    Same idea as the saws that have been available in Europe for a while. Looks good. Thanks.

    Greg Burnett, got yours yet?

      Negative, Mark. Interesting concept, though.

        Looks a lot like the old Delta Sawbuck.

          But more portable & with ripping capabilities.

          I still have a Sawbuck sitting in the shop. Needs a little TLC - maybe one day I'll get around to rehabbing it.

            That actually looks pretty cool. I might have to get one for $190. Coming in May.

              CPO has it in March. Really want to pull the trigger, but just can't without reviews. Is it really necessary if you can have your MS and TS in the room?

                Looks like a pretty good idea and nice package. Wonder how accurate it is. Thinking it might be a way to even do door and window trim for some of the wider stuff you have to cut. And it sounds like it must be lighter than carrying in a big old slider miter saw to do the job.

                  Looks like it will pay for itself on my next beaded wainscoting job.

                  Wait 'till Kreg sees it.

                    Here's an interesting one from Bosch. Another good idea.

                      7 amp motor and 4-3/8" blade? Sure, next time I build a doll house I'll buy one. By then maybe they'll add a 1.5" belt sander and 2" planer to it.

                        How much capacity & power is really needed, though? After all, that thing's really only deigned to cut 4/4 material. My bigger concern would be about the quality of the tool. Skil makes some real junk, as well as pro level saws these days. Which one will this be?

                          looks to be the junky skil and it is simular to a flooring saw here in canada. It is a huismann basically chinese junk

                            It's designed for cutting flooring. How much power does it need? 4-3/8" blade is fine for what it's intended. It's NOT a 16" 6HP radial arm saw, nor is it intended to replace such a tool.
