Can Ozito table saws take other brands of blades?

Hi all,

 

Before I take a leap of faith with either of the two Ozito table saws on sale in Bunnings, which are all I can afford atm, can anyone tell me if they are interchangeable with other brands of blades, e.g. Irwin?  And while I'm at it, can a circular saw blade be used with a table saw (seems to be a far better selection of them)?  Thanks in advance.

Hello @tod

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's fabulous to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your question about Ozito table saws.

 

Saw blade sizes and applications are usually listed on the instruction manual of the Ozito table saw. For example, certain table saws will only take blades that are 254mm in size, others require that the saw blade must be rated for certain speeds otherwise instability and injury could occur. Before purchasing the table saw I suggest asking the tool specialist in the department to let you have a read of the Ozito table saw manual. 

 

Another method is to do a visual inspection of the Ozito saw blade itself. There you will see its rated speed, thickness of the blade, bore diameter, and number of teeth. If you were to get another saw blade, it would have to meet the size, speed, bore diameter, and thickness of the original blade. 

 

If you have any other questions regarding the table saw, please let us know.

Just a warning- whatever you do, don't use a Craftright blade, even though it says its "interchangeable". Nearly flew right out of my saw and only the plastic guard saved me not having a left hand...

That sounds like a really dangerous experience @seannami. I will ask one of the team to reach out and get more information. Many thanks for sharing.
