Erbauer EBS2504SE Table Saw 250mm 230V
DIY Dream Tool
After a year of debating about buying a table saw i.e which one would suit my pocket, function and available space, this model just kept croping up and hitting the mark. I finally dug deep into that pocket and spoilt myself and do not regret is as I know I have bought a real gem. Firstly You get a lot of table space, 440 each end which therefore makes it ideal for ripping sheet material. The blade is great and gives a smooth cut, depending on the speed you pass through of course. I was worried from other reviews that the instructions would be a challenge. They were pretty straight forward if you actually sit and read it for 10 minutes! Took about an hour to set up without rushing. The fence is good and stable and dust extraction was very effective. All in all a perfect tool for the average diyer and I feel I've got a lot for my money becuase it cuts well above its weight compared to over priced named brands.

Fine for general work
This is fine if you are looking for accuracy of about 1mm either way. I've been rebuilding a utility room with mine and I've used it a lot for cutting up wood, upvc, and insulation boards.
If you've never had a table saw before and you need to resize wood etc and have been making do with a jigsaw or circular saw, this will be an absolute godsend as long as you are prepared to spend a bit of time finding its limitations eg. don't rely on the measurement stated by the slider and don't assume the fence is always exactly square but nothing a quick check with a metal rule can't sort out. As previous reviews have indicated, it is a workhorse not a precision instrument but I wouldn't be without it now though dust extraction quite poor so not for living room use.
If looking to build a quality long term home workshop then seriously think about spending a bit more at a specialist like axminster with long term spares support.

I bought this saw once reading the reviews.
tell me I am stupid but took a while to understand which nut/bolt went where as no clear instructions in manual, took quite a while to put together.
once I got the saw working, wow what a saw!
