Better Table Saw Buying Advice – Better Decisions

Are you in the market for the best compact table saw?

Sure, you could simply go for the smallest and lightest saw available, but would that be fit for your purpose?

If you’re only looking to cut plywood, then a sub 10 lb. compact table saw could be all you need. However, if you need to cut solid wood, crosscut framing pieces, or even make cabinets or floorboards, then you’ll need a larger unit.

Big or small, our guides will help you to understand the difference, while making suggestions for some of the best units.

Terminology will be critical as you look through online reviews and ecommerce sites.

What makes a good saw blade, what is a rip fence for, and why is the miter gauge important?

Or, who is the best table saw manufacturer and what are the best safety precautions I should have in mind when I am using my table saw?

If one table has a rack and pinion rip fence but another has a simple sliding fence, which one should you go for? Guides like the Table Saw Parts and Accessories guide will help you to answer these questions, and many more.
