I am looking at getting a new table saw. The problem is limited space. Essentially, I have a single car garage to work with- although I can spread it out a little bit if needs be. I can go with:
OPTION A: a contractor saw (ie- the $599 Delta) and add a fold out Extension table or build a separate workbench that doubles as an outfeed as well.
OPTION B: a portable saw in which I build a mobile base/stand with an outfeed table all in one unit.
Some requirements I am looking for:
I’ve got limited space to work with- but either of these options CAN work. I’ve learned to let Home Depot do the big sheet cutting whenever possible- but there’s still some occasions where I’d do it myself. Outfeed table is essential for me. I’m not sure if I’ll leave the TS setup in the middle of the space, or, wheel it off against the wall when it’s not in use. Either way, the solution needs to be mobile so I can move it as needed.
Since the workbench/outfeed dictates the size of saw- which do you guys suggest? Anyone have some insights or ideas that I haven’t considered yet? Which way would you go?
