The table saw is one of the most important power tools in a wood shop; if you are purchasing your first table saw, you need to determine which type will meet your needs and budget:  1. A portable, table top or 2. A fixed table saw, which can also be mounted on castors to move around your shop.  When it comes to price, there are table saws priced less than $100 up to multiple thousands of dollars.

The table saws recommended below are for the home or professional woodshop; Glenn Gesler of www.customwoodproducts.com is a cabinet maker and he uses Delta table saws.

Delta Table Saws Glenn Gesler of www.customwoodproducts.com states:

Delta, Powermatic saws in conjunction with Everlast blades are reliable and they hold up over time.

Wayne J. Wendricks of Advantage Woodworks states:

 I love my 3 HP Delta Unisaw simply because it cuts like a hot knife through butter.  I joint and plane every piece of stock after rough cutting on the T-saw.

Johnny W. Morlan of Morlan Wood Gifts states:

The Delta Model 36-650 10" Professional Table Saw. It is small, taking up less space than most other table saws, but has a 1 1/2 horsepower motor and a heavy duty fence. With the extension wings, it will rip up to 30" to the right of the blade.

SystiMatic Blades are expensive, but for a home workshop will probably last the owner a lifetime. They take a lot of abuse and will stay sharper longer, even under heavy usage; more so than most other brands.
