    The lightest small compound i have ever owned, one draw is that the slide does not feel a sold as other small format saws that i have owned. So with that said i will see the longevity and accuracy that the saw will retian over time

    Bought this saw because I used one from a friend and i think its great , when doing 45s it just snaps in place. I have a 10" saw but the blade seems to wobble a little , this one is perfect

    I'm sorry I havnt had a chance to use the miter saw when I ordered it I was on the tail end of about 4,500 sq. ft. of installing hardwood flooring unfinished. I have had 2 of these saws over a period of 18 yrs.(both were stolen) and love each one I have high hopes this one will be as good. However, your service in getting the saw out tho there was a snowstorm in Atlanta at the time you still got the saw to me in an appropriate time frame. Thank you and I am looking forward to using the saw. Chris Finley (Finley's Wood Floors)

    This saw was a gift for my daughter to make frames for craft projects. The brand was recommended by a professional carpenter. The price and the service was good. My daughter is very pleased with this saw.

    Awsome saw! Great size with the capacity to get the job done with precision. I'm not one to give the top rating because there is always room to improve anything.

    This saw sucks! I didn't use it for several months, but when I finally put it together and used it on a job, I realized the fence and table are so far out of square with the blade and with each other that the saw is virtually useless. I threw it in a corner and haven't used it since. What a rip-off!!

    Great product. Better than the 10inch. Less bulk and less weight and less expensive to replace blades. Would recommend to any finish carpenter.
