I'm looking out for a small table saw precision is important. I realise a cast iron table is ideal but size and cost is a major consideration. The ability to rip sheet material is NOT what I'm envisioning doing! Any thoughts?
I have a Dewalt DW 745. It's a 'site saw' and a little rough and ready - and a little noisy. It is, however, pretty accurate with a good fence. It's also not too expensive. I've also heard good things about the Bosch GTS 10 XC... I think Axminster do a reasonable cast iron-topped saw at around the same price point... Induction motor so maybe a little quieter.....
I have just bought a proton table saw, link below. The blade supplied is 1.6mm , it has a cut depth of 22m and I am finding it really useful. It can also be fitted with a 50mm x 0.5mm blade which is perfect for cutting fret slots. Certainly cut down how much I use my bandsaw.

walkingdecay: The cue words for our dogs to let go are, "Go Yoko." This often puzzles owners whose dogs have been to us for training, but I like to think they are carrying on the tradition.

walkingdecay: Hah! That wouldn't work with our akitas anyway, because of one of the breed's weird characteristics is that they won't fetch. They'll invent all sorts of ball games to play solo but expect them to retrieve and they'll give you a look that says, "Why?"

curmudgeon: Tomorrow our neighbours finally leave! Whoopee! And taking their West highland terrier with them! Dogs are just dogs right? Dog owners who have NO idea as to how to treat or understand dogs are *****

walkingdecay: A woman posts about what she perceives as sexism in a Mister Man book on her social media feed and that becomes "Mister Men book in sexism row" in The Daily Heil. Someone needs a sense of proportion - and it's not the woman.

walkingdecay: Another akita quirk, as it happens. I've had to take the squeak out of toys because the "crying" upsets the bitches, who are fanatical mums. Akita lore has it that Japanese farmers trusted them with kids to the extent they'd leave them as babysitters.

curmudgeon: We've had this strange creature for seven days! We weighed it - 12lbs! and he's 40 inches long - (longer than the Eastman parlour I just bought!) Hello little kitty (not) - and he doesn't like guitars - tough!

walkingdecay: I like big domestic cats. They can be tough guys but I remember from my youth (which is closer to me than yesterday, it sometimes seems) that it was the little farm cats you needed to be most wary of. Maybe the big ones just concentrate on getting bigger.

walkingdecay: Oh I expect so. The conversations on there tend to run to things like organic veg and wicker coffins. Come to think of it, I'd like to be composted.
