Industrial quality circular saw, primarily designed for rip work, compact in size but of very robust construction. Based around an all welded steel base with a heavy, finely ground, all cast iron table and amply powered by a mechanically braked induction motor. A small sliding table of cast iron running on an adjustable bearing system, complete with a mitre fence and a sliding support arm is a standard fitting, ideal for small boards or panels. This folds down out of the way if not required, saving space in the workshop. A rigid rip fence with cam action clamps, comprising a cast iron shoe with an extruded alloy fence rail giving a max capacity of 620mm to the blade is also standard. The shoe runs on two small nylon wheels, so adjustment is almost effortless. The power/saw head is mounted in a very rigid cast iron frame, the adjustments for rise and fall and blade tilt are via large, chromed steel hand wheels with locking facilities. It’s the little things that make the differences, such as a the table infill plate having levelling screws, the blade arbor being fitted with a captive locking pin to make blade changing easier, and the riving knife located by a cam lever, making fitting and adjustment so easy. Dust extraction is via a rear mounted 100mm port and a connection hose to the crown guard. A conveniently mounted switch box has a locking emergency stop button and features overload protection and individual phase fused protection. An additional optional extra is an overhead crown guard kit (508229), offering better protection and more efficient dust extraction from the blade area. A very worthwhile addition. This saw is simply perfect for the small general woodworking workshop, school technicians or maintenance departments requiring a capable, robust dimension saw. Supplied with Axcaliber Premium 28T rip blade N.B.16A supply required.

ExcellentThis Saw is Excellent, wanted a compact saw for my small workshop looked long and hard and this was the best I could find. It's a shame it is made in China and not in the UK.

Superb Saw!Used this saw for a year now, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The build quality is very high, setting up is very straight forward and you will be very impressed with the accuracy that you get from it. The fine adjustment is a really nice feature and the sliding table is accurate and smooth. I expect to be using this saw for many years to come. Worth every penny!

Top Quality SawI first purchased the Axminster 12" table saw with the extra extension tables and sliding carriage but the saw had a few issues and was returned and I purchased this one...Yes its a lot of money.. but you will not be disappointed with this saw, the sliding table glides along and cuts true and square the cast iron table top is true and flat and polished to a high standard, the guide fence stays true with no flex at the tip the motor is powerful and quite but you will need to upgrade to a C or D rated MCB as the standard household B rated does trip every now and then on start up.

Finally decided to buy itAfter much agonising over which saw to buy, I decided on the TSCE-12R after reading the reviews here and in woodworking magazines. The saw arrived very promptly and I set to assembling it. The instructions are, to say the least, brief but it is fairly obvious how it goes together but after plugging it into my new 16A supply, it tripped every time I tried starting it. Andrew at Axminster was extremely helpful and it was soon diagnosed that the saw needs a type C or type D circuit breaker not a domestic type B. Once changed the saw was fine and I am very happy with it. The build quality is excellent and it is very easy to set up to give accurate cut - much better than my old saw. I would not hesitate to recommend this saw and the Axminster service.

very good sawI couldn't decide between the mj12 panel saw and this nice little saw. Eventually made up my mind after going to see the saw in High Wycombe. Its so nicely made, everything is rock solid and I don't imagine having to buy a new saw for a very, very long time or ever. The mj12 is ok but is obviously built to a budget. As the blurb says, this is just the job for a small furniture workshop. The saw needs a bit of setting up and to do it properly it took several hours, but that's fine and sort of enjoyable. Ive named the saw 'old skool' because that sums it up nicely! Just need to sort out my 16amp supply now....
