Proxxon’s FKS/E table saw may look like a toy, but it’s a fully functioning miniature table saw. When you’re making a scale model, a tiny error can be like flubbing a cut by a whole inch at full scale. To help model makers make exact cuts, Proxxon has been building precision power tools like this one for 30 years .
The FKS/E’s blade has a diameter of only 3”, but you can adjust the blade height anywhere between 1/32″ and 1″. With a variable speed adjustment, its ultra-quiet high-torque motor can muscle through a variety of materials. You can angle the blade for cuts up to 45 degrees. With the built-in extension wing, it can handle pieces up to 19-5/8” long. And it all fits into a package about the size of three reams of copy paper.
Despite the FKS/E’s scaled-down size, it doesn’t come with a scaled-down price. Street pricing is around $340.
