Warranty & Service Information
Can the DW872 be used to cut 3"x3" lead blocks?
We do not recommend using the DW872 for this application, instead we would recommend using a metal cutting band saw such as the D28770.

I just purchased this saw and put it to the test. I am very impressed. Best cuts i from a saw. Cut through 4" square tubing like butter. Leaves clean and square cut on a material. Love this saw paid for it's self.
Two things right off the bat. The fence is not flat. I tried to use a square to set the fence to ninety degrees to the blade, but the fence has a 1/16" curve to it, so an accurate cut is out of the question. Luckily, there is enough meat to the fence to grind it flat, which I will have my neighbor do on his surface grinder. Second, the fence lock handle has a pretty good bend to it. It still works, but I worry about how long it will last. For the money, I expected somewhat better.
Pros: Cuts like hard butter through steel if you take your time.
