Question

Black & Decker BT2500 Table Saw


Might any of you have any knowledge/thoughts about the Black & Decker BT2500 Table Saw?

I have an opportunity to pick one up for about $125 … but I wanted to run it by the experts first.
(mind you, I am strictly a DIY/Home Hobbiest level project/woodworker–not a professional or any intention of becoming one)







Thanks for any comments, insight and/or advice you can provide.





TOM

Keep looking on CL. You can find better brands selling for same or less.

I have found at least where I live that I can buy Delta contractor saws for 100 or less. Much better saws.

What would be the objection(s) to this particular saw, though?

So, I guess I would need to check the date code on the name plate of the saw – to see if it was made after the recall/repair
