Top 1 Best NovelLife Saws

What Real People Are Saying About The NovelLife B07CHLQYXN

4 stars as a table saw, 5 as a budget table saw. Great buy for the price!

This is a nice little hobby saw. I love the size. I can store it easily, even in my tiny workshop. When it comes time to put it into service, setup is quick and simple, especially if the correct blade is already installed.

All three pictured blades were included. I immediately installed the 60t blade and gave it a try. Installation was easy, though the process does have room for improvement. To get to the blade arbor, one must remove the entire table from the base (it's four screws in the corners). There's a drive belt that needs to be dealt with when the table is reattached to the base. All the necessary wrenches were included.

There are two key features I wish this saw had: 1) blade height adjustment, and 2) arbor tilt. The blade height is fixed at a fairly tall height for such a small blade. It's square to the table, near as I can tell. I guess it would be nice if there was a miter slot on both sides of the blade instead of only on the left, but that's less critical to full table saw function. Removable/replaceable throat plates would be nice, too.

Back to blade height, the 80mm blade is exposed just enough to cut through 3/4" boards. Not only did it cut the pine successfully, it was a very, very smooth cut. I was able to cut strips a bit thinner than 2mm, which I then cut into strips that were 4mm wide. Nice, consistent cuts. The amount of exposed blade makes ripping thinner material a little less fun; the out feed starts to flap around crazily once the blade starts grabbing at it. I had to hold it down on the table with my free hand. Adjustable blade height would mitigate that problem.

The rip fence is quick and easy to install and adjust. The measurements marked on the table were about 1mm off from accurate, but they matched each other. As long as I was careful lining up both sides of the fence on the scale, I got square cuts. Of course, it's always a good idea to check it with a square to be sure.

The miter gauge was an easy assembly and seems to be pretty accurate. It slides freely through the lone miter slot, and it passes maybe 10mm from the blade, so even fairly short stuff can be crosscut without too much difficulty or excessive danger.

It's not very loud as power saws go. I don't think I would try to use it if someone was trying to sleep or something, but it's fairly quiet. Most of the sawdust stays in the dust box under the table. No way built in to hook up vacuum, but it's pretty easy to shake the sawdust out into the garbage. Hardly any accumulated outside the dust box. A quick pass with a dustbuster and it was all cleaned up.

For the money, this one is tough to beat. It's missing a couple features, but it sure does what it says on the box. A hobby saw that does everything this one does, as well as offering the adjustable blade height, tilt arbor, and so forth is about 4 times the cost (more than a lot of full-size, full-featured table saws). Overall, I'm pretty happy with this purchase.

Bottom line: this is a great value for the money. It's well built. I expect it to last a long time.I would recommend this saw to any casual hobbyist, and maybe even the more dedicated ones. I would not recommend this saw to anyone who needs a tilt arbor and/or blade height adjustment. One more thing to consider is tat this saw has an unusual arbor size at 16mm, so there aren't that many blades out there to choose from. In fact, I haven't been able to find any aside from those that were included with the saw.

Great little table saw

This saw is the perfect size for cutting wood pieces for the jewelry I make. All instructions are in Chinese, however the illustrations are excellent so no difficulty putting together the few pieces. I will order a finer toothed blade at some point to reduce chipping. The blade height cannot be changed, so that is a drawback. Overall, I am pleased with the purchase and recommend it.

A neat little saw - when the skillsaw just aint gonna get it

I'm just cutting little strips of moulding to use as drawer dividers, and so far methinks we gots a nifty and precision-cutting little tool here. Use it for the right jobs and I think it's something that'll last. I'd sure get this before I'd buy some of the big-name minis that are around.

Update: Perfect for its task. Quiet. When you need to cut that silly little mm, it does. One thing, it's so easy to just pick up...the t-square slides freely off. A plus would be to have little click-ins on the t-square dial, at least on 45 degrees, and 0. If you're off a little, it's off a little. I would definitely get this again.

Started off good but now it lacks power

I've had this for a year now, I've only used it 3-4 times. The first 2-3 times it had plenty of power to cut through small pieces of wood, but now it won't even cut through a 5mm x 5mm strip of pine. I can't really recommend it.

Editing my comment from 2 stars to 4. I have found that the drive motor sprocket has two set screws to hold it to the shaft of the drive motor. these screws had come loose and the shaft could spin inside the sprocket. Make sure and tighten these regularly and the ones on the blade shaft sprocket.

Dollar for Dollar, it's precision and well worth the price!

When I first received this little saw I was a little too hasty in my judgment. Turns out the saw really made my project much easier, more precise and I would not have been able to do the project with out it. It's a fantastic saw with precision cutting and accuracy. For the money, it's a fantastic buy and definitely a winner in my woodworking shop!
