Not too bad, but watch out for the lifting mechanism sticking
on 29 August 2017
I've had this a little over a year, just outside of warranty now, and I've started to have problems with it. The saw raises and lowers on bearings on a smooth rod on one side, and a threaded rod on the other. The bearings on the smooth rod can bind up over time, making it almost impossible to raise and lower. The ideal solution would probably be to clean off any sawdust and use a dry lubricant spray, but if you're stuck you can use regular oil. It'll pick up sawdust even quicker, but it can get into the bearings by working it back and forth, so this works ok to save it if it's hopelessly stuck, like mine was.
Outside of the problems, it's reasonably priced for a good quality table saw. My previous one to this was a £100 model which ended up going straight in the bin. It also takes up a very small amount of space, but you can build it into a larger unit pretty easily.
