I have been trying to read some of the reviews on hybrid table saws but most I read are dated from years ago. I am considering two hybrid saws and I am just trying to get some basci opinion on both saws to make up my mind. I am considering the Dlta Hybrid saw with the Bisesemyer Fence ($1099 at Rockler) I also am considereing the Dewalt Hybrid saw ($1200) Due to certain connections I can get a Dewalt saw for 30% off its normal price.
What I am looking for:
- Dust collection- I currently do not have a collector but I have a shop vac that I use frequently. Do I absolutley need a colector right away?
- Power- they both are rated at 1.75 hp so this is probably a wash
- Fence- is the Bisesemyer name that much better than the stock fence that comes with the DeWalt?
- Miter Gauge- The Dewalt looks like it has a crapy miter gauge unlike the Delta Delux miter gauge.
Can I upgrade- I know with a name like Delta I can buy all sorts of upgrades for the saw (zero clearence inserts, spitters, tennon jigs, etc) I am not sure if some of these things are availble for the Dewalt.
I appreciate the help guys and I apologize for any spelling mistakes
