Default TablesawerZ Left hand tilt or Right hand tilt?

Looking to get a table saw for the shop. whats the difference between the two? i know that they angle different directions, but why would you want one over the other? i'm looking a a Delta 5 HP with a Beisemyer fence.

free standing one. not a portable one.

Any ideArs?

You need to get one of each so you can make 90 degree miter joints.

Really it is mostly a matter of comfort which way it tilts. Find which side you will be putting the fence on and look for a tilt away from it. Never liked tilts toward the fence, too easy to get a bad bind.

Oh and finger are only worth about 20K if it is at work, trust me it isn't fun. I teach new employees by making them look at my fingers.

I would prefer left tilt, it is what I have always used and it just seems more natural for a right hander. I would love to have that saw.

I'm actually waiting for them to release their contracctor's saw.

$3k is a bit much for an average homeowner/handyman tablesaw. I'll pay $700 for a contractor's saw that won't eat my hand though.

By the time I own a house and need one, I figure they'll be selling it.

Well this is my saw so it can do a bit of damage.


I have machines that drill 50 holes at a time, get your hand caught in there and you are toast.

Left tilt is technically safter, but I ripped a 8ft section of solid oak once right tilt against a fence/fake fence with no problems on a Delta Classic.

Took some muscle on the push stick though.

<---Big Delta fan.

Ahh Tom, you should have gave me a heads up as I get contractor and military discounts. Could have saved some $$$ unless you ball like that.
