METABO HPT - Table Saws (2)
Table saws are just right for making precise cuts needed for woodwork projects. Look for a model that’s made from high-quality, long-lasting materials and a powerful motor. Larger stationary saws can take up a lot of space, but there are alternative options at Rona like compact table saws.
For those looking for something small, these benchtop table saws are just right. Used by contractors who need portable table saws, they’re suitable for quick placement in vehicles and setting up at project sites. Typically, the unit weighs less than 65 pounds and comes equipped with a universal motor. Depending on the model, some come with handy fences. A fence is the part of a saw mounted parallel to the blade, ensuring safe and fast multiple rip cuts.
There are portable table saws that come with a stand and wheels. They’re slightly bigger than benchtop models. This is the ideal choice for those looking for a standalone table. These models are still light enough to move around. A useful feature of some tables or stands is adjustable height, as this increases the comfort and ease of using the saw. Pneumatic tires are durable and long-lasting, and they offer smooth movement when pushing the table from one location to another. Some stands are foldable for easy storage when not in use.
Be sure to look for a product that’s light and comes with plenty of safety features. Examples of safety features include blade guards, splitters, and anti-kickback pawls. These help keep fingers out of harm’s way and prevent wood off-cuts from spinning back toward the operator.
