Rip capacity is a jargony-sounding term that refers to the size of the piece you can cut. Bigger saws tend to—ta-da—have the ability to cut larger pieces of wood. This can be important because woodworking often involves using large pieces of wood used either in remodeling homes or building new additions. If you need the flexibility of handling large pieces of wood, you’ll want to give serious consideration to the rip capacity of the saws you’re looking at because it’ll come into play at some point.

First off, consider how often you’ll put your table saw to use. If you work in the fields of contracting or carpentry, there’s a chance you’ll be using your new machine pretty often—so you may as well invest in a more expensive, heavy-duty table saw that’s sure to last longer than the average model. On the other hand, hobbyists and weekend woodworkers won’t need a pricey piece of machinery—a more compact and inexpensive model should do just fine, especially if you’re only working on smaller projects like birdhouses and DIY wooden models.
