This table saw is AWESOME. I have had and still do a radial arm saw and a smaller bench top 10" table saw. I was making drawers for my kitchen cabinets and just could not get the accuracy OR had problems if cutting large stock (on radial arm saw). So either or. I started looking for a better/larger table saw and they are plentiful for 1000$ and up. I got this on sale for less than 1/2 that. I discovered the following: If you take your time, you can set this saw up so that it is very very accurate. It makes nice square cuts, and doesn't have heeling, kickbacks or other issues. The dust system is very simple, in fact, it works so well I disconnected it from my dust collector. The saw dust falls straight down into a funnel in the bottom I put a bucket under it and when its full, it goes in the compost pile or garden. The dust collector did only slightly better, but its noisy. This leads me to my one minor complaint and that is even with a dust collector (vacuum to clarify) lots of saw dust collects on table and work. Some expensive saws have system that comes down through blade guard etc, whatever. I just keep a little shop brush handy and brush down through blade, (then down into my bucket). The vacuum didn't get any of top dust, so I unhooked. The saw is powerful, and the table large enough to do sheet of plywood (with effort) but I had NO CHANCE to ever consider that. I couldn't cut anything more than about 18" because radial arm would not extend that far out and little table saw fence only went to about 15-16" This saw does it all, dado, large stock, accurate cuts, and power. I love it and for the price? WOW what are you going to suggest in place of it for under 500? There is NOTHING. This is an excellent value and an excellent saw. If you are thinking of stepping up to a bigger better saw? GO FOR IT. Disregard some of the reviews, some people compare this to a 3500 cabinet saw and thats ridiculous. For the price you cannot beat this and even saws costing 1000$ dont always compete. Its a great buy and a great saw. I love it. Best purchase I ever made, my woodworking has improved 100% and the scope and kinds of projects are now limited only by my improving skill and time available. I can do anything I need to do with this saw. Definitely a "5".
Comes in a million pieces. Be sure to have enough time in order to get it put together. Very sturdy. The fence works really good and keeps the boards straight. Nice quality and works great.
This saw is what I wanted and expected. At almost 300 lbs it is a bit of a beast, but it works well. I would have given it 5 stars, except the fence is way off and I cannot adjust it. The run out was more than 3/16 of an inch. but by the time you try to adjust the fence, you are clamped tight to the rail and cannot move the fence. Alignment was not a problem as the saw came preadjusted and using my dial indicator was impressed with the setup. . Power of this machine is nice. I work with Black walnut and cypress woods and this saw cut both with ease. There is no vibration, and saw noise is greatly reduced. By the way, my old saw was probably a 75 year old Craftsman contractor saw, all cast iron with an external motor. I have rebuilt it twice and it's on its second motor. It also is on its second blade arbor and a month ago, the blade developed a slight wobble. Sign that it was loosing a bearing again. Enough was enough. Because my shop is small and after research, I got this saw for $450.00 It moves around easily, perfect for my shop. Was worth the buy and I'll warranty the new fence today.
I did not experience any of the alignment issues I've seen in other reviews. I was going to get the Ridgid. Both Ridgid and Craftsman saws are made by Dayton (I believe). But I got the sears on sale, less than the Ridgid, and the Craftmans is 15amp compared to Ridgid's 13amp. The only reason I did not give it 5 is because they included a warped saw blade and the instructions left a lot to be desired. I took it out of my truck piece by piece because I did not have anyone to help. I took my time to assemble the saw and was able to lift it up. This is a great saw for the home workshop.
The moter that powers the saw is not large enough. I could not ripe a inch pine board with out stoping to let the motor chatch up. This did not happen on my old model 113.342691 Ceaftman saw with th same electral power supply. I wish I could buy a new cable drive for my old saw. How can you make me happy with this purchase?
Very pleased with the saw. My prior saw ($200) did not last long. The craftsman seems to be a great option for the average weekend warrior.
I'm a third generation furniture maker that builds fine furniture and cabinets for a living. While i have a much more expensive cabinet saw in my shop, i purchased the Craftsman contractor saw to take to larger job sites that i may need to custom fit built in banister bookcases and such. it is a little heavy to move around but the casters do a good job, and i'm fortunate enough to have an enclosed trailer with a ramp, so it moves around easy enough. it would do well in a garage workshop that it needed to be moved often. I had no alignment issues, it did need to be adjusted to be true, but was not difficult to align. I can see by the mechanics that there COULD be an alignment issue with blade elevation, but mine does not have that issue. As for the assembly, it is not bad at all. It took me about 2 hours and i was able to upright it afterwords with the help from my 11 yo son (who weighTs 90 pounds on a good day) so it's not bad. I did spend another couple of hours casually fiddling with adjustments to make it perfect. i was a little skeptical of the rip fence at first, but after adjusting it, it works great. The motor is smooth and more than powerful, at 1.75 horsepower. I suspect the reviews that cannot cut through plywood either have a junk blade, or did not check the belt tension. I run mine off of 120 since i move it around, and it has plenty of power. Today i ripped some very hard maple with no problems, it cut through like butter and had a nice edge (although i still clean the cut edge on a jointer) Worst part of the saw really is the assembly of the rip fence guide rails, but it's not too bad, you just have to be patient and understand the mechanics of how a machine works. Since i paid 450 bucks, it is a world away from those plastic portable models that simply cannot do the job, but it is not a professional cabinet saw, so don't buy it expecting it to be.

After reading many reviews on this saw, and not being very happy with a few of my recent Craftsman purchases (9" band saw and circular saw), I was hesitant to buy this table saw. I was concerned mostly about the alignment issue that is pervasive in this model (including the Ridgid r4512). But, they must have corrected that, because mine is perfect throughout the height adjustment range. Assembly was really not that bad...although the box is really heavy. The saw works flawlessly...very quite, minimal vibration, accurate fence, mobile base, flat table. For the price, I don't believe there is a better table saw.
