I also cut some 1/4in birch plywood and it worked great. The fit and finish of this saw is also top notch. For the money this is an outstanding value. The major problem I had was assembling the saw on the stand. But new saw is fine, nice big table and folds up easy.

SKILSAW SPT70WT-01 Final Thoughts
"Clip here, snap lock there."
The customer support at SKILSAW was great. Granted I had a SKILSAW 744 before so not a fair comparison. It is however, very practical for a small shop like mine. It does not have a dust problem. Miter Gauge - The miter gauge is an absolute joke.
