Burned up my 14yr old cheapo Ryobi table saw today. Sparks flew and smoke came out, it died in a grand way. roflmao

What's a good saw in the $500-$1k range? Need one on a solid stand or cabinet

My suggestion would be look for an older Craftsman 10" saw with a cast iron bed. Make sure it is a belt drive, not a shaft drive. They use universal motors, so if you fry the motor, you can pick up a new motor any where. Mine, one is a 1974 10" Craftsman, the other a1932, it is a 71/2" Craftsman. Only the 1932 is on it's second motor.

I had the same question on a couple Wood working sites a year or so ago, ended up getting the Dewalt 10" DWE7491RS table saw, it was the the most recommended.on almost every site and comparison chart and around $475ish

Easy to use and the rail came set perfect, love the rail dial and lock as well, not a pro, but it is a great saw imo

I happen to have an old heavy as hell belt driven craftsmen, I might end up putting it in the classifieds, I'll update the thread if I do.

Thanks for the input guys! I bought one kind of in the middle of your suggestions. I would have went with the Dewalt if they had it in stock. I decided against a cabinet base so I could get it out of the way when not in use. On sale and got a 15% off coupon! up

That's going to be my Christmas gift from Mom and Dad this year. Been needing one for a while. Lots of projects around the land, from trimming out the cabin and bunkhouse to deer blinds.

My brother got this one. It is really stable and cut true.

It is heavy enough to handle sheets of plywood that will scoot my DeWalt around

In that price range hands down you want the Ridgid 4512. It has a lot of the features of the higher end saws and I believe they go for about $529 right now. And it's belt driven which means it quieter and more powerful than the direct drive saws.

I think you already bought that Ridgid like the one I had for 5 or 6 years. Absolutely no problems with the saw, but I upgraded eventually to the Ridgid TS3650, which is no longer offered, but might be available used. It s considerably better than the table saw Ridgid offers today.

find a delta cast iron table or craftsman cast iron table, either should be less than a grand easy.

both are top notch and commercial quality, I have used the deltas on commercial work and cabinets till I should have fried the motor and it still ran strong, craftsman is barely a second, almost equal.
