In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This is an extremely compact table saw for the hobbyist, designed for maximum mobility and the minimum amount of storage space. Built around a welded steel box section frame, it has a pair of sturdy wheels and a telescopic handle to allow the saw to be easily moved around the workshop. The saw can also be stored vertically to save storage space and it has a folding steel stand which is easy to erect. The saw table is extruded aluminium and has a useful 645 x 140mm sliding table with 695mm of travel, which is useful when mitres are cut. The rip fence has two support rails and a clever flip-over function so that it can act either as a fence or wide board support rail. It’s powered by a 1,800W braked brush motor and will easily cut to its 90mm maximum cutting depth. Two dust extraction ports ensure that sawdust is removed when connected to a suitable vacuum extractor. The tools as well as the power lead are stored conveniently and all the controls are grouped together for ease of use. This saw can be used anywhere, without the need to have a dedicated space in the workshop and is supplied with a 36T general purpose saw blade.

Ok but some failings

I have had this saw for about 24 months and it is generally ok. However, the rising blade mechanism is very poor and eventually locked and the machine went back to Axminster for about 5 weeks and came back with a broken but still usable fastening handle on the fence. The rising mech was better but still is very temperamental it is both hard to adjust and yet is not stable when set, and I had to resort to taping the control spindle to stop it wandering. The roving knife is a real pain to remove and refit and does not encourage its full use because of this. The fence is ok but needs fixing at both ends to get it parallel to the blade. The mitre gauge is very flimsy and I built a sliding sled for 45 deg cuts. The tilt of the blade is quite accurate and I made some hexagon vases with great success.

The machine I bought was a Friday afternoon machine, bits missing and very awkward to put together. The major factor was an important star screw was misaligned and both joining parts are made of metal with no give ot wiggle room and consequently it was unsafe. I referred all this to Axminster (Nuneaton) who were as helpful as they could have been and suggested a substitute machine being delivered and the old one taken back. However, the machine could not be collect for some weeks hence, as I live 85 miles from the nearest Axminster shop. This frustrated me no end and I decided the following day to return the machine to Nuneaton myself (170 miles round trip) and see if they could give my any practical help. Again, as all my previous dealing with the Axminster staff Nuneaton, they were very understanding and extremely helpful. A long story short, they just replaced the machine and i set off home with another boxed saw and once home started to put it together. I have to say if I had received this machine first, I would have had very few problems and no return trip to Nuneaton. It went together easily with only minor hiccups. I would say that the Instruction manual needs a review, pictures are poor quality (but the manual on line is so much better, but i didn't know that then) and a fair amount of wording needs an English review. The machine is up and running now and has been used quite a lot and I have found it to be as described, accurate, smooth and relatively quiet, easy to move and store and in my opinion well worth purchasing. I can definitely comment the machine to you. More importantly though, I feel that the assistance and help received from the Axminster Nuneaton staff to be of top notch quality.

Pretty good

I bought one of these in early 2013 and have used it a lot since. I think it's pretty good, though as it was my first and only table saw I have nothing to compare it with. Nevertheless I've been able to cut much African hardwood mainly rosewood on it with no trouble, and nowadays am cutting MDF and chipboard easily and with great accuracy. The problems I've had are (1) the table surface isn't entirely flat both sides of the blade. You can sand down one of the aluminium edges so that they fit better, and if you mainly use a cross cut sled you won't notice anyway; it doesn't matter when ripping something from one side only, of course; (2) like another reviewer, the wherl that raises and lowers the blade has got stuck a few times; (3) the blade on mine isn't perfectly parallel to the table; you can easily compensate for that by moving the ruler line at the side, which you use to set the fence. Ihad to transport my saw in an aeroplane and perhaps it got bashed about a bit. I think the dust ports work fine. I think the fence is capable of being set with great accuracy, down to a fraction of a mm if your eyes can bear that, but the fence itself feels a bit insubstantial. The ability, in a garage workshop, to be able to collapse and wheel it out of the way, is very useful. And when combined with roller stands on the in and outfeed sides, it can deal with large sheets even though it is small.

Generally good but dodgy blade height control

I have had this saw for about 12 months now and I use it every day and it is a great asset to my small workshop. I am pleased that it cuts well up to three inches of even hard wood. Mind you I need need to buy a new blade which was no real trouble. I had one major issue that is still not completely resolved, the blade height mechanism refused to work and became so stiff it refused to budge. Axminster took it back and after about 6 weeks it was repaired and returned unfortunately with an adjudger on the fence was broken, but it's not one I use often. Even now the height mech will drift loose and the blade will drop so I have had to tape across the height adjustment wheel to stop it moving. Also I had to drill a better access hole to get to the roving knife hex screw which makes the removal easier than trying to undo and unscrew the bolt using a right angled Allen key. Overall though a good buy.

Really impressed with this Table Saw

I've had this table saw for a few months now and used it quite a lot. I initially opted for the BTS10ST due to it having the ability to fold up when not in use, a great feature for a small workshop. Don't let the folding ability fool you though, this is a sturdy table. Another really good feature is the fence, you take the measurements off both sides then lock it in place which makes for a super accurate cut. I was dubious about this at first but now I think this is one of the best features. It's possible to rotate the fence itself to suit differing stock, for wide stock the fence rotates to offer a bottom seat to rest the edge of a wide board for example. On a final note dust extraction is very good too. I have mine connected to a Camvac and the combination works a treat. Spend the time to set it up correctly on day one and this table saw will be an enjoyable tool to use.
