The book of the best-selling sliding table saw in the world.
Altendorf celebrated its centenary year in 2006.
We decided this presented the ideal opportunity to conduct a thorough re-investigation of the history of the company and its product, the sliding table saw. The result of the project was a whole book, no less: "The Saw" recounts the story of a small company's rise to become the global market leader, explaining how it survived two world wars and conquered new markets and telling of lives lived with conviction and of the people, friendships, risks and triumphs encountered along the way. Join us on a journey through 100 years of exciting German industrial and social history, illustrated with a wealth of previously unpublished images and photos, and find out why over 130,000 users – the great majority of them carpenters, cabinet-makers and joiners – swear by the Altendorf sliding table saw and play their part in keeping the Altendorf legend alive and cutting in the industry today.
