Hi friends, I’m looking at buying a new table saw…right now I have a Porter Cable portable table saw and it moves on me more then I like. To be honest I’m new at this so I make enough mistakes on my own. My budget is about 1000 bucks. and yes I have looked on craigslist for months now and nothing good ever pops up. I have narrowed my choices to this

Grizzly 10” Hybrid Table Saw G0715P
Grizzly Contractor Style Saw G0732
Steel City Tool Works 35990G 10-Inch Contractor Table Saw
and maybe the Jet contractor table saw a little more then I want to spend but its on my list.

Or any other suggestions you can give me is welcomed and thank you for your help. I have been wood working for about a year…so you understand why I dont need to spend anymore at this point.

The G0732 isn’t quite full size, has steel wings, and a rather suspect fence in this price range IMO. The G0715P is well reviewed, and the new G0771 looks to be a decent buy too. The Steel City 35990 offers cabinet mounted trunnions…the fence isn’t quite on par with the G0715P’s fence, but it’s decent. The Craftsman 22116 on sale could be worth a look too….has a granite top, cabinet mounted trunnions, a good steel t-square fence, and is made by Steel City/Orion.

The usual suspects for < $600 include the Delta 35-726, Ridgid R4512, and Craftsman 21833.

If you have 220v available, I’d consider getting the G1023RL….different class of saw for ~ $400 over budget.

It’s worth noting that the R4512, 21833, and G0715P have similar guts under the hood, and that several were plagued by a problem with the blade shift alignment when the blade was raised or lowered. They’ve supposedly fixed it on all them, but is worth a good look early on if you end up with one of those.
