Good value but understand it's limitations
This is not a tool designed for fine wood working. It has many shortcomings, but some can be overcome with a little bit of effort. Some very good videos on youtube about mods and improvements.
I got mine for about 580 on clearance and it was pretty square right out of the box.
I made a cross cut sled and found that using two runners caused the sled to bind. The runners on their own slid smoothly, so I can only assume that the mitre slots are not 100% parallel which is a shame but not a huge deal. I just use one runner now. The blade is close ...enough to parallel with the slots that the cuts are good enough for my work. It makes a ton of dust so use it outside or with dust collection. Cuts well, plenty of power, the rack and pinion fence is easy to dial in accurate cuts. It does a good job for the price.
Works well - Ear muffs needed!
Purchased from Bunnings Kirrawee approx 2015. Is handy size for a table saw. Accurate and easy to operate. Cons - Is very loud, extraction vacuum a must if working inside, ruler seems to go out of calibration easy for a workshop tool?
Purchased at Bunnings for $700.00.
