Machine overview

By

The Metabo TS 254 table saw is a relatively light-weight jobsite saw meant for the construction industry and basic home improvement. It is the larger brother of the Metabo TS 216.

All-round machine

The TS254 is an all-round decent machine, with no significant advantages or disadvantages when compared to similar machines like the Bosch GTS 10 J or DeWalt DWE7492. Its fence works well enough, locking into place in the front, and is quite accurate if well-adjusted.

Is it quite lightweight and can be moved around easily, especially with the optional wheel set. It is powerful enough for most tasks, with its 2000 Watt motor.

Broken height adjustment

One common problem by many users is that after some time the height adjustment mechanism breaks down. The blade and motor are moved up and down by a threaded rod. However, after some time the thread can get worn out, and it will no longer work.

According to Stephen from Suffolk Craftsmen, who made a video about this problem (see below), Metabo has replaced this on newer machines with a much thicker, ACME-style thread. If you want to check whether you have the new or the old type of thread, the old part number is 00668380. So if you have that listed, then you have the type of thread that might break. You might be able to get a replacement by contacting Metabo.

Machine Atlas Verdict

All-round decent machine that has no clear strengths or weaknesses. Do make sure you get one with the improved height adjustment.

  1. Need to align saw blade to the tracks, mine is misaligned at the rear And causes cutting marks
    Where are the adjusting bolts/screws to adjust complete housing underneath the table top?

    • There are two screws (10mm) on the right side of the machine. Rubber hammer needed to un win the weight while setting the alignement.
      Sorry for my poor English.

    • Heb op woodworking.nl een reactie geplaatst. (In het kort: Amazon heeft bepaalde eisen om prijzen op te mogen halen, en ik voldoe daar nog niet aan voor UK en DE, alleen voor .com)
