Update Delta finally made contact with me!!!!!!! I was suprised when I answered the phone and the caller said he was from Delta, seen as it was in the evening outside of normal business hours. He agreed that they have been having some problems, but they are trying to get everything ironed out.He agreed that evrything shoild have been there as one shipment. I didn’t mean for it to sound like I figured the mobile base is part of the saw package. It was added as a option, my point is n...

Ridgid R4511 10 in. Granite Top Table Saw

To be fair , I was waiting to write this review after I tackled the last (and only) issue I’ve had with this saw as to give a proper review of it’s operation, and not limited by any aspect of missing/malfunctioning parts out-of-the-box. my ‘limitation’ was that the fence had a slight disposition issue once locked all the way down (was fine if locked half way – it would stay put and stay on the mark – but if the lock handle was pushed further, it would skew ...

Rigid 2410LS

Rigid 2410LS

I purchased the Rigid 2410LS saw from Home Depot yesterday. The saw was retailing for $499 and after tax it came out to $530. I managed to fit the entire unit in the back seat of my 99 Lincoln Town Car by taking it out of the carton. I stuffed the packaging materials in the trunk and slid the saw in the back seat. It was easy enough to lift right in, a bit of a tight fit but compact enough to get in there. That in itself impressed me. I got it home and before I unwrapped the plastic, I too...

My "Almost" Dream Table Saw

My "Almost" Dream Table Saw

06-14-2009 03:05 AM by Lenny | 37 comments »

I have been woodworking without a table saw (TS) for nearly 30 years; using a radial arm saw as the workhorse of my tools. I never had the room for a table saw when I worked out of my 8’X11’ basement shop. In 2007 I became the happy owner of a dedicated shop, attached to my garage. It is only 8’x18’ but it has an 8’ ceiling and is almost double the space I had. I plan to retire from my job of 32+ years next July and planned to use the money I will receive for my unused v...

Great Saw, but Limitations

Great Saw, but Limitations

06-07-2009 05:06 AM by John | 14 comments »

Since there is no Review posted on this site for this saw, I’ll be the first. The first thing someone should understand is, it’s NOT a Cabinet Saw. If you can live with the limitations of a Contractor Saw, it’s actually a great saw. My first Powermatic 64A held up great for about 10 years until I sold it. You can see it in my pictures of my old workshop. I only sold it cause I needed the money and employment was pretty scarce at the time. There are 6 main points that I will ...

Contractors Saw

Contractors Saw

05-17-2009 05:10 AM by Wingstress | 39 comments »

I just bought a SawStop two weeks ago. I bought the “contractors” saw instead of the cabinet saw. I put contractors in quotes because it still weighs over 300 lbs. I got the cast iron wings instead of the aluminum ones with a 36-inch fence, extension table, mobil base, dado cartridge, dado brake, for about $2300. Its the same exact table dimensions you get with the cabinet saw, but between $1000-$2000 cheaper. I would seriously look into the contractors saw. Really I don’t see any reason to g...

Well I’ve had the saw for almost 6 months now so I thought that it was finally time to get around to the review.I have been saving for my “first” table saw for several years now and finally had the money to get almost any one that I wanted. My first inclination was to go with a Powermatic. For the most part I have seen very few negatives when reading reviews from other buyers/ owners. The big issue was the $$$ even though I had saved enough. The question was go with the Powe...

Review of the Sawstop Professional Cabinet Saw

Review of the Sawstop Professional Cabinet Saw

05-07-2009 04:17 AM by Scott Bryan | 79 comments »

Intro: The saw is a 3hp, 585 pound monster. I purchased the 52” fence, hydraulic mobile base and extension table. Setting it up is definately a two person job (although I did it alone with help from my wife only in setting up the front rail). I did get help in lifting it onto the mobile base, however, as this is the only way to mount it to the base. The instructions call for help in setting the saw upright since the base cabinet weighs 200+ pounds. I was able to do it alone b...
