Most helpful reviews

Caroline , Canterbury

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It does the job that it is designed for and its easy to set up. I love the trenching ability because with a flick of the finger you can return to full cutting depth.
Bad points:
The laser is not as precise as I had hoped. When the cut is finished you must lift the saw before stopping the machine because when the blade slows it wobbles and marks the wood.
