Just made an account here to ask a question since every time i search for something a Lumberjocks page pops up and in most cases has a good solution to my problem. So here I am making a more custom problem, hoping you guys have a solution.
I am somewhat limited by space as there are plenty of times i had to move the saw over right beside the workbench to put my car back in the garage. The other major limitation is that I only have 110V in the garage, and the entire thing seems to be on a single breaker which is really annoying if i jamp a wide piece of wood into the planer with the vacuum running and it trips. So i need to find something that is 110V 15A and being able to move it is a bonus, not a must. I should also mention that i live in Canada, which means the prices are higher and the selection is smaller (at least it seems). I am trying to keep it under $1000 but if there is something majorly great at a bit more i would likely spend the money.
So far the top contenders are:
Delta 36-725 from Lowes – $750
Craftex CT146 from Busy Bee Tools – $800
General International #50-090RC from Rona – $900
I am still trying to figure out what is important in a table saw, but so far to me having a cast iron top and an excellent fence seem like two very important features. Is there anything else really important i should look out for? what do you gentlemen think about all this?
