Yet another “Anti-Sears” biased diatribe….used my old saw for almost 30years..NO ISSUES.

They just can t get it through their heads..Sears NEVER, EVER made a single tool…..yet all they see is the brand name, and go off. If you were to say “Emerson” they wouldn t know anything about it…

No kidding. Geeze, you would think some of these guys own stock in Craigslist, the way it always seems to be the go-to place for all of these “unicorn” deals on Unisaws, Grizzlies, and Sawstops. Where I’m from, there is hardly ever a “deal” on a used cabinet saw, but I can buy a Craftsman 113 anyday, six ways to Sunday.

My point is this…..if you’re just starting out and you’re on a budget, you gotta go with what you have.In the past, I’ve built several built-ins using a well-worn Hitachi jobsite saw and they’ve come out just fine. In fact, I still use the thing in combination with my track-saw out on the jobsite.
