The Metabo TKU 1693 panel saw is a medium-sized machine which was part of the well-known Magnum series. It is the successor of the TK 1688, and has a more sophisticated and stable sliding table. In comparison to its predecessor and sibling (the TK 1256), it is a proper panel saw, and not a table saw with a sliding table.
In addition to the sliding table (a long and shorter version), a scoring knife and table extensions (length and width) are available. The TK 1693 misses some of the unique features (groove cutter head, mortising table) of the 1688, but most people won’t miss those on a panel saw.
This is one of the only panel saws which has a
pull-push saw system, which nowadays is most well known on machines like the Mafell Erika and Festool Precisio.
The TK 1693 was also sold as the Metabo PKU 250, Lurem DEL18, and Emco Max after Metabo took over both the Austrian manufacturer Emco and the French company Lurem. The Elektra Beckum PK 255 V8 is also extremely similar.
Replacement Saw Blades: The TKU 1693 accepts up to 250mm diameter blades and has a 30mm arbor. You can browse some blades that will fit the TKU 1693 and have good reviews on Amazon Germany or Amazon UK.
