Rolls Royce of Table Saws?

Steve Dodd and the new Harvey HW110LGE table saw

It is with great pleasure we announce the arrival of a new Harvey table saw to augment the array of tools in the Ulmarra shed. Definitely ‘up scaling’ here….. a thing of beauty as well as performance. Reviews suggest that the Harvey HW110LGE table saw represents very good value for money.  

The Harvey HLG110LGE Table Saw

The necessary research and leg work was done by club members Neil Cryer and Steve Dodd.  Neil has a Laguna at home and Steve has a Harvey. Both are experienced and talented woodworkers regularly using their table saws particularly for box making. They both agreed that the Harvey ticks all the boxes (and makes them!) for the price range. So, Neil organised to purchase the Harvey for the CVWA.

 It’s very accurate, quiet, with a wonderful big cast iron table top and the fence glides and locks like a dream.  The 3hp motor means it has lots of grunt. It weighs a ton but Neil and Steve fitted a mobile base so that it can be moved around easily.  With a 250mm diameter blade rotating at 4300rpm, a ripping capacity of 750mm (with fence attached) and a maximum cutting height of 75mm it should be able to handle most jobs.

Neil and Steve spent some shed hours doing the assembly and finishing touches of fine tuning the fence (see photo). After taking measurements to make a zero tolerance insert, Steve used Boeshield T-9 to wax and protect the top.

It was agreed that ‘kid gloves’ and a metal detector would be close by at all times. Given that a number of newer members are interested in box making the new table saw should see a bit of use.
