Although I fully accept the value of decent kit, I can't really justify (to senior management) splurging too much on this but I'd like to get something that does the job. I also don't have the space for anything too exotic (at least not without a major re-structure of the garage) and, realistically, it's not something I'll use every day.
A lot of the cheaper ones get pretty poor reviews, mostly due to poor alignment but I wonder if that's because people (including me) don't know how to adjust them. So:
1 Can anyone recommend something in the 'not too outrageous' price range? I was looking at this one: http://www.axminster.co.uk/jet-jts-10-bench-top-saw-bench Which seems reasonable, but someone may be able to confirm that or know different.
2 Given the point about adjustment/set-up, is there any way of telling whether a given saw is readily 'setupable' before buying? (in other words, what should there be to adjust to get things square).
