I agree about burn marks.
When buying a tablesaw, a jointer, a bandsaw or a planer, my advice is to buy the last one first. Don't buy a succession of sub-standard equipment, heavy duty equipment is easier to learn on, safer and will last longer.
"Buy the one you're going to end up with first!" -- My lovely wife
For a tablesaw, power, power, power.
I ended up with a JET JTAS 10.
Five horsepower, and I've never thought to myself "oh, wait, it's too powerful."
"When I have your wounded." -- Major Charles L. Kelley, callsign "Dustoff", refusing to recognize that an LZ was too hot, moments before before being killed by a single shot, July 1, 1964.
