Still looking for a entry level saw. I see that Home Depot has the BTS20
for approx $200. I know that this is not a great saw and probably not a
terrible one. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who actually has
used one. I will be buying a saw for small home projects and don't need a
big "good contractor" saw. On the other hand I would like to get the most
bang for the buck in the $200-300 price range. Looked at the Delta TS300
which I really liked but I don't have the room for it. I also checked out
the Hitachi C10RA2 from Lowes ($300) but don't like the cheap miter slot
setup. So...... any comments appreciated.
I used one on and off for a few months that a fellow finish carpenter had
purchased and it seemed to hold up pretty well. He also let a few other job
site idiots use it and they couldn't seem to wreck it, despite all their
attempts. I don't remember any real drawbacks to the unit. Fence seemed
pretty nice. Onboard storage for miter gauge and fence IIRC. Big table too.
If you're half-assed serious, you should try to buy a little nicer model.
There's nicer one's out there for a little more $$$.
Russ..... If you're half-assed serious, you should try to buy a little nicer

Seeing the Ryobi is selling for $200 what nicer ones would you say are
available for a "little more money-say $100"?
