I would like to look at the SKIL 3410-02 table saw. The cost of this machine is significantly less than similar offerings from the likes of Bosch and DeWalt. Bosch for rather long time has possessed SKIL and also have a little reputation of being a lower quality version of Bosch aimed in the DIY’er. But have they made a machine which is amazing value for the money and is it up to the job that many people are trying to find from a mobile table saw.
Size as well as Weight
The SKIL 3410 weighs in at 67.5 pounds and has a table size of 20″ x 26″. That is similar in weight to the Bosch 4100-09 (63 pounds) as well as the Makita 2705 (65.5 pounds). The table span of 20″ is a little on the tiny side and is comparable to the very modest Bosch GTS1031 that’s table measurements of 22″ x 22.5″. So all things considered, their can be lighter table saws accessible if portability is on the very top of your list, but the specifications that SKIL have given to their 341002 are more than sufficient to get a job website table saw.
the 341002 comes along with a heavy duty, steel folding stand with a fast mount mechanism. Okay so its nothing intelligent such as the Gravity Rise Stand available on the Bosch 4100-09, But functions perfectly well to get a table saw in this variety of costs.
Now the truly amazing news with this tool, is the fact that it really is an excellent rent ability of 24.5″. Which suggests that you can rip full size prime 8&; prime & x 4; sheet stuff in half. Expanding the table to the right of the blade which gives you the with achieve this. That may tick a box with many individuals.
Dado and blades ’sThe Blade which comes along with the 341002 is a 28 tooth carbide tipped blade and is satisfactory at best. You’ll find that it will be great for ripping but rather bad for cross cutting. That is something that you might want to replace rather quickly. The blade is obviously an area where cash is conserved by producers. Thus unless you’re purchasing something such as a SawStop, It doesn’t matter what table saw you buy, you’ll likely find yourself replacing the blade.
It’s fine to see that the SKIL 3410-02 gets the ability to accept an 8″ dado blade and can cut dado’s up to 13/16″ which is quite great for a tool this size.
The most depth of cut at /2 which; Prime is fairly typical and 2-1 90 degrees a 45 degrees 3-1/; Prime 2″
Fence and Miter
The miter track on this tool is ; Prime 3/4&. Its a bit odd that SKIL have felt the necessity to add small tabs to the miter track (See picture Below) as it doesn’t make it possible for you to make your very own jigs. The miter gauge is most likely what you’d expect from a tool in this range of costs and is Ok. Exactly the same is true for the fence. It comes along with their EZ View measurement system with a self alining fence. There are a lot of opinions from people who own this tool that the fence doesn’t move nicely and doesn’t place right sq but spending just a little time tuning and adjusting the fence should give outstanding results from this tool to you.
As with all portable table saws, the SKIL 3410-02 works on the direct drive 15 amp brush motor motor which spins at 5000 rpm. It is excellent at ripping sheet stuff and could handle most stuff. To cut thicker woods that are hard, it will make do, but updating the tool blade will make an impact to the characteristic of your cuts.
With riving knife and anti kickback pawls, fairly typical information from SKIL here you get a simple to fit blade guard. Critical to help in preventing that kickback that is dreaded
So, what SKIL have finished with the 341002 here, is make a really competent mobile table saw. Yes it may be lacking some of the features and build quality of the tools made by its own parent company, Bosch. But for slightly over $200 amazing value is represented by this tool. I’ll advise if spending spending budget actually is an issue, this tool. spend several dollars and update the blade. Spend just a little time analyzing and setting the fence up correctly. Truly get before you start using on your jobs to be comfortable with the tool. This work with them and might help you in locating its quirks and limitations.
It’s also worth noting that SKIL give a 3 year guarantee with this table saw. In the event you buy this tool, which should give you satisfaction.
What SKIL have here is an excellent table saw aimed at the home DIY’er. Its one of the least expensive mobile table saws accessible. If you’re trying to find a light that was modest straightforward table may’t warrant tools at twice the price and saw, then now this is a great option.
