Default Clarke ct10 table saw

Hi guys, I need a table saw, as I am only a diy woodworker I can't afford a hugely expensive saw. I have seen the reviews for this one on machine mart.

Was wondering if you guys had any experience with this model and if it's worth buying?

Hi, Lee; can't help you, I'm on the other side of the pond. What is it you need to cut?
I know some guys swear up and down they can do everything they need to do with a band saw... (?)

It seems to have some good reviews, depends how heavy work you want to do and if you want to have a portable saw.

Hi Lee, It depends on what sort of woodworking you're going to be doing. If you look at the higher end of the Table Saw market, you'll note that the rip fences lock in on both ends of the table. The cheaper table saws don't. I doubt if you can do accurate rip cuts on longer pieces of stock on these cheaper table saws. If you're just going to be doing outdoor furniture or small projects that don't need very accurate cuts, I guess you could get away with using the cheaper table saws. The first table saw I owned was a RYOBI. I ended up returning it and getting my money back. I went out and bought a BOSCH GTS 10 J. It's not really a "higher end" table saw, but what a difference! Totally happy with it.
Cheers. - Charlie

I agree on the cheap saws. You just can't get a decent cut for a variety of reasons, unless you get lucky. I suggest you at least move up to the Bosch, which gets very good reviews for a contractor type portable saw. A table saw is the heart of the shop, you don't want a weak heart.

i am also agree in Cheap saws but some cheap saws does't working as well and ultimately you are losing your money. You need to go with at least one best saws which is perform better that your Cheap saws.
