Having looked around for information about sliding table saws and my purchasing a Hammer B3, I thought I’d put together a comparison between the two styles that is as comprehensive as I could be. I’m not saying that everyone should buy a slider, but I think that those who have the means and the space should consider a slider. I believe that in terms of safety and usability, a slider excels out-of-the-box.

At some point, I’ll be doing a comprehensive review of the Hammer B3
