Just to jump in for a moment. I have a Dewalt DWE7480 that I bought at Lowes. It’s been rock-solid for me over the last two years. I built a portable cart for it, see the image. That’s a sled I made, sitting on the top. The fence is solid and cuts are straight. It can’t do dados, but I knew that before I bought it. For my needs, it’s been great. Would it be nice to have a full-size saw in my garage? Of course? However, since I can’t afford one, don’t have the room, and don’t sell anything I make, I can’t justify the purchase. That being said, my dewalt does darn near everything I need.

Buy what fits your budget and your needs but don’t think these smaller table saws are worthless.

I recently added a wing with some MDF I had on hand – not shown in photo.
