I am looking at getting a saw, and this has helped, but still leaves a lot of confusion. most of my work would be diy projects, maybe shelving, who really know. The main reason for buying one, is I am looking to build some SUP’s. (Stand Up Paddle boards) I will be ripping 10-12′ 1/4″ strips that maybe in the 3/8″ up to 3″ range, along with re-sawing some wider planks into the 1/4″ thick, 5-6″ wide plank’s. I have been going back and forth on the Dewalt dwe7491rs vs the Delta 36-725t2 vs the comparable Ridgid. Any thoughts? the Dewalt would be nice as it packs away in a smaller space, but the delta/ridgid would also be easily moved out of the way. with the Dewalt, I would probably end up making an outfeed bench. price points they are all similar, I am just not sure what would be the best for this type of work. thanks for any input.

Dewalt DCS7485T1 is one of the table saws which the users prefer. The model is well recognised in the market with 8 ¼ inch blade size. The blade can cut it to a size of 2 ½ inch when placed at 90 degrees and 1 ¾ inch when placed at 45 degrees. The cut size matters to most professionals as with deep cuts lots of effort is put in which can lead to fatigue.

Our review of DeWalt table saws focused on two models that are very, very similar and one that harkens great advancements in the tool line that sadly has yet to fully come to fruition. The DWE7491RS and DW745 are very similar. The 7491 is slightly more powerful but also slightly heavier and both have miter gauges that should be replaced when purchasing the saws themselves. But the differences are slight enough that our choice of top pick comes down to the 7491’s larger rip capacity. That’s something that won’t affect a lot of people very often, so if your dollars are tight, you can go with a better for-dollar value with the DW745.

But it’s a journey that’s still in progress. The DCS7485B is lightweight and portable, and it’s also very quiet. What it can’t do is hard work for an extended period. The battery just isn’t there and the trade-off for 60 volts of power limits the range of what you can legitimately expect to cut through. It’s possible to upgrade the battery, but our reviews are based on what comes inside the box. And what comes inside the box with this one has a good deal of promise for only a little bit of delivery.

In layman’s terms, a miter gauge is a device that allows users to set up the angle of the material being cut with a table saw. And while most table saws come with built-in miter gauges, others, well, don’t—which is why the Kreg KMS7102 Table Saw Precision Miter Gauge System is invaluable. Whether you’re replacing an old, worn-out gauge or putting it to use in conjunction with a table saw that didn’t come with its own proprietary gauge, the KMS7102 is specially designed with precision in mind. After all, accuracy is vital to successful woodwork.

Thank you for reviewing these saws, one important thing all should do before making the purchase, after reading these reviews. Once you’ve selected a saw you like from this review, look at consumer reviews of the saw you’re leaning towards buying to see what experience people have had over time using the saw. To review a saw out of the box is fine for it’s features etc., how it performs over time is also very important. There is one other, service from the manufacturer. Is the manufacturer in the habit of making models obsolete, and therefore parts can no longer be available, such as the Ridgid saw I purchased. Food for thought.
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.

The built-in stand sets this saw apart from competitors since it is actually quite stable out of the box and doesn’t require a custom stand or supports to combat vibration, which are often necessary with cheaper and lighter units. DeWalt sells a nearly identical saw with a less robust stand, and after viewing it in a big box store, I was glad to have this one.

You can’t comparison shop for anything without looking at price at some point. Here’s where you can really apply some hard-nosed thinking. How much are you willing to pay for this feature, or that much rip capacity, or that much power? You might think that your budget requires that you buy the absolute rock-bottom least expensive saw on the market, but when you start comparing prices you might find that it doesn’t cost all that much to get a little more power or more peace of mind through a slightly better warranty. And, of course, prices change all the time. So if you don’t find what you want at the price you want today, it might be there tomorrow. Or, you can also look to refurbished models or other deals.

Blades come in various types and sizes. There are rip blades for cutting along the wood grains, hollow ground blades ideal for various materials, crosscut blades suitable for smooth and precise cuts, and combination blades for that double up as blades for crosscutting and ripping. Depending on what you do the most, it’s necessary to choose the right blade type and size that will get the job done with the most ease.

The DeWalt doesn’t go above and beyond here but has some standard safety equipment as part of its Site-Pro Guarding System. The Blade Guard Assembly is a standard clear plastic set of guards that allows the wood to be fed to the blade but shields you from putting hands on the exposed blade in a slip. The guards will lock in a raised position when you need to see the blade—for example, when adjusting the blade height—which lessens the temptation to remove this safety feature when it’s in your way.


Another excellent choice for the hobbyist or at-home handyman, the SKIL 3410-02 10-Inch Table Saw is a great value, giving you a durable build and quality performance at a wallet-friendly price. It doesn’t have the same brand recognition as some of the more expensive options on this list, but reviewers love this machine and say that it’s perfect for woodworking and DIY projects.
