  3. The blades are easy to change, and it comes with several adjustment knobs.

  6. Ability to cut in just about any directions, even angles.
  7. Comes with a large table for ease of use.
  8. The saw is a good purchase with respect to price and quality. There are certainly more expensive saws, but it offers a good quality for the price.

Delta Power Tools 40-695 Cons:

  1. The product might come with some issues right out of the box. There are concerns regarding the broken air hose, problems with the stand or outright refusal to work. Opinions suggest that some level of work needs to be done on the machine before it is operable. But once the problems are sorted, the machine works like a champ.
  2. Users can experience issues with the variable speed of the saw; this is resolved by contacting the customer care.
  3. The material hold-down needs some improvements. It doesn’t hold thin veneers well because the throat is too large.
  4. For ease of use, a foot pedal and a base mounted magnifying light might be required particularly among older people.
  5. The owner’s manual needs an update to reflect the current realities of the saw.
