I plan to buy my husband a new table saw for his birthday in a couple of weeks. I'll let him pick it out himself (that's half the fun), but I want to do a little research ahead of time. His current saw was one of his first shop purchases 21 years ago. Over the years his shop has grown in quantity and quality, but he still has the Craftsman Table Saw he bought when we were newly married. The thing he complains about most is the unsturdy table and crappy fence.
What would be a good step up for him? He likes to build things for us around the house. Construction projects, closet storage, cabinets, and occasionally furniture. He doesn't require top of the line professional .... but wants something sturdy with a good accurate fence.
Looking through recent posts I see talk about a Delta cabinet saw .... that looks more expensive than I was expecting. Can I get something good for $1000 or less?
