Positive Customer Reviews
Solid small hobby type machine. Comes packed perfectly, no missing or faulty parts. Fence is good for this price. No zero clearance slot available so dado's are tricky. Over all a winner
This is a well made table saw. For the price it is a great value.
Great table saw, perfect for many projects. Good power with 13 amps behind the 10 inch blade. Works great for household use and light field duty as well.
Negative Customer Reviews
Found overall quality poor, especially the accesories. Guide was tricky to clamp doen with any accuracy, blade vibration from the very start and in general, the product not worthy of tne namesake.
I bought this entry level saw for a simple, quick job. However I've already spent over 2 hours trying to put it together. It has what has to be the worst assembly instructions I have ever encountered.
