Craftsman on the lake: Ok thanks. Unless I hear something really scary about the Craftsman I may offer the guy $ 100.00 for it. I am rather taken by it because of the 20” depth, however; if he won’t budge then I will certainly consider the Hitachi 16” CW40 per your review I read. Yesterday after reading your review which I found to be honest and fair, I searched online for more reviews on the model and found several people on one site really trashing the CW40. It makes me wonder if maybe Hitachi had a bad run on the assembly line and these people got a hold of them. It could also be other factors as you well know of and perhaps more attributable to the user’s level of understanding and education as to what the saw is supposed to be and do in relation to how much they paid for it and the kind of work they are doing with the saw. This reminds me that I myself should have mentioned at the beginning of this topic that I will be an occasional user and even at that I don’t envision scrolling on really thick materials too much. Reading your review it would seem you are in the same camp and so your comments carry more weight. Labor Day weekend. Maybe Lowe’s will drop the price on the Hitachi to $ 150.00!
