  • Blade brake on R4121

    I recently purchased a 12" dual compound miter saw. The specs say it has a blade brake.

    If so, how long does it take for the blade to stop? It seems to take 5-8 additional blade revolutions before the blade on my saw come to a stop.

    When the brake kicks in on my P-C circular saw the force of the brake actually causes the saw to move in your hand.

    I am just wondering if my saw is within spec.

    I have the very same saw and thats about how long it takes mine to stop.
    Mine is about 3 months old, and it has been like that since I got it.
    It don't sound like to me there is anything wrong with yours.
