Chris mentioned the lifetime warranty. To get it with the fewest problems, save the original bar code which is on the box as well as the receipt when you buy it. You can use copies of the receipt, but they really want the original bar code cut out of the box. I sent mine in with a cover letter stating the date of purchase, where bought, model of saw, serial number, as well as the fact that I was including copies of the receipt and the original bar code. It took about 6 weeks before it showed up on the web site, and a full three months before I got my ID card needed for the repair centers. Never have needed the warranty yet, but others have, so it is wise to apply for it.

I have really put mine through the paces, cutting white oak, walnut, and tons of pine. This includes resawing at the full height of the blade and cutting 2 1/4” white oak and walnut with a 60 tooth full kerf blade. I think it is probably the best 120v saw you can buy (it can be rewired for 220). It is not a 3 hp cabinet saw and does not purport itself to be, but is a good saw for the DIYr building cabinets, tables, fine furniture, etc.

Just for info, for the thick resawing, I went with a 50 tooth Freud full kerf combination blade, as the stock thin kerf blade would not hack it. The saw could, but the blade was lacking. (I now have a bandsaw, so no longer have the problem. I guess you can see where this purchase will lead you down a slippery slope!!)
