You will not have to worry about the safety aspect with the Shop Fox W1819 table saw for professionals.
The design is well thought out and perfect for a classy look as well. The base table is stable and very strong. It will not wobble even it a little bit. You don’t have to worry about the stability at all.
The whole table saw is made out of very durable materials; you don’t have to worry about damaging any part. The overall strength is pretty impressive.
No matter what kind of work you will do, this space on this table is going to be ample for that.
We love the T-glide fence a lot. It helps you cut wood with very high accuracy and precision. You will notice that the fence has knurled knobs on it. These are there for you to fine-tune your adjustments while cutting wood.
The knobs are such a help! They are really to use as well.
Additionally, a miter gauge is also provided on the table saw. This miter gauge will work really well and be helpful when working with a long piece of wood.
- Accessory hooks provided

Power & Speed
You are going to be surprised after seeing the amount of power this table saw has.
You will get a 3 Horse Power triple belt drive motor. With this motor, cutting wood is like slicing butter at breakfast table.
Be it hardwood or any other kind of wood, this table saw will rip through it without a sweat. The motor runs very smooth, although it does make a little bit of noise, it can be justified by the amount of punch it packs.
Talking about the noise, it just not that big of an issue. To give you an example, we were easily able to talk when the saw was on and running, so you see, the noise will not be an issue.
You would not even have to worry about vibrations, and it runs steady.
The table will work efficiently on a 220 Volts, so make the necessary arrangements beforehand.
Customers will have a choice for rip capacity. You can either have a 29-1/2 inches rip size or 49 inches of rip capacity. You can either buy the smaller version or a bigger version of this table.
A lot of the table saws that are sold on the market have no way of extending the rip capacity. But with the Shop Fox W1819 table saw, they do provide you with a choice so that your ability to cut longer pieces of wood does not get limited because of the rip capacity of the table saw.
When you work with this table saw, you will see how it is completely different compared to other cheap table saws that are sold on the market.
The blade on this Shop Fox W1819 table saw has ability to tilt from o degrees to 45 degrees. Cutting compound miters or bevels or chamfers will be a piece of cake with this awesome feature.
But how do you tilt the blade?
Whenever you want to tilt the blade to a certain angle, you just have to loosen the blade tilt lock and turn the handwheel to set it to whatever degrees you prefer.
The height of the table on this saw is 34 inches, which is quite comfortable for almost all people.
When you work with a saw, or for that matter any woodworking tool, you are bound to make a mess around you. A lot of the table saws that do not have dust collection feature create a lot of wood dust and other mess around the place.
This Shop Fox W1819 table saw is a pro at collecting dust and saving you from a major clean-up after completing your work at your job site.
The company has added a 4-inch dust port on this table saw. This is a port to which you can attach industrial vacuum cleaners. It will suck up the majority of the dust, and you would be spared from cleaning up the mess afterward.
Really cool, eh?
If you do not have an industrial vacuum cleaner, you can even fix your home vacuum as well. Those are also going to work really well with this table saw for experts.
As this is a very heavy table saw, it is not portable. Whenever you want to move it around, you would need help.
Although one thing we would like to mention here is that you should talk with the seller beforehand about the placement of the table saw. Sometime the parcel companies will not lower the table saw from the truck to your garage because of liability reasons.
So, unless the courier guys say that they will take it out of the delivery truck and place it in your workplace, you should keep help ready when its time for delivery.
if you would like to move it around, you can buy the mobile case which is shown below in the accessory section.
As you might know, according to the laws of the USA, every table saw has to have a set of safety features.
The safety aspect of this Shop Fox W1819 table is exceptional. The biggest feature is the anti-kickback system on this table saw.
No one loves wood kickback, right? The anti-kickback mechanism will make sure that you don’t get stuff hurled at you!
The anti-kickback pawls are accompanied by a polycarbonate shield and blade guard system assembly. There is total safety with this table saw.
We love how you can actually see the wood that you are cutting through the transparent guard. You will see that the guard stays in contact with the wood piece thought out the cut. As you push the wood, the guard lifts and wood goes towards the blade.
You probably know what a drag wood pinching is, right?
To counter that, the company has added a spreader which consists of a metal place. What it does is, it prevents the kerf of the wood from pinching up after it has passed the blade and is behind the blade.
Impressive, isn’t it?
Has it ever happened to you that suddenly the wood moved towards the opposite direction? Well, they have added a safety feature for that as well.
Remember the anti-kickback pawls? When the wood moves back, then these pawls will dig into the wood and stop/slow it down, preventing any wood kickbacks.
We also love how the riving knife on this table saw is really helpful in preventing pinching.
One of the best things about this table saw is that the switch on the saw is magnetic. It also has thermal overload protection to prevent any mishappenings.
The overall weight of this Shop Fox W1819 10-inch table saw is 527 pounds.
Obviously, this is not a piece of machinery that you would move around your worksite. Once set at one pace, it will keep functioning well for a lifetime.
The total dimension of the table saw are 40 inches X 45.5 inches X 62 inches.
From the date of the purchase, you will be covered under the Woodstock International warranty for two years.
