This is junk. I've owned it for a week and then returned it.

Agreed. This one kinda says it all:

The price makes this one attractive, but it's unable to do a decent job. You'll realize this before you finish assembly. Once complete and ready–a simple flick will move the locked fence out of square. I returned it and tried KOBALT's (486267) entry level table saw. The KOBALT is a much stronger buy. Honest engineering is immediately apparent, smoother table surface, better fence and much better stand.

Good, bad or indifferent, the one this person recommends is $279, not $99.

If you're going to make comparison, make it comparable.

Pass on this crap... if you need a table saw rent one if you are going to need it so infrequently that you can only justify a $99 tool.

The Kobalt one has been on sale multiple times this year for $179.00 (I bought one at that price over the holidays). I realize that is a 44% difference but that gets you a saw that you won't need to put a extra set of clamps on the fence to use it.

So if you NEED a table saw RIGHT NOW and don't mind dealing with some issues. This saw is available dirt cheap.

I would wait a bit and get a saw that isn't frustrating to use.

Owning a shop I recommend you look it over carefully and compare before you jump on it. Some cheap power tools can equal an accident waiting to happen.

If you need proof go to a Lowe's and look at the display model. Multiple problems with it and you'll probably spend more fixing/modifying it and the base than spending on a better unit.

I often wonder about this. So, if you had to prioritize what to spend money on for fairly common woodworking projects (making cabinets, shelves, furniture, etc), what would you spend money on vs what are you more comfortable "cheaping out" a bit? I'm wondering both safety and ease of use.

this saw is pure garbage. I bought it on black friday with coupon, and couldn't believe how crappy it is.

The blade is not parallel to the miter slots, and there's no way to adjust the arbor. The front and back of blade was off by 2 mm to each other.
The arbor also has some play, so you'll probably get sloppy cuts.

The fence was not vertically straight, the metal bulges in places, so your wood never sits perfectly flush on the fence.
And the fence doesn't clamp parallel to the miter slot either.

I tried to call porter cable to get a replacement fence, and their customer service is nonexistent.
It's just an answering machine.
hahahaha

And of course, other reviews say the motor blows up, so there's that.

Even if you're a casual DIYer, this is not worth the trouble. A circular saw would give you what you need for $30.


I later bought the Delta Kobalt for $143, and it's 10x better, for less than double price after 20% coupon.

There are many things I will cheap out on, but a table saw isn't one of them. I like my straight cuts and fingers too much.

tend to go more with what will get the most use. Cheap out on the stuff that is going to get used occasionally. The workhorses such as power tools -drill presses-routers are the places I tend to put my money. just my thoughts
