OK for small, straightforward projects only
on July 22, 2004
Bought this as a first wet saw for two small bathroom stone tile jobs. For making straight cuts it works well enough. However, the cheap plastic rip fence broke after about 15 cuts, after which I had to clamp it down. Never had use for the miter gauge, but it looked like accuracy might be an issue--again, a cheap-looking plastic item. Yes, this saw will make 45-deg bevel cuts, but only at the end of a piece, not in the middle, and with pretty poor accuracy. All in all, I was frustrated but getting by with this saw--it's still cheaper than renting for more than a day or two--but then when I was about 80% done with the project, the motor simply quit halfway through a cut and would not reset even after a "cooldown".
Overall, I'd recommend this only for very small projects where you want the time flexibility of making cuts over a few days rather than renting.
