I need to add to the list of issues, just in case anyone is thinking about buying this saw:

When I try to set the blade angle to 90, the wheel works smoothly until about 85 degrees, then I need to put
a lot of pressure on the wheel to force it to 90, then while the holding pressure, tighten the wheel lock. If I don’t do this procedure, when I manually check the blade it shows 85 degrees.

I can imagine that in the middle of a cut that this would loosen up.

I am calling Sears today.
