    How kind of you to so graciously allow OP his opinion! Perhaps if you read the full original post you would see why the original machine is a dud. Your logic is flawed, the fact the original is a dud has nothing to do with anything that came after it? My opinion is confined to the machine that I purchased and that you have never seen, nor used. That original machine is so not-useful it sits in a dusty box in a storage yard. I have not tried to sell it as I would not be so unkind.
    I have no opinion on the latest machine, nor on the supplier as a whole, so have offered no further comments but, since you stick your oar in I will do so now: perhaps novices could keep their opinions to themselves about machines they have no experience of!

    Sir
    "How kind of you to so graciously allow OP his opinion" then "since you stick your oar in I will do so now: perhaps novices could keep their opinions to themselves ..."! When posted on a public forum for all and sundry to read, your remarks are rude and should have been directed to me via PM! We are BOTH entitled to our opinions and MOST IMPORTANTLY the freedom to express them.

    As this is my first and final communication with you, the last word is yours - make it good!

    Hi Dave,

    I hope you are well and are coping with all that has happened last year you have been in mine and Meliss's thoughts.

    Thank you for answering the questions on the forums.

    Yes I have just made a change that you suggested in the mitre saw arrow and lowered it so it only sits a mm or so off the bed but we couldn't do the holes in the fence. We have also designed a more dust proof laser housing.

    In saying that we are gearing up to launch our newest model 255mm mitre saw in a few weeks which as you suggested has holes in the fence so you can fix a sacrificial. fence. I really appreciate the suggestions you made on the saw, it makes a huge difference. Let me know if you would like to be one of the product testers as your opinion is always very valuable.

    I have a couple of new product that will be launching in march that im sure you will be interested in seeing that are right up your ally.

    Thanks
    Sam

    Be more than happy to test it for you

    Thankyou for your thoughts

    Good to see Swarts continues to move forward.

    Gave the multitool a workout on a recent job. It worked a treat. The other guy had a bosch. I had to fix his mistakes. Not sure if it was the tool or the user. Think it may have been the user but Swarts came to the rescue. Therea a floor thread in here that mentions it.

    Does anyone else notice the handle gets quite warm after the saw has been on for a while? I have to remember to turn it off at the end of the day or the handle is hot the next day. All that is in the handle is the switch for the laser.

    i have heard of something like this but it was another brand. Cant say for certainty but think it was a ryobi and yes something to do with the laser

    I bought one of these 12" compound mitre saws from Swarts, my main concern at the time of making the decision to buy from these guys, was the fact that they are certainly NOT in my local shopping centre, but I took the punt everything would be OK, well the saw arrived in double quick time, after about a week after unpacking I noticed the calibrated decal on the pivot was peeling, I sent Samuel Jones the manager an email, I received a reply within the hour, notwithstanding the message I sent was at about 8 pm, the next morning another message saying new Decals in the post! 3 days later they were in my hand! This guy is amazing and extremely diligent, so full marks for that one.

    THE SAW

    It was "almost" good to go out of the box, nothing major just a few minor tweaks, having done those, the saw was sitting idle for 2 months at which time I had it outside in daylight and noticed a "tiny" hairline crack in the casting at the rear of the baseplate, so once again I contacted Samuel, sent a photo for him to assess, the very next morning a new baseplate was in the hands of a courier, 3 days and it was here, have since fitted the plate and dine an alignment and all is good, have spent the last week using it quite extensively, for what these saws cost I personally think it is a complete "Steal" it is accurate, effortless to use, quite user friendly, give excellent clean cuts in both hard and softwoods, all the functions on this saw are working perfectly with NO slop/PLAY in any of it's modes, the only "gray" area if any on this saw is that unlike my previous saw the casting is somewhat thin, however I do not think that under "normal" use this saw will ever fault, I am sure it is quite strong in it's construction, however if you chuck it out of an upstairs window into your ute below, then possibly you may encounter some issues !, otherwise, buy with confidence, if for no other reason Mr Samuel Jones is a great guy to deal with, and I am well pleased with the end result.

    You must have bought one in the brief instant that they were actually available. Every time I look at their webpage it says "Out of stock" for this saw.

    What's the go Mr Swarts?

    Howdo all.Well I bought one of these Swarts 12" blade units a couple days before moving to Tassie. Been using it to cut wall frames & seasoned 80 y o blackwood floor boards. 2000W motor & double bevel made doing these jobs easy compared to using my `04 Triton circular saw which I love using also. gordo
