I have decided that it is time for an upgrade. The saw that my dad left me (1960 Craftsman contractors saw) has had its day and deserves a proper burial.
I want a saw that will last for the rest of my work working days (I am 57) and pass it along to my son.
From my research I have narrowed it down to Grizzly as a brand based on what I have read about the quality of the saws and the customer service.
My budget is $1500.I am seriously looking at the following two saws:
Grizzly has a nice compare feature on their site and I can see that there is little difference in the basic saw, I have no experience with either fence that is offered, the miter gauges are different and one has a router insert built in (nice but not a big deal for me but for $100 I will go for it).
I am hoping that some of the sage folks on the site can shed some light on the subtle differences in these saws and is there a saw that someone believes is worth another look that is within my range.
Thanks in advance.
