Look into the Shop Fox 2 HP 10in Hybrid Cabinet Table Saw. The 2 or 3 HP will be my next table saw. I have a Delta Cabinet saw that is a good saw I picked up second-hand, but missing some parts like the riving knife and blade guard, and want to use it dedicated to Dadoes and add a second saw. The Shop Fox is a good brand. I love my Show Fox 8 inch jointer. It is just a beast. I put that through a lot of work, in terms of my Jet 15 in planner it out-produces it. The price is about 1500 for 2hp, and 3 hp is up around 2,100. Almost done paying off the kid’s cars so wanting to get one soon. Have a look at the Shop Fox they make good tools.

Contractor saws just don’t have the power like a cabinet saw. I have had some and when I upgraded to the cabinet saw for building Mantels with Hardwood boards and hardwood plywood it was a vast improvement on the clean cuts on the ply. No tear out just crisp cuts.
