I’m looking at replacing a benchtop and getting into some more serious furniture work. I’m not too concerned about having the latest, greatest safety devices on things like tablesaws. There are a few schools of thought on buying tools, but most either fall into the 1)Buy what you can afford or 2)Buy the best schools of thought. I wouldn’t say that the guards or riving knives are any better on the G0715P than on the R4512 (or Cman 21833), but the fence on the G0715P is undoubtedly nicer IMO. In general, riving knives are a more elegant solution to a splitter, but both essentially perform the same task when they’re in place. Once aligned and fitted with a good blade, all are capable of good cuts, but be aware that all three of the above models have had similar alignment problems (likely due to the similarity of the designs).
I have read the forums enough without posting that I have heard knotscott is sort of a resident guru on the table saw, so I definitely appreciate the input.
A good used saw is often the best way to get the most for your money, but it’s an unreliable market. If you don’t rip long solid wood boards on the table sawa riving knife is basically not needed.
What I am saying is that the table saw is not the ideal tool for every linear wood cut and indeed safety problemsand accidents often arise from not understanding this.
I would love to start out with a super solid table saw I might never need to replace, but I better be sure I’m all-in on this hobby first.


I’m in the same boat you are as far as price range in looking for a table saw and I have been trying to decide for well over 3 months. I have the ridgid 3650, they do not make them any more, but as a craigs list item you might be able to pick one up for 2 0r 3 hundred bucks.
I just checked out the price on the r4512 Ridgid table saw and it seems until June 20th you could get it for about $500 that’s with tax (if you pick it up yourself). I think that I am going to have to take the chance on the Ridgid and hope it aligns, it seems like a good value for a newbie. Before you pick up those woodworking tools, take the time to ensure your safety in the shop! If you are selling your work, then you have entered a woodworking dimension with added complexity and stress.

Also, it sounds like instead of waiting a few years, I’d be better served acquiring some additional and upgraded tools sooner rather than later. To me it seems that the Craftsman 22116 seems to be the one that doesn’t worry me when it comes to having any alignment problems (but you never know) and only at the right price. I know that a lot of brands have the same manufacturer, is that the case with the r4512 and any of the CM saws? I have watched craigslist and some auction sites for almost a year, but haven’t really found the right deal in the right location.


I also wonder if the true hybrids, like the G0715P, have even better guards or riving knives.
If you feel there is a better option in my price range, I’d love to hear it, but it seems that there is only so much you can get for 500 or so bucks. I won’t rule out an 800-900 saw quite yet, but likely I will go with something like the r4512 for now. For that price I can pick up a Dewalt 734 planer too for under $1000, or a Grizzly Go555lx for about $1100. I just don’t want to over-purchase on a hobby that my wife may or may not believe I can turn into a career. All things considered, the Ridgid and it’s price range seems maybe the best for me and my hobby. The steel city hybrid saws seem okay too though I’m not sure I can see myself spending $900 give or take on a saw that has less power (13 amps steel city Hybrids) plus less fence when I could spend the same on the craftsman 22116 which has more power, a better fence and cabinet mounted trunnions.
