I am new to model making and thinking about purchasing the Proxxon FET Table Saw is this the best option or is there a similar one on the market.

Hi Peter

There are others out there, but you won't go far wrong with Proxxon. Superb quality. yes

The old adge that says you get what you pay for certainly hold good with Proxxon........

I take it you mean one of these Peter?

Hi again Peter

I just realized this isn't actually the saw you meant. You are thinking of the bigger more sophisticated version. As can be seen Peter, I use the lighter less costly one, and it's coped with everything I've asked of it. With care, it'll even cut 10mm ply. It's in it's absolute element stripping down some hard sheet into strip. A lovely bit of kit for £100 or so.........

I've got one the same as Percy's and it is a great labour saver in the workshop. I've even cut 12mm ply on the standard blade but took it slowly but it did it in a much faster time than I could've cut it with a handsaw LOL! Really like it and would miss a lot. Can't see what I need a more sophisticated bit of kit for - other blades are available to make easier work of different materials.

They are ideal for balsa, the blades seem to flex a bit on hard ply if you feed it too fast. Best bit is cutting slots and less sanding on edges yes

I have the FET version, excellent purchase, cuts balsa, ply, birch, slots for under carriage and I have put 3mm epoxy glass board through mine without issue. Getting edges at 90 degree is a boon and the ability to cut uniform chamfers is very useful.
