I own a Scheppach TS2000 table saw and I thought I would share the following information with all you TS2000 owners.

I always felt that the sliding carriage steel wheels running on the aluminium beam was the worst feature of this saw and at the recent Alexandra Palace exhibition I noticed that the latest TS2000 had steel strips on the aluminium beam for the wheels to run on.

I asked the NMA (The Scheppach Importer) representative about this modification and he told me that it can be retro fitted to older saws.

I dually contacted them and ordered the steel strip. It is basically 5m of 10mmx0.3mm rolled steel strip and costs £10.81 (including delivery). They recommend a contact adhesive like EVO Stick to glue it on. Once attached the sliding carriage wheels have to be adjusted to take into account the extra width.

Needless to say, with this modification the carriage is much smoother and the aluminium beam is protected from long term damage by the steel wheels.

If anyone wants to retro fit their TS2000 NMA can be contacted on 01484 400488 and the part number for the steel strip is 53208100STRIP.

Hi Norm

Welcome to the group, good to have you on-board.

You're not the mighty bearded one in disguise, are you? :wink:

Cheers
Neil

Norm,
Thanks for that info - I had seen the strip at the show but being quite dumb had not asked if it could be retrofitted. Well done! I shall now order some.

Thanks NormanKing - I eagerly checked my saw to find I already had the steel strips fitted! So if you need any pics for fitting etc let me know.
Cheers

Rather than a contact adhesive, I recommend double sided sellotape. Once it's in position I squeeze it down with a cramp, virtually permanent.
