First of all I want to thank everyone that has educated me while trying to equip my new shop. I am new to this hobby and will be building an outbuilding this spring and I have had a ton of info given to me by the great people on this forum. Now that I have been educated I have narrowed my table saw selection down to three and wanted all you input for these. Thanks again for your vote.

The first that I was considering and these are in order is the Steel City 35905G 10-Inch Left-Tilt Granite Cabinet Saw with 30Inch Industrial T-Square Fence and Riving Knife, 3 HP, 230-Volt, Single Phase

Second is the Grizzly G1023SLW 10” Left-Tilt Cabinet Table Saw

And finally the Grizzly G1023SLX 10” Table Saw 3 HP Single-Phase 220V Left-Tilt w/ 7’ Rails

Thanks again for the advice…

Why don’t I ever see this saw brought up ? Craftsman It looks like a decent saw for the money.

For that kind of cash I would spend a few weeks looking for a used Powermatic 66. I’ve seen some really nice ones on clist lately in my area.

Bemgolf, I purchased a Grizzly G1023S 3HP left tilt about 4 years ago. I’m more comfortable with a left tilt. It’s served me well, & I’m really pleased with it. No mechanical or electrical issues. I had to wire a 220 line into my garage. I don’t have anything else to compare it to, since it’s the only cabinet table saw I’ve owned, but I’m real happy with it. If you plan to use it to cut sheet goods (4×8s) you may want the longer rails.
