      @Rhodry maelwaedd the fence is great, true to the blade straight out of the box. Had to line up the measuring guide was out by 3mm but apart from that no problems at all. Had it 18 months now and I stick by what I said in my review of it ๐Ÿ‘

      Really like the look of the fence and extension table. Think I might go for this instead of shelling out 700 for a dewalt

    • James' Man Cave

      Certainly is, huge improvement over the fury table saw

      It's a powerful saw, that has the potential to be fantastic with a few tweeks. Thanks for the sub ๐Ÿ‘

  • Rhodry maelwaedd

    wish I'd seen this before I bought. I did exactly the same thing, bought a rage mitre saw (really love it) and the circular saw (one of the best I've owned) so thought the table saw would be good too. The fence is atrocious, so much so that I've removed it completely and use a price of box steel now. The extension wings keep moving no matter how many times I align and tighten. You are correct with it being the same carcass. I owned a scheppach (bought a few years ago as my first table saw for ยฃ125.00 off amazon) and thought I'd upgrade a little to the rage. The outer carcass and frame are exactly the same! In retrospect I wouldn't buy this and would use my circular saw while I saved up for a dewalt (which is what I'm currently doing). Great vid by the way ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

      It's unfortunate that the saw has all these issues, but because the motor I found to have good power. I did think of buying better upgrades for it before selling it. I do have the evolution rage 5s table saw, which is a fsr superior saw then this one.

    I have one it sounds rough as it spins, the laser is useless. Cut ok fairly accurate out the box back fence on mine isnโ€™t straight.

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave Day ago

      Hmmm thats odd, shouldn't sound like that. Back fence wasn't perfect on mine, but now it is and for stright cuts it perfect

  • Lee Midgley

    Great review totally unbiased. I have a titan saw so quite cheap, the dust extraction is shockingly bad. So I diverted the flow of air from the two motor air vents, the one facing the saw bed and the one around the inside of the blade. and made a plastic cone to make more of an opening for the dust to flow into. This worked really well, obviously if the saw was been used a great deal over a period of time it could over heat, but mine isn't. Thanks for the video and keep it up.

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave 2 days ago

      That's a great idea Lee, I like little hacks like that. I've seen a few cheap fixes that may be able to improve the dust extraction on this, but didn't want to do any till I got the review done. Thanks for commenting.

    Hi James. I've had mine a similar amount of time and you are bang on with you review. For ยฃ150 ISH you can't go wrong for the DIYER. And the dust extraction is so bad I don't even bother connecting it. Just clean up at the end with Henry. I found the Lazer constantly gets s##t high and can't see it even in low light areas. But hey, it's still a beast and great on the evolution stand. Karlpopewoodcraft gave me a great tip with his saw and stand. Thanks for sharing

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave 2 days ago

      No problem Lee. I agree it's a beast of a saw, i wanted to highlight a few issues with it, but it has loads of power, easy to use and when I'm making straight cuts its perfect. I've not got the stand, I nearly bought it, but yet again for me, I ended up buying an AEG stand reduced to ยฃ20. I'm yet to use it yet though

  • Paul Mooney

    Big no no with a table say is a rip fence like this ! ALWAYs buy one with a full length rip fence that tightens against bed on both ends ,lumberjack saws are cheaper and have a good rip febce with extendable table too

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave 7 days ago

      @Paul Mooney yes I'm aware of the site saw, but as I've mentioned, it's still and identical saw body and top as this saw, which I'd rather stay away from.

    • Paul Mooney
      Paul Mooney 7 days ago

      @James' Man Cave u can buy the lumberjack on ebay with full fence and extendable bed for less than 150 ,its basically wats known as a site saw

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave 7 days ago

      Well that may be tge case, but here in the UK lumberjack saws are not available, and diy entry level saws like this one is don't come with a full length fence. Most if not all tge saws around this price range are identical

    Thank you for an honest review. One can fix the accuracy and obviously safety issues by building your own cross-court sled. Look up 'How to make a Cross-Cut Sled', The Wood Whisper or Matthew Cremona on RU-clip. Not to complicated and certainly worth the effort.

      James' Man Cave 11 days ago

      Hi, thanks for the comment. You will see in some of my other videos that I did build a cross cut sledge. And it worked fine. But for the many cuts I wanted to make with large sheets/lengths of wood the fence just wasn't up to the job

      The bricks are not solid, they are thermolite bricks, so was you drill into them they are pretty soft. The mortor line that I fixed into was the strongest thing to drill into

      Hi, thanks very much. Yes it is possible to leave the bark on, I would have love to have done this my self, but most of it was missing. The best way to help keep the bark on the wood, I to apply some epoxy resin to it, Bush to brush it on in 2 or 3 Coates. Hope this helps

  • Rubix 1976

    6:10, I would have used a hot air gun (paint stripping type) controlling the heat is much easier, using a flame is likely to burn or even blister the perspex.

    Very cool, beats paying for the store bought one. I haven't made one of these yet, but that might soon change. As for the matting, I've used the "grippy foam stuff", on my homemade push pads for my router table, but it never lasts long. Then one day the wife asked if I had any use for one of those silicone rubber kitchen work mats she was going to throw away. I knew right away what I was going to do with it. Long story short, my push pads now have silicone rubber on them. It's been at least a couple of years and I've never had to replace the silicone.

