Its a big decision you don’t want to get wrong. I started out with one of those C’man tablesaws and it was a horror show. The fences are junk, the machine is underpowered and because of those two, extremely unsafe. Which is something you DON’T want for your first ts. The missing side of my thumb proves that.

So trust me I would avoid them totally. Plus the cost of adding a fence is more than the machine is worth. That said, the new model C’mans are probably OK.

Quick search yields some fantastic deals in your area!! The Powermatic is a great deal if you can swing it.

But in that price range:

This is a much better deal if you’re stuck on C(raps)man.

This is even better.
