Well, you can’t loose money on it. That saw is on the recall list, so if you buy it and don’t like it they give you your $100 back. That said, it is considered one of the “better” C’man RAS by a lot of folks (not me). The Craftsman saws can generally be set at 90ยบ, and if you don’t swing the arm it should give you accurate cuts. A better choice would be one of the Older Dewalt or Delta turret arm RAS, which also usually show up (not as often as the Craftsman) for the same price. They can be tuned and give precise cuts and miters. But liek I said, you won’t loose any money on that one, so it may be worth giving a try. I’m not totally sure about the DP part, if you’re thinking an RAS can substitute for it you will be (I think) woefully disappointed).
