As some of you know I’m outfitting my shop and spending hours looking at and debating the merits of various brands and models of table saws. As I was looking at the 4 sizes of saws in the Hammer line, the 31×31, the 31×48, the 48×48, and the 79×48
I started wondering what type of project would each of these saws be best at?. As one who is focused on expanding my skills in building boxes and furniture, is the big saw just to much of a luxury? or worse yet, will I outgrow the small saw as my skills improve? With a $2000 price difference between the smallest and largest capacities, it’s a very important question. I’ve been asking myself which of these saws is in the sweet spot and I haven’t figured it out yet. Anybody willing to help me bring some clarity to this I would very much appreciate it.
For what it’s worth, here is the direction I’m going with other equipment:
