Ralph, I decided there were tools I wanted in my shop and I made provisions for those from the beginning. I installed a 100 amp panel with the spaces for my tools. I would recommend doing that from the begining. I planned for the maximum size tools I might want and installed those circuits as needed. I had the spaces designated.
I have gotten by with a cheaper Sears table saw for 30+ years. I have always felt that learning to use the tool and doing the best is important. If you have a better saw you can’t get sloppy. I had given up on ever owning a “better saw” because they don’t show up for sale in my part of the country. I went to an auction about a month ago and I bought a 5hp Delta Unisaw for $180. It is a 3 phase but I feel I can overcome that little deal. Even if I decide to replace the motor I got a good deal on the saw. Don’t give up on owning a big name expensive saw.
