: There have been a few folks here asking about Steel City Table saws.
: Tools of the trade reviewed the 35601 along with 7 others:
: FWIW, they ranked it below a Jet, Grizzly, and a Dewalt
A few comments:
a) they tested hybrid saws. Most of the Steel City line
is industrial grade stuff (cabinet saws, etc.).
b) they gave the DeWalt a high grade partially based on it being the
most portable saw, which I find a bit odd in a review which otherwise
based its comments on how the saws behaved in a factory production
c) All the saws were run on 110, althouygh most/all could have been
run on 220.
d) The test of 'power' was pretty subjective -- running poplar
boards through by hand but pushing them as hard as possible, and
timing the results. Seems to me if you're doing production
runs where speed is essential, this is the wrong type of saw to be using.
