Ryobi ETS-1526AL 240V 254mm Table Saw
bought this about 1 yr ago as I do a lot of segmented woodturning and it would be ideal to cut segments or at least that's what I thought the mitre gauge that comes with it is rubbish it has a fair bit of free sideways movement in the track on the table top so you don't get accurate cuts and I also found out the table top was bowed a bad casting I guess their quality control must be bad when they let this pass I have since got rid of it and bought elsewhere

Its a decent saw, although it's a bit of a ball ache putting it together. The stand is a bit flimsy and can tip when ripping heavy timber or long lengths if additional support isn't used. The saw is also quite aggressive and loud on start up. Otherwise its a good value for money tool and a great assett to any workshop. I've had mine for a while now, i've hammered it at times and it's still going strong.

generally very good but the internal screw thread on one of the locking knobs was faulty and stripped very quickly which was disappointing. Otherwise the saw worked very well the table and base feeling substantial. The ability to mount a jigsaw and router to the table was a good feature, but sadly it would appear that it would only accommodate Ryobi products only to be expected though.

In all this is a good product, if you are planning to use this for accurate depth cutting, consider other options. The fence is much better than most of this price range, though a little fiddly to get very accurate. The mitre guide is a standard 'in slot' type, again good value for the price but not a 'very' accurate tool. If you are looking for a general use saw, I would recomend this product.
