Sold my scheppach 4010, so I could replace it with a saw with a scoring unit Set off to Dublin in search of replacement, 3 saws to choose from= scheppach 4020ci 3600 euro, record ts315 2395 euro (includes extractor) and fox f36-540 2000 euro. I have experience of scheppach, but none of the others. Record and Fox looked really well built machines for a lot less money. Anybody out there share their knowledge of any of these saws, help would be welcome.

These seem to be very serious pieces of kit you are looking at. Well above my needs but I just Googled them and the biggest difference I could see was their respective weights. The Record weighs three times more than the Scheppach. Is this a good thing, I'm not too sure but it should cut down on vibration. Neither of the two saws seem to comfortably deal with cutting full 4x8 sheets without assistance. I see that with the Scheppach you can keep using the 12" blade with the scoring unit at the same time, whereas with the Record you need to change down to a 10" inch blade. Finally, it seem that the Scheppach is three phase powered and the Record only two.
One thing mystifies me somewhat, and that is the prices you quoted. Looking through various web sites, the price for the Scheppach is only around the £2,600, which is a lot better than the 3,600€ you quoted. Maybe I'm wrong there.
One other thing you ought to pay attention to is after sales assistance. That is important.
Anyway, good luck and good hunting. Mind those fingers...

Thanks for reply Bernard . Price I was quoted included side extention table, 2 metre sliding carriage and extra long fence. I need it for kitchen work mostly,I usually buy my chipboard in 600mm rips. These saws suit me because of shed size.

Hi James ,I personally don't like Record saws I have a 10'' table saw I find the blade changing a fiddle. The rip fence I don't like at all theres no fine adjustment to it and it doesn't stay paralel to the blade leading to stock binding up the is no adjustment on the far end of the fence so you can't set it up and leave it I would;'t recommend it at all
