Tool Test: 10-in. Cabinet Saws

Most haven't changed much in a generation, but a few are breaking new ground in safety and convenience


What makes a cabinet saw stand out from the crowd? Roland Johnson reviewed 13 popular 10-in. cabinet saws and found notable differences in safety features such as riving knives, blade guards and easy-access switches; price, which ranges from just under $1,000 to more than $3,000; and convenience. Of course, he tested performance too. But safety was the most significant area of difference, and three models took the lead in that category.
