Any advice on this table saw? It's $600 at Home Depot and I'm close to
buying it. Please don't recommend anything higher as it took me a long time
to get to this point. I'm just a poor boomer who is reentering the hobby.
I've looked at it. It seems decent for the price. If they have one set
up, give especialxy scrutiny to the fence. It seemed iffy to me.
The killer for me was that the motor was 115vac only, according to the
nameplate, and my experience is that induction motors are much happier
running at 230.
OTOH, my budget is probably only gonna allow me a BT3100, so . . .
Welcome back fellow boomer...
Since it's a new offering. I'll bet you don't get much feedback from real
owners. My nickle would say to take your $600 and spend it on a Jet or
Delta contractor's saw - something more tried n' true.
I bought one, happy so far. It's miles ahead of the one it replaced that HD
used to sell at the same price. They put a lot of thought into this
machine, from where the on/off switch is mounted, to making the base larger
to bring the adjustment wheels forward, and the Hercu-lift mobile base works
fine, the fence is very good, IMO. I also have a Shopsmith, so this table
saw seems like an aircraft carrier.
