I`m returning my Craftsman table saw to them. It is a 10 " bench top. With
tax it was $400.00. I want to buy another about $400.00 to $600.00. What
would you suggest in brands? I want something that I can at least fine
tune. Was not able to with the Craftsman.
I like the Grizz, but it should be know that for it to do as much as the
Rigid you need to up the price to $1023. that gets you the extensions and
mobile base..... and it does require a 30 amp (12ga) dedicated line....
It surprises me that you cannot fine tune your saw Patt. What do you mean
by fine tune? Are you talking about aligning the blade to precise parallel
with the miter slot or are you talking about very fine adjustments of the
fence? Either should be possible with any saw sold by Sears today.
Often the standard fence that comes with saws - especially in the $400 -
$600 price range, are not the greatest fences and you really want to look
closely at what you're getting for $600. Equally often, they are plenty
good enough saws if you invest in a good aftermarket fence system. I put a
Sears Align-A-Rip 24x24 on an old Craftsman Model 100 and I can get all of
the precision you could want for building furniture. Simply. The fence
system is dead accurate and easy to adjust. I paid under $200 for it. You
can look at lots of other fence systems for way more than that, but you will
have to decide if you're getting way more fence for way more money. All I
can tell you is that mine is great.
Is this the saw you bought?...
