Why? (I have one, and I love it, but it was very expensive.)

Because they are over priced and I have never cared for the way they cut, nor that they demand that you send them to them to be sharpened.

My main blade choice is Everlast. Followed by popular tools, FS, Royce Ayr, plus many more that no one has probably heard of.

All the 12" and 14" saw blades I use have a 1" bore. They are made by Bosch. Only once I had to enlarge the 25 mm bore of a blade with my die grinder to fit a saw. It is still working without any problem.

Keep thy axe sharp.

The more I look at the pictures of this saw, the more I like it.
I think $800 is a fair price for this saw.
A new $800 saw will not be as heavy duty as this saw. The sliding table is a very nice feature.
And the other accessories that come with this saw are all expensive to add later.
Hey, Iím ready to buy it myself.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Well, it's mine! Got it today, tuned it up, tightened, lubricated, and re-drilled what needed to be, and gave it a good cleaning. The only bad part was having to get it off the truck by myself!

Thanks to all for the info

You did good, and lucky you didn't hurt yourself unloading it, but I have been there done that new toy erases most of the pain

There is no app for experience

After youíve had the chance to use it a little, let us know how you like it.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
