I'm on the fence (ha-ha) on this one, wondered if the folks who've purchased one have any feedback on them yet.
Thanks for any info-
Hi Bob, only had it for about a week so haven't had a chance to really wring it out.
Was good to go out of the box except the bevel. Wasn't out much but enough. Easy adjustment but not overly impressed with the locknuts used to lock the adjustment in. Not enough headroom around them to get a good bite with a wrench to lock it down and with a socket, you can't hold the adjustment and tighten the lock nut. Will probably grind down a 13mm wrench to get in there.
Machine is very light, needs to be bolted down for sure.
I've got a new blade on order, hanging on to this one for construction type work but this one is definately not a finish or trim blade.
Almost everything on it uses a 6mm hex wrench but they didn't provide a place to store the thing. I like to keep that kind of stuff with the tool so I epoxied a couple of rare earth magnets to the back of the fence.
I haven't got a lot of faith in lasers anyway so haven't checked that out other than it lights up.
The slide seems to have a bit of resistance. I'm not that familiar with sliders (this is my first) so I don't know if that's good or bad. It's not a feather pull like the Ryobi on display at my local HD.
Right now I'm in the process of building a mobile table for it so it's just sitting on the floor of the shop until that's done. So far it looks like a good deal. I thought a real padlock to lockout power switch was a nice touch.
