    Well Sir, my first choice would be a Grizzly, or a Craftsman. I have several Craftsman tools, & a Grizzly, too. I started out with Craftsman, & have stayed w/them as much as I can. My table saw is an 8" 1950's model I've had for several years. The table & base are cast iron. It's not a huge saw, but it has handled everything I've run through it. Keep an eye on Craigslist in your area, sometimes you can get a good deal on a used saw. Get your hands on the saw. Make sure everything works like it should. If you decide to buy a used saw, the same there. Don't buy it if you can't get your hands on it & look it over, or the owner won't let you run it. Another thing I'd say, avoid as much plastic as possible. Guards will be plastic, throat plates as well. But if the base is plastic, or the fence has any, walk away from it. If I can be of more help, call or shoot me an email. My email is [email protected]. You're welcome to call anytime! Brad

    What are planning to do with the saw? A table saw has far more versatility than a miter saw. You can do most anything on the table saw that you can a miter saw once you learn to use the table saw safely. If it were me, I would invest in a table saw, & start looking for a radial arm saw. Hope this helps you. Brad.

    Thank you for the reply, Sir. We are keepin' warm, & doin ok. getting dug out from the storm. So you're having router issues, huh? Well Sir, what type of plywood ya using? If your router is variable speed, try slowing the speed down a little bit. The chopping could be from to big a round over, to fast, wrong direction, dull bit. W/some more information Patriot, I can help ya with your problem. I'll be happy to help if I can, just give me a shout. My cell number is (785)772-7321. Call anytime. I'm a retired OTR truck driver myself. Drove 35 years. My back & my health retired me soon to be 4 years ago this month. I've been woodworking 16 years. The scroll saw & the lathe are my main fascinations, but there isn't to much I can't do, as long as I keep it within my physical limitations. I'm a self-taught woodworker. From the beginning. I don't claim to know it all, I learn new things everyday, but what works for me, may not work for you. Enjoy the evening, hope to from ya soon!�� Brad

    How are you today? Make anything new? I've been busy digging out from the recent snow storm we had. We got 14" here. Drifts over 5'. I haven't been to the shop all week. Hopefully tomorrow. I've got a project on the scroll saw ready to cut. Enjoy the evening, Sir. Brad
