I would classify that as a mid-range saw. You may get more responses on the Woodworking Tool Forum.

I have a Craftsman cabinet saw. It was about $1000, but is an excellent saw and has a Biesemeyer fence. You can't beat that fence.

Table Saw


You don't say how much room you have. A cabinet saw is the best but takes up quite a bit of room. Next is a contractors saw it is smaller but mobile and can be wheeled out of the road if need be. The down side is you loose a lot in the footprint in other words the top is a lot smaller, an out feed table is a must if you plan on cutting any sheet goods or long materials. And unless you plan on moving it a lot like job site to job site or room is such a problem that you have to fold it and stand it in a corner between uses I would not consider a portable. The table is so small it is considered dangerous by some for cutting large pieces unless you have a helper. These are only my opinions and I'm sure some will disagree.

Table Saw


ToolSeeker said it. Cabinet saw if you have the room. You could put it on a mobile base, too. Contractor's saw if you need someting smaller. Portable if you are really short of space (as I am). One more thing; it may be tough to find a cabinet saw that runs on 110.

There's a new style, called a hybrid, that may be best. Motor's inside like a Cabinet, rather than hanging off the back like a Contractor's. But the cabinet doesn't go all the way to the floor, and the motor's usually 110.

I bought the rigid. It cost about $700, and has been quite good.

I also have the Ridgid and am happy with it. But almost every day I wish I had the room for a new Delta big boy.
