This table saw is a larger version of the TS-200-2 and shares the same attributes as its smaller cousin of quiet running, powerful performance and compact dimensions. Fitted with a 250mm 40T TCT Axcaliber blade, the TS-250M-2 has a maximum depth of cut of 76mm, making it a great option for larger home projects. Adequate power is supplied by a 1.5kW, 230V induction motor. Both blade height and tilt controls operate smoothly and are conveniently placed with a simple lock to set the blade tilt. The heavy, cast iron table is ground flat to create a smooth top surface and the full length fence features a sub-fence which can be positioned for rip or crosscut work, or re-set for smaller cutting tasks. The fence can also be set more accurately using a fine width control.
The basic table saw can be bench mounted and is supplied with a rip fence, mitre fence together with dust extraction hoses. Owing to the small hose diameters, a vacuum extractor works best with this machine. The mitre fence can also be used either side of the blade which is very useful when making 45° left or right hand mitre cuts.
There’s a selection of optional extras; a leg stand which gives a table height of 880mm, a right hand extension table kit allowing an extra 600mm of width, as well as a sliding table kit with a cast iron carriage, complete with mitre fence, work clamp and a very useful 915mm of travel.
A complete kit version is also available that includes all of the above at a moderate cost saving.
With the ability to add a range of accessories to the TS-250M-2, this may be the only table saw a Hobby user requires.

Saw is compact with reasonable build qualityI just want to start by saying that I am not an expert but I have noticed some issues with this saw.

Needed a few tweeks -but ok now.I bought the basic saw and stand, as extension table was too wide for the space I have and I prefer my home made cross cut sledge to the sliding tale accessory.

Less than ImpressedI bought the full kit in 2014 and it was my first table saw. Like other reviewers there are issues. After 18 months of occasional use (although there was one week of 'trade' use) these are my gripes: 1). The riving knife and dust hood have never worked satisfactorily. It works without the blade hood. 2). Dust extraction is poor even with powerful Jet extractor. 3). The fence has never been 100% true. 4). The fence securing clamp has penetrated through the nylon washer and disfigured the rail. 5). The driving belt slackens rather too easily so out of the ordinary maintenance is needed. It is a entry level table saw but if you can afford it get a Jet or a higher performance saw.

Nothing but troubleThe machine is not accurate and will not stay accurate, the saw i had before this was a 3rd of the price and was more powerful and i never had any trouble with setting it up accurately.
