First thing the air/gravity thing is worthless. Upon first use the blade hits so hard it jambs and even with the feed running at crawl this happens. The fix is to add a set of springs to counter balance the arm. Once that was done the unit works just fine. I use it a lot and so far I am very pleased (after the mandatory fix)
The angle cut is very handy and fast to change and I extended the stop gauge rods to 30 inched each way so multiple cuts are accurate and easy.
As with almost all China made products they work fine but require a tweak or two to actually work.
I would buy another when the time comes and would tweak the same so it works.
This is a great saw for the money! To get a saw with miter cutting ability for this price is unheard of! Very well built and works great so far! I've only had the saw for a couple of weeks but I've used it a bunch and it seems very well built! So far I am very pleased! Highly recommend!
