High points: Cabinet-saw-like design: Large, sturdy trunnions, removable table for easy blade alignment, and enclosed cabinet for superior dust collection. Bevel stops adjust through the tabletop.…
Splitter/guard assembly mounts and dismounts with a few turns of a knob. The auxiliary fence face can move forward to support long workpieces or to serve as a crosscut gauge. Low points: Right-rip capacity of 25" is the smallest of the contractor-style saws. The large miter-gauge extension and its length stop require a hexhead wrench to adjust. More points: For $120 less, Craftsman model 22104 is the same saw except it has stamped-steel wings and lacks the auxiliary fence face, miter-gauge extension, and a dust port.
