Expert Review

If you're looking for value, this saw not only offers the famous Craftsman quality and warranty, but it's a very good tool as well. I can't find the motor horsepower specification, but it draws 9 amps. That leads me to think that it's about 1/2 HP, perhaps 3/4 HP.

It can be run at two speeds, 1620 and 3340 feet per minute and can be powered by either 120 or 240 VAC to save power, if you have it available in your workshop. The table on this saw is 15.75 long by 20.375 wide, and T-slotted on both sides for use with a miter gauge. The max resaw capacity on this saw is 8 inches, which means you could actually resaw a 1-inch by 8-inch piece of wood on it. That's truly impressive.Rating: 4.5/5
