I'd say, for the same money or less you can and should get a real brand, like a Delta
or a General.
Or this one, Rikon:
I hear in this group that Rikon are very desireable. But me knowing nothing about it
(to be honest
with you) I still would not start out with a $469.99 Craftsman when "real" brands are
in the same price range. And even then, a lot depends on warrenty and company service
of makers. Sears charges a serious premium on replacement parts.
Yup. Been looking at them as well as one by Jet and Grizzley. All appear
to be find saws, although I'm a little leary of the Rikon. Not because it
isn't a good saw. Just doesn't seem to be that many places carrying them
Reason why I was asking for opinions on this other one is because it's all
part of that new line of tools they just released. This one seems to be a
much higher quality than their power tools of the recent past. It's in the
same line as their new table saws which a few in the group have given 'two
thumbs up' too.
