Every woodworking area or worksite needs a trusty table saw. This is a saw that can give you quick and easy straight cuts each time. With a table saw, you can tackle different materials and you can also pursue different woodworking projects that you can ever imagine.
I have recently parted with an old table saw but immediately fell in love with an updated power saw model. This time, I did not just purchase the tool because it can make quick and precise cuts. I bought it because it’s portable and compact. My new table is no longer confined to my working area. It is now compact, easy to take anywhere and gives me precise and accurate cuts all the time. I am glad I found this compact table saw.
Looking for the best table saw for my needs was not a walk in the park I am afraid. It took me time to choose between two great brands: the Skilsaw table saw and the DeWalt table saw. These two amazing portable table saws have great features, are ideal for workshop and worksite use.
The most updated Skilsaw table saw is a worm drive saw known as the first brass-geared drive table saw. It will give you top power and torque with its 5.0 horsepower motor. This is compact and portable so you can use it in the field. It has a 25-inch rip capacity and 3- ½ inches depth of material which means you can use this for a variety of materials. It is lightweight and can be transported anywhere, a good value for contractors and carpenters.
Meanwhile, the latest DeWalt table saw is a compact 10-inch job site power tool that has great features like a rack and pinion telescoping fence that will let you make fence adjustments on the fly. It has a 24-inch rip capacity so you can take on different materials with ease. It also portable weighing quite similar to the Skilsaw table saw. And with all its great features, this could be a good upgrade table saw for you.
