This is within minutes of expiring.   I remember years ago, there was a lot of discussion about these saws.  Some loved them, some hated them.   It looked like a good idea of the time, but not sure the execution was up to par.   Anyone have experience with them?

No experience but I see them fairly frequent on CL...$100-$300 range typically. Occasionally less. Saw this one brought $70 plus whatever shipping costs and buyer premium?

I think Ryobi made a similar branded version for Sears-Craftsman. Craftsman also had a larger version for the 10" Contractor Saw w/ cast iron top; don't think it sold well...see maybe a couple/year on CL.

Sliding table and integral routing table seems nice and useful.

I bought one of those from Sears when I first started trying my hand at woodworking.  I couldn't get it to cut square, I'm sure due to my own inexperience, so I called Sears, and took them up on their offer to have a technician come out and help me set it up.  As soon as he set foot in my shop, the first words out of his mouth were "You didn't buy that from Sears!"  Had to show him the receipt to convince him I did.  He was expecting a regular Sears or Craftsman unit.  He worked with it for awhile, and ended up cutting the plastic end off of the miter fence on the sliding table.  I wound up taking it back, and buying a Delta contractor's saw, which I still use today.  My opinion of the saw was that it had some good features, but the quality wasn't built in.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
