Looking for some input on the shop fox w1824 Hybrid table saw.
Anyone out there have any feedback on this saw? I am looking to upgrade
My craftsmen table saw . And the shop fox is the the leader of the new saws. I have a local dealer , I try to support the small guy when I can.

And the shop fox is the the leader of the new saws. Not sure what this means.

A lot of folks on LJ have Grizzly table saws, and Shop Fox is the local store line of the same company (Grizzly is on-line only). If you look up the corresponding Grizzly model, my guess is that you’ll find reviews or forum posts about it here.

AFAIK, the G715P is the equivalent.

If you look here at Shop Fox and here at Grizzly you can download spec sheets and compare them.

I’ve had my shopfox almost a year now. It is the same as the grizzly with a few miner differences. I got mine on sale at a woodworking show so the net difference in cost was just over $100. I thought it was well worth the extra money to have fully assembled, tested, local support and the added year warranty. I have worked in a cabinet shop before with a unisaw, so I’‘ve experienced a more powerful saw. This saw is adequate for the things I do. I got a good rip blade and it doesn’t bog down at all with 4/4 stock. I have no issues with the saw and if your not going into full production mode you will enjoy the upgrade. It came prewired for 220v which I wanted but can be converted to 110v. I also have a shopfox bandsaw for two years and have had no issues with it. I’m happy with both saws.

I noticed that shop fox just came out with a new hybrid model (w1837) it is a contractor looking style but has cabinet mounted trunnions with a 2hp motor wired for 120v. I will be checking this out at my local fox shop dealer.
