I am in the near future going to purchase a new table saw.I have limited
space and was thinking of buying one of Sears cabinet saws.Can anyone
give advice on this subject. I have around $600.00 to spend.
I too have the 1023S and love it. However, it costs about 50% more than
the OP mentioned. Your suggestion about their other saws is a good one.
Their G0444 and G0444Z are very nice contractor's saws. They have
left-tilt models coming out in January. One thing to keep in mind is
that the G0444Z and presumably its left-tilt cousin draw 24 amps on
110v. Otherwise, his shop would need 220 (240). Another consideration
is their declared price increase in January. Get em now!
In the price range mentioned, I really like the new Craftsmans as well
as the Ridgid (Home Depot). It seems like a pretty solid
contractor/hybrid that has some type of built in dust management. Its
worth looking at. Plus, it comes with a herc-u-lift mobile base
included. They usually have some sort of gift card included.
I would stay away from Lowe's in-house brand Tradesman. (I think that
is the name)
I think that newer Deltas are overpriced and not as good as their name
implies. However, there are discussion threads regarding their newish
cabinet saw on sale at Rockler that looks pretty reasonable and decent.
Also, this Saturday, Woodcraft is discounting Delta and Porter-Cable
products 10%. The unisaw is still pretty nice, but pricey and not
necessarily space saving, depending on options.
Good luck finding your saw Tony. I'm on my third. I think that I will
have it for a long time to come. I'm still eyeing up others when they
Hi Eric, I also look over new saws when they come out. If my wife is with
me, she says "Why are you looking at that? You have a new one at home"
Parts-Area or neighborhood "What's he
doin' in these parts"?
