Firstly, I just want to say thanks for all the great information everyone has contributed to the forum, it has been a great help over the last couple of weeks to understand a little more about the table saws on the market. I’ve been doing some light cabinet work with a rip guide and circular saw but want a table saw for the convenience due to renovations I’m starting at home. 1.75-2hp should be sufficient for my purposes (~0.75” stock). I’m looking for consistent accurate cuts with little set up time so I’d like an appropriate fence and well aligned/align-able table saw.
I was originally leaning towards the Grizzly G1023RLX or G0691, however 220V is an issue in my garage. The breaker panel is on the second floor and requires a costly run and I’m not staying here for more than another few years so I’m looking at 110V table saws for now.
I’m currently leaning towards the Grizzly G0771 with an aftermarket fence and mobile base. I can’t really find any negatives with that combination and I haven’t really found any concerning reviews. The majority of people seem happy with the company, despite the occasional quality issue that they’ve made efforts to solve. The Jet is also up there (either the 30” with a fence upgrade or 52” stock fence, both are similar prices in the end) but $200-300 more. So, my question is, am I in the ballpark with my research and heading in the right direction? I’d be happy to hear your thoughts.
I did really like the SawStop (especially their cabinet saw for ~$3000, the fence and overall quality seemed impressive), however the closest saw of theirs in my price range is their contractors saw for $1900 (upgraded SawStop 52” fence not the aluminum one) which is more than I want to spend.
I’ve been looking at the following saws:
Delta 36-725 $600
Delta 36-5152 $1199
Craftsman 22116 / 21833
Laguna Tools Fusion $1300
Jet JPS-10TS (52”) $1500
Grizzly G0771 $675
