Hello, i live in curacao, for the last 3,5 years, we started here a carrental company, and it was great, but then ofcours we know all corona is here, so we where force to stop with the carrental.
Lucky i have worked many years in the construction and did many things over the years.
So now i want to buy a new tablesaw, and the problem is, here on the island you dont have many choice to choce something, the best saw i could find is the makita , this one, Kooyman - Products.
Have some one here maybe experience with this sawtable, is he accurate, are there issues to know about it.
If some one can answer this for me , that would it make much easer for me😊

and i think this is realy a great site, so that we can learn from each other.

Thanks in advance

Welcome. I suggest you add the model number for the saw. Then we can give you a better answer. Makita makes pretty good tools for the most part, but models, motors are different in different countries. Will you be using it for construction work only?

Welcome to the forum. My concern is always the fence. Hopefully someone chimes in that that has that model. I seen a newer dewalt ts that has a rack and pinion fence that I found interesting .
I'm a huge fan of Biesemeyer fences ,and won’t use anything else since using one .
I’d look for a used table saw like a delta with a unifence I think their called , or the Bies

That's a pretty small saw for breaking up 4x8 sheets. It is more of a DIY or construction saw. I would also give the Bosch 4100 a hard look since it has some very important standard features, and is a favorite around here. It's a little more expensive than the Makita, but you can buy the Bosch with either a riser stand for portable use, or without the stand for use in a shop. This is very important: The width of the miter slots cut into the table. You want to get a saw with slots 3/4 inches wide. Some are narrower and you won't be able to find top quality miter gauges that fit. The Bosch also takes a dado set, some of the small saws will not. For cabinet work that dado set is going to be important, so make sure the miter slots are 3/4 wide and 3/8ths deep. There's an old saying, good ain't cheap and cheap ain't good. It applies in spades to power tools.

Hi, all, ty for the responses, i want to say that i like other saws more then the makita they have here.
There are a few stores on the island, what sell a few professional tablesaws.
So the choice i have to make, is very limeted.
If i for example order a saw in the USA, the saw cst 50% more hten the origanol price.
So, if i want to get work back soon, i must buy the makita 2407.
And i also did, yesterday.
And men im very, very disapoted at makita.
I pay here for the saw ANG 1661,-, and it is even complet.
I did my resurce before i buy him.
I saw mofie from unpacking, from england, usa, th netherlands, ect, every country, has the saw complete, exeped at curacou, realy terrible.
Im missing the pieces you need from the guidens, and they didnt even put a duster adaptor in it, its realy a shame for a machine like this.
They know that curacao dont have saftyrules, so the safe money on there.

(Excuse me for my english, but im realy mad about makita)
