Anyone thinking about this saw should do a search on it first.  I tried the Felker before I spent the extra to get an MK.

I as well as several of my friends have the 10" Harbor Freight saw. Put a good lapidary blade on it and it is much better than any used saw like the one on EBAY in my opinion.  Plus, you have to pay shipping on the EBAY one.  Look for a 25% off coupon and you have a great deal.

   I bought a Harbor Freight for $217 over the Holidays. The blade was $31. It is thick and sturdy but I do not plan on cutting expensive slabs with it. The thing is awesome and has so many uses. No more bending blades on my small trim saws with big slabs that will not fit. Trimming fossil plates is a breeze. And now I can do the tile floor in the basement that the wife wants.

Felker tile saw is my favorite tile saw, it's super easy to true up, calibrate to cut parallel and true. I have six saws, four felkers and two mks. The mks are built very well, tanks, but it's a pain in the ass to work on them, if they start to cut out of square. trimming slabs for cabs, both saws will work great.
