Top 4 Best Shop Fox Saws

What Real People Are Saying About The Shop Fox W1837

the good news.
  • John - July 1, 2018

First, the good news.... 1) Off the delivered pallet, the saw put together well with good squareness and with little adjustment to any parts. 2) The saw functions very well. 3) the steel wings and the wheels make it easy to lift and move short distances. 3) The saw works well in small shop spaces.
Now the hard news.....1) Truck delivery only to the front of my gravel driveway. The saw's considerable weight make it VERY difficult to get to my shop. 2) The lower dust removal part works, but using a zero clearance saw insert produced a lot of dust to the atmosphere, needing a supplement air purifier to handle it. This is the primary reason I gave the saw a 4 rating.

Great Saw! Easy assembly! Little to no adjustments necessary!

Easy assembly and little to no adjustments necessary. Kind of embarrassing to admit, but make sure you push the start button with some effort when testing it. I pressed ithe button not realizing it had a lot of resistance and it wouldn’t start. Almost resorted to calling tech support, but figured out the button needed more force when I got fed up and pressed it hard out of frustration. Lessoned learned I guess. Lol. Great saw so far though!

Super happy with this purchase

Super happy with this purchase. I bought this to replace a very good compact saw, but I wish I'd bought this one years ago. It's so precise, solid and easy to use. I've already made cuts and joints that I never would have been able to make before with my old saw. Customer service was easy to work with and sent a replacement for a bent part when I was installing it. I'd buy it again.

Not top quality, but good buy for the price

Great saw for do-it yourself at home projects. Definitely not industrial quality. Required removal and correct installation of the center caster mounting bar, was installed upside down. Some minor adjustments to the blade tilt and fence measurements. Recommend good waxing of the top after removal of the shipping oil, it will show rust quite quick. Fence lock-down came apart after a few uses but was easy to reinstall/repair. Overall, good saw for the price.

Great saw

I moved up from a POS old table saw to this Shop Fox. I am very happy. My wife is tired of hearing me come back into the house and tell her "Have I told you how nice the table saw is???" Wow, it cuts straight lines! I'm doing hardwood flooring and am making a lot of crosscuts and rips--the factory blade has done fine--have not had to replace it yet. The adjustments are all really nice. When I received the saw, it was missing one rubber foot--one easy phone call and I received it in just a couple days. Great customer service. Assembly is gonna take about a day--lots of time to ensure the "wings" are flush & shimmed with the fixed top, but it's perfect. Yep, I am very happy with this saw.

The Shop Fox W1837 was really our preferred Shop Fox Saws. However, there were a range of other truly high quality Shop Fox Saws we wanted to show you here that only just fell short.
