I have had this saw for sometime now and all I can say about it is for others not to buy one. I suppose my purchase of this is out of pure ignorance in serious wood working / hobby & crafting. I thought I knew tools since I had been a contractor for 30 years but boy O boy was I wrong.
First of all the miter gauge is an odd ball size which made building my table sled a real challenge. I also had a difficult time building a zero clearance dado blade insert for it because of the flanges and their different levels/heights made into the table itself. Then there is the short arbor which will not allow the use of all the blades/chippers in a normal dado set. after looking it said the arbor was 5/8” but it’s shorter than that.
Granted this is not a high end saw that costs $1,000 or more but come on, this is basic stuff in my minds eye.
The only advice I can offer to someone looking at one of these is DON’T buy it!!!!
