2.0 out of 5 stars Not square..., 12 Sept. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Metabo KGS216M Crosscut and Mitre Saw, 2.5 x 1.6-ft (DIY & Tools)
I picked this product on the basis of a lot of positive reviews on Amazon, although elsewhere on the internet some of the other reviews were less glowing. Here's my issue with this saw. Firstly, the positive stop at 0 degrees (i.e. the one you would use simply to cut at right angles) is a good 2 degrees out. The only method (as far as I can see) to correct this is to adjust the fence - which would be fine except a 2 degree adjustment is more than the fence is really designed to move. Secondly, the fully upright position on the bevel is also about 2 degrees out. As a consequence, setting it up at the 0 positive stop, fully upright bevel, gives nothing like a square cut - you can tell by eye (no need for a set square here!). So, it's not so much that you can't get a square cut - you can with a lot of fiddling about - but that you can't do it easily. The same goes for mitre and bevel cuts. Really have to question the manufacturing tolerances used by metabo. Disappointed.

Sounds like a manufacture fault. Why did you not ask for replacement?

As can be seen in an earlier post, both 0 and 45 degree limits can be adjusted with a spanner and allen key. It is not a problem.

I also found the same error regarding the cutting angle
