Looking for suggestions for a new table saw. A cabinet model takes up too much space, looking at the 'hybrid' models. Most I have looked at are in the $1,200 range & that is within my price range. I'm not sold on any model at this point ...

I found a like new Laguna Fusion on Craiglist for almost half price and have been very pleased with it. I was going to order a Grizzly if I hadn't found the Laguna they seem to have a lot for the money.

Unless you are into the sawstop scene and the safety feature than you will not find one like them. But for me I am a Delta man. Most of my big machinery is Delta but that was when Delta made their own tools. They do not now. But the Delta brand is still a good saw. Hybrid saws are basically the same footprint as a contractor saw. I would high suggest stay away from jobsite saws because accurracy is not their thing.

My check list is small but Delta 36-5052 Has a 1-3/4 hp 15 amp motor one of the best in the business. It is left tilt which makes a world of difference because every thing comes off the fence on the right side. easy to make zero clearance throat plates for. Accurate miter slots and easily tuned. More difficult to address dust but can be done. I am not familar with the Delta Hybrid so can not answer there.

You could look at he Ridgid Hybrid. They get high marks.

I have the Rigid contractor and wish I had gotten the Hybrid. The contractor has plenty of power and generous portability but now that I have a larger shop, the Hybrid would offer a better platform and access to options/add-ons.

I'm leaning toward the Delta 36-5052 but will likely hold off until I have time to set it up ... mid July or so.

Don't know if the SawStop Contractor is in your price range but it is a NICE saw.


OK, go ahead and shoot me for bringing it up with that price! :rolleyes: :)
I just got a SawStop cabinet saw (PCS 175). I looked at the SawStop contractor saw and cabinet saw for size. The contractor saw is not that much smaller, if you take into account the motor hanging off the back. After I saw how the SawStop contractor saw would fit in my space, I bought the SawStop cabinet saw. It is still HUGE compared with the jobsite saw it replaced.

Due to size and budget, it would not be suitable for @socdad.

I have the Rigid and have been very happy with it.

I have the rigid granite top. Had it about 12 years now and never a minute's trouble. Too bad they don't make the granite top model any more, but the rigid saw itself has been sterling.
