Description

In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The Axminster Trade AW10BSB2 Saw Bench is a robust machine, constructed largely from cast iron and heavy gauge steel. The 254mm blade gives a cutting depth of up to 75mm, and is amply powered by a 2.2kW 1ph induction motor. The cast iron table gives great strength and rigidity as well as providing a smooth working surface. A full length rip fence, locked onto rails at the front and back of the table, and also with a micro positioning adjustment ensures straight rip cuts. A mitre fence slides in a T-slot groove in the table. Both the blade height and tilt controls are conveniently located and lock in position.

The standard saw has a steel right hand side support table included; this gives 610mm cut to the fence, allowing full sized boards to be cut lengthways. A pressed steel feed-off table is also supplied, as is an Axcaliber 50T TCT general purpose blade. Dust extraction is provided on both the crown guard and under the blade for efficient dust control.

Further options are available: (1) a kit of two cast iron extension tables that can be fitted either one each side or both to the right of the blade, complete with longer fence rails; (2) a fully functioning sliding table kit to allow large board materials to be cut. When both options are fitted this saw bench becomes a very useful machine for most jobs in the workshop.

There is also a complete kit version that includes all of the above at a moderate saving of cost.

Good Value

I bought this saw 18 months ago and overall it has performed well. For the money you would be hard pressed to find something better on the market.
There are numerous areas that let the saw down out of the box and potential options Axminter could offer:
1. Trying to adjust the blade to run parallel with the t-slot is a real faff as the motor mounting bolts need to be released. It would be so much easier to be able to adjust the table to the blade rather than the motor to the table.
2. The steel out feed table is useless if trying to crosscut with the mitre gauge as the mitre gauge cannot pass the the saw blade. Dump it and make your own with some plywood and routed t-slots.
3. The mitre gauge supplied is really poor quality, upgrade to the UJK mitre gauge is well worth it.
4. Not the easiest design to make your own zero clearance insert plates, it can be done but would be much easier if Axminster were to offer neoprene blanks.
5. The NVR switch is poor quality, had mine replaced 3 times under warranty due to the saw not staying powered on.
6. The blade out of the box has to many teeth to rip hardwoods, upgrade to a good quality 30 or 40 tooth blade a must.
7. No Axminster option to swap out the riving knife if wanting to use a thin kerf blade.

After some simple modifications / upgrades I have managed to get the saw now working well.
I must also add that the after sales service from Axminster had been excellent.

Great saw bench

I bought this machine about 3 months ago, just the basic 10" blade model without extensions or sliding table. I found the assembly instructions easy to follow and was ready to start using it within 4 hours of unpacking. I also bought a trolley base as I have a small workshop that needs to be an adaptable space whereby I can push the saw bench out of the way when not in use. It's surprising how easy it is to move 180kg with one of these! The saw feels very solid and robust, the fence is superb and alignment was spot-on without any adjustment. The machine is only let down by a poor quality mitre gauge, and I replaced mine soon afterwards with a UJK one that was on special offer at Axminster. The micro adjuster on the fence is pretty useless and I will just not bother with it. As others have said dust extraction is not great, but it is inevitable that a certain amount will get flung into the air with a 10" blade rotating at 3500 rpm, so wearing a face mask is a must in any case.

Overall I would have no hesitation in recommending the AW10BSB2, it has transformed my capacity for ripping or cross-cutting and will be the mainstay of my workshop.

Good saw for the price!

Bought this saw from a Swedish dealer wired for 3-phase voltage outlets. Dead on straight and 90 deg cuts directly from the box! Not a heavy user - I have used it now and then for the last 18 months or so. But as I went in to my shop yesterday to rip some mdf I noticed that the back of the blade is a bit closer to the fence/table than the front. This means, of course, that the pieces I'm ripping bind up a little bit at the rear end of the blade and the cuts are no longer as clean as in the beginning (tearing appears at rear end). And the cuts are not "even enough" lengthwise either. When measuring width after a rip cut, front and back end differs too much for me to be satisfied. The rear end of the blade is at least some 0,5 mm closer to the mitre slots/fence than the front end. And that’s a 10-inch blade.
Does anyone here know how to adjust the blade to the table (or vice versa)? Or maybe the fence to the table/blade? The saw was in much better “calibration” when new. It is a good saw, but as of now it needs a little tweaking! =)

Better than expected

Upgraded up to this after struggling along with site saws. Was surprised at the quality and power of the motor, the fence is brilliant and very easy to adjust quickly.
It took me 4 hours odd to set up, struggled a bit with instructions but managed to wing it.

My only gripe is the rather gimmicky magnifying fence scale reader thing, having to strain to see through the cheap murky plastic is a bit annoying. Will make a new one with a clear piece of perspex. (my opinion is there's no need for it to be magnified- if you can't read the scale from eye height, maybe don't use machinery!?).

Great Saw

Previously had a site saw and this is a real step up. Had it for a month or so now and have probably put 4/5 hours into it without complaint. It's happily cutting hard wood up to 70mm without a fuss and the fence is really solid and didn't need any fettling out of the box.

Only downside is the assembly instructions, they're truly terrible managed to muddle through but they should be a lot better. Even an assembly video on here youcould watch and pause adds you build it would go a long way to making the process easier.

There's a quirk with it that you need to raise the blade up to the final cut height rather than down to it. As long's you bear it in mind it soon becomes habit.

I got the stock saw with no extension kit because my garage is a bit too small but easily added a 6 Inch extension wing in ply faced with mdf which has helped a lot with cuts on wider sheets. I also turned a little wooden knob for the bolt that holds the side access door closed otherwise you need a spanner every time younger to undo the bolt to open the door.
