New here but have viewed many threads and projects for quite a while. I’m still fairly new to woodworking as I started last year. One of my first purchases was a Dewalt 7491rs table saw, unfortunately I’ve run into issues with it the biggest is the top is not flat so getting an accurate cut is near impossible. So I am in a spot to upgrade to a better quality and longer lasting saw. Right now I am looking at the new model Laguna F2 table saw and the new Grizzly G0833P. I keep going back and forth so looking for some input from people with more experience. I should add I cant run 220V right now hence the choice of saws. Any input is appreciated. Thank you.

At the price point of the Fusion, I’d opt for the Jet Proshop….it has very similar under pinnings as the Fusion, and a better fence. The Fusion has a two piece aluminum front rail…the Proshop has a single piece steel rail fence.

The Grizzly is a little better value than the Fusion IMO, but is less proven. Early reports have been positive.

I can’t speak to the fusion but am very satisfied with my G0833P so far. It is such a new saw only time will tell, but it seems well built.

yeah the fusion f2 is a new model and has updates as well. How do you like the fence on the G0833p?

So a little update, I stopped by a couple tool places in southern oregon and talked to the guys there and got their opinions. Every person pretty much agreed if I could go with different saw they would suggest it. One tried pushing the jet pro but its just missing things that I want such as a good dust collection system, cabinet mounted trunnions, etc… I’ve really thought about getting a sawstop pro cabinet as I talked to a couple people that had the contractor model just below it and they all suggested if I go that route to wait to be able to buy the professional cabinet saw instead. I’d rather not spend that much money but working in my dads shop in the back woods where no one is around the saw stops safety mechanism does sound very appealing. My big thing is I’m stuck with 110V so anything over 1 3/4hp is out of the picture, is the 1 3/4 hp saw stop worth it? Any other suggestions is appreciated.

The Jet Proshop does have cabinet mounted trunnions, very similar to those on the Laguna. They mount to the front and back cross rails, and are lighter duty than those found on true industrial cabinet saws, but still make alignment easier to adjust.

FWIW, most sales guys don’t have much good to say about Grizzly due to the fact that they make no commission from them. Take their opinions as such.

Have you checked your local used market for a decent saw to tide you over til you can save up for the saw you really want?

Just stopped today at Rockler, they put a Laguna outside, like grosery stores when trying to get rid of about to expire produce. The first impression: Piece of crap. Grizzly is significantly more of a saw. (I judge by G0715P)

Hi Dave Welcome to Ljs
Laguna’s customer service has had bad reviews in the past. I live in Southern Oregon also if If you would like to see a SawStop The school where I teach my adult woodworking class has one you could check out if you’re close to Riddle in Douglas County.
