My name is Drew and I am new to this forum. I am conducting research around my area and seeing what other people are purchasing in terms of a table saw. I am a recent graduate, and as a graduation present to myself I will be purchasing a nice table saw. I have browsed the forums here, over at http://reddit.com/r/woodworking and I have come to conclusion that the quality of saw comes down to luck, who you know and how much you are willing to spend. I have about $700 to purchase my table saw.
This is one that I am going to question: http://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/tls/4568086194.html
It is a Delta Unisaw from around 1987 is when it was built. Would this be a good starting option? I am very new to woodworking, but would prefer to have something safe to make cuts. And something that will last a very long time.
I also considered a craftsman 113 belt drive saw and do some renovation to it.
I am from Toledo OH (recent survivor of the Water algea bloom), and I am willing drive within a 90 mile radius. So Detroit, Ann Arbor, etc…
I would certainly appreciate any feedback.
