A small precise mains driven modelling saw with an 8mm depth of cut using the standard 58mm diameter blade. It has a fully machined aluminium table top some 160 x 160mm mounted on a sturdy ABS base, and comes with a mitre fence and rip fence. There are 2 blades available for different materials, the 300108 alternating set for wood and plastics and the 300109 for fine cuts. There is a 34mm diameter dust extraction port at the rear of the machine.

Small, good for fine work and reasonable quality.I bought this saw essentially to cut 3mm birch ply sheets for art and craft projects. It manages this quite well although it is underpowered and reluctant to handle anything much thicker or harder, even so it has to be fed very slowly and carefully. It is small and quiet in operation and it's parallel guide is accurate enough allowing for a maximum guided width of around two and a half inches. I returned my first one after a month as it made strange knocking sounds when the motor started - Axminster repaired it but it still sounds the same so I guess it's normal for this model! Overall it benefits from being small, light and portable and is good for fine work and there is nothing similar available in the UK in the price range as far as I can tell.
