In reply to Purchasing a table saw - Need suggestions by Terry Alexander on September 17th, 1997 10:00 AM [Go to top of thread]

Hi Terry,

Purchasing a tablesaw is probably the primary choice when setting up a woodworking shop. The tablesaw is so versatile, it would take volumes to list its capabilities. The Ryobi is a fine choice for an entry level machine, however I have a preference for a unit which is somewhat more substantial, such as the Craftsman contractor series tablesaws. For about the same investment, you will get a solid cast iron table
(vs. aluminum), a well made trunion ( the heart of the saw) and a belt driven motor/blade assembly. Of course, the higher your initial investment, the better the machine, but a well tuned basic 10" blade floor model contractors tablesaw will provide you with endless woodworking projects. On last reminder about safety...if you are new to using a table saw, or a veteran cutter, always familarize yourself with the particular unit you buy before "feeding the beast".

Enjoy !
