Does anyone has any experience for or concern with this saw? I been trying to find information but there is none so far that can help to identify quality wise the performance and accuracy of this saw. I see that is pretty much the same saw as the Craftsman model 21833, and this saw came with blade aligment issues, I wonder if that will be the same for this saw.

this is the link for the image of the TS

thks for your attention on this subject.

Jorge, it also looks incredibly like the Rigid R4512. Look that saw up on I think you will see the same saw in orange and gray.
Also, this site sells the Dayton saw.

There have been many reviews on the Rigid R4512 on this site as well as the 21833 which also is about the same, so much of what you want may be in those reviews.
I personally own the Rigid R4512, and have none of the blade problems reported, but there have been enough reported here that the problem exists for sure. Every product seems to come with some issues, so you have to make a decision on what is best for you.
Good luck!

if it’s like the 21833, skip the dayton and get the ridgid 4512. it’s the same saw as the 21833, it can be registered with ridgid for their lifetime service agreement (LSA) and, if you can find a HD that honors harbor freight’s “20% off any single item” coupon, you could get it for $400, plus tax.

AFAIK, these saws are all made by Dayton, but I can’t verify that. Also AFAIK, the alignment issues have been corrected, but I do have to wonder if all the defect stock of the Dayton brand saws has rotated through….I’m guessing they don’t sell as many as Ridgid or Craftsman.

We have several HomeDepots at Gdl, however they dont carry the same products as in USA, I saw the Ridgit one first but when talking to Ridgit locally they can’t import to Mexico that saw, that’s a shame! I’m still doing some additional reserch on other local tools store ans see if can get something else.

thks for your comments
