I don’t find this to be useless. I know that it isn’t designed for a full scale job, but it can work for small hobbies, such as doll houses 🏘, Popsicle houses 🏘, and such. Finger or hand amputation is a fact, as to the nature of this type of power tools 🧰. Always exercise your smarts around tools ⚒️ with an exposed (and spinning) 😵💫 circular blade. Blade guards are there to minimize injuries, but please, guys and gals, don’t rely solely on these guards as an injury free way to go. Also, I do notice the design flaw of the motor bogging down when certain loads are imposed on it . All the company needs to do is add a more powerful motor. Again, this tool is limited to small size projects only, and not intended to try to perform actual full size tasks. Always stick to small tasks and hobbies. Attempting go full bore at large tasks with this tool, will probably result in motor burnout. Your friend, Jeff.
This must be how popsicle sticks are manufactured. I imagine there’s a massive sweatshop somewhere in the world where there’s rows and rows of these table saws manned by factory workers pumping out popsicle sticks 24/7. I wonder where they get their mini belt sanders to shape the corners.
*Saw is perfect **MyBest.Tools** , stable☺☺ and accurate. Very easy to use.💯*
I wonder if you could find a better motor for it.
I love how it has a big warning on the top that says DANGER…don’t use with water. Not the, you know, questionably attached saw blade.
I think you could have made a better one, (in your sleep)…
I have one and it’s useless. It will only cut thin balsa wood. Not enough power to cut any other wood.
I think you might have missed the point on the purpose of the mini table saw. The purpose of those micro tools are for hobbyist working on small lightweight material such as softwoods, plastics, hollow tubing, xcetera. They are not designed nor engineered for heavy-duty use with thick dense material, that is not their function.
There is an entire industry on microtools and have such tools as bandsaw, scroll saw, drill press xcetera. These tools are used for miniature build, where the larger tools are just too big and dangerous. It is not to say that these Micro machines are not dangerous, they are.
Every tool has its function, that’s why it’s important to read and understand the instructions and its purpose.🙂
I actually bought one of these and was planning to use it by making a little decent Miter gage to cut comments of miniatures.
Needless to say, it’s been 8 years and I’ve never taken it out of the box 😂
Will be great for trimming out the buss.
That thing is adorable in a scary way. Can’t you replace the motor with a motor from a router? 😁
I think you are not being realistic in your expectations of this "mini" table saw. Use it what it was meant for. It is made to handle small jobs for dollhouse miniatures and crafting wood such as thinner basswood. I use it all the time for my crafting needs and have no problem with it. Don’t make it look bad because you are demonstrating it with wood and thicknesses it can’t handle. Seriously.
Why does it sound like someone making saw noises with their mouth? 😂
Most table/circular saws have a gear reduction of around 2:1 to give them enough torque to make the cut. Being that this saw doesn’t have that and the blade is bolted directly to the motor shaft, it’s just pure speed and not really any torque.
That’s the scariest toy I’ve ever seen.
There is one thing this is good at – cutting small dowel pins.
If you need to make a bunch of dowel pins, this will work pretty well.
You are using it outside the design limits of such. I have a couple of those tables and they do the job nicely for hobby purpose, like diy rc model work from balsa wood even basswood with a high quality high teeth number carbide tip blade.
The miter gauge can be improved to remove the slop with a simple leaf spring attached to the side of it to fit also on the track. All the typical safety precautions need to be observed and more so, in my opinion, because even though these tools are small in scale your hands become quite clumsy in trying to hold the material safely on the table as you wood with full scale machinery that has more room to work with.
The structure of this particular table is good the base is cast metal as well as the table top and suitable for a base for a much higher end higher performing mini table saw. I have modified a few of them to do specific cutting tasks, manually a well as semi automated, at very fast speed, to cut not only hard woods but also light metals like 1/32 wall aluminum tubing with precision. Of course these are not meant for you to build full scale cabinetry and once again you have to use the tool within the design parameters of such. The same can be said about any product, RC models as well, some are designed to carry heavier loads but some are not. It is all common sense logic.
I build scale models and have a 3" table saw of a much higher quality. It didn’t take long for me and my finger to be reminded that it is not a toy.
ive seen model makers use it for cutting balsa before
Have you seen how small the parts he cuts on a full size saw. It is a little scary.
Huh,🤔 the Chinese, what will they think of next? 😂
I guess you could cut veggies with it.
I bought one yesterday from Harbor Freight. I built a bigger cardboard box for it , Today I will cut poplar strips for my violin bow re-hairing practise. I’m excited!
love the video; the tile cutting was the best.
I bought one yesterday, and this video made it totally worth my 22 dollars (it was on sale…I wonder why?!) 🤣🤣
Now I have to google and find out if they make a micro thickness planar. I’m helping fairies build homes and furniture. 🤣
What a rubbish piece of kit that is. There are far better kits out there that actually have some precision to them. I consider that to be potentially dangerous if you don’t treat it with respect which is hard to do watching the video. Thanks for showing what not to buy.
The perfect xmas gift for your kids. I’d plan a couple trips to the ER with them, just to be a "good parent". Keep those plastic baggies and ice handy, you will need them! 😉
You want a good mini tablesaw that’s actually USEFUL? Get a Byrnes!
“For scale, here’s a small chicken”
Americans really will measure with anything but the metric system!
This is the most painful thing I have ever watched on Youtube. I bought an open box version at the "Freight" for $12.00. I looked at it when I got home and put it back in the box. Anybody in the US that wants to drive to Florida can have it.
This reminds me of the toy sewing machines that were available in days gone by. They actually worked. I guess a table saw isn’t something you want a kid to be playing with though…
THAT’S A GREAT TOY
I hope one day someone heavily modifies one where its actually powerful enough to do regular tasks of a table saw; although due to it’s size, it would still be impractical.
I have one and rarely use it. When I do I say the Rosary beforehand and throw some holy water over my shoulder.
I have a even smaller table saw for model making. it has a 63 mm dia blade aliexpress special. surprising useful for what it was meant for. I use it to cut 3mm MDF for wargaming terrain and cutting sections to fit in the laser cutter.
I wonder if this is good for balsa wood in model making?
I’m just a baby!
It’s for small hobby crafts and small detail work
I wish they made one that worked well…it would be perfect for making my bird houses 😕
LMFAO "Can’t really call that a cut, sort of just burned through it" 🤣😂🤣
It’s to make tiny bookshelves and tables for elves
Hilarious commentary, to funny
This is one of the best review videos I have ever seen.
That thing is adorable
I almost choked on my water. That was the best review I’ve seen in a long time!!! Loved it – the review, not the saw.
Thanks I will save my money
