I highly recommend this saw to anyone. First I used WD-40 to degrease the components. I also purchased the Hitachi dado insert. So I always measure out and chalk anyway. Easy to transport from place to place.

Hitachi C10RJ Final Thoughts
"This is a pro."
I highly recommend this saw to anyone. Worm drives are about torque but are not light. I also purchased the Hitachi dado insert. It should be fine for what I need. The table has the capability to adjust to a level position.
