So far, seems like a good saw, for my home hobby shop. Not really industrial quality, but good enough for me. The only real complaint is that the cutting table, which is for using the saw in the vertical position, should not have such a big hole, in the center, around the blade. One of the reasons for my buying this saw is for cutting pins for my knife making. The pins are of 1/4, or smaller material, and normally about 1-1 1/2 in length. I only cut one pin at a time, and do not want to have to switch to horizontal mode, but rather just hold the pin stock with my fingers and cut them, quick & easy. The big hole, in the table, makes this impossible, but I will make a table myself, since Grizzly does not offer one with a narrow slot, instead of the big square hole. Actually, the hole is unnecessary, for any other cutting as well.
