With any unlevel surface, gravity will be working against you. Practically, there isn't ever a perfectly level suface. So, most work tables have adjustable feet.

I think any soft surface allows any table to flex or twist out of square. And it's likely to happen each time you put weight on the table. Every time the ground gives, your table will be that much...

New 18V 6 1/2" Hitachi cuts deeper than a 7 1/2" CS

The new Hitachi 18v 6.5" is cordless, brushless, variable speed, and cuts deeper than nearly every 7.5" circular saw!

It has some quirky features but also some very good ones, too. It's definitely...

+1 on the Makita 5008 MAG for depth of cut and power.

Also, the Makita plunge saw is nice enough to make any Festool fan think twice and I think some have used it on a Festool rail.

I did purchase the anti-slip pads for the centipede sawhorse but have yet to use them. I haven't had a problem with the material wanting to move as I cut.
