Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cost me a fortune The saw seems adequate given the price but the track ,excessive rubber to cut off, the tra ks when together are not straight they move,flex you name it,I bought a door £500 and it needed 5mm off each side ,the difference from one end to the middle was10mm,so the £500 door has had to go in the bin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit Started using this straight out of the box cutting MDF & ply sheets, saves a lot of time not clamping down a straight edge. Gives a nice clean cut

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheaper, but not a cheap feel. First plunge saw I have owned and I love the ease of use as well as a lovely clean cut to timber and plywood. Will probably purchase a fine tooth blade for an even cleaner cut where required. Got this on a deal with 25% off so was attractively priced compared to a Festool (which would be nice if I could justify the outlay). My connector bar for the 2 guide plates was missing but Sceppach customer service despatched one quickly. The cutting depth guide physically notches in 1mm sizes, so you know you are getting the cutting depth you set and not an approximation. It made my cuts for Cross Lap joints very precise before chiseling out. Nice. Does not come with the guide clamp which is shown in one of the images of the saw. A little misleading, as product specs and details on the Screwfix website don't always tell the whole story. A minor point perhaps..... All in all, very happy with this saw which is a replacement for my ancient circular saw that had eventual gone to power tool heaven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plunge saw pl55 It came to day by DPD . Soon as it was out of the box it was hard st work cutting large sheets of Mdf down to size . I was going to change my table saw but this caught my eye and I am glad it did. Amazing saw might not be a big brand name but I think you can't pass this up... It does the job really nice. It's a shame the don't supply the side Gide rail just to use the as a circular saw.

Scheppach quote the power output of the PL55 to be 1200w, whereas you are quoting 1010w. Is this a typo?

Few Questions

Will a 165mm blade fit in the housing? Only 2.5mm change on radius (from 160mm) .. appreciate that the depth gauge becomes inaccurate but not fussed about this. Also what tracks are compatible with the saw? Makita, Festool, Erbuaur? etc
Asked by: rstaaar
Hello We have checked this and there is enough clearance between the riving knife and saw tooth , there is some adjustment for the riving knife . Please check very carefully before starting your blade . The track is only suited to the Schepppach pl55 .
