Review

High Points: ↑ At 42-1/4", its rip fence is longest in a test of nine tablesaws. ↑ Shark-fin-style riving knife swaps easily with blade guard.
You can also buy a thin-kerf riving knife (#657-21T, $85). Low Points: ↓ It does not come with a power cord or blade. ↓ The aluminum blade guard blocked our view of the blade. ↓ Difficult blade changes: At 3-1/2", its throat opening is narrowest in the test. It also requires two wrenches to change blades, but only comes with one. More Points: → Although the rip-fence scale proved accurate, its clear plastic indicator has a noncolored, scribed hairline cursor that’s difficult to read. → Blade-guard assembly features a tool-free quick-release, but it’s tough to access because the throat insert can’t be removed before the splitter.
