Hitachi Hybrid Saw
The latest entry in the growing field of hybrid tablesaws, the Hitachi C10LA, $950, has just about every feature you could want.
Before giving you the details, let's clear up just what hybrid means in a saw: It's a cross between a cabinet saw and a contractor's saw. A hybrid's motor is enclosed within a base, like a cabinet saw, but its trunnions are mounted to the tabletop, like a contractor's saw. The result is less vibration than a contractor's saw and a smaller footprint, but more work to realign the blade, should it need it, than you would have with a cabinet saw. If you only have 120-volt outlets, a hybrid saw is the best type to buy.
The Hitachi C10LA is a left-tilt saw with two cast-iron wings and a 1-1/2-hp motor. The motor pulls 15 amps at 120 volts and 7-1/2 amps at 220 volts. It has a 30-in. capacity right of the blade and 18-in. left of the blade. The fence is easy to align and has replaceable sides. A hopper under the blade connects to a 4-in. port for dust collection. The off switch is very easy to access. Innovative features include a 21-in.-long folding outfeed table, a bevel-tilt scale built into the tabletop and a blade-tilt wheel in front of the cabinet rather than on the side. All in all, it's a very nice machine.

Ever wondered what wood turning is all about? Here are some invaluable information on how to make beautiful items out of wood! That one little strategy from A Course In Wood Turning that I implemented not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. I had never seen anything like it! Now, keep in mind that I had tried a lot of other products up until this point. You name it, I probably tried it! That’s how desperate I was to improve my skills with wood turning.
