I'm torn between this and the larger one I could stick a dado blade in. I don't think I'd really need it... But what if I do.

Thanks. Just for home use and couple of small dyi projects. Been using handsaw lol. I normally cut from 1x2 to 2x4 at most.
I definitely use a miter saw more than table saw. The few times i have needed a table saw i borrowed a buddies and it did a good job on 4x8 plywood but so does a clamp and a straight edge. I would only get one if i was doing a lot of volume.

No - Sears had it lower if you consider shop your way points

Make sure to check alighnment. The angle of the blade was off and the parallel of the miter slot to the front of the blade and back of the blade was 0.060". Pretty horrible

$279 from CPO on eBay as well. I'll wait to see if I get an eBay buck promo.

For new DIYers folks be careful... Table saws have a history of the most severe accidents. My wife is making me get rid of my Dewalt portable table saw as it almost took my thumb off... 20+ stitches, nerve damage, more sensitive now to cold. This was after years of projects with it including cutting backerboard, garage wall board, ripping decking, etc... Remodeling my wife's office and ripping real thin window trim was when the mishap occurred... Funny thing is that a lot of white collar folks I know have a friend or bad experience/story with this tool...

Technically no. I bought for $269.99 last week from Amazon. But still a great deal on a well reviewed tool. Been looking to upgrade for some time now and finally bit the bullet.

It only takes one time and I think risks go up as time goes by and you get more and more comfortable with it. That's why I think the sawstop is worth the extra $1000. Yeah, it's expensive but if you're using the table saw a lot, it's worth not having your experience. Otherwise, use a circular saw.

Medical costs (covered by insurance) $40K for mishap
Out of pocket $200
Lost income $10-20K (last year alone)

Lifetime of loss of complete mobility (thumb tip no longer bends much)...

Consider myself lucky as while my right thumb is slightly smaller and has less dexterity and more temperature sensitivity I have seen those that had way worst mishaps.

Some DIY projects just aren't worth the risk... Hence while I still do tile projects at the house and have a miter saw the table saw is being rehomed...

Accidents happen...

Pic at 4 weeks after mishap included.... Be safe all...

Depends on what you need it for. Why not both? Smilie

Oh wait...I never "needed" most of my tools! Smilie
They get expensive! Hehe

If you primarily are just cutting 1 and 2 by 4s and don't need to rip them, go with a miter saw.
Thanks! Missed all those miter saw deals Frown

Quote from CharlesSoden
:
You'd be better off starting with a tool kit and using the circular saw for that type of cutting. Table saw is more suited for sheet goods. If you have no saws, start with circular saw, then reciprocating saw, miter saw, table saw, jigsaw, oscillating (undercut) saw. That would be my order for general DIY. Varies if you are doing furniture building, etc
Thanks, noted. Smilie

I would say most diyers need a miter saw before/more than a table saw.

You can try and make guides/rigs to substitute a circular saw fortable saw, but I'm not sure anything can be done to give you a similar functionality of a miter

I own this saw and the dado capability was the one hangup, but didn't think I'd use it enough for the larger slots. It will take a box joint blade like the one below. Allowing you do to 1/4" or 3/8" slots. For larger slots I'll do 2 passes (not ideal) or clamp a fence and use a router.

keep in mind, dado stacks can be expensive. So, if you don't see yourself using it frequently, you may not end up buying one anyway.

IMHO

A table saw can do everything that a miter saw can do, and much much more.

However, a miter saw makes cross cuts on longer stock more manageable.

Unless you're only going to do picture frames and trim work, I'd get a table saw before a miter saw.
