You get what you pay for, and this saw is worth every penny! I expected a Powermatic made tool for the premium price I paid. So I've had the new Powermatic in use for almost two months now. They are not made to go on and back off again for storage. On the doorstep, out of the box and setup, maybe 30 minutes.

Powermatic PM2 Final Thoughts
"No problems there."
I highly recommend this saw to anyone. But overall I'm really pleased with this saw. The entire package was bound to a wooden palette. Packaging was immaculate and intelligently designed. Miter Gauge - The miter gauge is an absolute joke.
