Uffitze, I dont have a requirement to buy the table saw right now. I can wait to see if I can find a sale on the Delta models. Im only concerned that the deal on the 21833 wont last long.

I have had the same experience as Jim and while craftsman hand tools last the items with moving parts have generally let me down. While the 21833 says contractors saw, it really is in the hybrid category priced as a contractors saw.

The Ridgid sounds attractive with the granite top, but trying to get one is difficult. And having bought difficult items, when it comes time to buy a spare part its going to be that much more difficult and I may end up with having to replace the item.

I plan on getting a Jointer and Planer as they are obvious tools required to ensure your pieces are flat. At this time I will get the table saw as I can learn how to do joint types on softwoods as well as use the table saw to build storage and workshop items that can have imperfections.

Also, as for the Grizzly, according to the grizzly website they removed the Hybrid that had several good reviews. They now have the G0715P now listed on the site. This is new and as of last week they did not have any Hybrids listed. There are no reviews of this model so it is an unknown at this time.
