Have a look at the Screwfix forum - there's quite a few generally good comments on this saw. It does look good value.
There's even a few recommendations on how to improve things with a few adjustments.
Cheers,

If my Ferm saw is anything to go by... be wairy of the throat plate. Fragile as hell and a country mile from flush with the table.

Thanks Mike.

Something of the plate was mentioned in the screwfix forum. I believe it was replaced with a homemade one, along with fence improvements.

Apparently the saw then makes up into a useful tool.

Yes the throat plate is rubbish and will soon break but its easy enough to make a new one and the other problem is the fence which is nut robust enough to stop the far end pushing away as you feed through the wood.
The easy answer for this is to clamp a small piece of wood against the far end to stop it pushing away. After saying all this the saw itself is very good for the money.
