I would have to agree with that assessment. I've had 3 Craftsman RASs and have sold them all. In my experience, if they're not old enough, they're very hard to adjust and keep aligned.The newer Craftsman radial saws seem to be priced all over the map around me, I've seen them for $150 up to about $400. Always wondered if anybody ever sold one if them. It might be worth a gamble for $50, but personally I would pass it up.
