Steel City is a renamed and badged Craftsman. They are both made in the same factory, only difference is the top and paint colors. I had a Craftsman and quickly sold it. The fence was crap, would not hold any adjustments. If I were to buy a new saw, which I wont, I would look at Powermatic or possibly the new unisaw. A good used saw may not be out of the question either. There are a lot of good deals to be had on CL as well as other online auction sites. I am partial to the old machines and will never go back. You should be able to pick up a decent PM or unisaw for well under your max budget and with a little elbow grease and time have a much better saw than you can buy new today
