Sliding Table Saw
A woodworking workshop machine for cutting sheet material.

a large sliding table saw.
The most used tool in the shop, a large panel saw.

These panel saws are literally modern marvels. I can remember years of struggling sawing sheets up with a normal bench saw, mostly with an offsider, but now and again alone, and what a pain it was. The first time I used one of these I thought I was in heaven. They are a sheer delight to use. I will not list all their benefits here and each one has it's own specifications. All I will say is that they are all about EASE OF USE, SPEED and ACCURACY.

If you are thinking that your business may need one of these, go ahead and get one. They save so much time. If you have a home workshop you can get very small ones that are very efficient. The sliding table is just a revelation if you have never used one.
