SKILSAW SPT99-12 Final Thoughts
"You've got another convert!"
The power and torque this thing has is almost scary. That's when I realized that I needed a better saw. Has always been square to the blade. So I always measure out and chalk anyway. On the doorstep, out of the box and setup, maybe 30 minutes.
