Rated 5 out of 5Â by cjgadfly great workhorse
manual not the best but didn't take too long to put together.Great powerful saw ,has been used for ripping and crosscutting both with a good finish .Blades easily available and quick to change.Just spent last two days cutting scrap timber (about 12 hours saw time)and it didn't miss a beat,resulting in about 12 cubic metres of firewood .What more can you ask of a saw.

Not easy to follow the instruction manuals supplied. As previous reviewers have said "use the pictures on the box"! Blade guard a bit fiddly to use, not free moving or easy to lift. I have several (small) unidentified bits left over. The sliding table fixings have been modified, but this is not included in the manual, so following instructions, the fittings would foul the on/off switch. Not difficult to resolve using the leg bolts instead, but not mentioned in the manual and frustrating on building the kit!
But, works well, not too noisy, wheels and handles a nice touch. Easier to use separate "extension" tables for me, the fitted one makes the kit too wide or long for my workshop, but easy to remove, so no problems. I look forward to many years of use. Not used for long enough yet so only 3 stars for reliability.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by bigallymac Expensive repair if faulty
My saw only 2 years old, has only been used for light work and was last used about 6 months ago, it was put away in shed working, now won't go, contacted main suppliers who put me through to engineer, I informed him that there was power to the motor, nothing jamming it and blade turned freely, was told or rather guaranteed that the capacitor was faulty and would need replaced, bought new capacitor and saw still won't go, now been told I need new motor, cost is Â£167 +vat and delivery, when working it was a good running machine but not a good buy if not going to last

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Goatboy Money well spent
Instruction manual poor, but common sense prevails, I referred to the picture on the box which was a big help, 2hrs build time. Top quality table saw, cuts wood with ease with it's powerful and yet quiet induction motor. Quick release fence clamp means no time wasting setting up for a cut. Raising handle problems, are down to the user and could of been avoided. Could go on some more on how good it is, all I can say is there is no risk buying a Woodstar, its a good bit of kit, lets put it through its paces and see how reliable the motor is.
