For some this is THE saw to have in your garage or workshop. Based off of the legendary Ry08i BT3100 model, the Craftsman Pro has the extended rip capacity, deadly accurate miter fence, and attached accessory table to use with most fixed based routers. Nearly all metal construction and solid stand make this a great throwback build quality with modern conveniences. A couple of upgrades to mention to make this saw the uber machine it has the potential to be: zero clearance insert, thin kerf Freud blade, shop vac with 2.5" hose for dust collection. Highly recommended if you can still find one out there.
Because space is a premium, I needed a saw that could expand to the size of a contractors saw, but at the same time be small enough after folding up to be placed out of the way when not in use. This saw fit the bill very nicely. It comes with very good assembly and operational instructions. The saw itself comes already attached to it's stand. The assembly required there afterwards is pretty straight forward and easily understood. The two outer tabletops slide along the rails to their desired distance very smoothly. Crosscutting can be achieved either by the use of the sliding miter table or with the traditional miter gauge. The router table is a nice plus and with the additional purchase of the Ryobi universal router plate, almost any router can fit it. The blade that is furnished is a general purpose one Since both crosscutting ripping operations can be done, the blade of choice should be a good quality master combination. I Really don't need to use the sliding miter table, as I already have both radial and sliding miter saws. But for ripping, this saw has proven to be exactly what I needed. As far as this saw not being accurate enough to build furniture or cabinets as stated in a previous review is completely false. Once set, as long as none of the screws are turned, it can be folded up and then opened back up without having to reset anything. It also comes with one traditional miter slot and one additional slot can be made by the operator simply by repossitioning the miter table. All in all, this is a very nice tool which I am completely satisfied with. And for what it's worth, I'm a retired cabinet and furniture builder with 40 years experience.

I've had this saw for about 5 years or so, and it is a necessity for me simply because shop space is extremely limited. The saw folds and unfolds easily and takes little space when folded. The manufacturer has been very clever (maybe a bit TOO clever) in providing numerous accessories and the saw has reasonable capacity for ripping and crosscutting. I done a number of tough projects with this saw in my tiny workshop, so it is possible to get the tool to work. However, I also agree with other users that alignment operations are very fiddly and the ultimate precision of this saw is mediocre at best. In addition, the rather flimsy construction allows the saw table and rails to deform quite easily under load, and to get good crosscuts I usually brace the rails by clamping the accessory table and rip fence on the same side as the sled. I also find that the use of aluminum for the table is quite a drawback since one cannot use magnetically attached accessories such as a magnetic featherboard, etc.. Finally, I have had significant durability problems with the saw, as the belts and main switch both failed prematurely. Replacing the belts is a particularly wonderful game for an afternoon when you do it the first time. Sears has NO instructions on how to do this, and most of us have figured out a process on our own (although I note that there is now a procedure posted on a blog somewhere).
I already have a professional table saw from sears, but it takes up a lot of space in my garage. I bought this one to replace the other one and free up space. Now I just have to find the courage to sale the old one. I love them both.
Easy to assemble and very intuitive. Love the wide rip lengths available and the portability. Quickly zipped through my OSB sheets to create perfect fitting walls for my detached garage. With a simple roller addition, I could handle the 4X8 sheets by myself. Can't wait to try the router table and do some angles.
i have a small one man woodshop, so space is limited. This saw is ideal for my new hobbie. woodworking is very relaxing and this table saw enhances the feeling. thanks for the precision design.
i picked this saw up the other day from sears and started using it to finish a cabinet i had already stared and with the slide table on the left side made it easy to cut the wood i need to make the drawers and cut the mortise the fence with a little adjustment is dead on just slide and lock smooth start up very nice saw
This is a wonderful saw in many ways. I really like the precision capable in all types of cutting scenarios. Throw in the portability / storability, and I would recommend weekend warriers consider this saw over any fixed-base type of saw. I've done a lot of cutting - trimming out a 2000 sq foot house - and look forward each time to the simple setup and operation. I also own a fixed Delta contractor table saw, a Sears radial arm saw, and a Sears sliding chop saw, but prefer this for almost all types of cutting scenarios.
