OK. I’m looking at buying my first table saw, but I’m a little overwhelmed and would like some help. I’m also pretty new to woodworking and I’m just starting to collect tools to start with and would like some help on that as well. I plan on building a few cages for my reptiles as well as a bookcase, dresser, cabinets, and a few small end tables as well just to give you guys some ideas at the projects I will be tackling.
As far as table saws go I’m looking really hard at the Grizzly G1023rlx. I like the extra length on the table, but I noticed that the G1023rlwx has a built in router table. I guess my question would be is how important is a built in router table? Would I be better off just having a dedicated router table? What should I really be looking at in a table saw as far as accessories go?
My other questions for table saws are there any other brands that I should be considering? I kinda looked at SS, but they are expensive, as well as Delta and Jet. Does twice the price really equal quality or are those made more for commercial use as oppose to hobby use?
As far as building my tool collection. I figured I would go ahead and buy some nice chisels, measurement equipment, and clamps, but what should I purchase next for big tools. A router? I was thinking a planer, but I might be able to get my hands on one for free. Band saw? I’m just not sure what I would use or need the most for future projects.
Thanks for any help in advance and I look forward to being part of this community.
