    Holbren has been one of my best and favorite suppliers for many years. Really a stellar guy. Not cool to post this so hastily IMO, but appreciate the update that the concern was resolved.

    That saw is from the Shopmaster line, and is smaller than a standard contractor saw, along with having a universal motor.

    Other possibilities at reasonable prices:

    That can be a very serviceable saw. Get it aligned perfectly and put a good carbide blade on it....decent blades start at about $30. Blade choice will ultimately determine how well the saw...

    Unless you need portability to move the saw from jobsite to jobsite, I would not buy a portable saw. While functional, you simply give up the lion's share of advantages for the sake of portability. ...

    IIRC, the Craftsman "zipcode" saws (22104, 22114, and 22124), all accepted a standard left tilt US made Delta Unisaw insert. Check the measurements to be sure.

    Nice saw, nice fence, nice mobile base, router table, and looks to be in nice shape, but is priced high. IMO $300ish...maybe $350 is fair for that. It's got the old style outboard motor, is right...

    For that saw and your budget, it'll be tough to beat the Delta/DW 7670. It's the best performer near the price range, and gives a taste of the best sets for near half the price.

    A built in router table on a table saw is a great space saver for those in dire need of the space, but there are disadvantages compared to a stand alone unit. If you have the space, there's no...

    There are pros and cons to both tilt directions, and it really boils down to a matter of preference. Right tilt bevels toward the fence on a standard bevel cut, which is considered less safe than if...

    Question - Are you buying a portable jobsite saw because you need to sling it from site to site routinely, or because it fits your budget/space? The lion's share of performance advantages go to a...

    Dunno how much ash has gone up recently, but 7 or 8 years ago I paid $2/BF for kiln dried ash delivered. He did it as a part time business, and that was his listed CL price.

    I suspect that a 12 or 13 router is about the biggest you'll find in a combo kit, which is really plenty for most applications including spinning big panel raisers now and then...MW, Bosch, PC, DW,...

    For the money most of us sink into our saws and wood, buy a decent 24T 3/32" thin kerf rip blade (< $60). It's the right blade for ripping 6/4" maple, and it won't strain your motor as much as a 40T...

    The Fusion is a hybrid, and a significant step down from either the PM66 of G0690. Less power, less robust underpinnings, and a much lesser fence.

    I think the PM66 is a more robust machine than...

    The step from a hybrid to a 3hp industrial style cabinet saw is significant. It's a jump in class of saw, sort of like going from an S10 to a Silverado 3500. The G1023RL is among the best bangs for...

    A good quality higher tooth count blade with a Hi-ATB grind will give the lowest possible tearout. The Infinity 010-060 or 010-080 are both excellent and affordable. The CMT 210.080.10 or Freud...

    The solid cast wings are great. Not a necessity, but a strongly preferred "nice to have" feature. My first saw had steel wings...my next 3 had solid cast iron. As Jim mentioned they add mass, and...
