Sorry guys. Yes, I am still here. I was off for a day or two working around the house on some remodeling projects. Thank you all very much for your comments and insight. My shed is the only place I have to work my other hobby (HO scale trains) occupies the basement. Plus I live in a half double house So the noise from saws and other woodworking machines might upset the neighbors. I would love to have a larger shed or better yet a garage but my small yard and even smaller pocket book prohibit that right now. I do have an older model portable Black and Decker tablesaw that was given to me by my parents when they sold there house but its a major POS. When I turn it on I can watch the blade wobble, the fence is really bad and one of the stamped steel wrenches needed to change the blade broke. I am really just starting out in a woodworking hobby I am not new to woodworking and have build some stuff using the tools I have and loved wood shop in highschool. I would like to set up my shed as a small woodworking shop. I know I will not be able to get huge machines in there, but I do know that the TS is the heart of the wood shop. I was just looking for opinions on which type of saw you would go with if it was you and If you would sacrifice shop space for saw quaility.
