      $200 is not going to get you much saw. There is probably nothing on the market that compares with the Bt3 for less than $500.

        Used, full size contractor saw with a belt drive induction motor. Look for one with the better Exacta-cut or Align-rip fence.

          I had a BT3000 for about a decade, but got a SawStop about 2 years ago. Absolutely love it.

          High quality, very accurate. And best of all no lost fingers. (I did set off the brake by accident, cutting through some particle board that had—unknown to me—an aluminum foil liner on the other side.)

          I won’t mince words. If you are a woodworker and value your digits, get a SawStop. Worth every penny.

            Doctor Jeff....... this is an 8 year old post, but one that gets discussed often. Saw Stop has also been discussed and trash talked quite bit also. It seems that it’s inventor/lawyer person and their antics to make all saw manufacturers incorporate their technology didn’t sit well for people with morals and ethics. Now that’s in the past and the Saw Stop has a place in the market and doesn’t seem to be a danger of putting all conventional saws out of business. The first chance I get I will probably replace my Powermatic 64 table saw with a Contractor Saw Stop. They are probably of equal value and quality. The selling point for me is the safety feature. One bo-bo with the blade could likely cost you more money than the new saw cost. Trying to buy the best cheapest saw isn’t always the cheapest way.

                Budgets, and space are limited (aren't they always?) so I'm looking for the current 'best value in a table saw.' Basically, I'm looking for the saw that filled the whole the BT3K used to fill.

                I know a used BT is always an option, but am worried about parts availability, etc.

                What recommendations does everyone have?
                I recently bought a new Bosch table saw GTS1031 and it's giving high performance results, When I was new in this market I got little bit confused to select good in my budget. After taking reviews I realized that I did select the best table saw with 15 amp motor, 5000 RPM and outstanding cut size! I got full reviews before step to market!
