Although it took Busy Bee 12 days to get this saw delivered it is fantastic. Straight out of the box set up was minimal as everything went together like clockwork. I did find there instructions about the masking tape regarding the wings really helped. The rip fence is amazing was perfectly square to miter slot and only had to tweak square to table. The riving knife fit like a glove. This saw is worth what there asking full retail but I saved $470.00 because of the sale. Amazingly good saw!!!
I have grown up using my fathers General Cabinet saw and finally decided to purchase my own. I did a lot of research and the reviews and comments about the CX212 do not disappoint! Yes the instruction manual sucks but I was able to put it together so anyone should be able to. It cuts extremely well through hardwood, pine, plywood. Cuts square and is easily adjusted. The table was easy to set up flat and for the money, you can't get anything better. If you are considering this saw in your options, take the plunge and buy it. You won't regret it
Saw was easy to put together, but the top was already assembled and the 4 bolts holding it down are very much over torqued , which sucks because the table top wasn't aligned with the blade and now it's very difficult to loosen these bolts. Otherwise the saws alright, busy bee tools were easy to deal with, just having issues with the table top.
Really happy with this saw, we've had it for about 5 months and it's been flawless so far. passed our coin test right out after set up and has been a real addition to our shop. thanks busy bee & craftex!!
highly recommend this unit if you're looking to step up to a cabinet saw. I have a few craftex machines in my shop and they have all served me well to date. I'm glad I continued the trend with this saw as the price was excellent. Really a great deal and good bang for your buck, compared to other brands I researched, mainly King. Very happy so far with this saw,.,
I bought this table saw just over a year ago after a lengthy search for a good hybrid or small cabinet saw. This is a truly excellent saw and I highly recommend it. It is relatively easy to setup but the manual is a bit lacking. It is the same as the GO771z table saw by Grizzley so I suggest downloading that manual and following the more complete setup instructions there. Tables are easy to get flat and and the cabinet mounted trunnions make adjusting the notre slots parallel to the blade very easy. The fence is excellent and easy to use. I set everything up initially with feeler gauges and dial indicators to very low tolerances and after a year of cutting hundreds of bf of walnut, cherry, maple, and oak, i did an annual check and everything was as accurate as the day I first set it up. It has excellent power too, and with a good blade cuts hardwood like butter board after board. I upgraded the mitre gauge but other than that it’s all stock. Got to say that the saw was exactly what I wanted and I could not be happier.
I shopped around, price compared, read reviews and took about 7 months to make a decision lol. I am over the moon with this purchase as I saved at least $500 next to the cheapest King. The Craftex seemed better when I compared physically and now after using for 3 months, I can say I definitely made the right decision. Well packaged, well made and overall and easy recommend to anyone looking for a solid tablesaw for their shop.
This saw has been a welcome addition the shop. Pretty dead on accurate right out of the box and appearance and finish was surprising. Great price, plenty of power. The fence is also solid/ smooth. It's been only about a month but very happy so far. I will write another review after 6 months like I do with any major machine I purcahse.
The price is great on this saw right now and I pulled the trigger on this around Black Friday. Waited to see if anything else in the market would drop but finally went with the CX212. Intial impressions - well packaged and well made saw out of the box. This seems to be a dead ringer of the Grizzly G0771Z saw. Manuals are similar, the Grizzly a bit more detials. But the saws seem identical. Machine runs smooth and true and while I've got only about 5 to 6 hours on the saw, I am impresssed with the combination of overall quality and price. Passed the nickle test and I'm actually surprised by the fence. It's a high quality fence with no play, locks very tight. Busy Bee, tip of the cap here, this is a winner. I will see if I can edit this post after more months on this saw with more impressions.
