    In the sense of it your correct.. you get what you pay for… unfortunately alot of things are exasperated in price… way to much…

    I bought that Skil based on your recommendation AND got it for $199. LOVE IT.

    I have the 8.25" saw just like that one. I love it so much.

    Corded are better than the cordless. The corded one will stop or stall when pushing thick dense wood

    Table saws have come a long way (as have most tools) my Skil was around $250, and while much louder than the cabinet maker SawStop at work, it still gets the job done.

    That Dewalt 8-1/4 “ saw also won’t accept a dado stack. The 10” Dewalt does. That was the deciding factor for me. Just bought it two weeks ago. Table was flat out of the box, the blade was at 90 degrees to the table – just had to adjust the indicator. The fence moves back and forth beautifully, but it’s not exactly 90 degrees to the table. It’s 89.6 per my digital angle finder and that can’t be adjusted. Since I work mainly with 3/4” stock I don’t think that’s a big issue since the angle down low to the table is fine.

    I have the Dewalt, only downside is that it sounds like it’s about to take down the whole house.

    I have the Milwaukee 8 1/4 and I have mixed emotions. The battery doesn’t last long so if I have a lot of work I have to wait for the charge and it doesn’t go 45 easily I have to push it and force it to 45 then lock it down. Also, when it’s at 45 it isn’t parallel to the fence. It’s parallel at 90 but not 45

  13. Ewetoob Blowzdogg on June 17, 2023 at 1:55 pm

    I went with the Dewalt because it’s the ONLY jobsite table saw (that I know of) that also accepts a dado blade

    For up and coming wood workers that are just starting out.
    I highly recommend getting the Newest Craftsmen table saw ( there is two different types a 10" and a smaller job site saw that I haven’t used)….The fence is honestly really good. No, it doesn’t have a rack and pinion fence unfortunately but I found it to be surprisingly good!!! I have used it to make precise cuts ( I’ve made custom thresholds, custom door framing, custom window framing for interior finished grade work)….
    I wish I could post pictures on her for all to see.
    You can always upgrade to the DeWalt table saw, or Skil Saw table saws…
    Also, believe it or not, I’ve used the "Dun Dun Dun"….the Blasphemous Harbor freight Hercules job site table saw as well!!! It was just as good as the DeWalt table saw!!!!!!!

    I’m broke. I was gonna get a ryobi 10” table saw. Most of my projects are with 1x and pickets. So I think I’ll get by for a while.

  16. Michael Anderson on June 17, 2023 at 1:57 pm

    I have that dewalt with the 8 1/4 blade. But it was what was in my budget at the time. And I have been making it work for 2 years now. And love it as I never have had issues with the fence getting out of wack.

  17. Richard Carlson on June 17, 2023 at 1:59 pm

    The small contractor saws all work great and dont have the cast iron top that rust so thats good. Plus light weight. Bosch is my favorite one, which my dad has. I have a grizzly 5hp now for my shop which is the best saw i have ever had but it is just for the shop. I want to try out the rigid portable saw next to give that a spin. Currently have the 10" dewalt with an 8 1/4 blade. Had it for 10 years and is the only one still working that i bought in the past.

    I’m a amateur woodworker. Got the DeWalt 10in. Thought in the beginning that I was overdoing it but after improving my skills I’m glad I got it. Not having a bandsaw and a jointer, the 10in blade has helped to compensate with that.

    Video is waaay too short. Too little information.

    DeWalt 10" on sale is tempting

  21. Tammy Vinas on June 17, 2023 at 2:09 pm

    Great, thanks!

  22. Brett S on June 17, 2023 at 2:13 pm

    If the fence isn’t square to the blade your cuts are off. More critically, though, you can pinch your work and get kickback injuring you and/or damaging your shop.

    I run a grizzly cabinet saw in my shop and about 2 months ago I had a catastrophic failure with the blade height adjust. It was messed up pretty bad and I was buried in work. I need a replacement, quick. So I ran down to Lowe’s and picked up the Delta 10 inch table saw. Man I was shocked how good that saw was for $700. It’s still the main saw for my shop for the time being. Once I’m not so busy I’m gonna get a Harvey and build a new out feed table for it and have the delta as a backup/dato saw. The grizzly is being used as a table currently.
