So I bought this Craftsman contractor saw about 2 yrs ago now (model #21805) and it has been one heck of a little saw for me. I can’t afford much else and so far hasn’t let me down. I did notice though that Craftsman decided that they were going to be special and make the miter gauge slots narrower than any other saw in the world and add little tabs. I guess those are nice for on the go people but to me they are very annoying and make it very difficult to make any jigs or sleds for my saw. The other day I finally had enough and pulled out my files and went to town. Thankfully the top is made from aluminum so I didnt have to break to much of a sweat to get rid of them. Atleast now I can slide a full piece of wood through them (5/8”). Next step, figure out how to make a zero clearance insert.
