In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This table saw is a larger version of the TS-200-2 and shares the same attributes as its smaller cousin of quiet running, powerful performance and compact dimensions. Fitted with a 250mm 40T TCT Axcaliber blade, the TS-250M-2 has a maximum depth of cut of 76mm, making it a great option for larger home projects. Adequate power is supplied by a 1.5kW, 230V induction motor fitted with a brake. Both blade height and tilt controls operate smoothly and are conveniently placed with a simple lock to set the blade tilt. The heavy, cast iron table is ground flat to create a smooth top surface and the full length fence features a sub-fence which can be positioned for rip or crosscut work, or re-set for smaller cutting tasks. The fence can also be set more accurately using a fine width control.

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. The mitre fence can also be used either side of the blade which is very useful when making 45° left or right hand mitre cuts.

There’s a selection of optional extras; a leg stand which gives a table height of 880mm, a right hand extension table kit allowing an extra 600mm of width, as well as a sliding table kit with a cast iron carriage, complete with mitre fence, work clamp and a very useful 915mm of travel.

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

With the ability to add a range of accessories to the TS-250M-2, this may be the only table saw a Hobby user requires.

A basically good tool with some severe letdowns

I got this saw for light use to replace an older Axminster saw, very noisy and of dubious accuracy, but good power, this seemed to overcome these problems. I like the cast iron top, the T-slot and the fairly solid fence. Dust extraction is a problem and needs modification to work effectively. After 2 years light use with softwood I had some 60mm beech to rip and it killed it, the blade spun but stopped under very light load. I dismantled it and found the drive belt has stretched. This is a very poor quality, and though Axminster are replacing it I would have little confidence in it and will seek out an alternative.
Trying to save a paltry few quid on this part seems very short sighted given the damage in reputation things like this cause.

Cracking bit of kit

Having had the saw for just on a year now and used it extensively, not just a couple of times, to make wardrobes, window frames and replace a barn floor and roof, I am very pleased with the way it has handled all I have thrown at it.

Please be aware that if you remove the internal extraction assembly as the last reviewer this will also take away the motor/belt guard you have then exposed the belt to all the debris taken below the table by the blade, this will cause premature failure of the belt.

Why oh why did I waste my money

Please bare in mind most of the positive review are just after the saw has been bought. I have had this saw for a couple of years now (the previous version of this, same body different fence) I use it extremely occasionally, I am a site joiner and only work in the garage a hand full of time a year.

Firstly the internal extraction fowls when trying to tilt the blade over, so straight away that had to be pulled out. Then the first belt went (apparently a known problem) after a good few months one finally came through in the post. I fitted it (again a nightmare to do) and just yesterday that too has perished. I was ripping down some 4x2 softwood and the belt went after 2 lengths, with a slow feed rate and a thin kerf blade fitted.

You get what you pay for

I went for this as i had limited space and wanted something that would do the job. honestly if you are thinking about panel work eg fitted cupboards/wardrobes its gonna a bit tricky even with the full kit (sliding table and extension). I make furniture of solid timber so it turned out ok with a finer blade (80t). The setup is a real pain as many posts have said, and my only gripe is the blade alignment.. its very tricky to set, and tends to move on the rear if you put allot of thick material through it. Dust extraction is crap out of the
box but not rocket science to fix. Would i buy it again.. for something that can be moved around and the fact that everything in the price bracket is basically the same thing from china etc then yes.. works for me but if you are looking for accuracy to the .5mm you will spend allot of time setting it up.. and probably never quite get there.
As i work with solid timber i generally use it for rough dimensions and then shooting board to refine where needed.
Hope that helps.
oh ye ps 0 clearance inserts are a pain as well.. you can make one for 90 and another for 45 with the blade raised to max.. again not rocket science its just a pain
