Table Saw: Ryobi vs DeWalt vs Bosch v...
I am about to purchase a table saw for casual (10-15 hours/month) home use. Flower boxes and outdoor furniture at first, as well as interior trim and eventually maybe some kitchen cabinets...
My budget is about $500 for the saw and have narrowed it down to:
* the Ryobi BT3000SX ($399)
* the DeWalt 744S ($499)
* the Bosch 4000 ($499)
* the Rigid TS2400 ($499)
I have read the recent reviews in Fine Homebuilding
and Fine Woodworking http://taunton.com/fw/features/tools/tablesaws/1.htm
Currently I am leaning towards the Ryobi but wanted some feedback from other users first...
The sliding miter table on the Ryobi is one feature that stands out (good or bad).
I am curious whether anyone has made any custom jigs for the BT3000 that may have been easier or more difficult with a traditional miter setup.
Also, I am interested in adding a router table to whichever option I go with. Ryobi makes a 'snap in' for the BT3000 for $65 but I could also make a custom one myself...
