Sorry for bringing back an old thread, but I've got some unexpected free time on the mill here at work, and I (obviously) can't measure my saw which is at home.

Does anyone have any accurate dimensions of the tabletop mitre slots, or any 'official' standard size? I want to make a couple of ali sliding runners but need a profile to work to.

Thanks folks :)

Not sure what saw youve got, but ive got a dewalt, multico and kity and they all take different sizes. Plus some are rectangular slots, some are T section....

I've got the saw that this thread is all about :)

I was hoping someone who'd bought it could post up the sizes - not to worry, I'm home now.

Its the same one as the Axminster version which is currently £700. A little change to the look of it and smaller table, but pretty much the same as the ts200. The total cost on the latest TS200 is about £1200

Axminster have really thrown away the rule book with their pricing now. The larger ts250 complete package was originally £650, big side extension and sliding table. A narrower extension and slightly different slider plus new look(though very much the same) saw unit now comes in at a total of £1400.

Thats £600 less than a festool table saw with sawstop, which while might not have such a good sliding table, the sawstop more than makes it 1000% better. Plus for that extra the festool will seriously hold its price, and probably be a nicer machine to operate.
