Editor's Review: Tool Test: 10-in. Cabinet Saws

by Roland Johnson

review date: June 1, 2006

The author looked at 13 popular 3-hp, 220v 10-in. cabinet saws. In addition to evaluating the saws for power and safety, he also tested for tabletop flatness, for runout at the arbor shaft and arbor flange, and for parallelism of the blade to the miter slot. He found that all the saws offered plenty of power, solid rip fences, smooth controls, and flat tabletops. The Bridgewood BW10LTS tied with the Jet for flattest table, and its slanted cabinet floor aids in dust collection. An extension table and legs are optional.

A quiet, vibration-free (it passed the nickel test) saw with great power. Fit and finish are superb, as was the level of protection given the saw in its packaging. Easily assembled. I've been delighted with its peformance and would recommend it highly.
