OK-ishGood build quality let down by some silly design flaws. I agree with other comments about the next to useless mitre gauge. You watch YouTube videos of the guys in their workshops in the US, with table saws the size of tennis courts, all using a standard 3/4" (or 19mm) mitre slot. Why oh why can't European manufacturers do the same. I'd love to be able to use the UKJ mitre guide but of course, it won't fit. Also, I second the comments about standardisation of dust extraction ports. On such an important health issue, I'd have thought there'd be better co-operation. And why isn't the connecting hose supplied? Other than these two minor rants, a reasonable saw, sufficiently portable (luggable) for the small workshop (where the saw has to live on its side out of the way. The rip fence, with it's locking both ends feature, is sturdy and inspires confidence and stores conveniently underneath the table.

Good portable sawI've had this saw for 6 months and used it on most jobs instead of a skill saw,it cuts well and has plenty of power.The scale to set it at 90 degrees isn't great so when I've been doing an angled rip I just set the blade against a combination square.3 other carpenters I've worked with have used this saw and have now bought one,the stand is perfect and the saw stores on its side so doesn't take up to much space in the van.I trained as a joiner 25 years ago and this is one of the best and must useful tools I have ever bought.

Good, but useless as a cross cut toolSeems to do some of what I want, and has lots of ways to tweak the cut.

Good bit of kit (but ...)Graham Norman's comment about the riving knife is wrong - he just hasn't yet discovered that the riving knife pulls up and pushes down - otherwise it couldn't be stowed away for transport. You can have just a few millimetres of blade protruding if you want to. I've had no problem at all adjusting the saw to rip accurately (the manual does tell you what you can adjust). The stand works well, too. However, I agree, the mitre gauge is floppy and it is impossible to use it to make precise cross or angled cuts.

A good tradesman's sawAnd only a good tradesman's saw. I purchased this saw for portability and cutting down timber to size. I didn't expect cabinet saw accuracy and certainly didn't get it. It needed a lot of adjusting and tweeking to get it as accurate as it should be and after a while I've achieved it. The worst problem overcome was blade wobble. No misaligned arbor shaft or loose bearings just poorly machined components! The other moan was the mitre gauge. They could have included the one from the xc and not this excuse for one!
