I have a DeWalt benchtop Tablesaw, the DW744, for a benchtop saw, it has been really good, but, I really want to replace it.
I've been looking around the net, and this is what I've found so far here in Japan.........
To me the Steel City saw is looking fairly good at this point, but honestly, I'd sure like the DeltaSpoke Shave MH110R-30 189,000 yen $1750
Spoke Shave MH110R-50 199,000 yen $1850
Delta Contractor 36-980 124,000 yen $1140
Delta Contractor 36-981 174,000 yen $1600
Delta Contractor 36-982 169,000 yen $1550
Steel City MW35600 119,000 yen $1100
Price is not such a big concern, as we have been informed by our accountant that we have a little problem with my business, you see, I have my own small business, and I've been doing work for the liquor shop and charging for it, stuff like fixing things, or building stuff. The accountant informs us that this is not really OK with the Japanese government, a family member who works for one company, also working for another doing work for the first company, as I'm on salary with the liquor shop........
So, what he has suggested is that I buy tools to cover my labour, and just add the cost of the tool to what ever work I'm doing, this will fly. I'm going to be renovating one of the apartments in one of our older buildings, new floors and walls in the kitchen area, and new kitchen cabinets, plus some wiring, a fairly big job, but right now, due to the walls being damaged from the roof leaking the place is unrentable, so it need fixing, as we are losing about $750 a month on rent (the roof got fixed). I figure the work I'm going to do will be worth the price of a good new tablesaw
I'd love to have th 50" rails, but honestly, they would not fit in my shop, so they are not really an option, the 30" rails will be enough to walk around.
If any of you have one of these saws, I'd like to hear about it.
I'm thinking the "Spoke Shave MH110R-30" at $1750 would be a good choice.........? but I've never heard of this maker?
It is on the Delta Japan homepage, but I don't know anything about....
