Steel city tools table saw - 6 thoughts on “ table saw reviews – sawstop, jet, powermatic and steel city ” butchly september 23, 2013 at 8:21 pm. Hybrid table saws remain a popular category with woodworkers seeking more power and versatility than contractor and benchtop table saws. In short, a hybrid table saw is larger than both the benchtop and contractor style table saws and smaller than the cabinet saw in terms of amperage. If you enjoy arguing on the internet you might appreciate the overly long semantical warfare of this WoodNet thread debating the difference (or lack thereof…) between cabinet saws and hybrids.
The Craftsman 22124 got 24 forum purchase recommendations, more than any other hybrid saw out there.
That said, if you’ve got upwards of $1,000 to drop you should at least consider the Grizzly 1023 (the #1 cheap cabinet saw recommendation by woodworking forum members). None are equipped with a modern riving knife, but the 22124 can be fitted with a BORK aftermarket riving knife. The Delta is an older workhorse with an outboard motor that takes up a bit more space and has a longer belt. We can advise better when you share prices, but I’d guess $400-$650 max as a gross price range. Off the top of my head I believe the Delta and the GI were $600, while the Craftsman was $725 (with the router).
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.
DISCLAIMER: Any posts on LJ are posted by individuals acting in their own right and do not necessarily reflect the views of LJ. To better answer you question I believe it’s worth it to buy a decent saw as long as you use it on a regular basis to justify the cost. I first bought a dewalt dw744 job site saw with a mobile base, around $750 all said and done. A jobsite table saw will be able to address the task, but I would strongly advise against the cheaper ones. Since you’re also looking for ripping performance, make sure you are happy with the rip fence.


I know that getting a quality saw is always advisable and if you have the funds to do so great. Obviously it doesn’t perform like a unisaw or a sawstop but it cuts wood and if you check the fence every time and take the time to make sure everything is set up properly it works. Good Afternoon,Last year I had a similar post, however, I had a large expense pop up and was unable to pull the trigger to get a table saw. The Shop Fox is pretty significant step up and is worth giving some serious thought to, but I wouldn’t pay their asking price. I looked at used table saws for months never finding one that was in my budget, and not to used up.if you can afford the $999 shop fox, I would look seriously at a new Jet saw.
My first inclination is to go toward the shop fox, especially if I can get him to move down on the price. As for price, the 22116 lists new through Sears for $1000, and through Sears Outlet for $663.24 (at scattered locations)- you might be able to negotiate a better price than $799 with that info.
To find the top 10 we gathered hybrid table saw tests, reviews and recommendations of professionals and hobbyists from the leading woodworking publications and forums. I didn’t count them all, but I bet there were TWICE that many recommendations that woodworkers get a cabinet saw instead of a hybrid. You won’t regret getting more saw but you will always regret the underpowered dinky table saw. We very rarely have a table saw on the jobsite, instead relying on the circular saw and straightedge technique.
Cross cutting doesn’t work terribly well because the top is so small but I try to do most of my crosscuts by hand anyway.
It has taken me nearly a full year to save back up to get a saw and here are the options that I am looking at. I am having trouble finding info on this saw as the only thing that comes up when i google it is the craftsman version of the saw. I have the Rockwell model of it with full cast iron wings which this one also looks to have and just wish I had the Biesmeyer fence for it.
Also I’d have to drive a lot further to get the shop fox, the closest is the steel city at about a half hour.
My brother has a Jet, and it tends to bog down considerably when running harder stock through it.


Last weekend I drove 400 mi rt for a Jet JWCS 10, a few little rust spots at the bottom, and surface on the top(all gone now) 4 quality blades, Excalibur fence system, Incra 1000 t-square setup for $350.
Over and over (and over and over and over) woodworkers recommend to each other on forums that they spring for a low-end or used cabinet saw instead of a hybrid. In cases where a saw had multiple thumbs up from magazines we ranked these above saws more popular in the forums.
Granted its about 15-20 years old and is a contractor style, so its still not a great comparison. The table is large and absolutely flat, and blade and fence alignments were spot on, so assembly and set up were pretty easy. This is not always an option for many woodworkers due to space, electric, or cash restrictions. We tend to skew towards forum recommendations as a key indicator for making our recommendations though there are certainly issues of objectivity. Number 1 is the Delta 34-444, it has a 52in fence and attached delta sliding table (34-555). That being said, you can’t beat a quality table saw for accuracy, repeat-ability, and convenience.
But in true brotherly fashion I feel compelled to get something better than what he has, haha. Table saws with consistently good user-owner reviews on forums will suffice (do not go by new product reviews or retailer website buyer reviews).
Also the fence can move so you need to clamp a piece of wood against the fence to prevent it from moving. I was all set to pay that for a contractors saw, but the guy didn’t call me in time or I would have stopped looking. Saw number 3 is the Craftsman Professional 22124, with the bies fence and router table, the seller is also throwing in a porter cable Model 891 router with the saw. The Craftsman is the most expensive (by about $125), but does come with the router, which I could use as I only have a small dewalt trim router.
