The screw and pinion gear on my job site Porta Cable table saw ($169) which I bought in 2013 and have used for all of my projects as well as for several whole house remodels, finally gave up yesterday. Mindful that I’d gotten my money’s worth out of it and having had aspirations for a more accurate saw with, perhaps more features I purchased a Dewalt work site saw for which I immediately had to build a sled. Used left over oak flooring cut down for the slides 3/4 oak plywood for the base, a piece of salvaged chestnut from a home remodel and now ready to finish the remaining Christmas gifts. Nothing fancy , like most of my shop, but accurate and functional.

Not a tool review, but Dewalts rack and pinion fence is pretty sweet.

Quick to make and very handy for some jobs. Nice work. Those jobsite Dewalts look pretty good too.

I had that same saw and built a sled for it also. I loved the fence system. If it wasn’t for the loud whining motor I would still own it. I sold it to my neighbor. It’s just as loud when it’s running over at his shop as it was in mine.

You may actually want to ask for directions. You might be lost! :)
