Well, today is my birthday and a gift to myself will be a new, my first, table saw. After watching countless Youtube and online reviews, I have narrowed down my choices to either the Dewalt 7480 or 7490X. There are tons of comments on these saws, but none that are recent. So, I ask you guys this….
So, I am looking for your advise, as you all of you have much more experience than I do.
Here are my needs:
1. I dont need it to be movbile
Here are some notes that I have gathered, please let me know if I am off base:
1. If I can get a 24” rip capacity, then I could rip 4X8 boards with no issues, so I am not sure I need the extended rip capacity on the 7490x?
I considered the Bosch 4100-09 (I think that is the correct number) but the complaints on the rip fence not being square might be a deal killer for me.
Any suggestions would be great.
