For the small professional workshop this new cast iron table saw will be the perfect fit.
The main table is precision ground cast iron to give a flat surface that will last forever. The surface area is further increased with the addition of 2 steel extension tables offering greater support when working with larger panels and boards.
The guide fence for ripping operations slides smoothly along a solid steel bar with a measuring scale marked out in millimetres. The fence itself can be used in two positions, the second position allows for very thin cuts to be made in thin materials without obstructing the blade guard. A great feature of the fence system is the addition of a micro adjuster which allows accurate small adjustments to be made when setting the position of the fence.
The sliding mitre fence is adjustable to 60 degrees in each direction. It has preset stops to locate it accurately at 45 degrees and 90 degrees. A sacrificial fence can be easily mounted using the fixing holes provided.
On the left hand side of the saw is the sliding crosscut carriage. The table is again made from cast iron and precision ground for a durable flat surface. The table runs on four sealed for life bearings along an aluminium guide track. The fence itself can be locked at any angle from 90 to 45 degrees, and there is a positive stop to ensure the fence returns back to the 90 degree position. A work clamp ensures timber stays locked in position during the cut. A flip-over length stop for accurate repeat cutting completes the carriage assembly.
The power is generated from a 1700w (2.1/4 hp) induction motor which gives a low noise level and will run from any standard 13amp, 240v power supply.
Setting the sawblade angle and height is done using two separate hand wheels. A large easy to read scale on the front face of the machine allows accurate bevel angles to be set.
Efficient dust extraction is included as standard. Dust is collected from the back of the saw guard and a hose transfers it to the rear of the machine. Underneath the table is a hood which collects more dust and tranfers it to the same collection point. A single extractor hose connection point of 100mm diameter is provided at the rear of the machine.
The table saw is supplied with four adjustable feet for levelling on an uneven surface. For anybody needing to move the saw around the workshop our universal wheel base, W520 is the ideal companion.
Supplied with 36 tooth TCT sawblade, push stick, rip fence, mitre guide, cable and plug.

Took delivery just after christmas of the W650 and what excellent value for money.
Takes quite a while to align the blade correctly, but once aligned, cuts perfectly.
The motor is quiet and vibration free.
Bought this saw last year it's great for riping cross cutting and veneer board with fine blade panel work the people at Charnwood are very helpful went to their show last year, love my saw use it all the time
Ok, have had this for a year now and use it every day so think I can give a fair opinion on this. First unpacking and set up. I too didn't realise that bits were inside so though I had loads missing, but a quick call sorted that out. Set up was straightforward, however, it has taken me a while to get everything aligned and true to the blade, but well worth it. The motor is quiet and powerful, everything is adjustable so that you can get it true and square. If i have one gripe its that the fence does not move very smoothly with the fine adjuster attached i think because of slight flex in the way the fine adjuster attaches to the fence shoe. generally i keep it seperated and only attach it when going for final cuts. For the money this saw is amazing and I would highly recommend it.
The saw table appears to be very good for the price. It was a great pity that no unpacking and setting up information was sent with the product. It is not clear how to unpack or that there are items inside the table. Once I received the info it was all to obvious how to unpack and set up the machine safely and correctly. The extension table bolts were also missing. Once I had e-mailed you with the issues, you responded very quickly with the information and parts for which I thank you. I can't stress enough how important it is to attach the unpacking and setting up instructions to the outside of the box.
Response from Charnwood: Very sorry the operators manual was missing. If anybody ever needs a copy of the manual they can be downloaded from this site.
