Thanks for the input guys.

Regarding the contractor or hybrids, they are out of the question for the next year or two at least, not due to finances but space (and most likely lease) issues. Non-standard miter’s are not a big concern, as I enjoy homemade jig making.

One of the biggest draws was the belt-drive, am I wrong in thinking this will make a significant difference (mostly in noise and accuracy)? I also have a strong desire for something that can handle a dado stack, even if it’s just a 6’’ stack at 1/2’’ width.

I actually have seen the Porter Cable, and was quite interested, though even that may be a bit big for the space I’m working with. Would this be a significantly more powerful saw?
