The Dewalt 705 was a real gem. It is the older style with a round twist knob to lock the miter settings, whereas the newer models have a flip lever. The 705 is a 12” fixed type, single bevel compound miter saw. Or choose the 703 for a 10” fixed saw.

It all depends if you need a slider. For me, I chose the accuracy of a fixed saw and made up for capacity by getting the 12” version. Anything too wide for the miter saw can be cut at the TS with a crosscut sled.

I have the 705 as well as a regular dewalt chop saw. The chop saw head doeosn’t tilt rotate or move. straight up and down only, haven’t explored if I am able to put a wood blade on it though, I use my 705 for woodworking.
