WOOD magazine review

Built-in mobile base

Review Summary

With a handy built-in mobile base, this saw moves easily around the shop when you need it to. Its cabinet-mounted trunnions provide easy top-to-blade alignment, and then help hold that alignment longer than top-mounted trunnions. And its hefty cast iron top and wings reduce vibration greatly and give you plenty of table surface. The rip fence locked solidly and exhibited no significant deflection, but it tended to catch on the joint where the split front rails meet.
The miter gauge is an average no-frills model that can be calibrated accurately; but ultimately we'd want to upgrade to a quality aftermarket gauge. The split blade guard worked okay, but could be improved. The splitter works as a riving knife when you remove the guard and antikickback pawls and lower it below the blade height. Dust collection was very good.
