This saw comes dissassembled and I offer two tips for those following the assembly instructions: 1) although the directions don't indicate this, there is a front to both the grey base and the orange saw box and they must be attached in the proper orientation. Make sure the holes for the hooks that can hold the fence when not in use are on the left side of the base. (The front of the top should be clear.) 2) The bar that attaches the front wheels to the back is 1/2" to 5/8" too short. The result is that when the front wheels are in the full up position they can rotate about their vertical axis, but the back wheels are passed the vertical and part way down. This means you can roll the saw but the back wheels remain in a fixed position and can't pivot around their vertical axis because it isn't vertical. The fix is simple: a longer connecting bar, but I was grouchy having to figure this out and make the fix on a new saw.
One final criticism that applies to this saw and many other brands of table saws. Making sure the saw is exactly parallel to the fence is crucial both in getting accurate cuts and helping to minimize kickback. To facilitate this, the lateral adjustment of the saw trunnion should be very easy. On this saw and most (all?) of its competitors it's not easy, but with patience and a lot of trial and error it can be done. Fortunately, this precise adjustment is not needed often. However with some well placed adjustment screws, this procedure could be made much easier and more accurate.
With the relatively minor criticisms that I have listed, I am pleased with saw. I am a weekend woodworker and this allows me to make both accurate and precise cuts. Whether cutting wood for furniture or framing a wall, this saw, with the proper blades, can do a fine job. Much better precision than contractor saw, less expensive than a rigidly mounted table saw, it is one of the best saws of its class.
In THIS PRICE RANGE , this is a nice saw. I have no problems with the fence, it slides nice. It's like any other large tool, when you get it you might need to set it up a little or fine tune it. Same thing with my $7000 knee mill . My saw cut fine out of the box, but after reading all the reviews about the blade alignment problem, I checked mine and it was out 10 thousandths ....I loosened the trunion bolts a bit and bumped it over. Easy peasy...I have a youtube video on this , search Steves Mixed Bag ...many vids on it. Unless you're running a cabinetry shop, this saw is fine. If you're like me, a guy in a garage shop, then its great.
