After reading some of the reviews here, it appears no one has had to work on this thing. After a year of sparse light use, the lever pad broke. Not an expensive part ($4) and made of PLASTIC, but it is a huge pain to replace. Next the fence began to bind up when ripping. Again, another piece of plastic on the ripfence had broke. Easy repair, though. Yeah this thing is probably a good value for the $200 I spent on it, but I sold off my other table saw (which cost me $35 used and never had a problem with) so that I could get a new saw and now I am having bigger problems with it. Next, was the exit chute. While ripping some 1" pine, the scraps tried to exit out and the next thing I know there is a huge piece of PLASTIC lying on the ground. Seriously??? It is pure plastic garbage and even for those of you who may only use it for light work (like me) you would be better off spending a few more dollars for a quality product. I sold this one at a yard sale for 1/2 of what I paid for it.

Great saw for the amateur wood worker with one excepting. The miter gauge is flimsy plastic and completely useless. Pros are portable with places to store accessories. Easy setup and easy to store.
I bought this saw to do a couple of medium size projects around the house. This table saw is easy to move around, has plenty of power to cut through oak. Setup was easy.
I needed a table saw to install the pergo flooring in the upstairs bedroom. This saw worked great! Reviews I read had complaints about how cheap or flimsy the stand is--I found it sturdy and easy to use. I am not a contractor--just a DIY kind of guy and this is a great saw, at a great value to have around for DIY home projects.
Saw has worked great as a beginner's saw. I've built 2 bookshelves and cabinet doors for an in-wall entertainment center. I really have no complaints. But today I was using the plastic push stick that it came with and the blade hit the stick. The stick shattered in my hand and felt like someone hit me in the hand with a baseball bat. I am definitely going to use wooden sticks from now on. But there is a place holder on the saw for the stick, and I can't find a replacement on the web. Maybe Craftsman will read this and send me one! Also, remeasure before you cut, the fence will be about a hair off.Other than that, the saw is worth the money, and so-so accurate, for a beginner saw.

The miter track is an odd ball size of 5/8 inch instead of the standard 3/4. You can't find an accurate miter gauge either from Sears or another company, like Incra, because of this oddball size. The miter gauge that comes with this saw is useless; you can't make anything with mitered corners such as picture frames. I'll never buy Craftsman again after this experience.
The saw itself is very good. However, I couldn't get the legs together and ended up trashing them and purchasing a separate saw stand with wheels from Sears for $100.00. The rip fence is pretty good for such an inexpensive saw and it cuts pretty accurately. This is not the saw for you if you are a professional. However, if you need to rip 4,6, or 8 inch boards, it will do the job. You may be better at putting together really cheap legs, and they might work for you. When the legs wouldn't go together, I tried to back the screws out and start over but they stripped and wouldn't move. Cheap legs, cheap screws, but good saw. I would give this saw a 4 if the legs were better quality.
