I check mybtable saw so many times everytime I rip a filler for cabinets. The blade moves a 1/16 to 1/8 on the motor. Causing not a perfect rip
Any ideas
Or Time for a new one should I go with a Dewalt or Bosch saw

Thanks

Yep---motor bearing is shot----Size does matter---I like the DeWalt one---compact--tough enough and accurate--

I need small because of the number of tools I pack around.

I also beat the heck out of things and that one has held up well.

When I first started my business I bought a $199 craftsman table saw. I Had to clamp the fence and measure to make sure it was square for every different cut and also started up so hard the blade would warp enough momentarily to nick the insert. Finally dropped the $600 on the bosch with the gravity rise stand and couldn't be happier (been a year or two).

The old cast iron belt drive Craftsmans were (and still are) work horses. they were heavy and the fences were terrible, but you could get a really good cut off of them, and they weren't too bad to spruce up..
