I also received this as a gift but I knew I wanted it because it was on my wishlist. So far I have used it for a travertine backsplash and ceramic tiles. The saw performed well except it didn't cut the travertine as fast as the ceramic. I put the blame for that on the blade since the RPMs are sufficient. Other people have suggested buying a new blade and I might give that a shot as well. Construction is quite sturdy, the whole ting is quite heavy and mine is all metal. Fence is nice, I have adjusted the latch to provide a tighter grip on the surface. I even used this saw for scoring lines on my 12x8 retaining wall blocks and it scored and made cuts nicely!
For the price this is a good saw for the DIYer and small projects around the house.
Which is the first point to really know about this saw. Don't expect it to work AT ALL until you buy a new blade. The blade that comes mounted is absolutely worthless. So when you buy this saw also buy a brand named tile blade here at Amazon.
This saw will really cost you about $120 once you pay for shipping and replace the blade, so if your project can be completed with about two days of renting a nice saw - go rent the professional saw. If renting isn't an option, then this saw WILL get the job done. But be prepared to fiddle with it to get your cuts done right.
Mechanically the saw has been functional and it appears that it will make it through the current project and possibly the next as well.
After buying the saw, I was pleased with it's overall construction, especially the rip fence, which is metal. The fence was able to be clamped down securely and I never had to readjust it during my entire cutting job except at the end when I had to cut the odd-size pieces on the borders.
The only problem with the saw is the blade it comes with is worthless. It would not even make one 6" cut on the travertine. I promptly went out and bought a continuous rim diamond blade for about $25 on sale, and the difference was night and day. No issues cutting travertine tiles up to 18" long. So if you order this saw, save yourself some time and money and order a good diamond blade at the same time and do not use the one that comes with the saw. Because of this I rated the saw 4 stars but would have rated it 5 stars if it came with a good blade.
