Looking to buy a table saw. I grew up in Canada, and so am quite partial to it vs. a bandsaw as my central cutting tool. Space isnt a factor, but I cant do three-phase. I’ve been watching the used market around me (Birmingham) for months but nothing of decent quality has shown up (or has lasted long enough that I was able to put an offer in). Anyway, I’ve settled on either the DWE7491 or the Axminster Craft saw. The plus on the Ax is that is has an induction motor and the heavy cast iron design. The DW7491 apparently has a long arbor and can take a dado stack which I think is pretty unusual for the UK. The Ax is £529, the Dewalt is ~£700. Can anyone sway me one way or the other, or provide a compelling (and available) alternative?
