Hi all, I'm new to this forum and would like some recommendations for a table saw, a miter saw, and a shop vac that will double as a dust collector. After Katrina, I'm having to replace everything and using this opportunity to finally get back into woodworking. I currently have a small workshop 13' x 19' that I will mainly be working out of until we can build a larger one. I'm looking to make some office furniture, bookshelves, cabinets, etc. I got a pretty good deal on a new Bosch 4000-09 that I picked up the other day at Lowe's and it is still in the box waiting for the weekend but right now I'm second guessing that decision because I don't know if it's hefty enough or accurate enough for the projects I plan on making. While the collapsible stand may be great, the one on display at another Lowe's appears to have some give to it and after looking at it and comparing it to the TS2400 stand I think I know why. The Bosch is more like a single pedastal stand while the Ridgid is a 4 legged table. As for a miter saw, I'm leaning towards the Bosch 10" SCMS or a recon Ridgid 12" SCMS and the Ridgid portable MSUV for which ever one I get. As for the shop vac, don't have a clue. Any insight, experience you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
