I own a 3 hp cabinet saw with 50 inch rails. I have been very pleased with the saw’s performance but I am not quite sure about their quality control. My switch went bad and I called and they shipped a new switch immediately. Put the new switch in and no go. Call them and they ship a new motor immediately. Install the motor and still nothing. I decided to open up the old switch and see what I might be able to find and I find a loose connection. Make the connection fast and the saw works fine. Still the new replacement switch still doesn’t work. All that aside, the saw is awesome when it works. I just got a feeling that my case was a fluke. Their customer service is incredibly responsive, their sales personnel in Murfreesboro were great. I would still buy SC tools in the future.
