I have been very happy with my Rigid TS3650 10" table saw. It has a 36" rip capacity and the fence is extremely accurate. I am just a weekend remodeler/woodworker but have made numerous projects with this and feel it is a very good investemnt for the woodworker on a budget, mine cost me $550 a year and a half ago. It comes on a portable base, although I have mine up on blocks with an outfeed table located behind the saw so I can cut 4 x 8 sheets without bothering my wife!!
I would recommend this saw to a first time table saw owner.
