Table saw?

I am going to buy a table saw soon and I was just wondering what I should buy that is under $600 that can be used in a small space or moved outside?

Have a look at contractor grade table saws. Although they're not made to the same standard as a shop table saw, they're portable and compact. I've looked at them in various stores and once considered purchasing a Dewault (I picked a shop table saw instead as noted in my other reply)

Something like that. I saw another one. For some reason the links tool has been acting up.

I have a radial arm saw and would prefer to get a Chop saw after using a friends chop saw... It so easy to use and readily accurate...

Shopsmith definitely

Have you considered a track saw? I bought one about a year ago and i use it more than the table saw. I got one like this for $250

I bought a Rigid floor mount (not portable) table saw a few years back for a bit less..

this one

Looks like it's now ~$600 at home depot. You might be able to do better with a used saw...idk. I've been pleased overall with its performance but wish I had a 220VAC feed so it had just a little more torque for ripping thicker boards (gotta go slow)

What do your grandfathers suggest? As woodworkers, I'd defer to them in a heartbeat.
