There are many things you will want to consider before purchasing a new table saw for your shop. There are three main types of table saws: (1) the lightweight, inexpensive and portable contractor's saw, (2) the cabinet saw, so-named because it has an enclosed cabinet as opposed to open base and (3) the new breed of so-called "Hybrid" table saws which fill the price gap between contractor's saws and cabinet saws. This discussion will be only concern cabinet saws because, in my experience, nothing less will do for a shop that produces fine woodworking. Smaller saws lack both the accuracy and capacity of cabinet saws.
This second type of table saw is heavier and bigger in size compared to the first one. But still it can be relocated everywhere in work location. With this reason, it is definitely more durable and its work capability is more efficient. This is reasonably priced also has an attached rest or stand but also comes in wheels. This is recommended especially for homeowners who have standard electrical circuits which are needed to handle sufficient power to operate it. This is also certainly for you if you have a tool shack in your home.
The saw should come with a Biesemeyer or similar type fence included in the purchase price. This type of fence locks and aligns itself to a rectangular tube attached to the front of the saw table when you press down on a handle. Fence accuracy and ease of operation will be important every time you touch your table saw and so a cheap fence is no bargain. The fence will probably read measurements along a stick-on measuring tape on the top of the front fence rail tube. You will need to carefully adjust the fence for accuracy. Instructions of how to do this should come with the set-up instructions for the saw.
The motor, trunnions, arbor assembly, and gearing make up the essential mechanical components of the saw. These quality and robustness of these components varies considerably and can greatly impact the durability of the saw, its capacity for cutting heavy stock and its ability to stay in adjustment and hold settings.
A few recent additions to the table saw market combine features of cabinet-base saws and open-base saws. These "hybrid" saws have both a completely enclosed base and legs. The small, enclosed base of the hybrid saw promotes dust collection and limits noise. A popular choice for hobbyist and small professional shops, hybrid table saws are also lighter and more affordable than traditional cabinet table saws.
