If you are thinking of buying a table saw for your home woodworking shed, then you have come to the right page. The table saw is the most used modern tool in the wood work shed. If you are a beginner, you could start out with any of the following table saws. The cost of small table saws can range between $199 with the Ozito and $900 with Dewalt and Makita. Larger table saws are available and are much more expensive.
Some thought into your purchase is needed to keep yourself safe and sound. This list is not all inclusive. I believe there is a Metabo, Hitachi and Milwaukee table saws suitable for a home based work shops too. I have listed the 5 main units that people buy in Australia. I have added in a list from Amazon as well.
For the beginner to intermediate wood worker and for those smaller jobs, these table saws are sufficient. Its important to look at the features each unit offers. Its safe to say its a safe bet to start with a good combination blade. For those units on legs, you need to ask are they adjustable to waist height for safety reasons.
Sadly, the cheaper units are very loud and accessorized with cheap plastic parts, and unstable legs. I’ve had my neighbor complain about the noise and I had to make some changes. Have a look around for table saws sale.
