Welcome to Lumberjocks. You’ve come to the right place to help your dreams come true and also have a few nightmares to boot.

How do you like the Kobalt table saw? I owned one that I used for on-location work. I was pleased with the saw for the price I paid for it however, I was really hard on it and the little tab holding the stand together while it was folded broke. Luckily, it was still under warranty so I decided to upgrade to the DeWalt table saw. Now, granted it’s three times as much so you have to keep that in mind (got it on sale for $179). I really like the fence system on the DeWalt, It has a rack and pinion with one lever to lock. It’s stays dead on square too. Plus,the ruggedness of the stand holds up to my abuse. The DeWalt saw is actually more than the Rigid contractor saw. My buddy Randy has the Rigid that he has used for years. Hope this helps.

j, take advantage of the blog area of LJ. Post what you’re doing. You will always get feedback from woodworkers.

Again, WELCOME.

The TS is decent. I make by with it, faily well at least. Sure beats the bottom if the barrel old craftsman I had before it. Only reason I ended up with it was the fact that I got it very cheap. Being a massive upgrade from my old saw, I jumped on it (paid less than 100 for it :)

Now I have used “the nice saws” before… And, well, ya… Theyre FAR superior, but the price tag reflects it. Hopefully I’ll have a bit more room one day, and I wont need everything on casters! Ive seen a few cabinet saws on FB I would have taken already if it werent for the space issue.
