Review

proxxon-kgs-80-001Well it all started good enough, but the saw didn’t actually finish a cut before there was a pop (belt slipping off somewhere) and then the motor just spun without the blade turning – I will let you know what the outcome is when I return it.

Price: approx £151.00 (2008) from Axminster Tool Centre

 

 

 

Conclusion

No luck here as it failed very early on and I didn’t get very far….

It did not feel as stable and solid as maybe it should and there was some chattering of the parts when starting to cut.
