The movement is from front to back, and it...

Where to start? Advice for a beginner... - 16 replies

I’m currently on vacation visiting my family back in VA and I received some nice goodies from my Dad. My uncle was an avid wood carver specializing in ducks and other wildlife.

Hey guys, I’m researching table saws and thought I would join here and see if I could get some solid advice on what type of saw would best suit me.
