I have recently started my own wood working business in my home workshop, at the moment it is just evenings and weekends, working around my 9 to 5 office job. This is something I am looking to grow and to eventually do full time.
I have had a very basic table saw for a while now and to be honest it is total rubbish, the fence is not parallel to the blade and the mitre slide has so much slop it it, it probably wobbles by about 3 degrees either way of square. So I am looking to upgrade to something that is actually fit for purpose and will last me a long time, but I could really do with some advice on what to go for.
I have been looking at the “Scheppach Precisa 3 Saw Bench 280mm Sliding Table Saw 240V” which is £1350, that would be my limit cost wise. It looks a solid unit and is more that good enough for what I need, I wouldn’t be outgrowing it any time soon.
The other option is something like the “Bosch GTS 10 XC Professional Table saw (230V)” which is more of a portable unit and I know someone who has one in there shop and rates it. The only issue I have is that I might outgrow this one and need to spend big money anyway.
The other issue is I have never heard of Scheppach, so have no idea of their reputation, there are only a few reviews online.
If anyone has any experience with this brand or can suggest another brand or the best way forward with the type of saw I should go for I would really appreciate it.
Thanks a lot
