Curbly Giveaway: Craftsman 10" Laser Trac Table Saw ($349 value)


If you're like me, always trundling over to the neighbor's garage to borrow time on his table saw, then this is the giveaway you've been waiting for. This week, we've teamed up with the folks at Craftsman to give you guys a really solid, 10" Table Saw with Laser Trac (model 21807). This thing retails for almost 350 bucks, and the reviews on it are overwhelmingly good (seriously, look for yourself, it's one of Consumer Research's best buys)

Last weekend, our own Chris Gardner was on a fun online TV called the Craftsman Experience, showing off his mad tooling skills, so we're excited to let you have a chance to win one for yourself.
