Table Saw How To Choose best tips

Selecting your first table saw can be very frustrating due to the huge selection available to the consumer today. Table Saws come in all shapes, sizes and are designed for a variety of applications. Buying your first table saw can be a nail biting experience, with a few tips, anyone can choose a table saw that will give them many years of reliable service. Here are some tips on choosing your first table saw.
Fence: The fence is the sliding component of the table saw. The fence is used when you feed the wood onto the table and into the saw. The quality of the fence will factor in on the final cost of the table saw. The better quality of the fence that comes with the saw, the higher the price. Most contractor saws have fair quality fences, but not all. For normal applications, a fair quality fence will be more than enough for most applications and certainly good enough for the occasional user. Average quality fences are okay for beginners and weekend handy men, but will lack the quality that a cabinet maker needs. You have plenty of choices in third party fences so don't loose sleep if your saw comes with an average fence.
Tilt: Most saws tilt for precision cutting. Table saws tilt right or left. Many years ago, table saws only came with a right tilt with the exception of some professional cabinet models. These days, you can get right or left tilting table saws. Right tilts are easier cutting precision angles and preferred by many. Right tilt saws are the most popular and come with more accessories than left tilt table saws.
Miter gauge: Table saws come with something called mitre gauges. There are two slots that are machined into the cast iron tabletop where the mitre gauge is inserted. This is where you guide the wood. Just as with the the tabletop, the mitre gauge that comes with the saw are of average quality. You can buy better mitre gauges than what come with the table saw. Try inserting the mitre gauge into the slots and check to see how snug they fit. Do not choose one with a loose fit. You want one that fits snug.
