I got one a week or so ago, it's going back.

It doesn't cut straight, the mitre gauge has loads of wobble, so you can't use it to even try 90 degree cuts. It's a smaller benchtop saw so your not going to be cutting decent sized boards without putting the thing inside your own custom made extended worktop (which in itself isn't a fault, it's just how it is). The table saw surface 'metal paint' is coming off after a few uses.

I think I'm going to spend some more on a table saw, does anyone have any recomendations?

Yeah I had one of these too - not a Ferrex but it was essentially the same saw with a different brand - and it was terrible.

I upgraded to the Titan TTB763TAS from Screwfix, which is a huge upgrade over this one. It's not brilliant by any stretch, but it's definitely worth the £99.99 more than this one is worth £69.99.

If you have a higher budget I'd be looking at the Evolution Rage 5-S or something similar.

It's always worth spending more than you think you need or want to on tools like this. A £70 table saw sounds like a bargain but the saving isn't worth the hassle and frustration you're going to go through, only to buy a more expensive one at the end anyway. If you really need a table saw, you need a good one.
It'll be ok for general DIY stuff, ripping and rough cuts but not accurate cutting or anything more! As always be very careful and always wear eye protection as if you have a mishap A&E will be a long wait I'm afraid.

Depending on what you're doing on a regular basis but a track saw might prove more accurate & versatile than this.
Not really the time to be risking doing jobs with a crazy table saw!

I feel your pain!

I had a "Titan" from Screwfix and that was the same. Could have cut straighter with a bread knife, so that went back.

I then got a "Draper BTS256 1800w 250mm Sliding Table Saw" from FFX for £139 (seems to be £180 elsewhere) and although it will never be a DeWalt, Makita or Milwaukee, it seems pretty accurate and come with useful sliding top.

Only used it recently for the first time and it managed to cut a few 2.4m lengths of 44x44 in half (along the entire length) and as straight as a die a few days ago.

Have a look at Scheppack - this is a good reasonably accurate saw. Its not a job site saw.

Would that not be better for sheet materials though? If you are wanting to split regular timber along it's length, a track saw might not cut it (quite literally).

I have a Bosch Professional circular saw and associated tracks and they are great as you say for MDF or Plywood sheets, but like you also say, it depends what it will be used for.

Sorry but this logic is like saying don’t get out of bed or you may hurt your back. Oh be careful of the staircase too.
Remember thousands of accidents are still happening each day and are still being treated fine. Yes nobody wants to put added strain on the nhs but nobody has said don’t do risky jobs most of us wouldn’t still be working keeping this country going if that was the case.

No worries, you’re entitled to your own opinion. But I’m Not sure how you take a comment on not taking unnecessary risks at this time to suggest not getting out of bed or walking down the stairs or doing your job.
Personally I won’t be doing anything risky that i wouldn’t normally do as don’t want to be putting myself at any risk of hospitalisation in the current situation - based on comments about this product it sounds quite a risky piece of equipment to be using but at the price are we surprised

Most cheap table saws, certainly less than £150 will have a poor guide system due to the materials it's made out off. I have the Scheppach HS100S and when I first got it was pretty disappointed by the guide and the sliding rail inaccuracies. I have subsequently made my own guide out of think metal "U" bar which is then clamped to the top, not idea but it is night and day over the one that came with it and I use it more now that I did before. The rest of the machine I find good enough quality for what I use it for. Unfortunately I think you need to be upward of £300 to get a good quality accurate machine. Also seeing it all in person helps too, but haven't got you luxury at the moment..... To back up what someone else said, probably not the best time to be visiting A+E so for anyone not having used one before be extra careful. So tempting not to use the push rod to feed the material, or getting a cuff caught if your sliding by the blade etc. I also find the blade cover very awkward but best not to remove it unless you have too!

