Well made good solid constuction but you need to be an engineer to assemble it, no list of contents that would have been very usefull in my case,as the packaging was extremly damaged, the top and bottom of the box were open. Fortunatly all the bits were inside.
Have used this once so far and it was a pretty good item. It is solid and well made and i am intending to use it eventually for making frames for my art. For the money, it is a good compromise between the big boys and the cheap end of the range. Took some setting up though but its well within the scope of your average diyer.

Husband loves his new saw after getting missing screws and bolts and washers from draper so thta he could get it set up probably.
Great value for the money spent.
Another 24 hours to rectify faulty blade assembly. Had to get an expert engineer to rectify. Now a perfect tool and can recommend it. Suppliers please check before dipatching.
Draper 69122 254 mm 230-Volt 1,500-Watt Table Saw : Requires a bit of time and patience to set up, you’ll have to run a few scrap cuts through to calibrate the 0-scale on the left and right of the cutting blade, but you would have to do this if you ever change the blade too.
Cuts well but very noisy and tinny.
An exceptionally good machine.
The only drawback is the quick release guide is not as quick to release as i would have liked. The extra blade is worth £30 making the price of the machine well worth it. Wickes does exactly the same machine under their name but without the extra sides. The extra work area again makes this machine an excellent buy.
Ideal for diy and light timber cutting. My only ‘niggle’ is the fact that i was not able to purchase the stand for it from draper.
I bought this saw for my husband who was really pleased with it. Only one slight problem, the blade did not quite line up and wasn’t cutting quite straight. The gentleman on the helpline hadn’t a clue how to fix this problem. My husband added a very thin washer and is now completely happy with it. We would recommend it to everyone. In fact i was telling a guy about it yesterday and he popped over to see it. He has a request for one on his xmas list.
Just recieved this saw set it up and it works a treat its got a spare blade as well.
