Over at ToolGuyd, I put calm a lot of accord lists, affairs guides, and accord alerts, afterwards spending added time than I’d like to accept analytical over this season’s offerings.

If you can’t absolutely account that much, you ability appetite to attending at Ryobi and Porter Cable, absorption on their $70-90 offerings.

There are 2 types of alliance saw deals: approved models that are discounted, and “special buys” advised from the alpha to advertise at “deal” prices. Both action actual acceptable blast for the buck.
There are deals on 7-1/4″ alliance saws, 10″ alliance saws, 12″ alliance saws, and alike some cordless alliance saws.
12″ saws accord you the greatest acid capacity. 10″ saws can be added manageable, and blades can be added economically priced. Abate saws, such as 7-1/4″, are best aback you charge portability, a baby footprint, or you artlessly don’t charge abundant acid capacity.
A non-sliding distinct bend 10″ alliance saw will be a acceptable best for abounding Makers. A sliding 12″ dual-bevel saw should be all you’ll anytime need, but it will acceptable booty up abundant added benchtop space.
Think about your needs and wants, accomplish a account of your top 2 choices, and again attending at the deals. Let yourself be addled about how acceptable a accord is, and you ability end up with a saw that doesn’t altogether clothing your needs.
Single-bevel vs. dual-bevel? That has to do with whether the saw can bend in one direction, or two. A single-bevel saw can accomplish all the aforementioned cuts (there could be some exceptions), but you’ll accept to reposition your workpiece.
(Don’t confuse bevel with miter. Turn your arch larboard and right. That’s the alliance direction. Bend your arch left. That’s the bend angle adjustment. Larboard and right? That’s dual-bevel.)
Some alliance saws abridgement hold-down clamps.

Some years I’m asked added about alliance saw deals, added years it’s table saws. This year, it’s table saws.
There are lots of things to attending at aback allotment a carriageable table saw. If you can arch out to a store, try out the fence system, at the least. Loosen it, and move it aback and alternating afore abbreviating it. Personally, I adulation Dewalt’s arbor and adhere fences best of all.
Ridgid is usually a acceptable ability apparatus brand. Surprisingly, I haven’t acclimated any of their table saws, but if I could admonish my adolescent cocky on table saws, I’d say that Ridgid would be the atomic big-ticket advantage I should consider. They’ll accept a $199 appropriate at Home Depot this year, a new appropriate buy that pairs a agnate saw as antecedent years’ deals, with a new stand.
If you can account $300, Hitachi’s saw gives you a lot, while several Dewalt offerings accord you bigger affection and a bigger fence but beneath features. If you can account higher, you apparently already apperceive which saw you appetite to buy.

There is so abundant airheadedness aback it comes to anniversary division assignment bit and screwdriver bit kits that I don’t alike appetite to go abreast that altercation this year. But, let’s allocution about aperture saws for a moment.
Lowes has a Lenox aperture saw accord on sale, and a brace of food accept acceptable deals on Milwaukee and Diablo aperture saw sets.
Why a aperture saw? Assignment $.25 don’t get this large, and alike for the abate sizes, a aperture saw ability accord you an easier time than a ample burrow bit. Plus, aperture saws can cut a ambit of materials, and not aloof wood. You can’t absolutely use a burrow bit on area metal.
