Pros
Easy to clean, nice cuts Customer service is very friendly and has so far solved my many problems. Great hobby saw.
Cons
Hard to see if you are cutting small pieces. Blade moves a lot, if you put the stabilizer blade on it does help, but now it is even harder to see. manual is outdated, and information is wrong. The issue with the tension arm is not solved properly, at least not in my case. Light cloggs up with glass and light dissipates. Parts do not last at all and are very expensive to replace. I am on my second saw in less than 2 years and will have to call geminini tomorrow and I fear i have to get a new drive gear... If I have to send the saw back I will be without a saw for at least 3 weeks!!! Or having to buy a new one to use as these fail. With a 3 year warranty I should not be asked to send it back without a replacement. These are tools that are necessary for many of us to work and produce, that is hard if you don't have major tools.
Other Thoughts
I have not tried other saws but will shortly as I feel I can't trust this saw and need to have a backup to be able to work instead of using time trying to figure out what is wrong and change expensive parts that should have worked better. I feel this is a great hobby saw, but it does not live up to its promises in a busy studio.