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave Month ago

      Haha, that grippy foam stuff, I've used it for about 15 years as drawer liner in my roll cab tool box. I always thought it was just drawer liner until about 5 years ago when everyone starting using for everything but drawer liner. I know the very matts you talk off. Will keep an eye out for them, and pick up a cheap one ๐Ÿ‘

    Gโ€™day, just watched your review - thanks for that, very good and further bolsters my decision to choose this Saw. One thing that I require is to be able to use dado blades. Can you comment on the saws suitability to take dado blades and also a quick comment on blade changing in general would be very helpful for me too if you have the time. Thanks in advance and good luck with the Ashes ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ ๐Ÿฆ˜

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave Month ago

      G'day to you buddy. Ah, dado blades! Here in the UK it is really hard to get hold of a dado stack. Why? I don't know, I can only assume its something to do with safety laws, I'd really like some my self, but can't get any. So can't comment on the suitability I'm afraid. As for the changing the blade it self, it's really quite easy, the saw comes with 2 spanners for doing this, one fits on the arbour bolt, the other fits on the arbour. Really simple to remove and refit the blade. Only slight thing I could say is for me and my hands it's a little bit tight in the space to get my hand in to refit the bolt, apart from that it's problem free. Hope this helps P.s as far as I'm concerned, we haven't played an ashes test match yet, that was just a warm up game! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ

    Nice video James. Are you or have you done a review on the AEG palm router? Plus, is the parkside band saw ok for occasional use by a D.I.Y.ER? Thanks for sharing

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave Month ago

      @Lee Vacer fpv no problem, the ridgid router is identical to what I have. Im glad I have it, it feels nice in the hand, and it's easy to use. I've a few lidl/aldi tools also. The bandsaw is made by scheppach by the way ๐Ÿ‘

    • Lee Vacer fpv
      Lee Vacer fpv Month ago

      @James' Man Cave Awesome. Thanks for the swift reply. Oh, so I'll check out the Rigid reviews on the router. Cheers. I'm a Parkside fan and have seen the bandsaw a few times and thought "is this any good" ? Maybe I'll pick one up next time around. Thanks again

      Hi Lee, I hadn't thought about doing a review of the AEG palm router, mainly because in the USA AEG is rebadged as Ridgid, and there are a few reviews of it on RU-clip already. And yes, the Parkside bandsaw is perfect for all levels of diyer, I was in 2 minds about buying one, but it's now one of my favourite tools

    Great upload James as usual! Noticed a few new bits of kit on this though that Iโ€™ve not seen before. Any likelihood of reviewing the Parkside bandsaw and the grinder/sander etc , that were new additions? Hope you are loving the beer/ Lager ( on expenses) at work !!

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave Month ago

      Hi David, I've had the Parkside Bandsaw about 4/5 months now, there will be a review of it in the future, think it's featured in about 4 of my videos now. The bench disc and belt sander, I only bought last weekend from Aldi, so once I've put it to use for a while I'm most likely going to do a review of that also. As you know, I like to use my tools a fair bit first before I review them. Unfortunately I'm back in the UK now, so the 'company' beers are no more ๐Ÿ˜”

    How are you finding that ferrex belt/disc sander?

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave Month ago

      To be honest, I've used it for about an hour in total so far. Once the shelves are set up straight, it's worked great. Comes with a large (50mm?) dust port, so at the moment I can't connect it to anything

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave Month ago

      Hey mate, thanks for the super cool comment. I built the original bench about 2 years ago, because I just couldn't get any more workspace in the garage. What I didn't mention is that it folds out over the top of a motorbike I have against the wall, so it means I didn't have to move that either

      To be honest, I'm not to sure. If it's a water based paint then I would say yes, but reading up on it, people recommend spraying breakthrough paint in light passes. Hope this helps

    Great upload James. Well worth waiting for. Actually looks like something that would help me out quite a bit. My workshop is the wifeโ€™s garage and to do even the smallest job at weekends I assemble my version of Charlie DIYs workbench (which is absolutely superb incidentally) , this would give me a virtually instant, small, workstation!! Great to see your material again, youโ€™ve been missed!โค๏ธ

      James' Man Cave Month ago

      Aww thanks David. Made an extra push to get this finished yesterday. I've seen his workbench, it does look really good, unfortunately I don't have room for it in my garage. This workbench works really well for me in my space. If I've not got it covered in junk ๐Ÿคฃ

      Hi Chris, that's excellent to know that I've been of some help to somebody. Had to rush to make this video in time for a works trip, so being of use to you makes it worth while for me ๐Ÿ‘

  • Christofix - DIY Projects

    I know from experience that you never have enough table space in a workshop. But in smaller workshops such as mine there is no room for an extra table. This is a very handy solution for that problem. You made me think now how I can build this in my shop for extra space. Thanks for inspiring me!

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave Month ago

      Hi Chris, I'm now at that point where I've got no room left on any of the walls for anything else. I think a shop reorganisation for me is a must ๐Ÿค”

    Great review James. Iโ€™m currently making some MDF skirting boards and undercoating them with a couple of coats is taking me forever! Also Iโ€™ve got home made fence panels I put up just before the accident which havenโ€™t seen a coat of anything in 15 months๐Ÿ˜ณ. Just gone through your back catalogue of videos and saw this, is it ok for stuff like fence panels, but also is it ok for the likes of satinwood on skirting and wax/oil on doors? Just had a look on Amazon and itโ€™s discounted at ยฃ50 which seems like a good deal

    • James' Man Cave
      James' Man Cave 2 months ago

      Hi buddy, I've painted mdf with this, plywood and obviously the door in this video. I have only used water based paints in it, I'm really impressed with it with the paints I have used. It also says its designed for wood and metal spraying, so I will test out non water based paints soon when I spray the garage door with it soo. However, a chap in work bought one to paint his fences after I told him about it, and he thinks it's the best ยฃ50 he has spent this year. There is also a dedicated fence sprayer which I also have, but I'm yet to use.
