... table saw. So, what were you all thinkin'? Bunch of sickos. 
 
Anyway, hopefully, it will arrive here within the next two to four weeks. I found one that was junk here, for $400 USD. I wasn't about to buy that. Not to mention, it was much smaller than a 10" table saw.

 

This one comes complete with some kind of laser to help you line up cuts? Don't know much about wood working tools. But, I'm pretty sure I can figure a table saw out. Anyway, it comes complete with both course (24 teeth) and fine (48 teeth) tooth blades. Just need to get a Dado blade shipped over from somewhere. Shipped from Germany.

Next, I will have to buy a shop vac to connect to it, so it doesn't blow saw dust and chips all over the place.

You should have seen the saw they wanted $400 for, at the local tool shop. By far, this is a much better deal.

Paul,

 

I'm huge into woodworking. The first thing I noticed with what looks like a very nice table saw is that is doesn't have a 'feed through' for longer boards, sheets of plywood, etc. If you'll just be working with small pieces, no need, but.... If you don't mind me asking, what are the electrical specs on that? Is that a German maker? I'm hoping to do the same thing. Thanks.

I will be, mostly, working with smaller wood. Some will be plywood, with other being planks. Thinking about a welded steel table with rollers. Here are examples of projects I want to build:

I still need to buy a plunge router and bits.  Another tool will be a Circular Saw.

Now that's kinda scary.  Nothing mentioned in the specs about what voltage this saw runs on?  I'm pretty sure it will need more than a couple of D cells...

If you end up here (BTB), you'd be welcome to use it.

I have used plenty table saws in the past, but never owned one. They can be a very precise cutting tool.
