I’m not nearly as experienced as most on this site, but I’ll give you my two cents worth and hope it helps. The two most used power tools I have in my shop are a Bosch 4100 table saw from Lowes.(about $600.-650.) and a Dewalt planer. I bought the TS to build a cedar fence around my house, and after adding an Incra miter 1000HD (measures to .10 degree) I am able to use for more intricate woodworking. For a contractor grade saw, I love it. Seems to have plenty of power and the fence is pretty good – and dont skimp when buyng a blade, you’ll regret it. I use the planer alot more than i thought I would. I couldn’t get along without it. The TS, planer, and Incra miter probably come out to close to $1000. And keep a patient, close eye on Craig’s list, picked up a great Delta drill press that way.
