I have a delta 10” contractors saw with a biesmeyer fence. My dream saw was a 14” table saw and i have now found it. I found a rockwell delta 34-395 so now it is trying to restore the saw and sell the 10” saw to make some room.

3 HP 1987 Delta Unisaw I bought new then and have run miles of material through without a hitch. I upgraded with a Biesemeyer fence and saw cabinets and outfeed table a couple of years ago which enhanced it immensely.

My first table saw was a skill saw fastened to the bottom of a piece of plywood and a t-square fence back in 1970 and then a rusty old Craftsman tilt top saw that I cleaned up and used for many years and gave away when I was able to get the Unisaw.

I would probably buy the top of the line Saw-stop if I were to replace this saw.

Ridgid 4512 (replaced a Crafstman 90’s vintage Emerson model last year, mostly because I wanted to build some more jigs and upgrade the fence on the craftsman)

When I looked at fences and the time and effort of building some new jigs, I chose to just get a new saw. Have been really happy with how it performs, but did lose it for a month for a new motor & pully. Don’t have alignment issues noted or maybe I just don’t build that closely. Other reason I upgraded was because I wanted to start building some nicer pieces.

Key for me is mobility as I have one side of a large two car garage for a shop that I share with a golf cart.

I have a Delta 36-L336 Unisaw with the 3HP motor and 36 inch fence. I’ve owned it for about 3 years and could not wish for a better table saw. It is powerful and precise and I still get a kick out of hearing the “Thunk whoooosh!” sound when it starts. I am also proud of the fact that it is made in America.

Spee-D-Kut. It’s an old cast iron thing with a 1 horse motor, and looks roughly like the newer junk contractor portable saws in terms of size…but isn’t junk at all. It has a dead-flat table and does what I need. I bought it from Loren.

Hey Loren, you still have that linotype cutter?!? I wish I had room for that critter, I’d’ve bought that for sure!

@AtomJack I do still have the linotype saw – I’ve found a place
for it and am keeping it for now. There is another linotype saw
I found for sale in Los Angeles though, a Hammond with a sliding table,
if you’re interested.

I just noticed that somehow my text for my reply got mangled. Probably spell check on my phone… I meant to say Ryobi BT3100-1. I have it fully loaded with a Shark Guard, Wide Table, belly pan dust colleciton, a vast array of throat plates, router table extension etc…

My dream saw would be a SawStop 3HP PCS with the 52” rip fence a bench dog router wing extension, and a sliding miter table…

I know Ryobi gets no respect, and for the most part, I can agree, but the BT3×00 series saws are pretty unique… I am very happy with this machine, but would like a little more mass and the brake feature of the Saw Stop… I am not willing to do without the riving knife though. I have had a saw with a splitter previously, and the riving knife, especially the way the Shark Guard and Shark Knife are set up, have saved my skin more than once…

Have a ShopSmith Model V from 1978. Just upgraded to a Grizzly 0691 last year and that’ll do me the rest of my life. Want a MLCS router table extension for the left side w/power lifter and Porter cable 890/690 router for it. Have Craftsman Super Router of the 70’s and a Freud Plunge FV2200, but neither will work with most lifters.

I have a Craftsman “Professional”, not sure of the model, but it is a “Hybrid” saw. Looks very similar to some of the Delta Unisaws I have seen, and has a Biesmeyer fence. I love it, extremely accurate and only requires 110 so no fancy power required which is great for a small shop. Bought it new about 7 or 8 years ago for less than 1000.00. I does lack the power of a larger HP machine obviously due to the 110 V motor but that could be easily upgraded.

Dream saw? Better than what I have and the shop and power to run it, and if I say I am an illegal alien it will all be paid for. Oh yea, someone to pay the electric bills too.

A Craftsman 9” bench saw circa 1972. Still works perfectly. A dream saw would be a New Powermattic 62 for $40 delivered.

Until then, my Craftsman will be fine.

Ridgid 3650 and a Sears direct drive contractor saw.

My dream saw ? Well, the 3650 is large for my small shop, with the 60”+ rails and motor hanging off the back.

No particular saw, but it would be a cabinet saw that has a smaller footprint and good
dust collection.
