This saw does an excellent job resawing, and has very good dust collection. Although blade changes and guide adjustments aren’t as easy as they are on the Powermatic and Laguna 14/Twelve, they aren’t difficult either. The 1-1⁄2-hp motor is wired for 110-volt power, so this saw can be used on a standard house circuit. The lamp and mobile base are convenient additions.
Includes casters for mobility, a circle-cutting jig, and a lamp. No quick-release tension lever.
