Hey guys. I’m new to the forum here. I’m looking to purchase a table saw. On a $1500 budget. I’ve been looking at these. Let me know what you think.

Rockwell

Powermatic 12in Model 71

I’d like to go take a look but quite frankly I’m not sure what to look for. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

James

either one would be a nice grab.

The pm is left tilt if that matters to you

You will want to put a biese fence on it , at that price no need to cheap out.

Assuming you have the space its a no brainer.

The delta gives you more cast iron on top

The Rockwell is 3 phase, which means you have to factor in the purchase of a converter.
