I've seen similar items at Harbor Freight.  A couple of concerns:  (1) table is really small.  (2) probably under-powered.  (3) can you get additional/replacement saw blades? 

I'd recommend saving up and buying the Micro-Mark or Proxxon tilt arbor saw.  Get the Micro-mark sliding table for it, it makes for better and easier cross cuts.  The tilt feature is something I rarely use, but when I do use it, it's a lifesaver!  Of course, the Byrne saw is the top of the line.  https://www.byrnesmodelmachines.com

Thanks for the reply Dave
I wasn't looking to spend that kind of money and I realize ya get what ya pay for.
I have bought the HF model and it's junk, this seems to be a lot different than the HF stuff?
Yes they have blade available and it's only a few inches smaller than the Micro Mark .
At 130.00 I may give it a try, if nothing else I will repower it with a good sewing mc motor.
