The Kity 419 Table Saw is the smaller cousin of the Kity 618 and 619. Scheppach took over Kity in 2004, and some time afterwards the 419 was continued as the Scheppach Precisa 2.0, which is still for sale today.

Newer Kity (built after 2000) machines often tend to be a bit overpriced on the second-hand market in our experience. They look a bit shinier, but all in all their quality is not much higher than many vintage machines that are 10 to 20 years older.

Extensions

In its standard configuration its rip capacity is limited, but an extension table was available as an option. The sliding table was an optional extra, just like the stand, but most second-hand versions seem to have it, making it a more interesting saw than just the basic version.

Replacement Saw Blades: The Kity 419 can take blades up to 200 mm, which is an unusual size. There are a handful of blades available, but if you search for 190 mm blades you’ll have a much wider selection available.

For example, you can find some 190 mm blades that will fit the Kity 419 and have good reviews on Amazon Germany, and on Amazon UK.

Machine Atlas Verdict

Decent table saw, but often overpriced on the second-hand market.

What we don't like

  • Not very powerful
  • Possibly difficult to find a good second-hand deal
  • Flimsy stand
  • Don’t expect high quality finishing

What we like

  • Relatively small, can be transported if needed
  • Solid machine, which if well maintained and set-up can be great for the home workshop

  1. Probably owned my Kity 419 saw for around 20 years and as a hobby woodworker it suits my needs and am still pleased with it even though some cuts are restrictive due to the 8″ blade. Yes a larger more expensive saw would be nice but this meets my needs admirably.

    I notice the comments about the sliding table and thought I would add my experience. When I bought my saw new, it was either a basic saw, or you could add the sliding table and / or the extension tables as you needed – I bought both as a complete package and glad I did.

    I also note that it is now produced by Sheppach (although not seen one yet), but have come across a variant by Axminster which apart from branding was almost identical to my Kity, except for a larger mitre slot which seems more akin to the larger more professional table saws, which is probably the only downside to the Kity having a smaller slot

    • EDIT;
      I should also have mentioned that the floor stand was also classed as an extra, something that I also bought with my saw
