DELTA TS200 Shopmaster 10-Inch Portable Bench Saw
Product DescriptionThis benchtop saw from Delta's Shopmaster line offers accuracy and reliability in an easily portable package. It has a 13 amp, 120-volt motor for plowing through cuts and features a 17-1/4-by-26-inch table that allows for a 9-7/8-inch maximum rip to the right of the blade. There's a self-aligning rip fence that locks in parallel to the blade and a T-slot groove in the table so you can use a standard miter gauge for crosscutting. It also has a see-through blade guard with an integral splitter and antikickback fingers, and a toggle-style on/off switch. While this is a great saw for do-it-yourselfers working on smaller projects, people needing more rip capacity and a more powerful motor will want to consider a step up to Delta's TS220 Shopmaster saw. --Brian Trinen

You get what you pay for, November 14, 2005

This review is from: DELTA TS200 Shopmaster 10-Inch Portable Bench Saw (Tools & Home Improvement)Update 6/21/2006 - I traded up to the Ryobi.
Original review from 2005:
Getting what you pay for works both ways, though. This saw is cheap, and for the money you get a cheap saw. You'll get a lot better saw for more money, but then you'll be paying a lot more for that better saw, won't you?
I've gone back and forth over owning this thing, sometimes thrilled to be using it and sometimes cursing its very existence. Ultimately I think I've made my peace with it.
On the plus side, its tablesaw-ness makes it a joy to use for many applications, things that would be impossible or dangerous or just plain annoying with the circular saw. Just set the fence and rip boards to the exact same width all day, or set a stop block and cross cut. To me, a machine, compared to a hand tool, isn't faster or safer or better if you're cutting just one piece, but it should enable you to repeat the cut exactly.
One the minus side, you absolutely must...Read more

Great for the beginner weekend warrior!, March 17, 2003

This review is from: DELTA TS200 Shopmaster 10-Inch Portable Bench Saw (Tools & Home Improvement)Great entry level 1st timer table saw. Good for occasional weekend warrior and looks impressive in the suburban garage woodshop. Seriously, mine has served me well. I bought this saw nearly 10 years ago. I built a moble cart to mount it on providing an extended table area and storage below. However, as my skills and demands on it have increased (i.e. ripping and dadoing LOTS of hardwood trim)it is no longer up to the task and finally died. I got every penny's worth out of it though!

Excellent value and precision, January 9, 2003
James L. Cryer "PhotoTraveler" (Naperville, IL United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: DELTA TS200 Shopmaster 10-Inch Portable Bench Saw (Tools & Home Improvement)For the moderate woodworker or home remodeler, this benchtop table saw is excellent. The value and return-on-investment are tremendous. It is light weight, easily portable, and maintains its calibration and precision very well.I have one in my home workshop (garage), and my son uses his everyday on jobsites (wood flooring installations).
