Startrite 275 12″ 305mm Table Saw 3hp motor
This model has the 3hp dual-voltage motor 230/400 so it can of course be used on a 230/240 volt single-phase supply in conjunction with a VFD, which also provides soft-start and electric brake.
Although this machine weighs approximately 195kg, one man and a sack barrow can transport it in a small van or possibly a large estate car. Unbolt the fence rails and then just remove the four bolts that hold the cast iron top on. It’s then a fairly simple operation to move it.
This table saw also has a full set of the ‘stick mike’ table extensions which provide a wide variety of work size options. You can extend the table to the right using all the accessories to provide a cutting width, between blade and fence, of up to 1250mm.
Or you can place them all to the left, or any variation of the two. The photos below show some of the variations.
Included with the machine will be:
- A small-parts crosscut sled (see image below)
- A much larger sled, both of which provide very accurate square cuts. (see image below)
- A tenon jig (see image below)
- A box-joint jig (see image below)
- A jig for making featherboards will also be included.
The tenon jig which is included with my Startrite 275 table saw is from the design by Matthias Wandel and you can view a video of him demonstrating it here
An extremely accurate jig which cuts perfect tenons.
The box joint jig which is included with my Startrite 275 table saw is from the design by Ed Stiles and you can view a video of him demonstrating it here
It really does work as well, and as easily, as he claims.
