3. SawStop PCS175TGP236 Table Saw

  • (37 Points)

I also cut some 1/4in birch plywood and it worked great. For months i could not decide between the g690 and this one. So with such a glowing review why only four stars. Cast iron table is very nice and heavy and solid. I absolutely love the rip fence.

4. Shop Fox W1837 Table Saw

  • (28 Points)

The quality was apparent from the first bolt. Includes stamped steel wings for sides--prefer cast iron. This is my second Shop Fox table saw and I'm a happy customer. The major problem I had was assembling the saw on the stand. That is supposed to further cut down on vibration.

The Grizzly Table saws are top of the line. You need a 17mm a 13mm and others. The rip fence is very accurate and has a rack gear operation. I can see why this make is considered the Cadillac of saws. Oak, maple, even had to cut some soaking wet Ponderosa pine.

The Jet Table saws are top of the line. For months i could not decide between the g690 and this one. So I've had the new Jet in use for almost two months now. I can see why this make is considered the Cadillac of saws. The block isn't mentioned in the assembly instructions.

Took me 5 times longer than suggested. It's durable plastic, but still plastic. The motor has more than enough power for my needs. Overall its an ok saw for what it is. Once finished, it is an awesome saw.

Took me 5 times longer than suggested. The fence is good but not great as others have noted. For the money this is an outstanding value. One thing, it's so easy to just pick up. The block isn't mentioned in the assembly instructions.

I also cut some 1/4in birch plywood and it worked great. I expected a Powermatic made tool for the premium price I paid. Ok, now for a slightly more in depth review. The major problem I had was assembling the saw on the stand. Easy assembly and little to no adjustments necessary.

I have found the rip fence gauge to be spot on accurate. It still wasn't dead after that. The saw itself works like a charm. Overall its an ok saw for what it is. Loud and dusty, sure, but that is expected.
