Purchased this saw a few months ago. Very happy with it with the exception of a few minor details. The scale is off at one end. At cuts wider than 16 inches, the scale is right on when using a tape to measure from the blade to the fence. As the fence moves closer to the blade the scale is off by a 16th of an inch or more. When I adjust the indicating line with the fence close to the blade, the fence becomes inacurate as it moves away from the blade. Typically I use a tape measure when setting the distance from the fence to the blade, however at this price I would expect the scale to be more accurate. Additionally, the location of the on/off switch is such that I have shut my saw off several times while cutting by bumping the switch with my leg. The blade is more diificult to change than I'm use to with my old craftsman. Aside from that, I enjoy the using the saw.
