Lots of 2 inch thick maple to cut. What kind of tablesaw?


After 7 years of building my shop, and buying close to 15k worth of tools (and the renos), I need to buy a tablesaw. The old Delta that I have just will not cut anything like this, and I need to buy a tablesaw that I will be using for the next few years that will be able to deal with all this 2 inch thick stock that has been aging in my shop the last few years. I need some idea what kinda machine I need to buy that this maple will not be a problem. Can someone steer me? Thanks folks...Kerry

Get a Grizzly catalog--I've had a 10" cabinet saw from them for several years--
Strong,accurate--fine fence---56"? rip capacity.

Great customer service. I use mine to build cabinets for my business.---Mike---

A cabinet saw would be a good choice, but an expensive one. A less expensive saw with a belt drive(no direct dirve) and a higher HP motor will do the job. But make sure you have a quality carbide blade.

If the motor still runs, just buy a new, good quality blade and you're good to go! Why buy a new one? (Unless you have a small 7" and want a new 10")
