I did a search, and saw that some considered this saw, but could not find any comments from owners. This looks like a really nice saw, especially for $399. I really like the idea of a soft start motor and dual lasers. And it looks like it has good capacity for cutting nested crown (6”). I just wanted to see if anyone had opinions on this saw after owning for a while.
The other saw I am considering is the Hitachi C12RSH. This also looks like a very good value at $449, sometimes $399. My only complaints are that I would prefer two laser lines, one for each side of the blade, and I’d probably prefer a 10” blade, so I can share with my table saw. And although this is a 12” saw, I doubt it has better capacity for cutting nested crown based on blade clearance (might even be less). One nice thing I noticed was that the rails seemed to be a bit larger diameter than all of the other saws on display, and of course it can operate in a fixed rail mode.
Anybody got an opinion on either of these? Thanks
