For anyone that doesnt have a dedicated shop space this saw is great. I have to set up and tear down my shop every weekend and this is the perfect table saw for me.
Cuts everything I have thrown at it so far. Mostly Poplar, Maple, and Ply.
Saw came perfectly set up out of the box
Fence is solid and mitre gauge works well
T-slots are nice as these parts can be upgraded if necessary
Easy to clean – Just stand it up and vac bottom
Very easy to set up and tear down
No riving knife
Blade guard is wobbly – I only use for large rip cuts
Even with shop-vac hooked up, still a bit dusty. You’ll need to modify (aka break off the vertical slots on dust port). I guess this is safety part so a large chunk doesnt shoot out w/o dust collector hooked up.
Turning off in urgent situation is awkward. No real way to hit it with knee.
Overall, this was a great purchase.
