I currently have a Steel City granite cabinet table saw. After seeing they are going out of business, I have the impetus to get a new table saw.
I was contemplating a Saw Stop for the safety. I’m not a fan of their tactics, etc but it is still a very, very well built saw and as my real life job involves using my hands and my other hobby as a musician requires my finger use, Saw Stop would be something to consider.
With the Saw Stop, I would be interested in the sliding table attachment, but that does get the cost rising fast.
A dedicated sliding table saw would keep my hands away from the blade and also help me doing some straight line rips on my rough lumber as well.
What are the cons to owning one as a dedicated table saw in the shop? I hear people saying they’re better, safer, yada, yada, yada but I want to know what the limitations and drawbacks are if any.
Sorry for the long post for a simple question, but easier to answer questions if a little back story is provided ;)
