Hey Folks! I know, to many here neither may be worth discussing. However, given my current circumstances of a very small one-car garage workshop, portable and folding works. One is a Ryobi RTS31 which I bought new years ago and has served me well. Basic ripping and such. I have a compound mitre saw. The other, a Kobalt (Some say identical to Delta) KT-1015. I picked up the Kobalt today in response to a local ad. Gently used by a DIY’er moving to Texas from LI. I got it for $40, distress sale, all parts included—-Just had to grab it! Main reason being the Kobalt has 3/4” mitre slots and a ‘solid’ aluminum table . The Ryobi has a sliding table mitre sled and ‘stamped’ aluminum saw table. I want to make mitre sleds and other jigs. The Ryobi won’t accommodate that. The dilemma; which one to keep? No room yet for a contractor, belt-drive, cast iron table saw for the foreseeable future. Sorry no pix yet. Turned wet and raw out there by the garage tonight!
