Am retired and now furnishing a small wood shop to do some cabinet work and build stuff for 5 kids plus grandkids anut d of course mother. Have worked with wood for years, remodeled my whole house including building the kitchen cabinets, dinning room table, etc etc. But I had use of my brothers extensive cabinet shop. Well, to my question, I have no more then $600 bucks to send on a new table saw and have been looking at the delta 36-725 and the Ridgid R4512 because they fit my price range. Yes, I would like to have a Grizzly, etc, but the price is out of question. What would me the best choice?? OR is there a 10 table saw I have over looked?

I’m not thrilled with either of the choices, but both have followings and could make for a good saw. The Craftsman 21833 is nearly identical the R4512 but comes with a slightly larger motor.

$600 could buy a heck of a nice used saw….do you have 220v available?

Do not have 220 available. Been looking at some used, but buyer beware.

I just read the DANCIS02 posting dated 4/12/2017 that covers my question above.
I know my options now.
