Sufficient for a cheap saw
I bought this saw as a replacement to the horrid Skil table saw I was using as a contractor saw. I am generally happy with the overall product, however, there are some issues that I an not too happy with. 1) The fence handle, on the left side, is proud of the fence itself and causes your initial cuts to be at a slight angle. The right side of mine if fine, but that means I am limited in my cutting width. 2) There are 2 screws that hold the facing on for the angle adjustment handle. The left screw, inside of the curved slot, causes the tilt to not be able to go to a full 45 degree angle. You have to use a screwdriver to push the insert back away from the front face to get to a true 45. 3) THIS IS THE BIG ONE! None, and I do mean NONE of the advertised accessories (i.e. joiner attachment etc) are available anywhere. Can't find them on any site. Called Rockwell, they were confused what I was even asking about and then told me that they have discontinued all accessories for this tool to focus on their hand tools.
A good saw for what it is.
I purchased this saw about 6 months ago. Overall I'm happy with the purchase, the saw has plenty of power for my uses, it cuts smoothly, the 30" rip capacity is great, and I love how easy it is to move around if you need to. The only problems I have with it are as follows: 1) The laser light won't turn off with batteries installed. This is frankly a non-issue, because who uses that thing anyway? 2) The fence doesn't always lock parallel to the blade, this is annoying, but once you learn how to deal with it (if you press towards the back of the machine as you lock it down it locks in square every time) it's not a big deal. 3) *This is the big one!* The first one I received arrived with the motor out of alignment with the top. This meant that the miter slots, and the rip fence were not parallel to the blade, and I ended up with binding and burning on my projects. I called the manufacturer to find out how to realign the top (it wasn't explained in the manual). They informed me that while there was a way to do so, it was a hassle and they recommended that I just order a replacement, free of charge. The next one was aligned great, which is fantastic. FOR NOW. I'm sure there will come a day when the table top works its way out of alignment again and I'll either have to sell it or deal with the hassle of figuring out how to adjust the top on a machine that even the manual doesn't know how to do so. All of that being said, it's still a very good table saw, and if you're doing rough carpentry (i.e. as long as you're not trying to create pieces with less than a 1/64" gap anywhere) I can't recommend it highly enough. I'm moving more toward fine woodworking and while the saw is still sufficient, I'm already dreaming of the day when I can upgrade to a nice cabinet saw!
