Decide the purpose for buying a table saw

The first thing to consider is why you are buying a table saw and for what purpose exactly. You should have these questions in mind :

What power will be accessible at the spot where I wish to place the saw?

Based on my needs, do I require a stationary saw or will I have to invest in a portable saw?

What sort of boards will I saw? Consider length, width and thickness.

How much space can I make available for the table saw?

How much can I afford to spend?

After you’ve uncovered your needs, seek out options while choosing a table saw.

Contractor’s saw– This has more features, is larger in size and is designed to continue in the same spot for a long period.

Ensure the table saw has a precise straight edging, like a quality rank. Check for high spots and dips in each direction and from corner-to-corner. In addition, ensure that the miter windows are parallel to one another.
