Default Kobalt saw

Hi, I'm Denny, avid woodworker and small woodworking business owner in northeastern Ohio. What is the word on the Kolbalt 10" sliding compound mitre saw. Has anybody put one through the paces to see how it holds up? I have a Delta 10" mitre saw and a old Dewalt radial arm saw that is on it's last legs. I'm looking into a sliding saw but don't have a large budget because of some major tool purchases recently.I would appreciate any feedback!!!

Have you explored putting new seals and bearings in the Radio Alarm Saw? I doubt that parts would be available from Dewalt but the wear parts should be stock bearing supply house product.

Hi denny

Off point by just a bit but I could use the power switch off the RAS if you are going to dump it.. by the way the bearings and seals are very spec. you will not find them I know I have tried many times my bearings should be replace but it keeps on running.
