Skilsaw SPT70WT-22 a very nice saw for the money
This is a great saw, very powerful, and well laid out. I have used it for about a month now and have not had any issues with alignment of the blade to the miter slots. The miter gauge is plastic and cheaply made. I plan to replace that with a better option soon. I have the saw mounted in a table that I built, so I am not using it like a "job site" saw. The dust collection port works, but you will have tons of saw dust around the left side of the saw where the motor is located. Overall I would definitely recommend the saw.

The saw works great so far how ever I am disappointed that there is no way to lock blade for depth I have made several shaker doors and the blade slowly lowers it self while running.
I have been attaching a c clap to the bottom of the handle to counter weight the rotation. this seams to help but making close tolerances very difficult.

Good saw, could be better
I've owned this saw for a year now. Let me start out by saying I love the power of the saw. As far as portable table saws go, it can't be beaten. It'll take a damp 2x6 cedar and rip it without bogging down at all. Can't complain about that. However, and this is a BIG however, the "Stay-true" fence is an awful design. It is NOT true. I have to check both sides and adjust accordingly before clamping it in place, it's really no better than me putting a straight edge with two clamps across the table. That kind of a thing wastes a lot of time on a project and is very frustrating. I like that it's removable and stores under the saw. Another bother with it though is that if you are doing angled cuts on both sides of a board, the fence sticks up off the table just enough that there is a tendency for the board to slide under the fence and ruin your cut. I did that twice before I realized what was happening. The guard and pawls that come with the saw are adequate and they do what they're supposed to do. They are a little hard to get on and off but once you figure out how they work, it's not so bad. The height and angle adjustments are nice and quick to use. I do find that the saw makes an almost mild grinding sound when running in an angled position, does not hurt performance though. All in all my real complaints with this saw are all to do with the fence. Rack and pinion is the way to go. If you were to buy an aftermarket fence system then this saw is a real performer. It works hard just like the wormdrive circular saws.

Nice saw... could be a bit nicer
This is a pretty nice saw. It bears up well under heavy use, and the separately purchased stand holds things very steady. It would be nice if the sawdust collector had a few fittings so that it could be easier to fit to existing or new hoses. The riving knife has a weird lockdown system. The first time I used it it felt like it was solid but when I turned the saw on the knife dove down into the blade and everything came to a grinding halt. Fortunately Skilsaw riving knives and Diablo blades are tough and there was no permanent damage. The saw is much louder than my old Delta, but I'm really quite happy with it.

An intermediate user can grow into this.
This is my first table saw in this class of saws. Before this I had a sub $100 Ryobi 10in. and it fared well for what I needed it for but as my needs went from basic door trim and shelves to relatively complex cabinet/drawers/shelving/decking and crafts with the kids that saw showed why it was under $100. I needed a machine that I could grow into. Something that wouldn't discourage me from wanting to do the work due to its limitations. I read review after review, watched a couple dozen YouTube reviews and the like and found that the majority of people that put this Skil Saw to the test were more than satisfied. There were some that thought better of other brands in the same class but their gripes were well beyond what mattered to me. I've already completed a few projects since I got this unit including an outfeed table that this saw now sits in and I'm more than pleased with the results. There's no way I could have done them on my old saw. The design is good though I'm a bit puzzled by the angle of the mounting/anchor holes. Why they're not perpendicular at 90 degrees has me flustered. I'll have to research the why on that one. The unit is weighty but light enough to pick up with little effort. The color scheme is not flashy or bright. I really like the all around appearance. My kids say it looks like a serious machine. Which is good and I tell them it is. Some of the other units I looked at look like a tween chose the colors. If it doesn't look serious, the kids won't see it seriously. My 11 year old daughter has made a few cuts with it and now wants to make stuff with me. Very cool. So ultimately I'm a growing DIYer with kids and and a big imagination. This saw exceeds my expectations and I hope to get my kids building some things aside from my general home improvement projects.

