I am new to woodworking and would like to purchase some power tools that are compact and can be used in my garage and then put up as needed if I want to pull my car into the garage. I have looked at some small table saws and believe the best option for me would be the Dewalt DWE7491RS if I go the Table Saw route. However I have also recently discovered the track saw systems like the Festool and EZ Smart. These seem like safer options and I find myself interested in going this direction. Although this will be a bit more expensive.
I plan to use the tools for building things like a new bench for our front porch and a linen cabinet for our master bathroom. Maybe a bookcase as well.
Here are the options I am considering…
TS55 Saw – $660
MFT3 Table – $504
Total – $1164
Makita 5008 Saw – $319 (setup to work with the EZ System.)
EZ Smart Table – $999
Total – $1318
Dewalt DWE7491RS Table Saw with Stand – $579
I would appreciate your comments on these options for a new woodworker.
