I have (6 mo.s) the top end Sears contractor saw (hybrid). I think its the one your talking about. I had the alignment issues. I had to remove the rear trunnion and have the holes elongated to facilitate getting enough movement to align the blade. Getting to the trunnion cap screws is a real trip. Use hex key sockets with an extension bar. The tab at the rear end of the fence snapped the first time I used the saw. Same machinist made me a new one. He said the metal they used was too brittle. The directions are totally useless. Just look at the pictures and do the best you can. I didn’t have any parts left over. The saw is very heavy, you will need help turning it right side up after assembly.
All that said- I have built $30K in cabinets with the saw. Once you get it tuned up, for the money you can’t beat it.