That's interesting to hear on the HS100. The HS120 fence and mitre rail are really good, although admittedly the mitre rail takes a lot of setting up to slide parallel on the surface. I built a side table support with using ply and my B&D work mate and some PTFE gliding tape and the rail was good enough to accurately cut 2 meter length hardwood sills. I also built a sled which fits onto the ripping fence for cutting mortices vertically - the ripping fence is rock solid. Blade cover/dust extractor on mine is nearly useless unless working with ply. I never operate without the riving knife.

The A+E comment is a good one but imho the point really is table saws are not for DIYers - don't think you can buy one because it will look good in your workshop and you can just use it without any risk. Get some lessons before using these things - its not just losing hands and fingers - energetic kick backs are easy even with a riving knife installed.
Buy a track saw. Table saws are not much good for most jobs unless you need it for a specific task. Also you need more space than most have to feed through wood. Track saw and foam insulation on floor to cut on. Sorted...

I have the full size version from Yr ago, it is actually 2000w comes with 2 blades.

I think you need to understand how much these normally go for and what you're paying for;

With mine, I had to redial the 90 as the angle indicator sticker was way off 90. It's as simple as getting your square rule and setting it yourself. I tried a 45 once and that wasn't ideal to find 45 as the adjustment is quite insecure. Probably want to get those floating angle levels if I need more angles.

The blade was 'ok' for my needs +-0.5mm flex?, there's a bit of wobble on the 18 tooth but I swapped it out for the 40 tooth and blade was straight on that one.

Lastly the guide only clamps down on one end so you may not always get the straight cut, I scribbed a line where the zero is on the table and always double checked with a tape measure. I may make a sled for it. Dialing the sled in would be comical...

These only amply if you set up large pieces, with 20inch or less it doesn't stress the tolerance as much so Accuracy is greater. Then again, why would you need 2kw for smaller than 20inches of ply?

It's a bit of a faff but it's my first table saw and understanding limitations are nice before getting a proper one, if I need a proper one. I sometimes feel more comfortable with a circular saw than a table saw. Less variables to go ary to be fair. Straight plank, clamp clamp, cut.
Edited by: "Inquisitor" 11th Apr
Real question is, what do you need it for and do you know what the advantages are on it?

Table saw in its simplist form (because mine is pretty basic!) is to make repeating cuts of same length along the board, similar function to a mitre saw on planks of wood, but cutting the other way.

Mine does this well, once set up (which takes an age), ha!

I looked at loads, but went for DeWALT DW745. It came set up straight out of the box. It's got a rack and pinion system to adjust to fence, so one knob moves the fence perfectly parallel. Will cut 8x4 boards no problem. Really quick to set up and accurate. Plenty of power. Build a sled if you need to cross cut though for safety reasons. Loads of reviews on YouTube.

My mate ended up in a and e when he worked in a joiners shop. The cross cut was being used, so he cut a peice of timber longer that its width on the table saw. It kicked back and hit him in the groin.

Total garbage saw. I bought and returned one last year. Everything about it is cheap and flappy, no good for making straight cuts. The motor whines as it struggles to cut wood far thinner than the rated capacity. Absolutely avoid.

I'm not sure about the 120 but the 100 only has the guide fixed at one end. Where it fixes to the table is also plastic so as you feed the wood through, the closer you get to the far end of the guide the less pressure you can put up against it to stop it bending! The 120 certainly looks a bit better, I am a huge dewalt fan, but I only use the table saw maybe 8 times a year for some maintenance and couldn't justify a more expensive machine, I'm certainly happy with the rest of the saw now that I have a better guide set up.
Does any one know blade can be replaced on these?

Where it fixes to the table is also plastic so as you feed the wood through, the closer you get to the far end of the guide the less pressure you can put up against it to stop it bending! The 120 certainly looks a bit better, I am a huge dewalt fan, but I only use the table saw maybe 8 times a year for some maintenance and couldn't justify a more expensive machine, I'm certainly happy with the rest of the saw now that I have a better guide set up.


Aha, yes the only plastic on the 120 is the saw plate and the dust extractor - the saw plate is a weak spot imho because its slightly below the surface of the table and the exiting timber can get caught on the lip - I had to modify it with some alu tape to stop this.
