Yeah, it sucks. I'm more upset about the mower than the saw, honestly.
It's not a total bust, I suppose. I recently bought a Bosch 4100 contractor saw, so I'll still be able to dimension stock. A buddy of mine used it once and had a board kick back, so now he's scared to use it. Got it for $300, and it's literally brand new. I added a zero clearance insert, a better blade, and tuned everything square, and it runs great.
Would've liked to of had a bandsaw, but oh well.
EDIT: As for the mower, it will go back to my dad. He has one that is a few years newer that he's completely restored. He'll dismantle it and keep it for parts.
