I am looking for an inexpensive, safe and useful table saw to make my little projects both easier to repeat and complete.
i didn't want to spend more than 200.00, so I am limited for choices.
Most of the projects I undertake are with re-claimed wood or off-cuts so it still needs to be solid and capable to cut various hardwoods.
Solved! See most helpful response
I did build my own using a clamped circ saw, safe enough, but not a lot of accuracy,
i will check out the Ozito, and will also have a look at the Bosch. (If only to dream)
Aldi had one earlier in the year for 100.00, and seemed to have good reviews, I just felt I couldn't trust it wouldn't have been a waste of money.
Thanks for your input,
I got the ozito version of the cheap Aldi table saw that you said you'd seen.
Like most table and drop saws you'r going to have to get a better quality blade when you purchase it to get a fine cut.
The straight edge was uselesss on it, i have found that on most portable table saws except the dewaults, then you are looking at spending $1000. Worth it for quality and ease of use.
I then dropped my saw into one of my work tables to give me a large cutting surface, routed out a couple of parallell tracks for a cross-cut jig for horizontal cut and mitre cuts
