Not goodFlimsy, certainly doesn't like 6mm ply which I was using on a modelling project. Consistently overheated blowing the attenuater in the motor. I have replaced it three times now, and now it looks like the cheap Chinese motor has given up the ghost as well. Replacing either requires a stripdown, which handily they give a 'how to' in the booklet which comes with it. A new bit costs 13p and a bit of soldering, a new motor is £60 - £70 for a machine which cost me £90 a couple of years ago. It has hardly been used and certainly not pushed in any way. Poor value for money. For another £20 I could have got a band saw which I wish I had now but the Proxxon looked like it would do the jobs I wanted, which it can do when it isn't breaking down. Too much down time to be useful.

excellent little machineI love this machine, so does my wife... so we bought two. I use mine for detailed wood cutting, floor boards for model boats, etc.. and my wife uses hers for cutting precise dowels for her cake business. I know I could use it for more DIY projects if it was bigger and had a more powerful motor, but that's why Proxxon have a larger FET saw in their range. This baby table saw is perfect for baby projects...

Small, good for fine work and reasonable quality.I bought this saw essentially to cut 3mm birch ply sheets for art and craft projects. It manages this quite well although it is underpowered and reluctant to handle anything much thicker or harder, even so it has to be fed very slowly and carefully. It is small and quiet in operation and it's parallel guide is accurate enough allowing for a maximum guided width of around two and a half inches. I returned my first one after a month as it made strange knocking sounds when the motor started - Axminster repaired it but it still sounds the same so I guess it's normal for this model! Overall it benefits from being small, light and portable and is good for fine work and there is nothing similar available in the UK in the price range as far as I can tell.
