bag, which didn't do its job. There's no safety trigger and no laser, but this is still a great all-around saw.
