A saw designed for precise, straight cuts, with a height adjustable and tilting saw blade, up to 45°. It is made for the fine mechanic, model builder, mould making, toy manufacture, architect, model carpenter and fitter. A variety of optional blades allow it to cut a wide range of materials, such as wood, non-ferrous metals, plastics, Plexiglas, PC cards, foam and many others. All load bearing parts and plane-milled table are made of die-cast aluminium making the FET saw very stable.
The table and drive lift for easy access for cleaning or changing the saw blade. The micro-adjustable, precise cut length stop allows cuts as small as 0.1mm to be made and as deep as 22mm. The saw blade, which can be pivoted by 45°, makes the cutting of double mitres possible when used with the angle stop. The FET is driven by a special DC motor with Optibelt toothed belts connecting it to the main ball bearing supported shaft. Standard equipment supplied with the saw includes a 24 tooth hard metal-equipped saw blade 80 x 1.5 x 10mm. A push stick and a non-slotted polycarbonate sawing table inset for tight tolerances between saw blade and table when cutting small parts. The FET has a dust adaptor suitable for connection to a vacuum for dust free working.

Pretty good-bit flimsyI bought this saw to do one job only and it didnt take me long to get it to do this one job. I took out the plastic support around the saw blade and fitted a hard one made of holly wood The safety guide is very irritating on such a small machine - so that’s in the bin. Getting this machine saves me a time consuming set up on a lathe. So I am happy .

chop sawI have this saw for a few years now with no problems , I have modified saw to operate as a normal mitresaw & removed the vice , also has its own stop fence & fine angle adjuster, I do a lot of segmented work & this saw has changed my world of segmented small work . If Proxxon converted saw they would sell one to every segmented woodturner , it is a dream to work with & has never given me any problems in about 6 years & it is used very often with a 36 tooth tungsten blade & no sanding of segments the cut is so fine , so well done to Proxxon

Disappointing, but adequate.Good specs but screams "Made in Taiwan". Poor QC in manufacture. Different faults in different machines.
