The WEN 70716 Product Reviews


The WEN 70716 miter saw is kind of so-so saw. This saw has the same range for both positive and negative points of views. With some great features, this saw can work great. It can cut well enough. In addition, this saw has great light. Also, the sliding part is very useful. This saw has good solid construction and the angles which are more precise than other miter saws with the same range of the price. 95{9a380f4e84d98486cb4e3fb0b774145dd920d53eef77a0fda2ce39067aee7610} of this tool is made from plastic and aluminum which makes it very light weight. Therefore, this saw is easy to move around.


One downside of this saw is the blade that presents with it completely bad and would highly suggest changing it out for a better quality one. It splinters the wood really bad, and sometimes does not cut very straight because it seems kind of warped. Even after lots of wasted time trying to make the blade cut square, it would not but the same straight cut twice in a row. No positive locks for 0, 22 1/2, 45 degrees, however an accomplished woodworker can still make good things with this saw. The slides are a bit stiff. The other bummer about this saw is the itty bitty dust bag. Dust collection bag came with bulky hole in it making it completely useless. Allen wrench was completely rusted out also; therefore it can make consistent cuts.


In conclusion, based on some reviews, the WEN 70716 miter saw is kind of good saw. This saw is well enough for hobbyist or home worker, but it is NOT good enough for professional or woodworkers.
