Review

Its sturdy aluminum rip fence held securely when locked with negligible deflection, and has an excellent magnifying cursor for its scale.
Its miter gauge has just three stops (all adjustable), and its miter bar has adjusters to snug up the fit in the miter slot. The arbor lock—imbedded into the cast-iron tabletop, so you don't have to stick both hands into the throat opening—makes one-wrench blade changes quick and easy. The stamped-steel wings provide adequate support, but we'd rather have the version with cast iron wings (it's a $150 upgrade). Its 110-volt motor performs as you'd expect from this type of saw: push it too hard and it will stall, but a steady pace keeps it cutting. It has a relatively small capacity for crosscuts (10-5/8") with the miter gauge resting on the tabletop. Although its cabinet does not extend fully to the floor, it is enclosed and provides respectable dust collection. The top-mounted trunnions prove more difficult to work with when aligning the blade with the top.
