WOOD magazine review

Granite top stops vibration

Review Summary

High Points: This model has a 2"-thick, perfectly flat and smooth solid-granite top that delivered best-in-test vibration dampening. The safety guard easily mounts and dismounts with no tools. You have two riving knives (tall/full kerf and short/thin kerf) to choose from when not using the blade guard. Its large off-switch was easy to reach and bump with a leg. The trunnions mount to the cabinet rather than the tabletop, making it easy to align the top to the blade.
At 84 decibels, it’s the quietest saw in the test of twelve. Low Points: It ranked among the least powerful saws in our test of 10 hybrids. More Points: The industrial rip fence locked solidly and slid smoothly, but exhibited the second most deflection (0.0097") in the test. You must leave the arbor washer off the arbor for dado widths greater than 11/16".
