Woodworkers of Metafiler: give me your table saw recommendations.
I am starting to do some woodworking and am looking to acquire a table saw. I read the reviews on this older question
, but it's a few years old and many of the model numbers seem to have changed since then.
The projects I'm looking at dovetail (har!) with beekeeping, so small-ish wooden boxes, rabbets and box-joints. Most of the plans I'm looking at require dado cuts and ripping small boards into smaller boards (like cutting 1x2 down to 1x1.33...the bees can be particular).
The garage shop is small, so something on wheels would be good. 120V power is also something of a requirement.
The reviews of this one by Sears
seem pretty good. At the other end of the spectrum (costwise) is this Bosch 4100
, which features ecstatic user reviews and an adjustable riving knife. I just watched a video on riving knives, and I think I really want that feature.
