China made, but assembled in my shop Texas
It is... what it is, made in China although I was concerned about reading the reviews that it was foreign made, the assembly was easier than what they said, but you will need a long afternoon and not just one six pack, but two. Follow the directions about the alignments, are just go on line and search "tablesawalignment". Buy a good quality 60 or 80 tooth blade and you will be better off than using the one that comes with it. Oh did I mention that was 2 six packs for assembly?

DO NOT BUY, this saw is DANGEROUS and cannot be adjusted properly
After hours of careful setup and assembly, this saw is a real lemon. The parallelism of the blade to the miter slots changes with the height of the blade. This problem cannot be adjusted. Also the miter slots are different sizes. I made a jig that works great in the left slot but when i tried it in the right the miter bar would not even fit in the slot. Last and worst of all is the fence. HOURS spent trying to set it up correctly then rip about 30 ft of 3/4 oak. 1st cut=1.5 inches, last cut =1.625 inches. And I never touched the fence once. Even a tiny adjustment tighter on the adjustment nut and the fence is too stiff to even slide. Oh also the blade that comes with the saw was WARPED. It would not cut worth a **** so I put a micrometer on it and it was over .015 of an inch different when spinning the blade. All of these things are a deal breaker for me and I think ************** builds more solid tools....I mean toys. This is not a pro tool. It is a DANGEROUS anchor.

Great home shop saw

For projects around the house this saw works great. Should be easier to setup but when that is done it works well. Its has really big boxes if you don't have a pick up truck think about having it delivered.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Table Saw For the DIY'ers

I have owned this saw for about 6 months now. I was pleasantly surprised with the sturdy base and minimal vibration when the saw is running. The casters make moving the saw a breeze. I don't have a dedicated shop so having my machinery on wheels is a must. Assembly is reasonably easy if you read and follow the directions. There are times that you will need assistance such as unpacking the saw and setting the saw upright. The installation of the fence rails on the outboard side of the saw can be tricky due to limited space to get washers, nuts and wrenches. My advice is to be patient and know most similar saw from other manufacturers has the same issue. The fence is higher quality than I expected. It moves smoothly across the table, is elevated from the table and locks firmly in place. I did have to shim the fence to get it parallel to the miter slot. My fence was far enough out that the limited fine adjustment was not enough. With a little work my fence is within .005 inches over its length. Out of the box the blade was parallel to the miter slot (within .002 side to side and as the blade is raised). I had read other reviews indicating that this could be a problem, however I did not find this to be the case. My advice is to purchase a saw gauge, or make one like I did to take these measurements. It is critical to make sure everything is aligned before operating the saw (this is no different from any saw you would purchase). The miter gauge is adequate for cross cutting small stock. It is not adequate if you want to cut accurate angles. Again, this is pretty much true for all stock miter gauges. I have since replaced the miter gauge with an after market miter gauge. The in closed base helps keep the dust down. I have not hooked this saw up to a dust collector but I plan on doing so in the future. Know that you need to clean out the dust box after use. Saw dust tends to build up inside the cabinet (standard good main thence practice ). I will admit that having to remove six hex screws to do this is a bit tedious. I will replace the hex screws with something a bit move convenient in the future. Overall, a great saw for the wood worker that has space limitations. I am pleased with my purchase.

Nice little saw for the money

Wanting a small, portable saw that would handle ripping 2x4s and basic job site work, this was a great buy. The base is really heavy duty and the saw has handled the work thrown at it easily, even in 104 degree temperatures sitting outside in the heat and dust.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Just got this saw

The directions were pretty good, but there are some issues with the assembly. I think when you put the wheels on, it would be easier to put the axles on first, and the put the wheels on the axle. The blade was close enough, only off about .001. The fence was crooked, so I loosened the 2 alien head bolts on the top of the bar and got that aligned. The screws in the front only seem to tighten the fence to the rail. The blade insert was set to low, had to get longer 5mm bolts and add a shim. I checked the belt tension very early in the game. The miter gauge grooves in the table are wider on the left side than the right side, so the gauge is a little loose on the left. The whole assembly took about 5 hours and I have assembled several things over the years. It would seem that every saw is a little different! It's not a precision machine, but it could be close with a little more time spent on adjustments. I have not used it much yet, but seems to work well. I am happy so far! More later after I have used it longer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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".

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love it!!!!

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 would recommend this product to a friend.
