High points: The 45° miter stops proved dead-on right out of the box in our 8-miter frame-cutting test. This saw had the smoothest miter and bevel adjustments in the test.…
It was the only saw without annoying “throw” (upward and downward lurching) at motor start-up and stop. Extension wings support workpieces 19" from each side of the blade and tighten with thumbscrews. Low points: The bevel stop system won’t allow angles beyond 45° without resetting the stop. You have to recalibrate it to establish the 45° stop again. The blade guard would not stay retracted when changing blades, making it more difficult.
