Looking for a Table Saw


for those who use the ryobi...do you feel like it is a little small? I haven't gone to check it out at home depot, but just comparing it online it looks like the work space on top is small.

Another Question....how about the blade speed. I see the ryobi is 5000 rpm, I've was looking at a different model and that was around 3800 rpm. would the 1200 difference be a noticeable different?

Looking for a Table Saw


Check the amps of the saw and see how strong it is, I hate a saw that bogs down when cutting, not only will it ruin your saw it is dangerous.

I just checked out the Ryobi saw pros and cons, here is the link.

Looking for a Table Saw


You can easily overbuy. I have a cabinet saw that I gave over $1000 for and seldom use it. It's just easier to carry a portable with me and do the cuts on the job. The big one came in handy when I was making furniture, but there's no money in that anymore.
