In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This is an extremely compact table saw for the hobbyist, designed for maximum mobility and the minimum amount of storage space. Built around a welded steel box section frame, it has a pair of sturdy wheels and a telescopic handle to allow the saw to be easily moved around the workshop. The saw can also be stored vertically to save storage space and it has a folding steel stand which is easy to erect. The saw table is extruded aluminium and has a useful 645 x 140mm sliding table with 695mm of travel, which is useful when mitres are cut. The rip fence has two support rails and a clever flip-over function so that it can act either as a fence or wide board support rail. It’s powered by a 1,800W braked brush motor and will easily cut to its 90mm maximum cutting depth. Two dust extraction ports ensure that sawdust is removed when connected to a suitable vacuum extractor. The tools as well as the power lead are stored conveniently and all the controls are grouped together for ease of use. This saw can be used anywhere, without the need to have a dedicated space in the workshop and is supplied with a 36T general purpose saw blade.

Pretty good

I bought one of these in early 2013 and have used it a lot since. I think it's pretty good, though as it was my first and only table saw I have nothing to compare it with. Nevertheless I've been able to cut much African hardwood mainly rosewood on it with no trouble, and nowadays am cutting MDF and chipboard easily and with great accuracy. The problems I've had are (1) the table surface isn't entirely flat both sides of the blade. You can sand down one of the aluminium edges so that they fit better, and if you mainly use a cross cut sled you won't notice anyway; it doesn't matter when ripping something from one side only, of course; (2) like another reviewer, the wherl that raises and lowers the blade has got stuck a few times; (3) the blade on mine isn't perfectly parallel to the table; you can easily compensate for that by moving the ruler line at the side, which you use to set the fence. Ihad to transport my saw in an aeroplane and perhaps it got bashed about a bit. I think the dust ports work fine. I think the fence is capable of being set with great accuracy, down to a fraction of a mm if your eyes can bear that, but the fence itself feels a bit insubstantial. The ability, in a garage workshop, to be able to collapse and wheel it out of the way, is very useful. And when combined with roller stands on the in and outfeed sides, it can deal with large sheets even though it is small.

Generally good but dodgy blade height control

I have had this saw for about 12 months now and I use it every day and it is a great asset to my small workshop. I am pleased that it cuts well up to three inches of even hard wood. Mind you I need need to buy a new blade which was no real trouble. I had one major issue that is still not completely resolved, the blade height mechanism refused to work and became so stiff it refused to budge. Axminster took it back and after about 6 weeks it was repaired and returned unfortunately with an adjudger on the fence was broken, but it's not one I use often. Even now the height mech will drift loose and the blade will drop so I have had to tape across the height adjustment wheel to stop it moving. Also I had to drill a better access hole to get to the roving knife hex screw which makes the removal easier than trying to undo and unscrew the bolt using a right angled Allen key. Overall though a good buy.

Really impressed with this Table Saw

I've had this table saw for a few months now and used it quite a lot. I initially opted for the BTS10ST due to it having the ability to fold up when not in use, a great feature for a small workshop. Don't let the folding ability fool you though, this is a sturdy table. Another really good feature is the fence, you take the measurements off both sides then lock it in place which makes for a super accurate cut. I was dubious about this at first but now I think this is one of the best features. It's possible to rotate the fence itself to suit differing stock, for wide stock the fence rotates to offer a bottom seat to rest the edge of a wide board for example. On a final note dust extraction is very good too. I have mine connected to a Camvac and the combination works a treat. Spend the time to set it up correctly on day one and this table saw will be an enjoyable tool to use.

Great Upgrade

I bought this machine as an upgrade from a decidedly dodgy inverted circular saw arrangement for some hobby level woodworking. I have to say there is a marked improvement in my output! Make sure you find the small cam wheel adjuster for the angle adjustment of the blade so that you can get it to a true vertical to the table. If you look at the blade adjustment handle area you will see a recessed allen bolt. if you look around the back you will see that this is connected to a small cam that the vertical adjuster butts onto, adjusting the angle of the zero stop. Other setup was really simple and once on it's legs the whole saw feels stable. I've been ripping down 4m planks no problem with a catch table set up behind.
One area I feel that slightly lets down the saw is dust extraction. From the underneath to the rear there is a 60mm outlet and from the top there is a 38 mm from the blade guard (no hose). I've noticed on the other Axminster table saws that they include a hose from the blade guard and bring it together with the main waste at the rear with a moulded T piece. Why don't we get that with this saw? The blade seems OK at the moment and changing is a doddle.
All in all a good saw - especially at the price I paid when on offer.

A cut above your average budget saw

I ordered this saw in December and have had a few weeks now to test it out, so what do I think about this saw ?
The Axminster service was excellent as you would expect, thank you Axminster, the saw was well packed in it's cardboard box and polystyrene shell and nothing damaged.

I had read the reviews about how difficult the stand was to put together but I found that with a bit of forethought it went together very quickly and with ease, with no missing nuts and bolts, setting the saw up took me about 30 minutes.

The Instruction manual is very basic and does not cover everything, there are a few things about this saw that could do with a clear explanation and there are some items that the manual does not cover at all and leaves you quite perplexed.

It took me about 15 minutes to set up and true up the rip fence, mitre fence and blade then it was ready for the first cut and I must say I found it all to be correctly set with little adjustment needed.

The saw has performed very well, it rip cut through some 75mm hardwood with ease and the fence scale is accurate, the only problem I have is the riving knife is slightly out pinching the wood up against the fence, a small bit of adjustment will be necessary to get it in line with the blade, there is a bit of slack in the mitre fence track but you get that in all low budget saws, but the mitre sliding table works very well and is accurate enough for my needs plus in time I will be making a sled for it.

As for the size, it is perfect for my little Workshop/shed, it is compact enough to fit in to a small space but robust enough to meet my demands and if I want to move it outside for sheet work then I have the wheels to do that for me saving my old back.
Overall this is a fantastic saw for me, it has some great features, it is well thought out, the price was good and it fits in my workshop and does what I need of it.
