Absolutely great for weekend project within 1/32
I bought this unit to build a toolchest using 1/2" baltic birch plywood. I had to rip 4'x8' to rip apart. I made my cutting plan so I only had to cut on the 48" side
As precise as your marking and measuring tape. I achieved all my cuts within a 1/32" margin.
Extraordinary price/quality ratio. Can't ask for more.
The anti-skid works flawlessly. You do not have to fix the track to the piece. Lay it down, push the saw, that's it !
The track has a starting entry point which is away from your material so you can lay the saw on the track way before you hit the piece. It helped me to get confident.
Takes some patience to properly setup. For those of you who do not want to take your time and has to be working perfectly straight out of the box: there is festool track saw at a 1000$ for you.
The attaching base could benefit of an improved method to securely attach the saw. However, once my DeWalt cordlees saw was attached to it, it did not move for the 30 cuts I made for this project.
The bottom front of my saw raises. The Kreg plate has a reversible piece to compensate for flat or raising saw skid plate. The angle of my circular saw nose is greater than the piece can compensate for, that is, once titghten down, the saw does not sit flat on the bed of the plate. I wish there would have been an adustment for this. Nonetheless, i did absolutely not affect the accuracy of my cuts.
When the plate is engaged on the track pointing away, the plate has a left to right play. I cannot explain why, but I achieved all my cuts without a flaw. I have to say that I was worried with this play at first. I made my cuts with a slight push of the saw to the left (toward the blue sacrificial plastic piece)
this product is new, may benefit from a few minor improvements. Would I recommend it ? Absolutely yes.
Hope this will help
