What Customers Said about the Product – Positive Comments
The Shop Fox W1820 3 HP 10-Inch Table Saw with Extension Table and Riving Knife is pretty easy to assemble, if you are putting it together on your own then you may need to use a couple of boards and clamps to hold the wings while you screw them into place.
When the saw has been assembled it remains stable, it doesn’t vibrate, it has plenty of power and the dust port works really well.
The blade that came with the saw powered through a piece of Oak that was a couple of inches thick and the riving saw performs really well. Interchanging the riving saw and the splitter is pretty straight forward too.
Negative Statements, if any, were Minimal
The Shop Fox W1820 Table Saw is quite weighty and at five foot long the cord seems a bit on the short side. Woodworkers who want to move the saw around their workshop will benefit from buying the mobile base when they purchase the saw.
When the mobile base is attached it is easy to move the heavy saw around. Overall the saw is thirty four inches tall and that is marginally shorter than other saws of this type, those who are used to working with a slightly taller saw might want to place a base underneath it.
Some Final Comments
Overall the saw is a great deal, it is reasonably easy to put together and it performs very well. The table saw has a good dust port and the extension table adjusts easily. The saw cuts accurately and it is a great saw at a bargain price. Look around and some sites are offering free shipping on this item which makes it an even better deal.
