Do any of you woodworkers have any experience with Baileigh woodworking equipment, and more specifically their table saws. I am considering the TS-1044H Hybrid Table Saw for my shop. I like the weight of only 260 lbs which means I probably can take it down a flight of stairs to my shop in the basement but I have no experience or knowledge about the company’s equipment, particularly quality as well as other features/aspects. The saw I am considering is manufactured in Taiwan and I am not too keen on woodworking tools made in the Far East; I like tools made in the USA, Canada, Germany and Italy. The company seems to be a solid firm that is well managed but trying to gain insight about their tools through the sales people is a lost cause.

So does anyone have any experience regarding their woodworking equipment and particularly the TS-1044H table saw.

Thanks a bunch.

I just got the TS-1040P-50 and I love it so far. I am doing videos so tune into my blog and you can see the assembly and see it in action! Baileigh has been great with helping with any questions I have about setup and such too.

Thanks Shelly but you are considered a biased sample since you received the saw free. Just as Shane is considered is a biased sample since he works for Baileigh, we are looking for unbiased results. My firm manufactures custom made furnishings for high end condo owners in places like Chicago, New York, San Francisco and we need very reliable, accurate machinery. I am hoping someone in this forum has purchased a saw from the company, used it and understand what it can and can’t do. So far we have only found one person at the company that has provided reasonably accurate information about the TS-1044H so the index for assistance, as we calculate it, is below average.

No offense to Shane(Baileigh) but as far as I can tell, most of their saws and such are the same as you would fine from Grizzly and others, made in the same place, same model, just painted different and re-branded. I haven’t looked much into it but considering an equivalent Baileigh saw costs more than a Grizzly what do they offer more to make one choose them over another company? It seems the popular saw to rebrand is the Grizzly 690. I know that Oliver, Craftex, and Baileigh all have a version and I’m sure there are more.

Actually I didn’t receive the saw for free. I won $1600 to pick whatever I want, and I paid an extra $600 to get the biggest saw I could afford. I have told you what I think so far, and offered for you to watch videos to see how it performs. If I did not like it, I would have ignored this thread. I am not getting paid to promote the saw. The contest is over, I did not sign any type of contract, so I am free to say whatever I want about the saw.

Also, I would not take the chance of myself a bad reputation on LJ by recomending something I did not think was worth it.

If your so “high end” one would think you should already be aware of what good equipment is. Shouldn’t have to come to a forum to ask questions in the first place. JMO

I thought exactly the same thing James. lol!
