I’m seeing a CL ad for this 3 to 4 year old saw in my area for $550 including 52” Beisemeyer fence system and extension table. I currently have a +/-15 year old 10” Delta contractor table saw that I bought new. I was about to buy the Beisemeyer fence system for it when I ran across this saw. I’m not familiar with this saw but I know a Biesemeyer set-up alone would run me about $400 alone. Can anyone enlighten me?

Found this link about it. IIRC, this was an early hybrid type saw that basically hangs contractor type trunnions inside the cabinet. It could be a nice upgrade for not a lot of money if you sell your contractor saw.

Thanks, knotscott. The link is very helpful. I guess I’ll go take a look at it. I couldn’t find any information on it online and, while I assumed it was a better saw than I already have, I wasn’t sure. Do you know what is meant by a “hybrid saw”?

By the way, it’s amazing how time flies. I guessed that my “bought new” table saw was 15 years old but I checked it out and it’s 24 years old! Man, am I getting old.

They call them “hybrid” saws as they do not exactly fit as either a contractor’s/jobsite saw or in a cabinet saw. This type of saw is “in between” per most of the discussions I have read. Typically though, the hybrids are a few notches below a cabinet saw….and a few notches above a contractor’s….They are not a bad deal for someone who needs a bit more accuracy then a small saw….but cannot afford or have the room for a larger cabinet saw.
