I am about to pull the trigger on a saw purchase and would be very interested in what people think of the differences between the Baileigh TS-1044H and the Powermatic 1000 w/ the 30” fence. A comparison of the two more specifically.

I am comparing these two because with the upcoming sale, the Powermatic will be the same price as the Baileigh shipped. I did call Baileigh and asked about a possible sale and/or a reduction in shipping cost and they stated that there will be no sale and that they will not negotiate shipping costs.

Thanks all!

Grizzly has a Christmas sale on their table saws. And Hammer also. I have a unisaw, and have been pleased with it, but last winter bought a sliding table saw, and for crosscutting, it is awesome! Hammer 79 48. Even the smallest Hammer slider is an awesome table saw, with amazing crosscutting.

From what I can tell, the Baleigh is nearly identical to the Laguna Fusion. I’m not recommending one or the other, but if the Baliegh fits the bill, I would at least compare the two closely before deciding.

With that said, if you have 220v, I’d lean heavily toward a 3hp Grizzly cabinet saw over a 120v saw in the same price range.

Thanks Knotscott, I believe you are correct about those saws being the same, but rebranded. Laguna is on its way :)
