Topic tags/keywords: question

Lately I am in search of circular saw bench. Beyond the brand I have seen the following types of tables. Can anyone tell me their differences, the pros and cons and of course if someone has worked in Type 1 I would like a review of this type. I have read sites like http://www.rockler.com/how-to/table-shop/ but I cannot find reasons to buy type 1 or 2.
Thanks in advance.

Those saws are kinda small. OK if you want to work with small stuff.

Here are my two. Big difference. Grizzly 1023 and DeWalt DWE7480

I use the little DeWalt for cutting trim and filler strips on location.
My sweetie was hooking up the 2 1/2 inch dust collection hose. Easy fit.

DWE7480
It has a short arbor – dado stack won’t fit. I did manage to use two 7 1/4 inch circular saw blades and a shim to cut the grooves for 17 drawer bottoms. Worked great.

The saw is loud, but at 45#, it is easy to haul around, and it stores neatly when mounted on it’s stand.

Sorry, that’s all I can offer. I have never heard of the saws you posted.

Thanks Mike , Grizzly 1023 is a dream. I have limited space. In Greece DeWalt as I know haven’t the best after sale sevice. Metabo is German and have motors 3,1 kW type 1 and 2KW the type 2. The table are small but for my space is ok. My problem is why someone choose type 1 or type 2.

The type 1 is a portable hand held saw mounted in a table. The saw can be removed for hand held cutting. The type 2 saw is a job site saw that can only be used as shown. The type 1 is more versatile and probably costs more than the type 2.

Mike, when you store the saw on end as in your picture doesn’t the oil or gas leak out?

There is nothing to leak out. Well maybe some sawdust. :-)

The oil in those saws are a very special type. When the saw is in use (horizontal) the oil is very thing and does it’s job. But, as soon as you turn the saw vertical the oil instantly turns to a heavy grease and stays put.

Hope that helps.

Oh, I read about that “positional viscosity” very trick.
