Default New table saw with router table

Hi,

Just getting up to speed and trying to make sure I get the best equipment for the money and use it correctly.

I just got a Sears 21829 table saw with router table. That table saw is the clone of a BT3100 based upon my research but with the router table and fold up stand.

So, equipment wise I am close to good to go, now for the human side...

Oh, I am relatively proficient with a miter saw (crown molding, landscape work) but want MORE! I love that feeling after making something and seeing it finished...

Is the BT3100 the ryobi with the sliding table section?

Hello KVM, Welcome to the forum. I have the BT3000 table saw with router table. I can tell You that if your's is as good as mine, it will do very accurate work. The sliding miter table will make repeatedly accurate cuts. I love mine. Your saw is a later model of the BT3000, and I am not sure what the updates are. The saw does everything well but it isn't meant to be a heavy duty saw. If You are making boxes, or cabinets, It is a great saw. It You are cutting 4x4's, Then You will not get alone with it. Have fun, and I am sure that You will get different reports from those who do, and those who don't like the saw. Make that You read the section that tells about alignment, encase it has anything in need of adjustment. When it is set rite, It will stay, as long as you treat it with standard every day work!

There is such a following of that saw that there is even a web site/forum about it.

Thanks everyone, yes the Craftsman 21829 is the model number and it comes with the sliding table and has a router table. As I understand it these were around a 100 bucks extra on the Bt3000 series. They made the difference. I relied heavily on the Bt3 forum for guidance and research kept coming back to the Ryobi, now only available as the Sears version. The Bt3 forum is what led me here. Thanks again, I'll probably lurk mostly for awhile...

Take care..
