I need to get a cabinet saw and have a dilemma that many would beg for. Have a chance to at two saws. 12”, 5hp rt tilt, Grizzly g5959 and a 10”, 3hp, lf tilt, shop fox g1677. Same company, right? Have no shorter than a 4hr drive each way for either, both around $750. I figured even with the cost of gas I’d be ahead. Can you have to much saw? Any advice?
