      A very good saw at a great price!
      This is really a very good saw. I have read all the reviews and; Yes it takes a while to assemble. And yes you will most likely need to true it to square. Plan on spending the better part of an afternoon and evening to get everything set up and adjusted. Start to finish took me about 5 hours (with a couple of coffee breaks worked in). Say about 4 hours if you go at it non-stop. Take your time with the adjustments and do them right. Tolerances have to be within the width of the kerf over the full carriage travel or the blade will bind. Once properly set up, the saw works very well. (On my saw the "Control-Cut" motor burned out after just a few cuts, but that does not prevent operating the saw in a conventional mode. Which I did for a week until Sears could get out to repair it.) The control cut actually is a very nice feature. This was my first experience with it. I found out that I liked it. (The Control-Cut unit has worked flawlessly following the repair.) I can ease the blade into the work, then just keep the trigger depressed and the blade advances automatically through the piece. The Control-Cut feature restrains the carriage and keeps the saw from jumping through the work. With a 40 tooth trim blade the cut is always very smooth. You don't have to use the Control-Cut feature but I think you will like it. (Works great on dadoes!) Once set up, the saw is fairly rigid. While moving it I did warp the fiberboard table a bit and had to readjust it after moving. This is not a portable device. Set it up and use it carefully and it will remain true. I have been using the saw daily now for a month and it is still true. 45's are spot on, (assuming you have adjusted true to 90), making miter cuts a piece of cake. In fact, the large table makes it handy to do all your measuring and layout right at the blade. (My Delta power miter saw has sat unused since I got this saw up and running.) I can do everything on the radial arm saw that I could on my power miter saw. (Of course the miter saw is portable and this radial arm saw really isn't.) The saw repeats fairly well. I have been ripping 3/4 in cabinet grade plywood down for built in cabinets and trim, and the measurements have all been very close. The laser track device is mounted on the arbor in place of the outboard washer. It works very well, making a bright sharp laser line on the outboard side of the kerf. I have found that if I place my cut line just to the inside edge of the laser I will get a perfect cut every time. And since the laser is mounted on the arbor with the blade, there are no adjustments to make on it and it cannot be knocked out of alignment from the blade. Nice feature. I think the best thing about a radial arm saw is using it to cut dadoes. Cabinet faces require a lot of dado cuts and it's a piece of cake on a radial arm saw. It just doesn't get any easier. This saw has a fairly deep arbor and the motor is strong enough to cut 3/4 in dadoes in hardwood. Setting the control cut at the slowest advance rate will ensure smooth splinter free dado cuts every time without bogging the motor. The handgrip is comfortable. The control-cut trigger pull is stiff but not unreasonable. Carriage travel is smooth. The motor is quiet far a 10in. saw, and while not as powerful as more expensive saws, it will do the job without complaint. For the money it would be hard to beat the Sears Craftsman radial arm saw. $750 gets you a saw that will satisfy most do-it-yourselfers and even many professionals. It does require a bit of set up, and initial adjustments can be tedious due to the absence of fine-adjustment screws. (All adjustments are made by loosening the yokes and clamps and slipping the parts to square them up. It works but takes longer to get everything just right. Anyway, you won't find screw adjusters on saws less than $1600 or so.) If you are setting up a home shop on a budget I suggest you get the Sears Craftsman 10in radial arm saw and the 10 in table saw. You can get both for less than the cost of a Delta radial arm saw. While the Delta is more rigid and certainly a quality tool, I can't say it cuts $1000 better than the Sears Craftsman. Save your money and get the Craftsman. Take your time setting it up and I believe it will serve you well.

      worst shop saw I have ever owned or used
      This is by far the worst shop saw I have ever owned or used. In 1978, I purchased a Craftsman 10? Radial Arm Saw and used it for 32 yrs. It was a very good saw, accurate and always held its alignments,this new saw (Model 22010), will not. The alignment must be readjusted every time the saw arm is bumped, moved or the cut angle changed. Sears sent a tech, under warranty, to repair the saw but the parts he needed are no longer available and no longer stocked by Sears. This saw has been misrepresented by Sears Craftsman ? The owner?s manual said I would get years of service out of this saw, it was deficient out of the box and couldn't make a year. It came with a one year repair warranty that Sears cannot honor because critical repair parts are no longer available for my less than a year old saw. Sears says no refund and no repair but I can trade for an identical saw with the same inherent problems. If you want a quality shop saw to build cabinets and/or furniture, look at somthing else.

      Not ver "Professional"y

      I purchased this saw to replace a 20 year old Sears Radial Arm Saw that served me well all those years. I was prepared for the set-up time required since I use this saw as part of my equipment inventory for making professional custom cabinets. I am usually very annul about making every specification set up as close to perfect as possible. After the appropriate assembly of this saw which takes about 2 hours from the time the box is open I started the set-up process. The 1st and most important step is to insure that all the play is removed from the arm to the column. This step is the basis for all other adjustments. This could not be accomplished on my unit. After playing with it for over 5 hours I gave up and called Sears service. The technician tried for additional 3 hours before giving up and thought it might be a casting or manufacturing problem. Parts were ordered that would have taken another month to repair. I called to get the unit replaced with a new one. The return was painless however, I still have to wait two weeks for the replacement. I paid for home delivery service to get the unit here faster but here it is a month later and I still don't have a working saw. The jury is still out pending the outcome of the new unit. I will update this review at that time. For a "Professional" saw that cost almost $1000, I was very disappointed in its quality and apparent instability of the adjustments.

      Junk

      It is beyond me how anyone could think this is a great saw. You would have to have bought your tools from *********. It is useless. It won't cut a square corner. The thing wobbles all over the table, the arm is sloppy and cannot be adjusted easily. The rails on the arm are not even parallel.

      The Real Deal

      This is a good high quality Radial Saw for the hobbyist on a limited budget. It replaced my 43 year old Black & Decker that I bought new in 1970. This Craftsman brought me into the space age by comparison. The saw did NOT come in proper adjusted. As shipped the adjustments were close - just not precise enough for me. Buy this saw if you want a good quality hobbyist saw - take the time to do a proper setup, and you'll be a ripping happy. Nifty

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Saws Perfect!

      I have had this saw for a few years about 4 works good you just have to spend time setting it up and make sure you tighten the alien's on the lift tight as you fell they won't strip out the threads then it works perfect. Its got plenty of power. but keep in mind BLADE is the factor in this,use the right blade for the job your doing. I even cut non Ferris metal with mine. Rips cross cut angled beveled hard woods, hold a line and will cut straight even after changing setups. Make sure you square is good the product setup guide shows you how to do this, I had an old square that was real bad I didn't know just how bad until I did this test. Needless to say in the trash it went. This is what everyone used before we had miter saws, and they worked then and do today. This is also safer to use for crosscut then a table saw.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Isn't the HP mislabeled?

      A tool that draws 13A at 110V can only be a 1.9 HP tool [much like my 25-yr old Craftsman table saw].

      I like it.

      Not sure it should be called Professional, but it is a good saw. It does require a bit of tweaking but it isn't too difficult and the instructions are pretty clear. It isn't Industrial grade but the price doesn't reflect that either. I have used it for home-type projects and it works fine for me.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      GREAT SAW

      Love this saw, very easy to change the saws angle for cutting miters. And I really love the cutting control so you can only pull the saw out so fast and that speed is adjustable and the saw will not come at you with this control unit.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
