Now for the advice:
I’ve been slowly amassing tools and building a hobbyist shop in our 2 car garage that I have to share with my wife’s car. I have the garage wired for 220. I’m getting close to having it outfitted properly – have a desalt 735 planer, various hand planes, a festool ts55, drill press, 10” band saw, and various other tools – both hand tools and power.
I currently have a Dewalt 744 as my table saw and was looking around for a decent deal and came across this:
I still need to outfit my shop with a jointer so being able to get a good deal on a table saw is key. Is this a good table saw for $630?
I was going to save up for a Grizzly 3hp but this would be half the price and if it can get me through the next 10 years I may pull the trigger (especially if I can convince sears to match the price they have it at other outlets – $420).
I’ve looked all over this forum and others and people that own them seemed please with them but the reviews are all 3 years old and I haven’t seen anyone update them with their thoughts after years of use. Then there are others that say they would never buy a Craftsman.
So, gentlemen and ladies, I come to you hat in hand to ask “Would you pull the trigger?”
