Excellent: The first project with this saw was an octagon leg mantle...this type of mantle has lots of off angle cuts on base, crown backer, crown, small trim pieces...The laser was dead on so that sneaking up on lines wasn't needed....Of course, as with all my saws, the Forrest Chopmaster blade makes for near perfect fits on all cuts...I also use this saw now, instead of my 25+ year old Rockwell Sawbuck, for stair treads...the laser and electronic motor control makes it the perfect saw for treads with no bogging down...The Sawbuck is in retirement at last....I did have to cut the elbow from a floor attachment to connect to my Fein 1 1/4" vacuum hose and the angle of this works well with my shop setup....I have read about the bearings grinding or sticking, but with this saw, none of that has happened....A higher fence would have been nice, but I do have a 12" saw if I get into needing to cut a lot of 5 1/4" base standing up right..very impressed with this saw....
