* mostly functional right out of the box (with a few adjustments)
* design looks good,everything seems easy to reach
* base and frame seem adequately solid
* all the adjustments seem to be functional, even if
flimsy or rough-feeling
* gear-driven blade guide arm is a nice touch.
* basically everything is very light-duty and has a thin,
flexible feel to it, including the table. I had to put
washers under one side of the table and change the mounting
bolts to get the table square to the blade - the fence and
miter gauge also have quite a bit of 'slop'.
* table angle pinion and rack gears feel rough, and it didn't
go far enough to get the table square with the blade (see above)!
* the fence is super cheesy and lightweight. You have to eyeball it
to make it straight (the stripes on the table help), but then
again you could also just clamp a board onto the table!
* wheels seem VERY light duty - not quite true(out of the box the upper one was
scraping slightly on the frame, which went away with a little adjustment).
I can't imagine putting any wider blade on for rip cuts, without things
flexing too much.
* The blade guide surrounds the blade and obscures the cut, unless
you have it mounted at a ridiculous height (eye level!), or bend down to look
I don't really have any comment about the laser, as I don't use it -
however, its pretty wobbly where its attached inside the case, so good luck getting it
to stay in the same position over a long period of time. One more thing that
could be nice with a little modification.
Overall, I think this would probably be OK for very light-duty, craft-type work
on thin material. . .
I would have rated this 3 stars if I hadn't gone to Harbor Freight and seen a
very similar 9" saw that seems much better implemented (single speed, but motor
looks more solid, table and angle mechanism MUCH more solid and smooth. Also has
a toothed belt. No fence, but you could probably make something). Theirs is $119, but you
can find a 20% off coupon in the mailers or online, bringing it down under $100.
In retrospect I would have gone with this (probably with the extended warrantee).
Hope this helps.
The saw is made of cheap plastic and aluminum so getting the blade aligned is almost impossible and once you do finally get the blade pulleys aligned, the blade guides are useless. You cannot get them to line up with the blade without making the blade bind against the saw and stop the saw from running again.
Had I known, I would have paid double, maybe triple the price to avoid the troubles.
I think this is a great saw for the price if you are just getting started in wood working. If you are looking for something that is going to be really accurate right out of the box you are going to have to spend a little (or a lot) more.
