Time to buy a Dewalt again.....

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

As far as table saws go I have to get one that's compact so I can store it inside and portable.  After researching a lot on youtube reviews and different brands and models.  I think out of all of them the Dewalt 8 /14 inch will probably wind up being the better option and affordable in my case to buy out right.  I've seen a lot of good reviews on it seems like it would be worth the money in the long run and on a budget.  Its a bit over what I wanted to spend but better safe than sorry.

So decision made item bought.  I think on a budget I got a decent end of the deal.  So the saw typically runs for 399 plus taxes or state taxes where ever your at so probably around 460 total.  How ever with the lovely Veterans discount home depot was I got it for a steel. The saw wound up coming out to 392.  Basically took all the taxes off of it so I got it for under 400 dollars at home depot so win win on that.  I did read a lot of the reviews before buying it and youtubes as well.  Over all seems like it will be a decent saw for what I need.

Looks like a good choice.  Now for a good blade - I have my eye on this one.  It's cheaper than the recent Amazon price too.

For that kind of $$, I'd go for the Tenryu. https://www.amazon.com/Tenryu-RS-25524-U-Carbide-Tipped-Blade/dp/B000G1MSLW

A wonderful blade IMHO, Forest has a good solid market following, but I think they are overpriced.
