Expert Review

Okay, maybe calling this an industrial table saw is a bit of poetic license on the part of some copywriter but it's pretty decent for a compact table saw. I used to have one very similar to this and while not the most accurate saw in the world, it served me well. It's nice to see that it's still possible to buy a table saw this cheap.

The biggest problem with a saw like this is the small table size. At 26 by 19 inches, it's hard to cut anything large on it, even if you are using two people to hold the workpiece. You're limited to a rather small rip capacity, so you're really not going to be able to do any fancy cabinet making with it. On the other hand, it's small, compact and rather inexpensive; while maintaining enough power to get through standard sized materials, even dimensional lumber, without a problem. If you need a table saw for small projects, this one will do what you need.Rating: 4/5
