If you had $1500 for a new table saw...
I've been fiddling with wood for about 5 years now, but only "woodworking" for the last 2-3 years. I have a potential project that will be my largest order by far (a little over $2,000), and if it goes through, I want to upgrade my saw. Right now, I have a Dewalt saw that I'm really starting to hate (the biggest problem is that the table is nowhere close to flat), and the more I think about it, the more I want to replace it.
So: If you had $1,500 for a new table saw, what would you buy?
- Portability is NOT important to me. I've moved my saw exactly once in the past 3 years, and I can't see a scenario which requires me to move my saw again.
- I don't want to have to pay someone to rewire my shop, so it needs to work on standard 120v.
- I occasionally cut 8/4 hardwood, but most of the time it's 4/4.
- EDIT: Right now I'm a stay-at-home dad building up my Etsy shop when I can, and my goal is to definitely see if I can make woodworking my full-time job once the kids are in school. So I'm looking for something that will stand up to that kind of workload.
