Thank you Craig and Axminster for excellent demo
I gave up using a track saw for a anything other than rough cutting of sheets, it was just too much adjusting to get things square, so I got the AC216TS with cabinet and sliding table, I love it, it is exactly what I expected it to be, precise and consistent.
Made a fool of myself saying why are there no dado blades!!…came in late and after re-watching it I realised that there are dado blades and they were mentioned early in the video….doh! 😂
A very informative video much appreciated 👍🏻
If you really want, you can mount the ‘left’-hand extension on the right for extra cut capacity for your fence to slide to. Lookup Badger Workshop and his AC216TS he’s done the modifications. Haven’t gotten around to it myself but plan to! Definitely need vertical support towards the end to prevent sagging though. I’ll be mounting a router in the extension table to make a poor mans Work Station 🙂
38:20 you tilted the blade only to 30 degrees not to 45. I’m really not convinced that zero clearance will allow 45 degrees
A good show. I was aware of alignment and pinching, but not the positioning of the sub-fence, which makes complete sense and seems so obvious now. Regards, Glenn. 🙂
Axminster I have received my AC254TS on the 27th and it as some problems with the rise and fall ,There is a lot of play in the wheel that controls the rise and fall as shown here in my video https://www.youtube.com/shorts/hzXTJJgfxaU
,The lock bolt is not in the wheel but with or without its still the same, And it’s very hard to winded the blade up its stiff .I put some bearing grease on the drive bar and its still stiff ,All the locking pins on wheel are done up , https://www.youtube.com/shorts/hzXTJJgfxaU
Brought my TS216 a year ago and have never made one cut on it as I could not get the sliding table set up so gave up and put the saw in the corner of the shop
Very helpful….I’m getting out to set up my table saw properly tomorrow….thanks
I have had this saw for a few weeks now , I went with the metal leg stand rather than the cabinet as I intended to fit the smaller chip extractor underneath the saw . It works very well and allows the saw and extractor to fit in the same footprint ,with only the dust bag inflating below the sliding carriage.
That’s a really nice little table saw. I enquired about it two years back and one of you guys at Axminster advised me against it for my workshop because it wasn’t trade rated for professional use. Something to do with expected motor life not being up to an hours use per day. Shame really. On my tight budget I bought a Charnwood W650 instead and whilst really quite good the one thing that is unforgivable about it is inadequate dust collection. Most sawdust ends up dumped on the ground within the cabinet. Should have paid extra for the 16A Axminster professional saw or Laguna Fusion 3 and now wished I had.
A great video,I found it very helpful as I am looking to buy that very saw ,just setting up my first shop for my retirement project and that looks like the best machine for the job. Hopefully I can get up to see soon . Andy. Cornwall.
