- The motor is inside the cabinet, not hanging off the back. This would let it fit in my garage better.
- The left-tilt mechanism (I don't like right tilts).
- The built-in wheel system for moving it around my garage.
- The fence seemed to move smoothly, it locked down tight, and the "micro-adjust" seemed like it worked well.
- All controls were right up front, no leaning around the side to adjust the bevel.
- The bevel angle is displayed through a little viewer on top of the table.
- It ran off 120V (I don't have 220V outlets available).
The one weakness I saw:
- The max rip width appears to be about 24". Probably suitable for my needs, but it would be nice to go to 30" or so on occasion.
However, I know features aren't everything, so I came home to do some research online. But, I haven't been able to find much feedback on this saw, other than a few comments on the inaccurate horsepower rating (which I figured out on my own at the store). There don't seem to be any reviews on the C10FL, even though it has apparently been on the market for a couple of years now.
So, I'm curious if anyone here has used this saw and what you think of it.
- Does it have any dust collection features?
- Are there any aftermarket accessories available, like zero clearance or dado inserts, longer guide rails to extend the rip capacity, etc.?
I'm not really in the market for a saw now, and $500 is about my maximum budget, but if the saw is really as good as it appears I might just scrounge my penny's together and pick one up.
