My Mcsaw
"I used this first time Saturday. I was apprehensive because of the price(being so cheap).
I was pleasantly surprised as to the power that the saw had. And I was amazed at the lack of effort needed to use the machine.
I have in the past spent hours on machines costing 100's of pound more, but they didn't perform any better than my Mc.
I would certainly recommend this machine to all regular users and all DIYers!"

Excellent Value Tool
"This is the first of this type tool I have bought and have been very pleased with it.
OK there are more expensive and, no doubt, better made versions, but this seems robust and accurate - would probably do for anyone other than professionals and really rate it for vaue and ease of use.."

Excellent Piece of Equipment
"The price is extremely good and build quality is good, if you follow manufacturers instructions for check and set up of blade to frame it gives accurate results time after time. It has saved an enormous amount of time on the build, with flip over feature saves moving work piece, can also cut off tiny slithers . Slight downside is wood dust covers laser cover and dust bag not that effective, but an excellent bit of kit. slight downsides not worth worrying about."

Poor build quality
"At face value this seems a great value product. However, when used for its first project, the appauling build quality and lack of accuracy severly let it down. A bit of a waste of money."
