Check the blade

Following my earlier review, I tried a PRM24 blade and the accuracy is very good. Lesson: use the right blade! Misses 5 stars due to the ill-thought out clamp

Not accurate

I have to agree with all that Mr McLennan's review says. I bought this saw to use for segmented woodturning where accuracy is vital. As he says, the saw set up is bang on but the cut is not vertical. I have used a PRM32 blade so will try a stouter blade before giving up.

Not fit for purpose!

Having passed on my trusty 25 year old Axminster saw to my son I thought I would invest in a high quality replacement from Nobex. Oh dear - big mistake! This saw is simply incapable of cutting a straight line in a piece of soft pine skirting board. This Proman is very flimsy compared to my old Axminster and there is too much play around the plastic blade guides. The result is that the blade moves off line from the start and the resulting vertical cut is curved not straight. If you were only cutting an 8mm picture frame then the error would probably not be too significant but on a 100 mm skirting board the effect is catastrophic. I have carefully measured the detent angles and the verticality of the pillars but they are spot on. I cannot see anything actually wrong with the manufacture of this saw and I think the problem is just with the flimsiness of the design. Also, as noted by another reviewer, the clamps are essentially useless. That was not a problem for me as I have enough clamps to hand but it is another example of the poor functionality of the design which is unacceptable in a tool of this price. Overall I am stunned that a company I had always regarded as the "Rolls Royce" of manual mitre saws could produce something as poor as this.

As ever the response from Axminster to my problem was exemplary and the saw is now heading back for a refund.

keep oil on chrome work

a good enough saw, but after leaving it idle in the corner of a DRY workshop for a few months all the chrome plating has started to rust !
I only have it about 2 years .

Nobex Proman

I cut brass mitres as part of my job and Nobex Proman 110 is the tool I choose.
Assembly instruction could be better, but the saw is perfect every time. It's anything but junk.
Axminster Tools are a flawless company to deal with.
