Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 81reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Glide Mechanism seems to be twisted When I set the blade to 90 degrees using a machinist's combo square, I will get burning on the left side of the cut and friction marks on the blade. The blade is square to the table but it moves from right to left as the cut is made.Next I used a dial indicator mounted to the blade with a square on the table and adjusted the miter setting so the blade would sweep down at 90 degrees. Then I checked the blade and found it to be out of square by about 3 degrees.I haven't found any information on adjusting the throw of the glide mechanism.I believe the problem is with the glide mechanism, though I don't see any stress marks or other damage in the glide linkage.I like the idea of the glide mechanism and that it can be pushed right up against the wall. However, as it stands, this miter saw is not suitable for precision cuts. August 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great for small shop I bought this saw a few months back and it is perfect for my small shop. With a few minor adjustments out of the box I was making straight cuts in no time. With my small hobby shop, space is a premium and with the glide design I am able to put this saw right up against the wall. The only thing that I have decided that could make this saw better is if it had a built in light so that you can see the pencil marks better in dim lighted rooms. June 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by NICE! I am glad I waited in purchasing a sliding compound miter saw. The biggest selling point was that it fits on my 24" standard depth workbench without poking into the wall with rail systems of other saws. May 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw, needs a dual laser feature I love this saw. The axial glide arm is effortless to use. It was dead on accurate out of the box. My only wish is that it had a dual laser line for making super accurate cuts on crown molding. I would love to see a laser attachment that wasn't a washer. ...oh, and make it one of those really bright green lasers for us "old foggies." May 6, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Less Than Expected I purchased this saw after several months of research. I chose this saw based on overall reviews and price. Once I had the saw home, I set about checking calibration. I was very disappointed to find that the calibration was not right. If this was set before shipping, then that saw must have a had a rough journey reaching the store. The next issue was with the dust collection. There is a dust collector on the saw, but I am not sure what it really collects. After a couple trips to the store to find adapters so that I could hook a shop vacuum to the collector, I thought the collection problem would be solved. That was not the case. I saw very little difference in the amount of dust collected. February 5, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by What? No Laser Great design, however I would expected there to be a laser or an add on accessory laser available. For this design and price point, I would have spent a little more just for a laser guide February 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love that it fits up against the wall. This could be the very best saw money can buy. Up front controls, easy to adjust, built in extension wings and very accurate. The axial glide is tremendous. However, the lack of a built in laser or LED blade shadow light, the only real drawback with this saw, makes spending the extra money hard to justify. And the extra cost "blade laser washer" is a waste of money, indoors or out as it is only good on the left side of the blade and very dim. December 22, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor 1500 watt motor, Laser no good found in a luckybag I think July 31, 2014
