This saw has been on the market for a while. Looking for any feedback as to its performance.
Were bearings lubricated to last?
Do settings hold up without coming loose?
Is blade changing easy?In your opinion do you prefer top of bottom feeding?

Getting ready to purchase one but am gun shy after my life with the DeWalt 2.
The bearings didn’t last one year until it started shaking itself to death – as a machinist I was able to repair and replace damaged parts – cost/time value increased my investment closer to cost of a new Seyco.
Unhappy with engineering design of blade stroke not being able to minimize front to back movement enough to bother finite work.

Appreciate any feedback, thanks

i dont own a seyco but will say what i know.
first, you wont find customer service any better than from ray at seyco.
now, the seyco is basically an excalibur with some upgrades ray wanted done. blade changes are easy.the bearings are sealed and dont need lubricating. theres not much for settings ont he seyco- upper arm height adjustment and motor adjustment, which will be set by ray before shipping.
personally im a bottom feeder but have read folks with the seyco that bottom feed.

the dewalt isnt even close to being in the same class as the seyco. you wont be dissapointed with the seyco.
heres a review from steve good-

again, customer service with seyco wont be matched by any other ss manufacturer.

Have your say...
