Really good saw, I was skeptic about the blades and only got 2 to try them out, very good quality, I went through the process of evening out the teeth, by cutting 1”x1” square steel stock slices at half speed of blade feed and blade descent, and then let her rip at full speed and the first blade lasted me quite a surprising amount of cuts... only got damaged by my own fault ( cutting a small piece(1/2” of 1/2”x1/2” square bar) which upon cut completion “jammed” in the vice and broke a tooth and misaligned one of the teeth), and what killed it was cutting through a rock that was lodged inside a pipe I was salvaging...
So saw itself is excellent and a workhorse! Very smooth vice and miter ajustements, blades are worth their weight in gold!
The saw is excellent. I had to drive to a different city to get the last one in Ontario, but it was worth the trip. There could have been a better description on the internet. The saw is obviously manufactured by Way Train of Taiwan, a very experienced saw. manufacturer. Highly recommended.
