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. The rip fence is full length and is cam locked onto rails at the front and back of the table. It also has a sliding sub fence to make rip work safer and is also provided with a micro positioning adjustment to ensure accurate measurement. A mitre fence slides in a choice of T-slot grooves in the table either side of the blade. Both the blade height and tilt controls have decently large handles, are conveniently located and lock in position. A side access door is fitted to give easy access for maintenance.

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 when connected to a suitable extraction system.

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 many jobs in the workshop.

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

Review

This is my very first table saw, and i have to saw its absolutely perfect for my needs. The blade and alignment were spot on straight out of the box. I needed a saw to perform a lot or precision cuts and this has not let me down yet. The saw comes with a Axminster blade which I would highly recommend. The angle adjustment is the only aspect I would fault. But this would be with any saw. I simply use an electronic level to ensure my angle cuts are accurate. I would imagine the saw to last a life time with my usage. Would highly recommend and the Axminster service is one of the best I have encountered.

Great saw

This is a really great saw, powerful, extremely solid rip fence, and perfectly adequate mitre fence.

Mine came with the blade alignment spot on, but both fences needed adjustment.

Dust extraction is excellent when connected to a high volume extractor (chip extractor), ordinary vacuum will not do, as stated in the instructions.

Instruction illustrations are excellent (good to see Tom doing some real work!) but lacking in detail, for example there is no diagram to show orientation of the lower legs and removal of packing from the motor is not mentioned at all.

Still a good saw for the money, but...

...I could never really get the sliding table extension to work to the desired accuracy, and since in my little shop it was a little too demanding of valuable space I took it off. I suppose I could get it working properly if need be, but I made other ways to work around it rendering it virtually meaningless (and therefore in my case a stupid investment).
Last review I had a little tweaking to do due to misalignment (after a few months of use) of the blade to the table. A very serviceminded gentleman at Axminster support, within 24 h of my sending the request, instructed me as how to fix that, and sure enough: Now the blade and the fence are dead on parallell to the slots! The mitre gauge that came along with the saw "isn't really the best", but who would expect, right? I'm using pretty simple and cheap saw blades and I have a little run out (wobble) all the time. This may be due to irregularities in the arbor nut or bolt (I don't know which), but with zero clearance inserts and sleds one can work himself around that, I think.

So, finally final: This is a good saw for the price, but experienced woodworkers and furniture makers would want to spend a little (or not so little) more for another one. For me, as the hobbyist I am, I could never justify bying a Powermatic or a SawStop or something similar, so this will have to do. And I'm quite happy with that! =)

A great saw

Further to a previous review I have now used this for three months and (with the right blade) it is still a great saw. My main reason for commenting again is the sliding table accessory. It seemed a good idea to avoid the space requirement for a mitre saw, but has its drawbacks. It works well, is quick, accurate and moreover safe, and can cut much wider pieces than a mitre saw. The problems come when not cross cutting. It gets in the way! I have a 10 x 16 feet workshop and it's not really big enough. In use the table runs just above the level of the main deck and the distance from table to blade is too large for small pieces or jointing cuts, but too close to use the left hand mitre track. It also blocks the access hatch and taking it on and off regularly is not an option because it is incredibly heavy and has to be reset when put back on.

It's great when needed and can be a pain when not. Best to try before you buy!

Great saw

Been using this saw for few days now. Assembling was straight forward and after testing it's quite accurate. The only problem is dust extraction which isn't great but i found simple solution for that. Overall great saw
