    I have one, it's much better than the really cheap no-name saw I had years ago. The vertical safety bar in front of the blade bothered me so I trimmed it. Blade changing is relatively easy, the table tilts up so you can reach under to twist the knob. You'll need a light to see what you're doing. If the one you are looking at is like mine you'll put little rubber bands around the blade clamps to make them open up. Kind of silly but no big deal. The only real issue seems to be that the arm will hit the rectangular metal tube it sticks out of if you don't use enough of the blade. ie. if the arm can go up too high. Things I'd like to see different are: the blower blowes toward you, can't be good. Also, I get noticeable vibration when doing very fine work. I'm going to try clamping it down harder when I get a chance. Hope this helps.
