Table Saws for Home Woodworking Shed

Background

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.

  1. I have at home a lot of tools and equipment from Makita. I can say that I am very pleased and appreciate the amazing work that the Japanese do. This Table Saw is definitely very high quality and I would really like to buy one. I have been looking for such a product for a long time and I can say that my favorite is the Makita MLT100N, without a doubt. It is amazing how the price is so cheap, only $ 679.00 considering that I found on other sites prices in excess of $ 1000. A great advantage is the power of the engine 1500W  that can help you cut almost any material you want. Thank you very much for this informative article.

  4. I’m not a woodworking hobbyist myself as i never got a chance to learn Woodworking, but even so i do appreciate beautiful wood carvings and buy from time to time when i see something i really like.  

    Some of these Table Saws for use in woodworking sheds that you’ve listed here are far better than the saws i’ve come across whenever i have to visit wood carvers or those guys that make or repair furniture in my country.  I really liked how sturdy that last saw looked.  

    That’s the Harvey HW110L.  I Googled it and i was right.  It’s real sturdy.  If i had to buy a saw right now, that’s the one i would spend my money on.
