New to Lumberjocks, but serious WW hobbiest. I inheirited my dad’s shop, so I am combining his and mine. This is about which tablesaw I should keep, which to sell.
I have an older Unisaw (3HP, single phase) with a Jetlock fence (non-Unifence type). I bought the Unisaw from him maybe 30 years ago—he ran a cabinet shop—and it was at least 10 years old then. It is in average shape—a few marks on the table, but no serious issues.
He had a DW746 with the accessory sliding table, maybe 10 years old or less. I have used it some, but not nearly as much as the Unisaw. I do like the DeWalt fence much, much better, and the dust collection seems better than on my Unisaw.
So I guess I am leaning toward keeping the DeWalt; cannot keep both as I simply do not have the space and don’t really want to store one. Thanks in advance—Any advice, comments or opinions would be appreciated.
