What Buyers Thought of Their Purchase?

One buyer summed it up like this:

I’m a professional finish carpenter. I bought one of these as I was fed up with transporting a bigger saw and I have found that it has sufficient capacity for nearly all of my projects. The blade and laser were set up dead true out of the box and in the six months I have been using it have not gone out of true. The blade is good and the machine is light and accurate.

All of the buyers commented on the accuracy of this compact saw. For the money they paid, they believe this one to be very good value for money. You can read more reviews by clicking here.
