I don't know about that brand; I've never heard of it. From my own
experience, my first miter saw was a cheapie. I could NEVER get miters
to close right - they were always a little off. I had pretty much
resigned myself to the fact that I was just no good at mitering. Then
I helped a friend do some trim work and used his DeWalt 705. All of
the sudden, I was consistently turning out excellent miters. I bought
one of my own and have had no problem turning out great miters ever
since. So, to me the bottom line is: You will get what you pay for. If
you buy a cheap miter saw you are probably going to get bad miters.
Most people in this group wouldn't give tool shop tools
another look because of their price. I however try alot of
things no matter what it takes. Tool shop electric tools
are suprisingly good for the price. Remember it may not
last for more than a couple of years or forever depending
on how abusive you want to be. Gee, sounds like advice for
any tool. Their hand tools are just ok, but the power tools actually
last. The other day I was in a big box store looking at some Jet
stand up machines and right next to the Jet were the tool shop
with the same colors, stickers, and switches in the same place.
It may mean something, It may not.
I have one that my father in law purchased for me. If you are cutting
2 x 4s for construction work its ok. Think of it as a chop saw and
your ok. Don't expect it to provide a true miter or cut perfectly
square. If you have nothing else AND only a little to spend AND your
need is construction work not cabinet work then its probably worth
it. If you can afford more, have time to save up or want accurate
cuts...pass on this deal. Otherwise after you buy it, you will never
like it and eventually spend even more to get something decent.
