I have both expense premium stuff & budget tools, but if there is one tool I wouldn't buy cheap it's a table saw.
If this serves your purpose, great but I've learnt the hard way it's not for me.
EDIT: if asked I'd said buy a track saw & a sheet of insulation foam and use that to cut full size sheets on the floor.
Voted hot anyway for the deal.

These are too flimsy for any kind of accurate work. The fence has too much flex in it to provide that stability which is required. It's probably ok for very occasional use for rough cutting things to size quickly, but I can't think how it would be suitable for the type of projects that really lend themselves to this type of saw

It's good, but also consider the Titan tablesaws at Screwfix which are approx £85 / £100 right now. 3 year warranty is a big plus though

If this is the same as last rounds the see through guard is nice improvement.

I have the aldi one last time. At 2kw it's pretty beefy and powerful. You will need to YouTube how to set it up properly when installing so it cuts straight etc. It's not as easy as plug and play.

The laser is poo, no point of it, I marked a line on the table saw for referencing where the cut goes.

My only 2 gripes are:
1) I need a longer table both width and depth for proper cuts, I think max is only 57cm each side.
2) I'm sure with little more effort put in you can make it foldable or something. The unit itself is quite bulky and weighty so hard to move it around/get it out to use (suggestions welcomed!)

As for the deal, I bought mine on sale back then for £70, so.. If you need it now, fine, if not then I'd wait.

I purchaed this from Aldi under the "workzone" brand. It was great for 3 weeks then the motor went pop and smoke! Also tood it back and gave a full refund. I now have a different premuim brand which works better. I think you'll find that this type of saw is just rebadged under many different brands.
Good price

Hot from me OP 😬

The previous dark blue Aldi Power Tools under the Workzone Brand (previous itteration) were Scheppach rebrands, but these new Bright Blue Ferrex Tools are Positec group (owner of worx tools as well amoungst others) The older Scheppach branded tools, the bigger stuff at least were fantastic value for money (particularly when they often get discounted as they change the rotation) I haven't invested in the Ferrex as 1. the ferrex seems/looks/feels much more like a toytown brand and colour to me 2. I liked the Scheppach Link as they were a decent bottom of the range value product range untill the Aldi stuff made them seem expensive.but more importantly, I havent seen the Ferrex stuff at the same discounted prices yet
Its really annoying that theyve changed their entire range for anyone who has already invested oin workzone tools, but Positec having the 20 and 40v battery systems already means they will have access to some potentially heavier duty battery products in the future, I just cant bring myself to invest though..

Would you say a budget plunge / track saw is worth it for DIY or is that another tool where buying something less than premium is a waste of time?

I have this one
Evolution Power Tools Rage 5-S Multi-Purpose Table Saw, 255 mm (230 V) smile.amazon.com/dp/…XZ2

It's by no means a premium brand but a step up from budget models.
Evolution make a big deal about their blades being capable of cutting multiple materials including metal but that was never a selling point for me as I only wanted it for wood.
As for Screwfix Titan tools, I've had a few but not the table saw. My experience of the brand is positive & the warranty is very good.
Cheers for your advice Pat it's greatly appreciated 🏾🤜🏾

I have an Evolution tracksaw.
This one.
I deliberately went for the model that came with the short tracks and also ordered the very long tracks.
All in I think it was around £200. At the time it was a new model so I couldn't get them both from Screwfix, the long tracks were from FFX.
The price has come down quite a bit & screwfix now sell the long tracks as well. Link.
I've had excellent results using a track saw, I sometimes use it instead of a table saw. If you make a very shallow scribe cut first the cut quality is very clean.

I think this is the one I got when it was reduced to £199 on amazon. Much more sturdy and accurate than the wokzone one I had with the advantage of being able to wheel it about and store in a smaller space..

Cheers - that looks like a lot for the money. It'll be either a track saw or a table saw for me - can't justify spending on both when it's just for DIY so I may well go with the one you linked to.

I endorse what greendayadam, inquisitor and others have said here. I bought this one as a local offer when my nearest Aldi opened. I quickly relegated it to the wood shed for cutting firewood and would have been rather disappointed if I had paid full price or planned on some proper DIY with it...
At this price I think I'd put the money towards something better myself.
as an asside to mey earlier post stateing the change from Scheppach based workzone mmodels previously available from Aldi, this Positec group ferrex brand is based on the Einhell TC-TS 2025/1 U 250mm Table Saw With Side Extentions & Stand - 2000W which retails for about £106-7 or so... possibly has some other differences, but the warranty /sservice of the Ferrex ids through Einhell anyway...
