New 18V 6 1/2" Hitachi cuts deeper than a 7 1/2" CS

The new Hitachi 18v 6.5" is cordless, brushless, variable speed, and cuts deeper than nearly every 7.5" circular saw!

It has some quirky features but also some very good ones, too. It's definitely...

Lower cost is good as long as quality remains. Easily expanding into a full fledged EZ1 is also excellent for new customers.

Dovetail Jig for EZ 1?

I'm trying to get away from general contracting and remodeling to focus on casework, cabinetry, and furniture making/repair with an emphasis on fine joinery.

I have an Incra LS Super system but...

I was initially put off by the seemingly bare bones design of the Cuz-D but have since changed my mind. I can see that it might not be a saw for a novice but for the serious carpenter and remodeler,...

+1 on the Makita 5008 MAG for depth of cut and power.

Also, the Makita plunge saw is nice enough to make any Festool fan think twice and I think some have used it on a Festool rail.

I did purchase the anti-slip pads for the centipede sawhorse but have yet to use them. I haven't had a problem with the material wanting to move as I cut.

I was intrigued by the System 130 but it just never took off - probably because CNC has taken over in production shops and one man shops like mine don't do enough to justify having one. Similar to...

I think you'll always need a reliable way to square up your material. Aside from being rough and ugly, I don't trust a factory edge. So, it will have to be EZ (or similar) or a table saw. The UEG...
