In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The Axminster Trade PS315 Panel Saw has been designed for the small trade joinery workshop or keen home furniture maker. The saw features a high torque 2.8kW input 1ph induction motor, retractable scoring blade, a deep section cast iron table, fully welded heavy gauge steel chassis and a cast iron rip fence holder. The good sized cast iron main table is fitted with a cast iron extension table making a combined surface of 820 x 800mm, plus a further steel plate extension to give a total working surface of 1,260 x 800mm. The 1,600mm sliding table is smooth running, fully adjustable to be true to the table and blade, and gives a travel of 1,300mm through the blade. A crosscut support table, with a telescopic support arm, can be positioned anywhere along the side of the sliding table and has a telescopic fence 1,200-2,200mm long, enough for full size boards. This can easily be removed without tools for storage if required. A heavy gauge cast iron rip fence holder and deep section alloy fence rail is included. The fence rail can be easily adjusted for both rip or crosscut work, and is rigidly locked with a cam clamp. The fence rail can also be re-positioned for thin work pieces. A powerful 2.8kW input 230V, 1ph high torque motor drives both the cutting blade and a scoring blade. The size of the cutting blade can be a choice of 254 or 315mm, without removing the scoring blade. The split scoring blade is easy to adjust through the table top and can be retracted below the surface when not required. Smooth acting blade controls with position locks, efficient dust extraction and an easily adjustable rip fence contribute to ease of use. Included as standard are a 315mm Axcaliber TCT fine cut main blade, split scoring blade, a rear feed-off table, small mitre fence (of a clever design for use on the sliding table with a work clamp), an edge shoe and table support legs. N.B. 16A supply required, plug fitted.

Could have been great

I purchased this saw a year ago for my small one man shop. It seemed the perfect machine with its sliding table, rigid fence and good range of accessories.
The problems started straight out of the crate. The sliding table would not align with the cast iron top, no matter what I did it wouldn’t run true. I contacted Axminster tools and they were great, sending out an engineer in a matter of days. It turned out that the cast top was warped along with the saw mechanism being out of true. After five long hours and a very good engineer it looked like everything was sorted. How wrong I was. After a short time the sliding table had shifted out of square again the extension table fixings had sheared off and the bolts holding the adjustable fence had disintegrated.
The engineer was called out again and fixed the problems and for a short while everything was good until low and behold the sliding table shifted out of square again. The frustration this causes is immense and I have almost given up with this machine. I only wish I’d spent the extra money and purchased the industrial TSCE-12R.

Could be better axminster

So got the unit today.
looked like it had already been installed somewhere. Covered in finger marks and some components already installed. The inside of the cabinet was covered in grease and splash marks.
The blade inner cover guard was bent and poorly installed so had to adjust and refit.
The side door on the cabinet has paint cracked / flaked off it.
Instructions did not correlate to the product.
All saftey micro switches are loose and need refitting, dissapointing!!
Carriage lock hole looked like somone has attacked it with a file.
fiitting the dust extraction pipe was a nightmare, really poor design.
The lock for the tilt and raise really needs screwing down hard to lock in position, not convinced they will work so well. in fact the lock for the tilt is in an awkward position to use.
sliding table had some damage on the bed.
Aluminium swarf over many of the components.
Overall i would so more hobby than trade standard !!
lets hope it works better than the isntallation process !!

Great Saw - Let down by accessories

The saw is great everything you could want from this kind of machine, excellent power, great sliding table, scoring blade, and easy to align blades etc. the reason i haven't given 5/5 is possibly the most important part of the unit is very poor - the guide rail. its such a pain to have to undo IN ITS ENTIRETY and remove just to move back along the support table attached to the slider to allow a wider piece to be cut, it should have a quick release for something like that and if the sliding table could only slide literally 1 1/2" more, if you try to cut a full size ply panel across the last inch isn't reached by the blade unless you crank the blade up to its max height. that stop for a brief moment to crank the blade up means the cut line isn't sharp and the end of the cut. small details which don't do the rest of the machine any favours because the machine is excellent and would be perfect if not for those details.

Good saw let down by poor dust extraction around the saw blade guard.

Recently took ownership of this saw which was delivered on time. It was well packed and in good condition. I was glad I ordered the mobile base as it makes moving it around a doddle. Basically it is a very good saw, my only complaint is with the dust extraction which is nowhere as good as on my previous saw, a Kity 619. I have a heavy duty wall mounted system which I purchased from Axminster several years ago which has plenty of suction but unfortunately my workshop gets covered in a lot of dust. I have had a good look at the blade guard and think the problem lies with the position and size of the extraction hole, also there seems to be a lot of open spaces around the blade and guard which allows the suction to escape. The hose to the crown guard has very little suction above the blade. I think that Someone from Axminster should have a good look at this with a view to improving this, otherwise a good saw.

great value for money

Received my ps315 panel saw a couple of weeks ago and I, ve been putting it through its passes.
First of all axminster warrington where I purchased the machine from were great to deal with.
The saw arrived on time and on the day they said, coming in its packing cases.
Setting up was very easy to do if you follow the booklet and take your time.
You can set it up on your own as I did but a lift would have made it easier as the main saw is very heavy and the sliding table, cast table are heavy to assemble on your own.
Make sure it's set up correctly and nice a flat to gain the full potential of the saw.
Powerful saw so I need a 16amp c supply installing even though it's 240 v.
Minimum adjustment was need to set up the fences to make the square.
The saw performs really well and is nice and smooth to operate.
Take your time in setting up the scribe blade to get the best results.
One of the main reasons I picked the ps315 was the foot print of the saw and the amount room it would take up over a larger trade saw.
One thing I would advise you to get as an extra is a mobile base unit (unless you never want to move the saw).
Talk to the sales man nicely and see what he could do for you to get one cheaper.
I would highly recommend this machine as it's great value for money at under £1700.00 plus the 3 year parts and labour warranty, can't go wrong.
