Other places seem to sell this kit for nearer to £700 so you might want to jump on it quick.

If you want a table saw, get one of these, the quality is incredible and the price is basically giving it away!

to be fair for £700 or less you can get this brilliant kit
https://www.ffx.co.uk/tools/product/Dew ... -Table-Saw
i paid about £100 less a year ago from them and the best battery table saw i have ever used :thumbright: ----



--------------ok the only only one but compared to the 742 flip saw i have its far more practical far quicker to adjust and more accurate :thumbright:

Probably a great bit of kit but not really a comparable product I would say.

Be warned if you buy one, they are big when fully set up, foot print is 1400 x 1000. My workshop is too crowded these days so this one is going to be living on the patio :lol:
Bonus though, unlimited infeed and outfeed :mrgreen:

Challenge now is to find a suitable garden furniture cover so it just looks like a big BBQ :scratch:

I was planning on using a suitably sized furniture or BBQ cover I can just drop over it.

Not an option, no room to store it inside and the workshop is up about 8 steps, far to heavy to manhandle it up there on my own.

the trouble you have is a warm machine
you cover in a plastic so no circulation
as the air cools it can hold far less moisture so it forms as drips under the top then falls as rain
this can cycle ever day with heat and cold :cb
you may help if you can form say two 30% slopes in a /\ formation with nothing between the ridge and bottom to let the condensation run down the roof hit the side and with a small gap drain to the ground outside

I'll see what I can do. It would be nice to have a shed for it or keep it inside but that just isn't an option right now.

Hello Rorschach
If you go down the garden cover route I would tape the inner seams with waterproof duct tape eg gorilla and bearing in mind that if it rubs on the sharp edges as it moves it will quickly get a hole in it as mine has on my potting bench on the allotment. Slugs love it.

In cold weather/high humidity round here you get condensation forming on all the inside aluminium/steel on the greenhouses even if protected so that would be another consideration. You could clear shellac/clear acrylic/wax polish parts of it to protect it a bit more that might help
