How many folks out there have job site style saws and feel that they are adequate for making things like beekeeping equipment etc.
I have been Jonesing for a Bosche work site saw (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...YAMN2YRJRGZ9SH) for a while, but in reality it's probably 450+ bucks I don't really need to spend given what I'd be using it for. Then I go to Lowe's or Home Depot and I see these cheap little hundred dollar plastic gizmos and wonder if perhaps this is all I need to size pine boards, cut some frame rests , and maybe make some one third to one half length frames for some mini nucs. other than that I think are really talking about things like making birdhouses etc., unless I build a storage shed. I doubt I would ever give in to finish carpentry, I barely have enough time for the bees let alone destroying some very nice hardwood in an attempt to make an heirloom.
I know the general tool purchasing dogma is get the best to you possibly can for the job because the joy of a low price doesn't last as long as the pain and anguish in buying a cheap tool or something to that effect. I understand that, I believe it, but at the same token there is a fairly decent chance that I'll build myself a small number of mini nucs and and that in itself may end my fascination with woodworking.
So here is the question: if you have less than $200 to spend which tablesaw would you buy.
