New! WARRIOR 10" Table Saw From Harbor Freight – Unboxing, Tests & Complete Review!

New! WARRIOR 10" Table Saw From Harbor Freight – Unboxing, Tests & Complete Review!

Here’s my initial review of this new table saw from Harbor Freight Tools. This seems like a great table saw for all home DIYers, as it gives a great cut, it’s lightweight and very easy to use.

    I just bought one, and the orange gear for setting the bevel is too low and does not engage the teeth above it, so I have to push loosened lock get it in place. Is there a way to adjust the position of the orange gear or the black piece it engages.?

  2. Matt Long Realtor on July 9, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    I was looking for this for a setup, which you said you do not cover, but outside of the rubber feet, riving blade adjustment, blade guard which also has a nifty storage spot you pretty much covered the setup backwards. I left the video because you said you didn’t cover setup, but came back an hour later to see the video because it’s basically the only video on the product.
    I suggested you cut out the setup comment and show where the blade guard is stored, which where it’s located out of the box, and show how to adjust the riving blade, how the rubber feet go on and you’re set for setup. I only realize this after combing a lot of other videos. I would have stayed through the video if you didn’t have the setup comment at the beginning.

    what are the cons??
    what is the material of the housing or the tabletop?
    how well does the collection port really work?
    how precise is it?

    HF has 2 saws; one for $169.99 and one for $189.99. This looks like the $169.99 model. Can you confirm which one it is?

  5. Michael Kennedy on July 9, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    Very nice concise review..thank you

  6. Spinal Compression on July 9, 2022 at 10:03 pm

    I literally looked up videos for this on the set up…

  7. Neal Fedderman on July 9, 2022 at 10:03 pm

    Any suggestions on a setup attachment for dust collection?

  8. Dave L on July 9, 2022 at 10:11 pm

    Thanks for the video, probably should have mentioned the anti kickback guard as well. 🙂

  9. richer4poorer on July 9, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    Have you had any problems with the cheap looking bevel and blade height adjustment?

  10. cole mahaney on July 9, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    Scares me watching you use it

  11. Donald Merrick on July 9, 2022 at 10:13 pm

    Sorry, but I was only wanting to see the setup and am at the swearing part right now that you mentioned.

  12. Edward Zurick on July 9, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    Great review. I got one of these at a limited markdown to $119. Got it home and went to set it up. Everything went fine until I came to the rubber feet. I can not for the life of me figure out how to mount them. There is ZERO explanation in the manual, on Harbor Freight website and youtubes. Can you or someone give me a clue?

  13. pat mac on July 9, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    Another great review! I am new to wood work and I just purchased this one! Thanks for the fair, no unnecessary fluff, review Jimmy.

  14. Randomaker on July 9, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    NEVER wear gloves for any kind of tool that spins, especially a table saw. If your glove gets caught on the blade, it will pull your hand in and absolutely destroy your fingers. Way safer to not wear gloves.

  15. Dale Riff on July 9, 2022 at 10:16 pm

    Would like to be able to take the off riving knife so I y make grooves and half laps but the manual says it’s permanently mounted

  16. AXNJXN1 on July 9, 2022 at 10:17 pm

    Great review and GLAD to see someone give a positive review on HF Tools! I just spent $400.00 on my first RIDGID and spent FIVE hours trying to set it up and TRUE it… Good gracious what a PITA! Someones, less is more…

  17. Glenn Smith on July 9, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    Thanks for taking time to review this saw. Is it possible to use a dado blade on this saw? Thanks.

  18. Chad A on July 9, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    Just bought this last night! Can’t wait to try it out.

  19. Randy on July 9, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    We must take Safety before all else when using power equipment. Gloves should never be worn while using a table saw!

  20. nmssis on July 9, 2022 at 10:20 pm

    Thanks for sharing.
    Does it take dado stack?
    Is it designed to allow adjustments for further accuracy?

  21. Peter Lupia on July 9, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    Worst fence ever. I made parallel lines on the table that correspond to straight (90°) cuts and the top of the fence keeps pushing left to throw off the cuts. I’m creating a customized top, but it’s a pain to re-engineer and rebuild a product. Definitely not worth it for anyone seeking precision. I got mine for $112, so no huge complaints because it’s the motor I was after.

  22. Jackie Fernandez on July 9, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    I what the heck is that extra piece of fence for???

  23. Bill on July 9, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    How square were the cuts, is the fence rigid and square to blade? Is the mesurement scale accurate?

  24. Brad Prather on July 9, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    Thanks for reviewing this. After a few months of use is it still doing okay? Also, does the fence stay locked into position? Again, thanks for reviewing this.

