    My new Sherwood Cabinet table saw has arrived so I have just up graded from a Sherwood 10 in Construction saw to a Sherwood 10 in Cabinet saw and I can't be happier. At the moment I have robbed the cast iron wings from me Router table and I am attaching them to the new cabinet saw.

    This is a great up grade to my shop which I have to extend so I can rip 8 x 4 sheets of ply and MDF. The Sherwood range of machinery is manufactured purely for the Australian market but its made by the same Taiwanese company who makes the Sawstop for the American market.

    1. Press the green button.
    2. Push dismembered tree carcass through the sharp spinning death wheel.
    3. If you miscalculate press big red button and call ambulance.

    What is the cost of the saw and from where did you order it?

    I don't know.
    Sir as a hobby only, I have dabbled in woodwork most of my life and I can see this is an impressive machine and likely the perfect tool for you and having that large dedicated workshop suggests you are pretty good and very serious at what you do?

    It is close to 40yrs since I bought my first ever saw table, this was about the cheapest on the market in UK at that time? I still have this back home in UK and it is still working well, as good as it ever did when I tried it out the last time I was home 3yrs ago.

    When I returned here 3yrs ago I bought a very cheap table saw here Hoyoma is the brand name, 2kw motor, runs at 5500 revs, with a good blade it will tackle any job, tried and tested on wet wood, Coconut anything I care to throw at it, this sells for around P8K, it really is a cheap nasty piece if sh*t and suffers with the same problem as all the other cheapos? the fence is terrible, just like the one I bought 40yrs ago, but back this up with a piece of wood clamped behind it and it works just as well as any other at 10 times the price, but perhaps the very best thing about these cheap light machines is they are highly portable, the one mentioned is only 13kg, when you start this up it jumps off the floor, so there is some issues when passing over big boards, but that is easily solved.

    I have written this more to let others know that your Fine machine is only justifiable for someone with a dedicated workshop and perhaps a brain dedicated to doing fine work, I have only ever worked out of a small shed and these portable Saws are the ideal choice for me, also most of what I do is far from Cabinet making, pretty rough easy stuff.

    Yeah Dave 1952 thanks for the kind words. Yes I am a qualified Carpenter & Joiner and I have loved woodwork since I was a little kid. My old Table saw just wasn't cutting the mustard anymore so too speak and I just had too up grade.

    Now I have got the wings bolted on I am getting set up to have my Router table bolted to the back of the Cabinet saw and the old table saw will bolt alongside my Router table and bolted to the Cabinet saw and be used as my cast iron feed out table. So when its final completed the weight of the whole set up will be just over 400 kg. Meaning no vibrations on the table top meaning no saw blade vibration giving a cleaner cut.

    I forgot the cost of buying & shipping it here from Perth Australia was 215,000 PHP but it wasn't the Cabinet saw of choice I really wanted the sawstop cabinet saw but they wanted 650,000PHP and it only had a 1.5 hp and my saw is 3.0 hp
