We offer a range of table saws to suit diverse woodworking needs. This includes compact portable saws, ideal for job sites or small workshops; contractor saws, which balance power and mobility; and robust cabinet saws, designed for heavy-duty, precision work in larger workshops.
Cabinet saws are heavy, powerful, and designed for accuracy, ideal for professional workshops. Contractor saws are lighter, slightly less powerful, and more portable, so very suitable to take around to multiple jobs per day. Portable table saws, the most compact, are perfect for DIY enthusiasts and those with limited space in their workshop and home.
Our table saws are simple to calibrate and feature clear measurement scales for accuracy. For best results, regularly check and adjust the alignment of the blade and fence. Using a high-quality miter gauge and ensuring your workpiece is firmly against the fence will also enhance accuracy.
Only our jobsite table saw comes equipped with a standard blade suitable for general woodworking tasks. However, for specific applications, you may want to purchase specialised blades separately.
Some of our table saw models include extension tables or outfeed supports, enhancing your workspace for larger projects. Please check individual model specifications for these features.
We pride ourselves on offering an extensive range of blades tailored for diverse sawing needs. This includes blades in varied sizes from 10 to 12 inches, giving you a wide choice when it comes to blade dimensions. We also carry smaller blades which have been optimised for handheld power saws. Each blade type is meticulously crafted, ensuring optimal performance for specific tasks and saw varieties.
When choosing a blade, it’s important that you take into consideration the material you intend to work on and the finish you aspire to achieve. A sophisticated project needing a clean finish might necessitate a blade with a higher tooth count for precision. Conversely, preliminary rough cuts on a job site table saw may simply require a general purpose blade.
Our blades are the culmination of extensive research, making them versatile enough to gracefully handle everything from softwoods and hardwoods to laminates and specific advanced plastics. Each blade is fine-tuned for impeccable, precise cuts, irrespective of the material.
Blade teeth play a pivotal role in determining finish quality. A blade with fewer teeth is used for ripping, and can facilitate speedier cuts, ideal for rough work. In contrast, more teeth are needed for cross cutting and translate to finer, detailed finishes..
Regular cleaning to deter resin or other build-ups, coupled with professional sharpening sessions, remains vital. It’s also advised to lubricate moving parts as needed, to keep everything moving smoothly. Safe storage, away from corrosive environments, and cutting only suitable materials accentuate the blade and table’s longevity.
Indeed. Our blades are devised with wide compatibility in mind, fitting a gamut from benchtop to job site saws up to the intricacies of heavy-duty cabinet saws. Just be sure to cross-check specifics like blade diameter and arbour size.
You can, as long as they match the specifications required. The key factors to consider are the blade diameter, arbor size, and blade kerf width. It's important to check the compatibility for safe and efficient operation.
We know how critical tolerances are when working on any kind of woodworking project. That’s why the models we stock at Timbecon offer tight tolerances to ensure accurate and reliable cuts. These high standards of manufacturing precision enable woodworkers to achieve exacting results in their projects, whether they're crafting fine furniture or undertaking detailed joinery tasks.
Safety reigns supreme. Before any adjustments, always disconnect the power. Employ protective gear, such as hearing protection and safety goggles and keep any loose clothing, hair or jewellery secured away. Ensure the blade is affixed securely and always be vigilant, adhering to manufacturer guidelines and routinely conducting safety checks. Be sure to use push sticks and other safety devices to prevent your hands from getting too close to the blade. Where possible use all riving knives and blade guards as provided, and do not push the timber laterally against the blade; it will kick back. To avoid danger if the material does kick back, be sure never to stand directly behind the blade, but rather slightly to the slide.
You’ll need a combination of the following PPE before using your table saw:
- Safety glasses (or face guard if appropriate)
- Ear protection
- Dust mask
- Protective footwear
Avoid wearing loose clothing or jewellery while using your table saw (or woodworking in general!) to prevent anything getting caught in the machine.
More powerful table saws will require a higher ampere circuit. You’ll always be able to find out the power requirements for your table saw in the model’s specifications. At Timbecon, our table saws generally require around 1500W to 2400W of power.
Ripping blades are honed for longitudinal cuts along the wood grain. Crosscutting blades shine in transverse cuts across grain lines. Combination blades are the most versatile of the lot, adept at managing both tasks, eliminating the need for frequent blade swaps.
Absolutely. Catering to the nuanced demands of woodworkers, we offer blades fashioned for niche tasks. This encompasses dado blades for precise trench cuts and blades that shine when faced with laminates.
Cutting capacity will vary by model, so take a look at each of our table saws online to see what will be right for your woodworking project. You can also give our team a call to discuss your project, and see which model they may recommend.
It is possible to adjust the blade height and angle on any of our table saw models. Follow manufacturer instructions for more detail on how to adjust these features on your saw. Adjusting these features means you can accommodate different types of cuts and different thickness of material.
This can depend model to model. If you are using a table saw, we recommend using ear protection to minimise any damage to your ears while using the saw.
A dedicated dust extractor or workshop vacuum is ideal for use with a table saw. You’ll want to make sure that any dust extractor you purchase is compatible with the dust port located on your table saw.
All of our table saws come with a dust port, which can be connected to a separate dust extraction system. At Timbecon we also have a selection of dust extractors - get in touch with our team to see which will be the most effective at keeping your table saw clear of debris and dust.
Several strategies emerge as game-changers. Ensuring your workpiece remains flat on the table, using blades apt for the job, keeping the blade aligned, and consistent feed rates can dramatically deter binding.
Our table saws will come with detailed manufacturer instructions that will take you through calibrating and aligning the fence and blade for accurate cuts. For precise cuts, it is best to regularly check and adjust the parallelism of the blade to the mitre slots and the fence alignment. Calibrate using a reliable square and follow the manufacturer's guide for best results.
Yes, our table saws are equipped with either a riving knife or splitter. These functions enhance the safety of your table saw by preventing material binding and kickback.
Storing blades flat in a dedicated, protective environment is paramount. Shielding them from dampness and accidental impacts will bolster their lifespan.
Unquestionably. We back our table saws and blades with robust manufacturer warranties, a testament to our unwavering faith in their quality and performance.
We furnish an expansive size range, each calibrated for distinct saw types, from your smaller hand-held power saws to the more heavy-duty table saws. Be sure to compare your table saw's specifications with the blade's diameter and arbor size.
A blade in its prime—sharp and clean—is elemental. Calibrating blade height, ensuring accurate fence alignment, and maintaining an even feed rate contribute significantly to a pristine finish.
Signs like heightened resistance during cuts, deteriorating finish quality, or evident blade wear can herald the need for sharpening or even replacement.
Each blade is accompanied by an explicit RPM rating, highlighted in its specifications. Aligning this with your table saw's capacity is paramount for safety.
Our blades undergo rigorous treatments, being imbued with coatings that offer resistance against rust and corrosion, fortifying their resilience even in challenging environments.
We have a select range of replacement parts for our range of table saws. Speak to someone from the Timbecon team today, to determine the parts that you need to get your table saw back in action.
'Kerf' represents the width of material the blade excises during the cut. A thin kerf blade is economical and demands less from your saw, ideal for delicate operations. Conversely, a wider kerf offers stability, especially for more robust tasks.
