I bought one primarily based on price, and am happy with it, although
I have a few gripes. There are embedded nuts on the back of the front
face which hold the fence on, and look like they're firmly attached.
However, when I removed the fence and started using the tool one of
the nuts vibrated loose and fell into the screaming saw blade! Minor
nick to the blade, but scary. The second gripe is that the depth
adjustment screw seems very loose and looks like it could vibrate to
a different setting. I just end up adjusting it more frequently.
Also, the dust collection bag attaches to the body through a very
restricted slot opening which easily clogs with dust.
All of these factors can easily be lived with, and for $119 I feel
like I got a very nice tool. It comes with a big carrying case
(almost too big!) and a few biscuits.
