Those are all viable saws, but the 3 with a price tag are all a tad steep IMO.

The Shop Fox is pretty significant step up and is worth giving some serious thought to, but I wouldn’t pay their asking price. It’s the same saw I’ve had since 2008, and it’s been a gem….it is indeed a white version of the G1023SL (FWIW, the BORK riving knife will fit, and works well on mine). I was fortunate to pay $903 delivered to my door due to some special promotions, but I think the going rate was more like $1300-$1400 new. I’d think fair price would be closer to $800….maybe even less. Can’t hurt to tell him what your budget is, and make an offer.

If the W1677 doesn’t pan out, the 22116 has cabinet mounted trunnions, a riving knife, and a full enclosure going for it….warranty probably isn’t worth much at this point.

...I can t believe I m offering advice on a “what saw should I buy” thread.


Fun, isn’t it! ;-)