  25. jeffsond on July 9, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    Can I add a stand?? Oh and thx for the video

  26. Mike Olson on July 9, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    Owned alot of table saws own a dewalt now about 800 dollars best one I’ve ever owned quiet and bigger can rip plywood by myself won’t tip or move when ripping plus very accurate cuts .has lots of power dosent bogg down very safe compared to cheap stuff you get what you pay for remember cheap is not better

  27. jeffsond on July 9, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    I just unboxed mine and took it out and realized it seems like a very cheap chintzy toy with a motor on it and a 10 inch sharp blade. When raising the blades it seems like the plastic gears are stripping. The plastic seems so flimsy and cheap I think you find better plastic on hot wheels tracks. I’m taking this piece of junk back

  28. Carey Hall on July 9, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    Thanks for the review,Jimmy! Im grabbing one soon. GO NAVY!!!!

  29. THE GUY on July 9, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    Does the universal tool stand they sell for this work?

  30. pat mac on July 9, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    Jimmy, where O’ where do I find blades for this?

  31. Andrew Saturn on July 9, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    great review but for new woodworkers: never reach for the waste board while the saw is turning. even with the guard in place, it could grab and pull your hand into the blade. if you must move it right away (for example, you’re going to make another cut immediately), use a push stick. for moving pieces, use a safer push BLOCK to apply even pressure and avoid rotating the piece as you cut (which can cause kickback, where the piece flies back and hits you in the face).

  32. Connor Evans on July 9, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    Great video! I am an over thinker, this looks like a solid saw. Is it square and truly accurate at 90?

  33. Dave L on July 9, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    I got the saw and set it up today. The only issue im having is the cap and spring that goes on the knife lever keeps popping off. Its designed so that when you flip the lever to adjust the knife i guess the spring under handle cap keeps tension on the handle so its not sloppy. Tomorrow im going to put a spec of caulk on it and put it back on there. (i have to remove the knife to put the cap and spring back on. ) Oh by the way i did initiate my blade with a small nick on my hand while putting on the blade and got some blood on the blade, i guess its a seasoned blade now hee hee. I also advise that you point the discharge of the saw dust port out the garage or shed door or it will blow all the sawdust all over the shop.

  34. Kram 1977 on July 9, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    Thank you

  35. Mike H on July 9, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    You said the set up was kind of boring and we didn’t need to see that, but actually that is EXACTLY what we needed to see. Looking to see if I can find a setup video for the Warrior.

  36. Stephen Williams on July 9, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    Can you use dado blades with this saw?

  37. jose ruiz on July 9, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    No uses guantes por favor amigo es un consejo

  38. Jeffery Long on July 9, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    I just bought this 4/20/2022 and thanks for this review. Had a table saw years ago and had a 2×4 kickback and a stomach punch and got rid of it. It was years ago and didn’t have the safety features of todays models. This vid has given me some confidence. Thanks and much appreciated!

  39. Hank Hill on July 9, 2022 at 10:37 pm


  40. Patrick on July 9, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Harbor Freight (China junk) Single Use only if the tool has any bearings…

  41. Jeff's this and that channel on July 9, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Is the plate that you remove to install your blade plastic ?

  42. Tommyknocker46 on July 9, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    They went on sale again for $129.99 as of 09/10/2021. I’m not missing out this time. My new one’s in my utility shed awaiting further instructions! LOL!

  43. Hoz Holla on July 9, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    I would have liked to see underneath. Is the adjusting for height and bevel mechanism made of plastic?

  44. jeffsond on July 9, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    I see where people have said “you won’t be cutting sheets of plywood with this thing Would that be a true statement.

  45. azcharlie2009 on July 9, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    I wonder how this compares to the Hercules? That saw used to be $250, sometimes on sale for $229. Now it’s $350 Might as well buy a DeWalt.

  46. armchairgangsta c on July 9, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Can I use a dado with this?

  47. Ronald Entrekin on July 9, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Did you miss the table saw safety lesson about gloves and saws? Glad to see goggles and muffs though. Nice chesp saw demo to.

  48. CRl Pea on July 9, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    US seabee. Bee of the seven seas.

  49. Mike Olson on July 9, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Be careful ripping plywood its light you could flip it over

  50. murphymb on July 9, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    First project, make safe push sticks. Those that come with it are not the best. Jimmy embellishes a bit on quality. It appears to be good for small projects, it’ll have to be well anchored with an outfeed table added for ripping 2x stock. He did not address fence accuracy in being parallel to the blade. It looks to be a pretty good saw for the money, probably better than the Craftsman version. A bigger table would be a plus, but that ain’t gonna happen with this price range.
