Table saw opinions
While I realize this is a router forum, most if not all of you are well rounded wood workers and have a signifcant knowledge of the tools involved, which leads me to my problem.
Up until now I have been using a borrowed Craftsman contractor style table saw, circa 1978 based on the model and serial number. While it does great at ripping large sheet goods, precision is not its strong suit, in fact precision and it simply don't belong in the same sentence.
So what I would like from some of you are your opinions on different hybrid table saws that are under $1000, have a self squaring fence because the fence on the craftsman is worthless, and are a hybrid design because it must sit flat against the wall in order for me to still be able to get my truck in the garage on the off chance that I actually get it clean enough to do so. Finally they must be able to run off of 110v power, as I don't have a 220v outlet in the garage yet....
Right now the two I have spent the most time looking at are the JET and the Delta 10" models. I was able to see the delta in person down at woodcraft where I find myself spending a large amount of my lunch hours these days and I like the way the Delta feels. Are there any other brands I should be looking at, or any specific places I should be searching. My idea is to keep it under $1000 with shipping/tax etc all total.
There is no problem currently known to man that cannot be solved with the proper amount and correct application of high explosives
