I recently decided to upgrade my table saw. My budget and space still only allows a benchtop style table saw, but I was able find a pretty good upgrade, in my opinion. I purchased a DeWalt benchtop saw. I really liked this saw because it has standard miter slots, and a real riving knife. I plan to build a descent cross-cut sled for this saw as well as some other jigs that I haven’t been able to make/use on other benchtop saws. I used it all afternoon and found that it cuts well and is a pleasure to use. It didn’t come with a stand, so I re-purposed a stand that came with an old Skil table saw and fitted it with a piece of 3/4” ply as a top.

I started out with one of these and sold it about 3 years ago. It is one of the best benchtop saws out there is my opinion. When I sold it, the guy who bought it was so happy to have one in good condition that he never even tried to bargain with me. You will love this benchtop… many times I wish I had kept it and used it along with my Grizzly. The only drawback is that it will not take a dado blade.

Josh and Ellen, Thanks for th efeedback on this saw I am hoping to replace my Ryobi starter saw in the next year or so. I to have space and budget limitations, so I’ll take a look at this one. Could you possibly give me the model number?
