Scheppach HS80 210mm Table Saw 240V
This table saw is a reasonable price. After using it for a few months I regret buying it. The blade is not parallel with the table top. The fence is incredibly annoying and almost impossible to get perfectly parallel to the blade. The extension feature is a complete waste of time. The most restricting factor is the miniscule cutting width its capable of. More often than not I have to use a circular saw instead. The scale is a plasticy tape, im sceptical as to how accurate it is. I changed the blade immediately as the stock one is shocking also the insert is plastic and lower than the table which makes cutting smaller pieces impossible. Anyone contemplating buying this product, even for rough work, I can only urge you in the strongest possible sense not to be tempted by the cheap price. Wait, save your money and buy something a few levels above it, the Makita looks like a proper job. Everything about this saw is cumbersome and you spend ages on simple tasks.

Value for money
I purchased this saw to give me portable ripping facilities, I found the product to be value for money, yes its basic, but does what its supposed to do, you get what you pay for, it didn't cost a fortune so you don't get top of the range. It has performed all that I wanted from it and more.
Recommended for light use, DIY work, certainly not site work or industrial use.

Cheap and cheerful
I purchased this machine as I wanted a small bench saw and the price seemed reasonable however as soon as I unpacked it I wished I had waited and bought a more upmarket sec this is very basic and the really disappointing feature is the measuring guide across both top and bottom these are only stickers and to make matters worse they were not even affixed in line which obviously makes it difficult to get the right measurements.
I knew it was a cheap saw but would have expected better.
My advice...save your money and when you have enough go for a more upmarket specification.
I would NOT buy this saw after seeing it.
