Most woodworkers are aware that handling sheet goods can be difficult with most 10” table saws, and when using single saw blades to cut melamine and laminates, it is difficult to consistently make clean cuts. Commercial shops are able to use large sliding tables with scoring saw blades to make both of these tasks much easier. CWI Woodworking Technologies has recently introduced a very industrial quality series of sliding, scoring table saws which are affordable to the small wood shop. The S4 Stallion Table Saw offers a 48" sliding table stroke with a 4 HP main motor and a 3/4 HP scoring blade motor to make handling sheet goods a dream. Starting at $4499.95 CDN, CWI offers these saws in 4', 5', 8' and 10' versions. Visit CanadianWoodworker.com for more details.

Tool Comparison: Some small shops are so tight on space that a permanently set-up table saw isn’t an option. Portable table saws are often the tool of choice for contractors, but there’s nothing saying small shop enthusiasts can’t use them to their advantage to help in a tight situation.

Contractor Style Table Saws

Tool Purchasing: A "contractor" saw is generally a 10" table saw with an open stand and outboard motor. The motor hangs out the back and drives the arbor with a belt. It is called a "contractor" saw because it can be loaded into a truck for on-site work, although this is a bit of an exaggeration. While a contractor saw is lighter than a full-sized cabinet saw, it can still weigh upwards of 300 pounds. It would take three strong contractors to lift it out of a truck!
