Re: First Table saw
What are you using the saw for? As jkirk said, most contractor grade saws are junk. They have too little horsepower and poor accuracy. While a cabinet saw will require 220, you will not be disappointed with its performance over any 110 powered saw.
I personally have a Powermatic, but a $2400 saw is probably out of your price range. Have a look at Grizzly and General, both are relatively inexpensive and I've only heard good things about them.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
