thank you for your replies guys. My woodworking goals would include little stuff like toys and such the my grandpa used to make. Also some furniture. I am building a coffee table right now that I will post some pictures of when I am done. As for price range I am looking to spend in the 300 - 400 dollar range. I would certainly consider saving more in order to get a better quality saw.
I was at home depot today carpentercross and looked the saw you are talking about. Seemed really nice, the fence moved well and was accurate( Im sure I looked like a goof with my tape measure measuring both ends). Ill look more into that one.
Thanks again guys
