I have always liked Craftsman brand tools..so when it came time to look for a table saw that is where I went. I caught this saw on sale and was able to spread the payments interest free over a year. Sale price was around $950. It lists for around $1100. The only thing I have added to it is a movable base. It is a very solid machine and took four guys to unload it from the trailer. It is a very strong smooth running saw. It came with a Biesemeyer fence system, which is a real gem. Nice heavy very accurate and easy to us. I did upgrade the blade because the blade that came with it didn’t last very long. Safety wise the off switch has a large paddle which i use to shut off machine with my knee so I can keep both hands on the wood.
I would highly recommend this saw to anyone who is looking for something in this price range.
