Thanks folks for all your inputs. I sold my Jet contractors table saw a couple of days ago…and as much as I’d have like to have kept it….it wasn’t a priority in my new shop (for the little that I used it). A couple of you posted about the Shopsmith….been there, done that and I didn’t like having to constantly change up configurations.

I’m still undecided on what I’ll do…but it sounds like one of the Dewalt or Bosch portable saws is the way to go for my situation….and then either the Kreg Adaptive Cutting system…or the Festool track saw to do a majority of my crosscutting and/or ripping.

Layout in my garage is pretty basic…I have some limited room along the sides and some in the front so having everything set up on portable bases is critical…and, Yes, my Jet tablesaw was mounted on a mobile base. I will be building some mobile bases for some of my other tools as well.

Thanks again for all your inputs. If anybody has used or is familiar with either the Kreg ACS or Festool Tracksaw systems please let me know because I’d like to get as much real life information on these tools rather than trusting all the marketing hoopla on these.
