Im sure this has been asked before somewhere but i dont know where.

I am looking to upgrade from my Dewalt DWE7491 job site table saw to a stationary one. i dont have a ton of room in my garage so it would be nice if it had or could accept drop down locking wheels so when im ready to use it i can roll it over, drop the saw, and cut. im a little more than a hobbyist but not by much. I work in my garage daily to get out of the databases. Id like one for under $1,000 if possible and if not then certainly under $2,000.

So you work with databases and do not know how to search? Something is not right here.
This topic is practically on every page of this forum.

I have had the Grizzly G0690 and think it’s a great saw, but it’s about $1800 with shipping. You can get into some of the hybird says and spend less while still getting a good saw.

I don’t know of any of the cabinet type saws that wouldn’t be a substantial upgrade from your current job saw.

Good luck to you

And it’s snide, unhelpful comments like the first that drive people away from a forum. How dare someone bring up a topic that’s already been discussed. Why, would we want more than a dozen threads to talk in?

“So you work with databases and do not know how to search? Something is not right here.

Or maybe I’d like to get answers tailored to my situation intead of someone else’s.

I’m done with this site, taking this comment to be the norm, I see no advantage of being here.

Grizzly has cabinet type saws with prices
in the $1000 range. People who own them
are generally pleased with the value for the
money invested.

If you want a saw with a more refined fit
and finish look at the Laguna range – some
of the models are made in Europe.

Some people have tried out Baleigh saws and
I got the impression they are a little nicer
in terms of fit and finish compared to Grizzly.

I of course recommend used equipment as
the best bang for the buck but new table saws
have riving knives older ones don’t. The riving
knife is a useful safety feature, imo.

I have a JET JPS10-TS. Around $1000.00. (I had recently upgraded and refurbished an older Craftsman with a Vega fence system. A friend came over to look and made me an offer that allowed me to purchase the JET). Should have bought it a long time ago.

Now I’m going to be very honest. I agree with jnkfile, I’m sick of people jumping on members who ask questions that have previous threads. A lot of that information becomes outdated as new models are introduced or if problems start to surface with models that were newer at the time the thread was posted. Also, others may have purchased saws since the original postings and can now provide their experiences as well. I started using this sight to pick the brains of fellow woodworkers as I tried to navigate what, for me anyway, were large expenditures. In the past, I’d always found the woodworking community to be generous with their time and knowledge. I’ve started to re-think my membership here as I see the troll-like behavior become more commonplace.

From what I have read Grizzly makes a pretty good saws with a more affordable price. My only grizzly tool so far is a 17” bandsaw that I have had for about 4 months now. so far I love it, and I will be considering other Grizzly tools in the future.
So today’s email from Grizzly is advertising last chance at 2016 prices. Seems all the tool companies raise the price January 1st. http://www.grizzly.com/email/view?templateid=650fd994-cc3e-4d4a-b813-6039385e5a02&emailaddress=nvhiker%40msn.com&couponcode=&customername=Grizzly+Preferred+Customer&expires=December+31st%2c+2016

Also I have a flyer from woodcraft advertising a 15% off Jet tools January 5th through the 9th.
Woodcraft gets there ad out early, but typically Jet prices are fixed. When they go on sale everyone will have the same sale at the same time.

So here is a link to another forum thread from a couple weeks ago. Similar table saw questions and budget.

Good luck

Id say just about every topic that can be discussed has been discussed here or on another forum somewhere. So since that is the case why would anyone post anything here or anywhere else…. After all all the woodworking info has been done and probably is in books somewhere… so why discuss it here.

Come on people the reason for these forums is for others to ask questions. If you don’t want to read a repetitive question move on to the next comment.

As for the OP…I’m kinda in the same boat. I’m probably going to end up with the Delta 36-725 (found one used cheap) but I have been looking at the G0690 and g1023 Grizzly saws. Both seem like they get good reviews. So im still learning about them and saving money

If you simply type in “table saw” in the search box, you will get a lot of hits, including this excellent article by knotscott…
http://lumberjocks.com/knotscott/blog/32154

Hope this helps a little.

As for me, I have a Grizzly 1023 RLW in a one car garage with a lot of stuff in it. Fur years now and never had any problems. Quiet and powerful.

+10 on buying a G0690!

G0690 Tablesaw

Mobile base plus extension kit

http://www.grizzly.com/products/Extension-Kit-For-D2057A/D2259A = $59.95 plus sh.
NOTE: The mobile base has retractable foot-pads for when TS is in use.


Grizzly H7507 – Router Extension Table for Table Saw

OK “jbay”, here you go as far as the Harley. Last Feb. I hit my 3rd deer on it and spent over a month in the hospital and rehab. Once I got out I rebuilt/restored it PLUS added some Fat-Daddy 50 wheels, Wide White Walls, Performance Machine brakes with Russell Chrome Polished brake rotors, rebuilt the front forks with heavy duty Performance Suspension springs, rebuilt the transmission with new bearings and mainshaft, replaced the entire Primary Drive unit and chain, added a new Mustang seat, etc. Oh yeah, also bought an air-compressor driven lift for the bike, erh…uhh…me too!

Had to treat myself for living though 3-deer strikes… ;-)

The way I look at it, the 3rd time’s the charm… so now that I got THAT out of the way, I’m done with deer!

That’s a nice bike,

Now if you could only figure how to mount one of these, Deer would be no problem… :>)

I don’t think Carloz was out of line at all.How would we know what tablesaw is right for you.
Threads like this are nothing more than a tablesaw poll that sometimes turns into a pissing contest.
I find for myself buying used it the best.
Good luck and buy what ever you like.

It’s not fair or accurate to assume that the rest of the folks here are representative of one snide remark….most of us have no control of or association with those remarks. There’s a jerk in every crowd. If you want help, there’s lots of it to be had here.
