New Altendorf sliding tablesaw
« on: May 22, 2020, 04:39 PM »
Hey, has anybody seen the new Altendorf sliding tablesaw called F25 with the slider measuring 3200mm?

Altendorf calls it the F45s little sister/brother, and it seems really interesting and even more so with the retailing price just under 7k € excl. taxes (here in Europe). [scared]

Ive always liked Felder, but seeing this makes me wonder if I should look further into the Altendorf world [unsure]

I'm just sad they never released the Altendorf 2. Would have been a sweet hybrid between a sliding table saw and a beam saw and require half the space due to the table not needing to slide.

I’m afraid I dont know what the Altendorf 2 was or was going to be since Ive never payed too much attention to Altendorf..  [unsure]

Maybe someone could tell us (me) if all Altendorf sliders are the same, or do they have different tables depending on the price of the saw, like Hammer and Felder have different sliders? [blink]

Go with the machine   that  has  the closest  local supplier.
I have a hammer  panel saw.
Felder  have  X roll  and  they make a big  fuss  over  it, so I assume  they  have  patents.

Hello Carrara

Maybe you already got your answer by now.... but I recall when I visited a friend's shop and she showed her Altendorf to me and all the accompanying paperwork, that the pricelist showed various options that included different tables.

I watch Craigslist around here  (Washington DC area) just for fun, and in the past two years I have seen maybe ten Altendorfs for sale.  Too bad I don't have the space for one.  [big grin]

Altendorf 2...  that's an impressive looking machine.
Although, to accommodate that, I'd have to knock down most of my internal walls and sleep in a tent in the park...

I have local suppliers of both Felder AND Altendorf close to where I live  [cool]
Yeah I know about Felders X-roll, Ive got a Felder in my shop.
But Altendorf has a steady reputation! Thats why I wanted some opinions about their sliders and in particular the F25..

Maybe what you saw on that list was different lengths of the cross cut sled?
Ive got a 60sqm so I havnt got much space either hehe..  [embarassed]
