So I'm getting ready to setup shop in my garage, my goal is to be able to tackle home projects, woodworking projects, and speaker building projects with relative ease. But I also need to have room to park at least one car and store my trash and recycle cans as well. I have a standard sized 2 car garage, so it's roomy, but not huge. So I need some ideas, I'm debating on installing a permanent work bench, or building a mobile workstation on casters that includes a table saw, router table, and storage all in one. This would be handy but may end up taking up more real estate in the end. Then there's the great debate over what table saw to get, I'm looking at the Ridgid, Dewalt, and Bosch saws in the $450 - $550 range, they all seem to have the same basic capabilities, just not sure what the clear winner is out of the 3. I guess it depends on if I decide to do the workstation, or separate permanent bench. The Ridgid and Bosch have the folding bases with wheels, the Dewalt doesn't. But the Dewalt has about the same rip capacity in a smaller package, and the rack and pinion fence I kinda like. So the Dewalt may be a better choice if I do a combo saw/ bench/ storage/ router table, but might be a pain to setup/store if I don't. What do you guys think? Any advice on the saws, and the pros/cons of the different setups?
