Topic tags/keywords: table saws

I thought it would be nice to see what everyone is using in their shop for a Table Saw. Then share with everyone what your dream saw would be. I will start

My son and I have a Craftex CT146 (Same as the Ridgid 3650) Our Dream saw would be the Craftex CX201

I just recently acquired a Grizzly G1023. I dream small so for right now, this is the one.

My perpetual hunt for my first table saw is still underway. I think I’ve narrowed it down to:
Practical and most likely – Ridgid R4512
If I splurge a little – Grizzly G1023RL OR G0690
Dream saw – Sawstop PCS (won’t happen)

Ridgid R4511, currently parked in the corner

and the Jet Xacta Deluxe that I upgraded to in March.

I realized I kept kinda looking and looking for 2 years at this saw and finally decided that was enough. I must want it so I got it. Been very pleased with it.

Delta 36-980.

It works well, but it’s had some abuse over the years, so it needs some work done.

What I really want is one of the steel city cabinet saws that run on 110 power. The main reason is the cabinet mounted trunions.

Shop Fox W1677 3hp cabinet saw. I’ve added a BORK riving knife and .Jet Xacta II fence w/router fence attachment.

Dream saw would have been a General 650, but there’s no need and no justification for it.

1947 Unisaw upgraded to a T2 fence. It was my grandpa’s. Just finished restoring it. I love it. Gave my Ridgid 3650 (awesome saw) to my dad.

SawStop PCS-175 … just acquired in May for the new shop ( http://lumberjocks.com/TheDane/blog/30273 ).

I bought the SawStop for the safety feature (10 and 12 year old grandsons will be in the shop with me), and was pleasantly surprised to find I had purchased a first class piece of engineerting as well.

It replaced a 6 year old Jet 708100 (Workshop Tablesaw).

Started off with a Delta TS350 about 6 years ago.
I still have the 350 but my main saw is now a 1980 Unisaw with Incra fence.
