Anyone have any insight or hands on experience with this company? Was looking online at their “Stallion” line of table saws.

Any one laid hands on one?

Maybe it’s just the color, but it looks a bit like a sawstop. Seems to be a wel appointed tool at a not terribly unreasonable price. Perhaps knotscott will chime in with some comments.

That’s a new brand to me….dunno a thing about them, but that Stallion saw looks cool. There’s no manual online to peek at, but it looks like the blade height adjustment is done with a vertical screw. The heavy duty base is a good sign that they were aiming to be a “cut above”, and I like the 12” solid cast wings, as well as the fence. 5 year warranty and $1900 price tag put it roughly in competition with the Jet Xacta, Baileigh, and Laguna Platinum. First impression is favorable from their online literature.

The saws with dovetailed ways for the height adjustment
maintain a more consisted centerline at different blade
heights. It’s a useful feature the old INCA cabinet
saws have as well. Grizzly sells a saw with the feature
as does Laguna.

...looks a bit like the new Powermatics.

Last time I was at Canadian Woodworker the salesman told me there CWI equipment is made in the same factory as General International. He said they began switching to the own products after having difficulty getting equipment from General International. Sounded as though GI was running into some financial difficulties. Also, he mentioned the quality of GI products had gone down significantly. I’ve never used the Stallion table
Saw but I do own the CWI Scorpion 6” jointer and its an all around great piece of equipment. Definitely wouldn’t hesitate to buy any other CWI equipment.

After sifting through all the superlatives and puffery (strength, grace, aggression, unbridled, champion, etc.), it does sound like a solid saw. But most, if not all, of its attributes are characteristic of most true cabinet saws, except for the cast iron base, found, as far as I know, only on older Unisaws.
