You might want to hit safety a little harder? Answered
You might even go so far as to mention the Stop Saw. I'm not affiliated, I don't even own one, yes they are expensive but they cost less than the medical bills for a single table-saw incident, and that's not even going into the missing digits that money doesn't restore. If it's never happened to you, count yourself fortunate - while I was in rehab for a tiny nick off the end of my left thumb (carelessness and bad judgement combined, yes, but a Stop Saw would have protected me from my own stupidity), I met dozens of fellow amputees, and the villain in 50% of the cases was a table, most of the rest were industrial band saws (the more time you spend near them, the more likely you are to have a bad-judgement day), and one odd fellow who managed to remove several fingers with a hand-held skill saw. The common thing here: everyone was cutting wood - making things.
If it were only about money, I'd already have a Stop Saw - for me, it's about space in the garage and infrequent use of the woodworking tools, so a small lightweight (read: cheap) table saw is the best fit for my needs at this time. If I had the space, I'd get a bigger safer saw. If I did more woodworking, I'd make the space for the tools.
