Well even though I am mighty late to this dance, I’ll throw my 2Ę out there anyway:
Sadly, I am in a small shop, so space is the most precious tool I have. Needing 10’ in front of and behind it plus an 8' wide channel to live in, a table saw requires more floor area than any other common woodworking tool, at the expense of all the other tools in the shop, including the workbench, which is certainly more important than the table saw.
Even if you put things on wheels, that space still has to be cleared in order to safely use the TS, and that’s a time-consuming pain to make happen. I came up against this and decided to sell my very nice Grizzly cabinet saw. I replaced it with a beautiful vintage Delta 40C radial arm saw, because those are designed to be installed against a wall and they’re more versatile than a TS.
I can hear the howls now, but a well tuned RAS is just as accurate as a TS, and more versatile without the need for all sorts of add-on jigs and aids. For anyone not able to accept that, then you might want to get caught up over at the Delphi Forums DeWalt Radial Arm Saw Forum.
Furthermore, when it comes to dealing with sheet goods and stock under 8/4 by anyone other than a large production shop, a track saw is unbeatable. I have a Makita that can be had for $475 from Amazon, and it does double duty as a jointer for stock up to 8/4. The track saw is basically a circular saw running on a special track, so it is light, portable, and can cut unlimited lengths.
The track saw is my recommendation, preceded by the bench and followed by a quality bandsaw. I’m probably an iconoclast, but that’s what I have and I can do more with that in less space than a TS.
