Reader Reviews

Great saw

Review Summary

This is a great saw. It has some very nice features like cast iron wheels and trunnion, large table, great fence, 2hp, and 12" of resaw. Mine is super smooth running. I can balance a nickle on the table while it is running. The fit and finish is very good. The only thing I can fault the saw on is the plastic handles and hand wheels. I am slowly swapping them out for metal ones.
