Bruce the first thing you need to decide when buying a table saw is "what am I going to do with this saw?"Is it week-end projects or building entertainment centers. Then decide how much are you willing to spend . The numbers can be out of this world . I would hate to think that you would spend alot of money on atable saw usually cause of the name to make a few bird houses and mail boxes.But always look into the tools accuracy and availability to buy any accesories esp. the fence, HP of the motor, etc. Drop me a line let me know what you decided.
