Man this saw so far is pretty sweet. The granite is really smooth sleek and durable. Though I try to be careful when inserting and removing the miter gauge because of the chance of chipping. Lots of tweaking, but after everything is set the cuts are very clean and square. It took a long time to setup as well, about 2 days for me but I ran into a lot of problems like the cabinet not laying level and the herc-u-lift not really working too well. The only gripes I have with the saw, 1. The fence is not 100% secure, when pushing near the far end of the fence, it is pretty easy to make the fence flex left or right 1/16th of an inch. I don't like this because I push my work against the fence when I run it through. Maybe someone knows a solution for this? 2. The miter gauge stops are useless. I spent about an hour trying to set them, but realized it was impossible to get them perfect. Its much faster to just press a combination square up to the loose miter gauge, and I get perfect square cuts this way. 3. The saw bevel stops don't really work at all. When setting it up as the manual states, and tightening the stop screw, I am still able to go a little past the 90 degree mark. I decided to just loosen it and not even use the stop, instead just checking the square with a combination square and tightening. 4. The blade height tightener is a little finicky. When tightening it the wheel can turn and shift the blade some.
