Review on the Makita 5477NB Table Saw

This particular table saw can be used and reused number of times without any glitch like you would expect from the same. The weight and precise cutting provided by the table saw is said to be one of the best by the customers. If you have worm drivers then you would know how powerful those can be but at the same time you might have experienced the weight of the same. The table saw here in question has a weight that could make any carpenter or a specialist love it. The design of the same also makes it a sought after table saw in the market.

You can easily use the saw for small construction, fixing and framing purpose (like you always wanted your saw would do back home). It actually serves the need for a home based wood cutting. The button that comes for the blade changing lock is made of plastic and this might be a bit of a problem who wants such a thing to be made of metal. Another thing that needs special mention is the price of the table saw and that is really reasonable for such an advanced one.
