Description

In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

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 fitted with a brake. 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.

You get what you pay for

I went for this as i had limited space and wanted something that would do the job. honestly if you are thinking about panel work eg fitted cupboards/wardrobes its gonna a bit tricky even with the full kit (sliding table and extension). I make furniture of solid timber so it turned out ok with a finer blade (80t). The setup is a real pain as many posts have said, and my only gripe is the blade alignment.. its very tricky to set, and tends to move on the rear if you put allot of thick material through it. Dust extraction is crap out of the
box but not rocket science to fix. Would i buy it again.. for something that can be moved around and the fact that everything in the price bracket is basically the same thing from china etc then yes.. works for me but if you are looking for accuracy to the .5mm you will spend allot of time setting it up.. and probably never quite get there.
As i work with solid timber i generally use it for rough dimensions and then shooting board to refine where needed.
Hope that helps.
oh ye ps 0 clearance inserts are a pain as well.. you can make one for 90 and another for 45 with the blade raised to max.. again not rocket science its just a pain

Great little package

Having had this saw for a few months now, there are certain items that need addressing before trying to cut anything, the most important is getting the blade parallel with the fence and mitre slots, the manufacturer has addressed the previous difficulty in moving the blade/saw and installed threaded plates under the table to replace the inaccessible nuts previously used, this has made the alignment easy from above the table.

As with all table saws the extraction is inadequate, this is no exception, if contemplating this saw then reading this thread: http://www.ukworkshop.co.uk/forums/axminster-ts250-2-modifications-t102284.html will help you fettle this saw to a very good standard, it will cut straight and mitres to a standard that will satisfy anyone at this level of machine.

Great bit of kit

I have to take issue with the last review who seems to be using this saw as a portable site saw, it was never meant to be portable, the cast iron table is of adequate thickness and is about the same as all the other saws I considered prior to getting this one, what is thin is the recess for the blade clearance insert, a 3mm aluminium insert made to fit is perfect, the original plastic insert does indeed have to be removed when cutting at an angle, as per the instructions and what is in-bossed on the plastic insert itself. The riving knife does protruded above the blade to accommodate the crown hood, if trench cutting is required use a Router table, a saw table is the wrong machine to use.

I would have given this saw five stars all the way through, but for the dust extraction I have still given it four stars under the heading "Features" because of this no lower as this saw is no different to even the most expensive saw i.e. inadequate, as another review I have fitted the big mouth dust hood under the table, this required only a few mm taking off one edge to fit between the support rails, this has transformed the dust extraction, after ripping down eight piece's of 100mm x 50mm x 2.4M I had only a coffee cup full of sawdust on the top of the table, no sawdust escaped underneath, having sealed all the holes with duct tape, this is no different to other table saws I have had, I use the FM300BC extractor and it makes short work of all the dust from the machines in my workshop.

The table extension is almost essential to make any meaningful use of the saw with larger material, in addition a longer fence is supplied with it which makes it even better,
the sliding table can be set very accurately to enable mitres to be formed in one pass, all in all I am very pleased with my purchase, even though the international delivery was a complete nonsense, loaded onto a van on a pallet and the driver was a young girl, this thing weighs 86Kg plus packaging, try lifting that out of a van without a pallet truck.

Cheaply badly made rubbish. AVOID

Not even cut a piece of wood yet and I already regret this purchase.

Quality of manufacture is appalling, cross threaded bolts, a twisted riving knife and even the shims supplied had burrs all over them so they weren't flat. If you've ever bought cheap Chinese rubbish tools off ebay this is like that or worse. Shiny pictures hide the underlying shoddy tool.

It's so badly made I can't even get the blade straight as it's binding in its housing. I can't steer you away from this hard enough. Do yourself a favour and get something else.

Unfortunately my mate set about it with a carbide burr to try and get it working or it would be going back!
