Table Saw


Asking anyone in the forum who can recommend a table saw. I am in the market for one. Brand etc, looking to purchase one that represents quality, money not really a factor. No plastic crap unless really worth while. Cheers,, Steve.

Re: Table Saw


Hey rustbucket, initially looking for one that sits in the factory but I think good to have it portable so it can be taken it on any site.

Re: Table Saw


A lot difference between a saw that sits in a shop and one you can take to a job site.

I do not have a Saw Stop. Provided link to answer your question.

Use the comparison function on the website to choose the saw that fits your needs best.

You’re going to have a hard time finding a portable “job site” saw that’s not plastic.

Re: Table Saw


You could always pair up a jobsite saw with one of the matched Rousseau saw stands.

Yeah I remember my dad's old "portable" table saw was all metal. I hated loading and unloading that saw. Must have been 50+lbs.

Re: Table Saw


Plastic portable tablesaws are disposable. They work great and can be easily replaced when they finally do break. You should get some mileage out of one that will make it worth it.

Re: Table Saw


I've never seen any decent brand tablesaw break.

Maybe the old clunky Deltas, but those were crap right out of the box. Even then you would get your money's worth before it fell apart.

Re: Table Saw


I'm happy with my makita. Before this one I had a Hitachi c2 (I think). That was pretty beefy for a portable, but the rail sucked

Every rail on a job site saw sucks.

The rack and pinion for DeWalt is the best one out there and it sucks compared to a fence on an industrial saw.

Sawstop sucks too. Not a fan.

No love for the Bosch 4000's? Yeah, it's big for a jobsite saw but that's what makes it so nice to actually use.

Re: Table Saw


I got a Bosch 10-Inch Worksite Table Saw two years ago and used it to build an entire kitchen full of cabinetry. I absolutely love it, and what I love most is the cart/stand. I'm a small-ish woman (~5'3"), but I can pull this saw out, set it up, use it and put it back without needing any help at all, which is worth a lot for those of us that are small-ish in stature. They sell the stand separately and other saws can fit on it, but the best value at the time I got it was buying both together.