Underpar Fence Quality, Superb Torque
I bought this saw back in January to replace my 10" DeWalt portable table saw. I was looking forward to using it in some new projects around the house during summer. I'm by no means someone who uses this professionally in a job site, but rather at my own home projects - sometimes helping friends when they need an able body who knows his way around saws and carpentry.
This past weekend, I took it out of the box and put it into use. The Diablo blade is a nice addition, as well as the light and easy to setup stand. It has power, but I can only say I was very disappointed at the quality at the fence, and its system. It feels solid, but I just couldn't get it to be completely square, with about 1/32" off + which resulted in poor finishing of a couple of furniture pieces I've been building. I think the pinion system used by DeWalt on its table saws is also far superior. I was disappointed how counterintuitive the Skilsaw system is compared to Dewalts, so much that I am now regretting selling my DeWalt to buy this.

Junk
Purchased this piece of garbage today. If you want a saw that can cut a straight line this is definitely not the saw for you. I’m a very experienced woodworker and couldn’t manage to get the blade parallel to the miter slot. closest I got was 0.013”. This may not sound like much but it is especially if you try to make a simple 45 degree miter.... good luck lol. Even if you get lucky enough to get this thing parallel it’s not gonna last a simple bump of the table changes the alignment.
Pros
Beast of a motor
Lightweight
Cons
1/32 runout
Won’t stay parallel to the miter slot (if you can even get it there
Blade orientation changes anytime you adjust blade hieght, bevel, riving knife/splitte, store any tools.
Barely accurate enough for framing

Great saw - period
Ive used this saw for everything from mahogany to everyday pine 2x4s. Rip fence is great and securely locks into place & also conveniently stores on the bottom side of the saw. Has a lot of power never had an issue. The stand ( w/o wheels ) is also great and sets up in a matter of seconds. Almost bought a Bosch - glad I didn’t. Great saw buy it you won’t regret it!

Great Saw
I've had this saw for a couple of months and used it for a variety of small shop projects. It seems sturdy and well-made. I'm not a seasoned woodworker by any means, but I like how it works so far.

I appreciate the little nooks inside the saw carcass which hold all of the accessories. It took me a little while to figure out how to attach the blade guard, but I eventually found a you tube video. It would be helpful if something like that could be made for this saw's page on the Skil site.

So far I really like the saw, but I have two complaints.

The first complaint is the fence. Well, the fence itself is good and there is nothing wrong with it per se. However, the much more expensive SPT99-11 has a rack and pinion fence whereas that isn't an option on this saw. But, I guess you get what you pay for so I can't complain too much about that.

The second, and more serious complaint, is dust collection. I have a small Ridgid shop vac with a 1 7/8" hose and I can not figure out how to attach this to my saw. I bought a hose diameter adapter kit from Ridgid, but that didn't solve my problem. Any thoughts?

Fence issue
This is a powerful saw and one of the best portable ones that accept dado. However, I don’t like the fence mechanism, i wish I could have adjust the fence like the new model. The fence doesnt align perfectly.

1. Does this saw support dado stacks? If yes, 6 or 8 inch?
2. Is there a dado and zero clearance throat plate and stand available? If yes, I need ordering info and pricing.
3. Is this saw mainly used for construction, or can it also be used to build furniture?
Thank you.
Rob on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: According to skilsaw.com
1. Yes it will support a Dado stack, up to 8" diameter but only 1/2" wide. The arbor will not accept anything wider.
2. The zero clearance and Dado inserts should be available soon. I'm not sure if they are the same as those on the Bosch gts1032 or not. From others experience, however, the Leescraft inserts should be much better than the originals.
3. This saw is designed with construction in mind. It should be plenty powerful for some larger work, though, as it was designed to allow trim carpenters to install cabinetry and trim so it should be sufficient for some detail work. The biggest concern for furniture construction will be the accuracy of the blade and fence and the size of the table. A cabinet saw is the preferred choice for furniture construction. Cabinet saws are quite a bit more expensive because they are much larger, heavier, and more accurate than these smaller saws.
