With a bit of searching and luck, you can get a decent used contractor saw for a good price. I have a Delta that I bought for $150, barely used. It isnít perfect, the fence needed adjustments, the miter gauge is junk, the stock throat plate has a lot of play and the top is aluminum, but for the price it does exactly what I expect it to do. Put in a thin kerf Diablo 40T ATB blade, added UHMW panels to the fence, waxed the table and the T-tracks, now it works like it should. All is left is to make a set of inserts and itíll be a lot of saw for what I paid for it.
