In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

A well made, small table saw and ideal for use at home. Unusually, it’s powered by a smooth running, high torque, 1,100W induction motor which is also extremely quiet. A robust, cast iron table with a finely ground surface is fitted offering stability and accuracy. The 205mm TCT blade has a maximum cutting depth of 60mm, which is enough for most small furniture or garden projects. The controls are easy to operate, allowing the blade height and tilt to be set quickly and accurately. A full width fence is fitted together with a sub fence which can be used for for larger ripping or crosscut tasks, as well as being able to be re-positioned for smaller work.

The basic table saw can be bench mounted and is supplied with a rip fence, mitre fence together with dust extraction hoses. Owing to the small hose diameters, a vacuum extractor works best with this machine and it’s supplied with a 32 tooth Axcaliber TCT general purpose blade.

There’s a selection of optional extras: a leg stand, right hand extension table kit and also a comprehensive cast iron sliding table, complete with a large mitre fence and work clamp. On it’s own or with the accessories, the TS-200 is an accurate, smooth saw and is ideal for small furniture projects in the hobbyist's workshop.

There is also a complete kit version that includes all of the above at a moderate cost saving.

A good buy

I've had a terrible saw for two years and decided to buy a better one. I'm really pleased with the saw its got a superb build quality but there were a couple of little niggles that let it down for me, and that's why it didn't get 5 stars.

Firstly the fence design has obviously been changed in particular the way it mounts to the saw. The cut outs for the bolts are open topped, this is plain stupid, yes I imagine it makes the extrusion & machining process easier / cheaper but it makes the fence difficult to fit and even harder to align, a recessed tab would have had similar advantages without the disadvantages. None of the photos in the manual show this fixing method which is a bit annoying as you don't actually have to keep taking the bolts out. Also on the smaller model there's no microadjust mechanism I should have spotted this before ordering not to worry though.

I bought the extension table and sliding table add on and both are a bit fiddly to calibrate, not helped by the open topped bolts on the fence or the steel support beam for the sliding table that for some reason is made out of two bars overlapped and then welded, surely it would have been simpler to get a bar of the correct length and thickness than do this.

Took 3 hours to assemble and I think there's about an hour of fine tuning left, but now it's here I'm really looking forward to using it.

Great Little saw, helpful customer service

After struggling with a cheapo saw for two years, I purchased the complete kit on a Monday and selected for delivery on the Friday. It came before midday and the driver was very helpful with getting the parts into the garage. It came in separate boxes for all the separate parts making it much easier to move, however the main saw weighs around 55kg so help was required whenever this had to be moved.
Assembly took around 4 hours to get the saw completely set up on a homemade stand. This stand is mainly to improve the dust extraction as a big mouth dust hood is placed under the body and feeds directly into a dust box to catch any falling dust. This helps dust management massively and i would strongly advise others to do the same.
The saw itself was not difficult to setup, however aligning the mitre slots to the blade was not the easiest process in the world due to the motor assembly being attached to the tale rather than the casing. However after around 30 minutes of fiddling I got it aligned. Once this was done the rest of the process went very smoothly with the only other fiddly task being to align the sliding table.
Once set-up, i turned the saw and was amazed by how quite it is. It is also extremely powerful for its size. I resawed 4" of walnut in 2" passes without any struggle with a freud general purpose blade. All the features such as the fence, mitre gauge and sliding table all work very well with very little play and plenty of adjustability in everything.
All in all this a great little saw well worth the price with the warranty and renowned customer service of aminster.
The only bad points i can think of are the issues with the mitre slots and the fact that the dust catcher around the saw blade under the tale cannot be removed, meaning this has to be used for extraction rather than extracted from under the table, which in my experience is much more efficient.
Another plus for axminster is that I accidentally made my order twice due to issues with my network, however a quick ring up to axminster and the problem was sorted quickly without trouble!

I have the TS 200/1 of which I bought about 16 months ago. The spindle pulley failed on Monday 06/2016 so I phoned at approx 3.00pm spoke to Darren and he sourced the part from sock and I received on Tuesday 06/2016 at 9.30am. It is not always just the quality of the machine but the warranty and customer service. The saw is a nice size and reasonable quality for the hobbyist locked away in the sanctuary of the workshop (hut). The TS 200/2 has improved on the design and features, only for the better. Thank you again Darren.

Very Happy. Minor problems with saw but excellently resolved

The saw had a couple of faults when it arrived - a dented guide and a broken plastic cap. When I first phoned about these I was filled with dread as the person sounded officious and wanted me to email in photographs. However, after that everything was exemplary. I emailed in the photos and I was assigned someone from customer services who responded promptly, responded to every point, and resolved every issue. Simply the best customer service I have ever experienced from an online purchase. The saw is now installed, working and exceeding my expectations. It was aligned accurately out of the box and the manual was clear. It has done a good job of everything I have tried on it so far.

Initial impressions very positive

I opted for the basic saw only without extras and it arrived today - very promptly. I had to help the courier carry it in: it's a very heavy brute when packaged up. Luckily, once the components are unpacked and the boxes discarded it proved to be just about manageable on my own, but having a mate to hand for assembly would not be a bad idea.

I was a little underwhelmed on handling the component parts. Handles, knobs, etc. are very basic to the point of being crudely made. They will clearly do the job required of them, but they are far from polished or pretty. They look better in the photos than they do in the flesh.

Assembly went well. I took my time and relied heavily on the clear colour photos in the instruction manual. The textual instructions are brief and to the point. There is not really a lot to put together. The riving blade was already installed, despite the contrary impression given by the instructions. However, while it appeared to be well aligned with the blade at first, it quickly became slack with free movement from right to left when I tried to attach the guard. Removing the side panel revealed the problem and the solution in the form of a single nut on the slider that had worked lose. This was easily dealt with, but getting the side panel back on was a lot more of a hassle.

Blade and fence alignment seemed pretty good right out of the box. I am sure fine tuning will improve performance, but initial impressions were good. I was also pleased to see adjustment was possible on most if not all features and instructions were offered in the manual. As I got closer to competing assembly my confidence in the saw grew.

Switching it on produced a shock - I could not hear it running over the noise of my dust extractor. It's very pleasantly quiet in operation. A few trial cuts went very well: smooth, clean, accurate and quick. I want it for small project work and I think it will be well suited to this. I might look to some extras and extensions in the future, but for now I think it will meet my needs very well.
