This does the job and was easy to assemble
I had to true out the blade before cutting, just looking at the blade when raising it, I could tell it was off. Pros: Portable and easy to move. Compact for storing Strong enough to get the job done Cons: Sliding fence is not true, tried to adjust it and it's off. Not true out the box Dust everywhere, even with the vacuum attached to the port. I would recommend getting a dust bag and getting a dust deputy to save your vacuum filter and dust getting everywhere.
The fence, blade, and rear guide do not easily square and align. This can cause problematic and dangerous binding. I think I could actually feed material more safely without the safety guard in place. The table extensions do not feel strong enough. As with many lower price Craftsman power tools, the plastic feels very cheep and I get the feeling things will soon be breaking. The size is great and the saw motor seems to have adequate power. Overall, I should have spent more money and bought a higher end product.
I received the item in poor condition. still need lots of work to have it function.
Like the title said. Stable too.
I am very satisfied with this table saw. This is my fourth Craftsman 10" table saw, & I was very pleased with each & every one I bought & used. In regards to the plastic parts, the user must be very careful in tightening the slides. If it is very hard to tighten the slides, then investigate the cause before you break them. I did not have any problems so far with this table saw and have been using it for months building cabinets for my garage.
Bought this as a gift for someone who was doing a lot of work on our house so I haven't used it myself but the recipient loves it! Hasn't had any problems with it and is very mobile. He is extremely satisfied with the product.
I researched and viewed several table saws in this price range, and was willing to spring for a few more coins if it did my type of jobs better. But, portability was important to me even though I use it around the house, and customer reviews highlighted a lot of issues in other brands. The Craftsman 28463 seemed like the best choice, then it surprised me with some additional features like a table that expands on two sides, not just one. The vacuum port (dust bag) is important when I use it indoors and my shop vac plugs right in. All around winner for a good price.
