WOOD magazine review

Riving knife cabinet saw for a respectable price

Review Summary

High Points: ↑ Its rip-fence scale with magnified red hairline cursor proved easiest to read and use. ↑ Built-in storage drawer holds blades and other accessories. Low Points: ↓ It does not come with a power cord or blade. ↓ The splitter/knife stands higher than the blade, and so it must be removed for partial-depth cuts, such as rabbets and tenons. An optional riving knife costs $30–$40. ↓ The miter gauge fits sloppily in the miter slot and includes no adjustment.
↓ We were unable to activate the small “off” switch with a leg bump. More Points: → To change blades, you must first remove the blade guard and pawls to remove the throat insert. → An arbor lock makes for one-wrench blade changes.
