Its a nice looking saw, it will be interesting to hear how it holds up over time. Thanks for posting this.

I like the paint scheme. How does it cut, and what blade are you using?

So far I love this saw, cuts excellent… I’m using a CMT general use 42 tooth, full kerf blade. I know it’s a bit course but it’s working great, I use for a everything.

The lift crank squeaks and squeals a bit when I crank it down… not sure how to lube that?

The fence is top notch, super accurate. The saw is smooth running and really is everything I want or need in a saw. I’m really happy with it.

Try graphite or graphite spray to lubricate the friction points. Graphite won’t attract dust, it can make a mess of whatever you spray it on.
