Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS SAW! This saw replaced my Dewalt 12" fixed miter saw and it falls far short of the dewalt. Look closely at the cutting capacity both vertical and flat and you will see what I mean. I can no longer put 5-1/4" base standing against the fnce and cut it. The bevel is only 0 to 45..
Summary: I use this saw for cutting oak trim and cabinet work. Stable and rigid out of the box. Bought it because of the reviews. The reviews were right! Far better than my similar 12" DeWalt. Makes perfect miters in 3/4" Oak
Summary: Right out of the box it was ready to go. Very good accuracy and well balanced. However, changing the blade is cumbersome and an iimprovement to the access cover to the blade shaft nut could be made.
Solid saw and light enough to easily carry outside

Summary: I've used this saw during some major house renovations. The saw works great, for the money it would be hard to find a more solid saw. The bevel gauge does not have positive stops but the miter gauge does for most major angles.
Summary: Wonderful saw, light weight, cuts wonderful, right out of the box. Have older 9 inch chop saw that will be used for cutting fire-wood for smoker know, since new addition. We'll be looking forward to, doing a lot more projects around house. Quality was beyond, what I expected.
