Just been snooping the net for anyone who has one of these saws and their thoughts on it. I can get a pretty good deal on a bared used one, which will probably snap up for it does look like a good saw. Just curious about others experiences.

I haven’t heard to many good reviews on anything “Craftex”. I have a General 50-200R. While it’s kind of an entry level cabinet saw, I’m quite happy with it.

This what I have found searching a Canadian woodworking site:
This model is discontinued.non-magnetic switch.lighter in mass than a 3hp cabinet saw,is a hybrid cabinet, is relatively inexpensive, has mobile base.only 31” cut capacity to right of blade;
There is no riving knife on the CT104.,,2 HP,align a rip fence.has the built in dust collection. .

What Canadian site was it Ken? I visit a few and handn’t found anything.
The saw I seen had a riving knife built into the blade guard, the align a rip fence was dead on straight and the 30 inch rip to the right was enough for me, since I get sheets cut down at the store.
