My table saw was made by my wife’s grandfather.

The only drawback is that it only has one miter slot and the blade can’t tilt

That’s a well designed machine. I only wish I could have known him and seen all his other tools.

Looks very well made, kudos to your wife’s grandad. You can probably make angle cuts by using jigs to present the workpiece to the blade at the correct angle.
