    Chuck,
    I can't speak to the overall longevity or reliability, but I have used this model saw - when I lived in California. A company called MicroSemi had one in their shop/warehouse, and I used it there on several occasions. It seemed to be a solidly built tool, and had plenty of power. I used it at one of the lower speeds, for cutting brass, and it worked very well for that. For wood, you'll want to use it at its highest speed, though.

    Also, if you do win it, and need any help with loading it, I'm about twenty miles away. Seller says he's 25 miles North of Youngstown, and I'm about 8 or 10 miles Northwest of Youngstown. Let me know.
