WOOD magazine review

Bright green laser is easiest to see

Review Summary

+ Hits: Color-coded miter-scale markings help locate the most-used angles quickly, and it has a 60° miter detent on the right. We like its front-mounted bevel lock for easy access and its green laser for high visibility, especially in bright sunlight, where it beats all red lasers. – Misses: Wide cutouts in the fence allow tall workpieces to tip backward when cutting. Without a detent override, its lever-type miter lock doesn’t hold securely on the cusp of a miter detent.
We found the plunge and slide actions, as well as the table pivot, stiff. It does not include table extensions.
