rubbish out the box .mod this saw makes it goodBought this saw 2 weeks ago and here is my opinion on this jet slide mitre saw

acceptable for a hobbyistThe saw is of acceptable quality. It feels cheap (and actually smells cheap too. I hate when my new tools smell like dirt cheap plastic/rubber) but works as expected. It is the same as the axminster brand saw, but with a lower grade blade. There is no wobble in the linear bearings, the laser is well set and is actually helpful for setting the work-peace. There is a problem with the guard lock. There's a thumb lever that you have to push to release the guard and lower the saw, and that thingy has a small spring that cant push the knob back into its place, so it's always in "released" position. Also during shipping the blade guard was probably hitting the plastic base just at the tip at the front, so part of it was chipped away when i first opened the box. That doesn't affect the performance so i didn't bother to return/replace. The blade cuts well in softwood but the cut quality is pretty low, so i'm getting it replaced for a 80t one to work on hard woods. the bottom line - you get what you pay for - acceptable quality Chinese made machine. You need to make some adjustemnts and check on them from time to time, but it is accurate for a mitre saw. put aside some ££ for a new blade and add it to the setup when comparing prices.

affordable and it worksWhen it comes to tools and machinery the rule is buy the best you can afford so at the time my budget only stretched to this machine which made me a little apprehensive. What swung it was the make "jet" and the cross cut capacity of 305mm but actually reaches to 328mm which is great. Not accurate out of the box once set up which is easily done it works well. Made some modifications to the work clamp to stop it moving about. On the whole for the price works very nicely with plenty of power will upgrade the blade soon for a finer finish.

ok at bestWhilst I appreciate I shouldn't have expected perfection from an scms at this price point I had expected better. I can't fault its power, as another review says, it happily powers through everything I throw at it and its reach is good. Where its faults lie for me is its adjustability. I can only barely get mine to reach 90 in either axis and it doesn't seem to keep its setttigs ffor long, I end up rechecking it multiple times, even during the shortest job.
