Good saw if space is tight or you need portability

Good saw if space is tight or you need portability

12-04-2008 09:44 PM by ferstler | 6 comments »

I read a review of another Ryobi table saw elsewhere on this site and the owner was not happy with it at all. He basically criticized the small size of the saw and the lack of quality in the fence. Well, we have to remember that saws of that kind are low-priced items, built for use in tight spaces and for owners (or woodworking dabblers) on strict budgets. The reviewed saw was different from the BTS20 reviewed here, but it is possible that the fences for each unit were the same, or at leas...

worked the saw hard for 2 years

worked the saw hard for 2 years

11-12-2008 07:43 PM by Todd McDonald "2 Bored Saws" | 2 comments »

I bought that same saw (Hitachi) two years ago, I have worked it hard cutting 3×3x8’ oak up into 1×1x8’ then into 1×1x5 inches, it has never quit me. I threw that plastic dust collection pan in the trash, and make my own that fits a 4” duct. I am about to buy another one. This saw has made me alot of money. I don’t use it every day, but every other day I work the crap out of it. I am not a pro (not close) just a extra money type a job. All my cuts ...

Bosch Table Saw

Bosch Table Saw

09-16-2008 03:34 AM by Tony Z | 26 comments »

This saw is great. I needed a portable saw that was accurate and this fit the bill. All I can say is BUY THIS SAW if you are in the market for something portable. It has everything you want in a table saw. Dust collection is good with a shop vac and I like that the miter gauge is full size and not a ‘mini’ one that come with most portable saws. The fence is aluminum with built in T-track which is very nice. It’s quiet and has a soft-start. I was especially impressed with t...

Nice Saw

I bought a Steel City 35670 tablesaw a couple of weeks ago and have been able to play with it some. Here are a few of my thoughts. PackagingI picked up the saw at Woodcraft in a small pickup truck. They loaded with a forklift as it is over 400 pounds. There were also a couple of other boxes that contained the fence. When I got it home, four people where able to slide it back and lower it to the ground. I then took off the cardboard and the found a square channel welded steel frame ins...

For the money... not bad... but not great, either

For the money... not bad... but not great, either

08-14-2008 06:51 PM by ryno101 | 8 comments »

So let me start by saying that this is the first major tool purchase (in excess of $150) that I have made, and while overall I’m satisfied, there are enough problems to warrant a second thought for a first table saw. If I could have given 3 1/2 stars, I would have… but I’ll settle for 4, since it’s not quite a 3 star tool. I ended up getting this on Amazon, free shipping, with a promo including an outfeed roller, and the whole package was $299. For the money, th...

Grizzly G0478 2 HP Hybrid Cabinet Saw Review

Grizzly G0478 2 HP Hybrid Cabinet Saw Review

07-18-2008 03:47 PM by Timber4fun | 17 comments »

Introduction – After 16 years of using a Craftsman contractor-style table saw, I decided to investigate and upgrade to a cabinet saw. My priorities included dust collection, accurate fence, performance, accurate/efficient cuts, quality components, functionality, size, and price. I am a no nonsense type of person. I really don’t want a bunch of fancy marketing features that tend to break in the first 5 years. Give me a good solid tool and I am happy. The Grizzly G0478 2 HP Hybrid Cabinet ...

A test of my patience leads to a very satisfying outcome.

I know this is already listed under the tablesaw reviews but the previous ‘review’ wasn’t really a review. I’ll do my best to give you my thoughts on this. This review is from a perspective of ‘once the machine is put together’. Complaints are at the end. Power – SUPERB! Everything just melts as it goes through this thing (if you know what I mean). I came from a Ridgid TS2400 (I think that was the number). Granted – this isn’t a...

5 Stars for the Application! -1 for limitations when it comes to fine work

5 Stars for the Application! -1 for limitations when it comes to fine work

06-16-2008 04:15 AM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

I definitely give this one 5 stars, but this is specific of the application – it being portable. If I was comparing it with other Hybrid saws, than this one doesn’t really compare when it comes to power. That being said. I was shopping for a table saw, after many years of working with a circular saw, and a straight edge – for me – it was time to get a setup for repetitive cuts that would be easier, and less time consuming (not to mention more precise, as the machine...

So it began by ordering it off line. I was kinda nervous about getting a hybrid, but if i didn’t spend the money i had right then …. my car would have broken down or some mysterious thing would have happen that would have taken all my money. So as i’m patiently waiting like a child before Christmas pacing back and forth for this saw to arrive… The saw finally arrives via Saia Motor transportation at about 7:05 pm …. the driver had a long day, he said, as i talk...

Hitachi C10FL Hybrid Table Saw - Awesome saw for the money

Hitachi C10FL Hybrid Table Saw - Awesome saw for the money

06-03-2008 05:56 AM by Weekend_Carpenter | 13 comments »

I just bought this saw ($499 – 15%(Promo) – 10% (coupon) -$100 (gift card thru MIR), and I love it. This is my second table saw, and I am far from a professional woodworker (that is why I bought a $500 TS ;), and not a $1000+ Jet table saw). I have used it with pine and cedar in the month that I have had it. It cut great through both, even when using the dado blade. This saw is not perfect, but it is a lot better than the others in the same price range. Here are the pros, and cons (and no I d...
