A verg good build quality. It is working flawlessly for the past several years helping me in my home projects. I like its strength to cut metals in addition to wood.

Bought this 2 years ago for for work and still going strong, didn't expect it to last this long. Gets used everyday for cutting steel unistrut, probably close to 10000 cuts and on the 4th blade.

Maybe try a different store or try again later with a different associate. No question asked at Aurora CT.

Fantastic value if you can get it. I bought this saw three years ago for home renovation. I installed 2000 SQ feet of flooring and finished a 1600sq basebament with it. Replaced the brush once after 50 hours of heavy use ($10). Still going strong. Quality wise, I would say it is in between Mastercraft and Maximum. It is a no frills saw that gets job done with reasonable quality. The factory calibration for bevel and miter is pretty good, within 1/10 of a degree accurate. If you have the proper tools you can easily adjust it.

$450 is definitely an inflated price considering the Rigid double bevel slider is $299 at home depot. IMO $250 would be a reasonable regular price for this saw.

How does pricing work on the CT website? I changed my preferred store to those in the stocktrack website but can't get pricing to match.

It does not always match CT website price and actual in store price. Probably don't want people to pricematch using their website.
Stocktrack gives correct in store information.

You have to go to the store and ask an associate to check in their system or use the self serve kiosk. CT website is trash. Stocktrack is accurate.

I mitre a lot of aluminum extrusions but the reviews about angle accuracy have me on the fence. Already have a Hitachi slider but I may have killed it the other day when it sent an aluminum piece flying through the garage. Now the Hitachi sounds like there is something wrong with it. Still cuts but will have to figure out what I broke.

Reading online this saw is not recommended for "neat woodwork" but with work (mostly fixing quality issues in the base) it can still be tweaked to get good results, not sure if I want to go through that process though. Probably not for me.
