I am almost definite to buy TS2500ci Scheppach Table Saw.
The cast iron table bed/table top is not “mirror finished” ground as found in most table saws in the market (so far as I’d seen in the advertisement).
Does it really matters?
Your comment please.

1st: Is the table ground flat within a couple of thousandth’s across the surface? Is so then you good.

2nd: If the non-mirror finish to the top does not cause a extra friction as a piece of lumber slides across the top I still don’t see an issue.

Looks like it has a sliding table and dust collection built into the guard; also Very nice to have.

I do not know this saw. What you look for is smooth and friction free. Also a surface that will remain as it starts with little or no maintenance. A painted surface would be great if the paint didnt eventually come off.. It is about low friction and long wear.

Can you see one in person to test it out?

When I purchased my saw and jointer from Grizzly years ago, I asked for references in my area then called them to get the low down. I found a guy 10 miles from home and went to his shop to check both out. Not only did I get to see one up close and hear from a guy who uses his daily, I made a new friend.

If the company has no references, I would be weary.

I think this should have been posted in one of the forums or something. Maybe a blog to follow the process of picking out a saw and setting it up, etc. Nevertheless, I wish you luck and a friction free future.

“Attached picture for members to review”
Picture is too small and out of focus to really ” review” anything about the saw….This really isn’t a project and probably should be posted in the forums section . Have a great day : )
