Default Left Tilt / Right Tilt

I have been away from the forums for several months and know this subject has been discussed. I live about 25 miles from Grizzly in Bellingham and want to buy a Contractor's Table Saw. Their catalogue only shows Left Tilt saws. Can someone share an opinion before I write to them? I have purchased many items from Grizzly and their support is great. Thanks -Derek

With a left tilt you would not have to move the fence to the other side of the blade for a safer operation. You can use the right side measurement & table length for support of wider pieces as in normal use. You do not want to trap your material between the blade & the fence. The only place for the material to go is right back at you. The material gets pinched between the blade, fence, & tabletop. You want to tilt the blade away from the fence for a safer miter cut. Most table saws have more table to the right of the blade which allows wider cuts.

Have a nice & safe day!
