Great little saw!

Review Summary

You cannot go wrong with this great little saw. Cuts very well, has enough power and is light weight enough so you can tote it anywhere you want. The stand is simple and strong. The only drawback is the fence, it doesn't clamp on square, you have to play around with it.

Not for fine woodworking.

Review Summary

This was an impulse buy. I am fairly happy with it because of the cost. However, if you plan on doing any type of fine woodworking where accuracy will make or break the product, this is not the saw for you. Let me start by saying that the stand is sturdy once you get all the legs sitting on the ground. It does have some wobble to it but supports the saw fairly well. The extendable table is nice but does take some playing with to get the measurement markers zeroed in.
Even then, double check the distance between the fence and blade. The standard "measure twice cut once" rule does not apply here. It is more like measure once, adjust, measure again, adjust some more, measure again, adjust once again, tap on the fence or table, measure again and then if you are comfortable with the setup, make your cut and hope for the best. Saw start up is loud and sounds like the motor and blade are going to come flying out of the cabinet. But once it gets going, it sounds like a circular saw. Probably the biggest complaint I have is the 90° and 45° stops. These were off from the factory and it took me a while to figure out how to adjust them and even then, it was a pain. There are a couple of screws by the adjusting knob. You rotate those which are attached to a concentric piece of plastic that makes the adjustment. I feel Ryobi failed with this design when most saws are bolts. Cutting is typical for this size, HP and price range. The mitre gauge does not fit snug in the table track at all. This allows for approx 1/8" worth of play. Why even have one if you're not going to design it right. The fence doesn't clamp up square either. It goes back to what I was saying earlier with measuring numerous times and then cutting. You also need to measure at the front of the blade and at the back of the blade. The saw will cut and it does what it needs to. Just make sure you double and triple check all setting before making cuts to minimize waste.
