Looking at both of these table saws, they looked to be the same, with just slight differences in looks. I was wondering if the accessories for the Micro Mark would work with the Proxxon saw?

The Micro Mark has a lot more accessories compared to the Proxxon. The only reason why I ask is that I might be able to pick up a slightly used Proxxon table saw at a good price.

Any input would be great.

Junk. Buy a 14” bandsaw and if budget is an issue look for an older Craftsman 12” bandsaw/sander.Put the rest of the cash in GOOD blades,guides, fences,sanding belts, good light or lazer etc.

Loco: Sounds good but a bandsaw will not do what I need.

I have an old 4” Jarmac model maker’s table saw. Here is the advice I can give.

None of these have much power. They can cut up to about 1/4” wood with the right blade (see below) and bog down with heavier stuff. “Attachments” mean very little. You can make all that are necessary. The ONLY blade that I have found that works well is a 4” dia 1/16” wide (kerf) carbide tip blade. I found a 48 tooth one at Harbor Freight a few years back, bought three. Haven’t seen a 48 tooth 4” blade since. Try the Internet. Actually, these small saws are more prone to nipping a finger as you are working with small stuff so close to the blade. Use push sticks and anything else to keep your fingers from the blade. Handy little saws for model making and small stuff within their capability.
