My 23 year-old junk-when-I-bought-it tiny bench-type saw was getting ridiculously dangerous to use. My wife had a project for me that required a better saw so I began to read the net and look at the stores. I saw most impressed with the feel of the fence on the TS2400LS and needed the portability and small footprint for my garage space.
I got one this weekend (along with a Freud stackable dado set) and spent an afternoon setting it up and dialing it in. Iím still not 100% adjusted on the blade being squared, and most everything else was highly accurate. Man this thing is so sweet compared to the crap I was used to.
My amateur observations to date:
1. The fence is super sweet and easy to attach auxiliary stuff to in the slots.
2. The mitre moving across the table was rough and scratched the surface a bit. I sanded it and it helped. . . . some
What really sold me on this saw was the fence. Plus, its size (small enough for storage and big enough to handle anything a hobbyist could throw at it)
Thanks for all the info provided here that helped me in the decision
