How big of a space do you have?

What kind of woodworking do you want to do. Cabinets and bigger things or smaller boxes and toys?

Do you have 220 VAC?

Remember that you will need to buy saw blades and a better miter gauge

Bottom line is are you looking at a cabinet saw or a good smaller saw.

If you are doing bigger projects with plywood, you may want to have a circular saw and edge guide along with a table saw.

Footprint won’t differ enough to make a difference. However you are looking at lifetime saws (Cab saws), as opposed to saws that most woodworkers look to replace as soon as they can. Looking at CL, you will see tons of contractors, and hardly any Cab saws. Hybrids are just a contractor (guts and motor) wearing a skirt. Don’t wanna gp for a cab saw, your best bet $$$$ wise is to rehab an older Sears and Robuck 113 saw
