The book of proverbs, or maybe its just my Dad, says, “there is wisdom in the council of many”, so lay it on me! I’ve narrowed it down to these two saws. I make some furniture and need to bump up from the DW job site saw before it’s small table kills me. If there’s a saw I’m overlooking please feel free to tell me. I’ve eliminated the Delta 36-5000, and the more budget minded 36-725 due to some pretty serious negative reviews and my lack of confidence in doing the necessary adjustments. That being said, I am also open to being convinced that I am overbuying, and a contractor saw would do the job. Ready, set, go!

The Jet Proshop is in the same price range as the Laguna Fusion, and has very similar innerds under the hood (the exploded parts diagrams look identical). It also has a very well proven track record, and a stouter all steel fence (the Fusion has a two-piece aluminum rail), so that’s a saw I’d be looking at in this price range if you’re limited to a 120v saw. The Jet might even have a longer warranty than the Fusion but I didn’t check.

The G0833P is really new…might be great, but it’s a big question mark right now.

You will never hear my say you are over buying if you can afford it. Every time I have accepted a compromise from what I really wanted I have come to regret it. I have seldom regreted buying what I wanted with the exception of a few times when I regretted not setting my sights high enough.

Have your say...
