I'm not getting the electronic model. It sold last night. I went to an auction tonight and bought just a regular one that is really clean. Got home and it started raining so I covered it up and didn't have time to really check it out. That's tomorrow. $75, so I didn't think I could go wrong for that.
Congrats on getting a ras. I've owned 4-5 models of CM ras's. The older ones were decent. Not as good as a few other brands, but decent. Every now and then check the cut. The ras has a lot of adjustments to make initially. Be sure to get them right, and you will be rewarded.
It's not just getting the blade 90 deg. to the fence!
Be sure not to knock into the arm. I don't remembering doing that to one of my CM ras's, when I had it, but all of a sudden it had slop in the arm lock. There is a round forked piece, deep in the arm, that can get spread apart, and prevent locking solid. It's easy to fix. Pound it back together. It's a bitch to get the part out. And worse to get it back in!
Tuned up right and you will like using it. Be sure to use a negative tooth blade to prevent self feeding/stalling, putting a lot of stress on the arm.
Controlling the feed (holding back, as well as pulling) is important. Some industrial saws have a return spring. You can hook a bungi cord on the the motor as a return. It helps a lot in controlling the feed. A pulley with a weight would also work.
