A lot of saw for the money
Took a while to assemble but with a bit of patience to set everything up properly makes a very accurate saw. The blade was out of parallel by about 1/2 mm but IS adjustable by loosening the 6 bolts that are countersunk into the table and gently tapping the angle mountings under the table with a rubber mallet to bring everything into line. Setting up the sliding carriage runner is a pain without an assistant but do-able, and again runs perfectly true once you've tinkered with it.
Bevel adjustment is a bit tricky to get accurate with not having the screw adjuster that the more expensive models have but if you have a decent angle gauge then not too bad.
The only issue I've found on mine is that the riving knife is very slightly out of line with the blade, luckily it is out towards the fence so doesn't pull the work-piece away from the fence when ripping. All in all a decent piece of kit with the self assembly aspect keeping the price down.
The cross cut fence is bang on square and runs parallel but again adjustable should it not be.
The rip fence can sit out of true if you don't make sure it is tight down to the table when you lock it into place.
On a final note, the instructions are not brilliant unless you happen to understand German because the German instructions are a bit more in depth than the English which miss a few important bits out, if you understand how sawbenches work and can assemble flat packs with the aid of a pictorial instruction then it is fairly straightforward. As for reliability, only time will tell.

Fiddly but fine for purpose
Had saw for six months and built a be-decked shed out of it. Bit fiddly to assemble especially the sliding guide. Not too happy with the accuracy of the rip cutting fence as it has a tendency to burn the wood if it's long. Checked it today using guidance given on youTube and discovered it is tapering ever-so-slightly inwards, hence the burns, so I will be speaking to the supplier!
It's a pity there is no fine adjustment so as to correct small deviations, but otherwise a reliable tool even though blade-changing is awkward - and don't use the spanners provided.

Scheppach TS 30 315mm Table Sa
I puchased this saw, it is well made and good value.
However I would recomend having a set of spanners and allen keys to assemble it.
The sawblade was out of alignment, so the table top has to be lossened with allen key on the top screws and a spanner underneath as far as I can guess to get it aligned.
I have not done this yet., once I have done so I belive it will be great.
If you are using the sliding table a lot a modification may be required as the degree scale is proud of the table and could wear the numbers on the scale away.

Is it possible to do non-thru cut grooving with this machine?
Hello The riving knife on this model can be raised and lowered below the saw blade teeth for concealed cutting , the guard has to be removed to perform such cuts this is at the users own risk , utmost care and attention must be used at all times .

Can you fit a dado blade to this saw?
HI There. The use of Dado blades shouldn't be used on any table saw that has a braked type motor, and therefore is now an illegal practise to do so. As the Scheppach TS 30 is fitted with a braked motor and will therefor stop in approx 7 seconds, the manufacturers do not provide the ability to fit a Dado blade to this machine.
