I have this saw:
I read a posting here mentioning that this saw can resaw 3 1/2” Oak.
I tried cutting 3/8” thick plywood, and the saw had troubles. I replaced the blade, and it cut a lot better, but almost came to grinding halt when I tried to cut a 2×4 (on the flat side).
I spent a lot of time setting up the saw when I changed to the new blade.
I was just trying a straight cut, pushing along a fence, when the motor would slow down.
I would like to cut out electric guitar bodies (a lot of curve cuts on 1 3/4” thick hardwood), but this saw ain’t gonna cut it… I can’t see it cutting purple heart, oak or even cherry after the saw’s performance on a softwood cedar 2×4.
