300 dollar sears special in the basement and a AMF dewalt radial in the garage. I move the table saw to the garage in summer. I wish it had a better fence that stayed in place tighter. I would spend more time looking for a better one used next time i buy one. I have seen lots of very nice shop grade saws for cheap lately.

I've got an old craftman. I plan on upgrading the fence sometime so I can do bigger boxes

haha no doubt, i tryed the makita, but its not that great, too much sawdust gets caught up underneath and jams the saw blade when trying to cut angles, dewalt is not bad, sill prefer the bosch, ryobe i found way too loud

but thats just my 2 cents

first you have to decide if you want portable or not. I went with the Ryobi portable. Very nice saw for the $$$.

Forged steel top, belt driven.

Mine kinda looks like this:

Except mine is in much better shape. :laugh:


It's a beast, though. I only spent $150, and, as NEB said, it's heavvyyy. It slipped out of my brother's hands as we were taking it out of his truck's bed, and it carved straight through the bed liner to the metal.

I am having problems with the fence, though. It's not staying straight for whatever reason. I need to get it calibrated f'sho.
