I received the saw with a hole in the side of the main carton that you could actually stick your head inside of the carton. The hole was circled several times with a Sharpie and had arrows pointing to it from every direction. ABF decided to deliver it anyway. They had it situated in the truck so that the damage could not be seen. The driver skillfully jockeyed the pallet around so that the hole could not be seen. He brought the pallet into my shop where it barely made it in far enough to close the overhead door. The overhead door was then closed with the hole facing toward the door with about 4" between the door and the damaged side of the carton. The temperature that day was -2 degrees, so we were both in a hurry to get the pallet into the shop. I was in a hurry because I didn't want to allow heat to escape and the freezing air to enter. The driver was in a hurry for obvious reasons. I then inspected the carton as he was trying to make his escape and noticed the mammoth hole in the...
Overall, I was impressed with this table saw. Everything went together according to the instructions. In some reviews I had read, some people had problems with assembly and also didn't have enough parts/hardware. That was not my case, I felt the instructions were complete, accurate to the product and guided me step by step through the assembly and alignments. Pro: Cast iron trunnions, belt drive, T-slot miter gauge, accurate and easy to move T-shaped fence. The riving knife, blade guard and anti-kickback pawls are on one assembly and easy to remove.

Con: Blade alignment was difficult as the trunnions had to be loosened and the whole assembly physically moved, in the close confinement of the cabinet that was very difficult. The blade alignment should have been...
I purchased the Shopfox Hybrid TAble Saw #1824 several months ago. After some issues with the shippers and delivery problems (long, steep driveway in ice and snow season), it arrived. Although I have just now completed the assembly, I want to comment on the company's outstanding technical assistance staff (Andrew). I had several problems with assembly of parts that appear different in the mnual than in reality and a major issue with getting the saw to run. I can't say enough about the support and assistance I (a novice, certainly with electrical issues) received. It appears that the switch was wired incorrectly and/or the wiring diagrams in the mnual should be revised. However, the step by step problem analysis and solution were excellent and, in time, the saw was buzzing happily.
