Very good deal.For the price this machine is outstanding. I set it up with no trouble at all. The trial cuts up to one inch, no problem. I then cut down to one eighth square. As a machine for light work, super.

A Cute Piece of Machinery but.................. !I have owned my model for some years now. I went for it because of the Brand name but it was somewhat disappointing. The Wheels are Out-of-true with sufficient run-out to give a vibration and a wobble in the blade that is annoying to say the least. It also adds to wear and tear generally. Another point I found is that the guides are difficult to align and set. The wobble in the blade does not help. I am sure the machine was not checked before leaving the production plant. Besides, I cannot understand why for a couple more £'s, branded machines are sold with such substandard blades that are shameful. I replaced it with one from a set I bought with the appropriate spec. for the job at hand and it went through 45mm of Beech-wood like a breeze with good accuracy. The motor, Table and the Chassis are built well enough.

Ok for small piecesIt's not bad I'm terms of value and cuts small pieces well, such a pen blanks, knife blanks, anything 1" or less, however trying to cut 2" plus pieces us a real nightmare.

Very good value for the moneyI've had one of these saws for about 3 years now. It does all it says it will do. It isn't a large machine it's a hobby machine, it's perfect for tracing small shapes.i agree that it won't cut 2" timber but then that's not what it was built for. Cuts 1" timber no problem , just let it work at its own pace.

ExcellentI am very pleased with my choice, took me about an hour to set it up, I have made trial cuts and I am more than happy with the results. When I set the table to 45 degrees it was bang on, without any adjustment!!. I have read the other comments and believe there is no point in expecting to win a motor cycle race with a bicycle.
