    If you are looking for a portable saw and aren't planning on making cabinets, the Dewalt is hard to beat in its price range. The fence is gear driven on BOTH sides. The scale has a fine line on a clear lens and makes for much more accurate cuts for the average Joe. I built mine into an 8' long table on locking wheels in my garage. The table has a cutout in it for my chop saw also. It also doubles as a work bench when I am not using either saw. The small drill press, bench top belt sander, scroll saw, shop Vac and sanders all live on the bottom level when they aren't being used up top. This was a great way to maximize space in a small work area.

    Quoted from cottonm4:

    Why is both sides important? More accurate?
    Your setup sounds interesting. If you wanted to put up a picture or two I would not complain.

    I can take a shot when I get home. What happens on the cheaper table saw fences is the non-gear driven side binds on whatever is guiding it. Some lock on both sides, but the really crappy ones only lock down on one side. This causes the fence to wobble a bit and not produce square cuts unless you check it each time you move it. Being gear driven on both sides via a single rod keeps the fence square to the blade (provided it was set correctly at the factory). The DeWalt has a simple rack and pinion setup, but seems to work well and hold up. My dad has used and abused one as a contractor for over a decade, and it has held up well.

    I'm in the middle of a project, but this should give you an idea. This is a workbench most of the time. The chop saw goes where the laptop is. I have a drop in plug that will fill that hole when you rip a sheet of plywood. If you don't, the right hand side of thin pieces you are cutting will drop in and catch the hole.

    It is 8' long and 30" wide, made from ripped down sheets of 3/4" birch. You can adjust it to fit your space... 30"is what I could get away with and still hope to squeeze my truck into the garage on occasion.
