Great value

I was undecided between this and the DW717. The saw was easy to unbox and set up. I did have to align the blade to the table, the laser and the 0, 33.9 and 45 degree bevel stops. This was very easy to do using my digital angle gauge. The miter locking tab that clicks into the detents is plastic compared to the metal of the DW717 and I do have my concerns to the long-term repeatability of the stops, but at more than $200 less than the DW, I'll take my chances. The part is easily replaceable. The saw will return to zero, but be sure to lock the setting. When the miter is not locked with the setting clicked in, there is a little play. The saw can be forced off square if excessive force is used at the end of the cut or when the saw is at the extreme of its extension. If you let the saw do the work, it will be fine. The accuracy of the bevels and miters is important to me. To test, I made two picture frames. Both frames had no gaps in the miters and produced a nice, tight joint. The blade that comes with this saw is a pretty decent Craftsman branded 60T carbide tipped blade with a ATB grind. It's no Freud Fusion, but it does better than I expected at leaving a nice, clean cut. The throat plates are replaceable, as well, and can accept user made zero clearance plates.

Criticism

Good... BUT!

It's a good saw. Great options with the expandable outfeeds, stop blocks, and I love that the bars come forward instead of backward so you can put the saw right up against the wall. HOWEVER... I had to return it because the fence was crooked. The fence is some kind of cast aluminum and it's 1 piece that spans the width of the saw. It must have become warped sometime during the milling process and became about 1mm off. Doesn't sound like much but that distance gets exponentially bigger the further you go out. It made getting perfect miter joins impossible. I looked up the part number for the fence thinking that I just got a bad fence and I called Sears. They told me to go into my local Sears and speak to the guys there. Upon trying to explain the situation to the Sears rep, I grabbed a level off their shelf and went to show them my issue on their display model. Turns out that 5 of their display models (of various Craftsman saws) all had this same issue. It was only the saws that had that same type of aluminum scaled fence. At that point I had no confidence in swapping out the part... something was wrong with the manufacturing of the product. My only option was to pay the difference and purchase Craftsman's top-of-the-line saw that had a different kind of fence that proved to be perfect on the display model. Like I said, it's a good saw... but just watch out for the fence. You won't get 90s unless you're cutting something that spans the entire distance if the fence is crooked. If you get it, just put a straight edge across both fences and see if it's convex or concave in the center. If it's perfectly straight, then enjoy your saw, it's a good one. If it's warped, then you might have to get something else.
