A saw designed for precise, straight cuts, with a height adjustable and tilting saw blade, up to 45°. It is made for the fine mechanic, model builder, mould making, toy manufacture, architect, model carpenter and fitter. A variety of optional blades allow it to cut a wide range of materials, such as wood, non-ferrous metals, plastics, Plexiglas, PC cards, foam and many others. All load bearing parts and plane-milled table are made of die-cast aluminium making the FET saw very stable.
The table and drive lift for easy access for cleaning or changing the saw blade. The micro-adjustable, precise cut length stop allows cuts as small as 0.1mm to be made and as deep as 22mm. The saw blade, which can be pivoted by 45°, makes the cutting of double mitres possible when used with the angle stop. The FET is driven by a special DC motor with Optibelt toothed belts connecting it to the main ball bearing supported shaft. Standard equipment supplied with the saw includes a 24 tooth hard metal-equipped saw blade 80 x 1.5 x 10mm. A push stick and a non-slotted polycarbonate sawing table inset for tight tolerances between saw blade and table when cutting small parts. The FET has a dust adaptor suitable for connection to a vacuum for dust free working.

chop sawI have this saw for a few years now with no problems , I have modified saw to operate as a normal mitresaw & removed the vice , also has its own stop fence & fine angle adjuster, I do a lot of segmented work & this saw has changed my world of segmented small work . If Proxxon converted saw they would sell one to every segmented woodturner , it is a dream to work with & has never given me any problems in about 6 years & it is used very often with a 36 tooth tungsten blade & no sanding of segments the cut is so fine , so well done to Proxxon

Disappointing, but adequate.Good specs but screams "Made in Taiwan". Poor QC in manufacture. Different faults in different machines.

Very pleased with this purchaseFirst of all, I must advise any readers of this review that I am a complete novice at fine wood work. I have recently started to make trinket boxes and the like and so bought this saw to aid me in this. I have found the saw to be excellent, the fence adjusts easily to 90 degrees and the cut is as smooth as I could wish for. I am sure with progress in my ability that this saw will always match my needs.

ClangersAlthough the saw as it comes out of the box performs well, you are in for problems when you want to use it with the fine cut blade. Fitting the blade itself requires retaining the shaft with an Allen key while you undo a cheese head nut - with the same Allen key! Two different sizes are supplied! Secondly, as the fine cut blade is thinner than the standard blade, when changed, and the cheese head nut is re-tightened, the blade can still be revolved by hand and therefore will not cut as it stops when meeting resistance.
