I have had the 10” for a couple years. Had to return the first one due to varies defects, exchange was no problem and checked replacement before leaving the store. Had to remove the fence and file one slot to square it to the blade. The preset angles didn’t lock in that good and ended up filing the slots so the bar would lock in deeper(it was like the pointed rod was 1/4” dia. and the slots were 1/8”).
Dust collection bag is useless. Blade is ok for rough cutting. Replaced it with an 60 tooth negative hook. Most of the time I cut 1/16” longer and then skim cut it or finish it using sled on the table saw.
As noted by 12strings, setup other than vertical is a PITA.
Other than that, i’ve had no problems with it and have been looking at upgrading to the 12” (just can’t justify it)
