So I think I might want to be a cabinetmaker, but I'm really just a
construction laborer right now. Kind of sucks but I really like
working with my hands and my wood so I figure why not try to get paid
for your efforts? In any event, I had a whole persuasive argument
prepared on the relative benefits of autonomy but now I've forgotten
it in favor of something unknown but less memorable.
Maybe one of those monster straight line rip saws would be best. I
did just crack 200 pounds here on earth.
What I think I want is a saw that can be tuned to do fine work, but
will eventually be relegated to field work - ie. ripping hardwood
flooring to width when needed. I understand that it's likely to need
frequent attention, but I figure it's a good learning tool in that
I'll be forced to learn how to maintain it. Which will make it that
much more fun to graduate to a cabinet saw, and eventually dedicated
I'd like to keep cost under $400, but again, it's value that's
So you need a portable? Maybe if you can narrow it down to which class of
table saw you are considering and ask about a few specific models everyone
will be able to give you more focused advise.
