The AT254PS13 Panel Saw is a compact saw fitted with a 1,300mm sliding table. It is constructed largely from cast iron and heavy gauge steel, which gives strength and smooth running. The 254mm blade gives a cutting depth of up to 80mm and is amply powered by a high torque 2.2kW input 1ph induction motor. The cast iron table gives great strength and rigidity as well as providing a smooth working surface. A long rip fence, with a micro-positioning adjustment ensures straight rip cuts. There is a standard 19 x 10mm mitre fence slot in the main table. Both the blade height and tilt controls are conveniently located and lock in position. Supplied with a 1,300mm sliding table with a pivoting support leg and a crosscut table, this sliding table gives 1,250mm travel past the blade. The support table can be positioned anywhere along the side of the sliding table, also has a telescopic work support fence, a maximum of 1,850mm long, which can be fitted at either the front or rear of the crosscut table. This can easily be removed without tools for storage if required. An accurate, small workpiece mitre fence with angle scale, work clamp and edge shoe is also provided for the sliding table. Efficient dust extraction, smooth acting blade controls with position locks and an easily adjustable rip fence contribute to ease of use. Included as standard are a 254mm Axcaliber TCT fine cut main blade, a rear feed-off table and table support legs. This saw is a great all rounder for a small trade workshop and would equally suit a home based woodworker looking for a saw for bigger projects. N.B. 16A 230V Supply Required, plug fitted.

Very good sawSpent the whole day putting together, which was relatively straight forward and then setting up which takes a whole lot of time, effort and expletives. I'll start with the niggles; the side extension table is quite flexible and will flex downwards, even with a straight edge there doesn't appear to be enough rigidity to keep it level at its extremity, unfortunately I can't add a photo to show what I mean. The guard under the slider doesn't have screws they're 7mm bolts making blade changes a little more of a faff and finally getting the slider square and level to the table is excruciatingly painstaking, it's easier to remove the slider, back off the squaring bolts (10mm), loosen the retaining bolts (13mm), replace the slider then clamp square to the cast iron table, tighten the retaining bolts and nip the squaring bolts to snug up to the underside of the slider. Again it would have been easier to show in a series of photographs. Finally the cable is short, would have been useful to have half a metre more as suggested in another review.

Excellent valueI bought this panel saw because it looked like you got a lot of saw for your money, and yes i did :) Have had Axminster's saw before, knowing that they make good products, but this one surprised me big time.

Unfortunately disappointingThis saw on paper is great value, but unfortunately it is a let down. Set up is fiddly and nigh on possible to get set square and accurate. Allow at least a day to get it set. The dust extraction is also poor and the saw guard extraction is a complete waste of time. After days of trying to get the sliding table aligned with the cast table it was found that the casting was not flat / true and because of this the sliding table was impossible to get level. It also means that crosscutting causes the timber to rock between the two tables, causing cuts that are out of square. It also means that when ripping, the offcut side of the blade bonds against the sliding table. Axminster swapped the saw straight away for us when the issue was raised, which we were very pleased about. But the new saw that was delivered had exactly the same issue with the casting of the table. We were now told that there are no more machines in stock, and we are half way through a job. Very unhappy and a shame that whoever manufactures this saw can’t produce a casting that is dead square. Arguably the most important part of the saw

5 StarsI've given this saw a 5 star rating across the board, the only thing that could improve imo is the length of the power cable by about 500mm. Other than that, I love it!
