I want to build a shop that is free of fine dust. I don’t want to add to the noisy activity of woodworking buy getting tools that make more noise than they should. Thus, I’m going to purchase a Pro Cabinet TS

Hate to be a wet blanket but it ain’t gonna happen. You can reduce the (fine) dust but any honest woodworker is going to admit that the only dust free shops are those in Fine Woodworking magazine.

As for noise, cabinet saws are noisy too, maybe somewhat quieter than a contractor’s saw but still noisy, depending of course what blade you are using.

SawStop won’t save your bacon on your bandsaw, jointer, planer . . . ie. more hype than real butt saver.
