The first ever brass-geared worm drive table saw was first developed by Skilsaw to meet the growing needs of woodworkers on the go. Call this a sophisticated portable table saw, the Skilsaw Worm Drive Table Saw is the first ever saw that can be set up anywhere and once you are done, it can be folded and packed away. This foldable and compact table saw has made it possible to cut materials faster even in remote construction sites.

DEWALT’s recent release of three new job site table saws is capped off with the all new DWE7491RS. This 10″ job site table saw with roller stand is their premium offering. We recently also reviewed the DWE7480 and DWE7490X which were released with this saw. The DWE7491RS is very similar to the DWE7490X except that it has a larger rip capacity and a much nicer stand.

DEWALT® table saws are available in both cordless and corded. Our portable table saws are compact for easy transportation between jobsites. They offer a rack and pinion fence system for fast, accurate fence adjustments. Our table saws are lightweight and feature a metal roll cage to ensure they can stand up to a rough jobsite. Tool-free guarding component adjustments make it faster and simpler to adjust as needed. Since the World’s First FLEXVOLT® cordless table saw was introduced, DEWALT has revolutionized the world of cordless construction tools. Every aspect of our table saws are designed to make your job easier.

The DeWalt is a 7 ¼” worm drive circular saw that is lightweight at only 14 pounds. It is light so it’s good for daily use outdoors or in the field. It is made from magnesium that gives you a strong but light saw. This has an extra-wide saw hook that accepts material up to 2- ½ inches wide. This DeWalt circular saw has a tough cord protection system to give you 4 times improved cord jerk protection. Along with its 53-degree bevel capacity which detents at 22.5 degrees and 45 degrees, this is going to be a versatile powerful saw for different applications. it can be used to cut through wood, wood panels, metal, acrylic, plastic, and tile.

I tested both saws and found their performance similar, though thanks to the rolling stand, I was more likely to reach for the DeWalt. If you don’t value the stand, the SKILSAW packs a lot of power in a small form and is the preferred job site saw of several local contractors I know. If you’re a weekend warrior like me, you may value the stand enough to spend the extra money on the DeWalt.

The Dewalt Cordless 8-1/4” Table Saw power switch is located on the front, lower left area of the saw and has a large red stop switch that can also be accessed easily with your knee. The power switch is electronic and the saw operator now has to push a green “on” button as opposed to pulling on the “red” power lever as was the case with older models.  The power switch also has a flip over safety cover that can be secured with a pad lock. The padlock hole diameter requires a ¼” maximum diameter padlock

I only have two minor concerns with this saw but they are so small that this saw still gets a 5 star rating.  DEWALT could step up the game on the dust collection if they offer users an effective way of using the dust port on the blade guard. Maybe they offer an accessory splitter and hose package. My other concern is the plastic parts on the fence where it connects to the table. I suspect those parts could break when they are cold if you remove the fence and toss it in the trailer or back of your truck. Again, these are minor in comparison to the rest of the saw (food for thought on the next design).
Prior to deploying the power loss reset feature there had been many job site horror stories of unattended table saws starting up upon power restoration.  Sometimes this restart caused material damage or personal injury.   This usually happened when the saw operator did not think to turn off the tool before walking away to go restore power. In the meantime, other people have leaned on, temporarily placed tools or even building materials on the saw, a blade spinning disaster waiting to happen.

The DWE7490X is a great table saw that guarantees convenience and flexibility thanks to its scissor stand. It has been exceptionally designed with a stand that makes the job easier when setting it up. Also, it combines portability and power into one very convenient table saw. Unfortunately, some will find the 87 pounds a bit of a stretch in terms of carrying it around.
Performance – The DWE7491RS performs very well. The rack and pinion fence rails are the key to this saws accuracy and overall performance. The fence is easy to adjust and stays parallel to the blade. The unique fence design rides on rails at both the front and back of the saw, eliminating the possibility of fence drift. This saw also comes with a miter gauge for cross-cutting. The miter gauge isn’t all that great but it gets the job done.

Now I am supposed to box it up (an enormously difficult task in itself because how tightly it is packed), somehow pick up a 110lb 4′ x 3′ x 3′ box (with weak cardboard that tears if you use the included handles) on my own to put it into my vehicle, drive to the nearest store (an hour round trip), somehow get a 110lb 4′ x 3′ x 3′ box out of the vehicle, lug it into the store, wait in line to return it, then presumably wait while another one is shipped to me (the local store has none of these in stock).
There are a lot of obvious reasons why the Skilsaw Portable Worm Drive Table Saw is top quality. Foremost, it is the first worm drive table, therefore, all other similar products are just based on this portable table saw. The Skilsaw is a brass-geared worm drive table saw that provides top power for maximum torque with its 5 HP dual-field motor for improved cutting speed. The selling point is its portability and compact design which makes it transportable anywhere.

Accessory Storage – DEWALT clearly made an effort to make it easy and convenient to store the accessories including the blade guard. One of my pet peeves on the job site is asking the crew where they put the guard. Typically it gets removed for some cross cutting or dado’s and then never makes it back on the saw. Having a dedicated storage location for the guard makes that much less likely to happen. There’s a place to store the wrench, guard, riving knife, miter gauge, and the anti-kickback knives.
None of your woodworking projects will go wrong if you have the best table saw for your individual needs. Hopefully, with the above table saw reviews, you now have enough info to find your right fit. Although a comparison between the DWE7480 vs DW745 shows almost the same great features, our top pick is the DW745. Although it is small for some people, it is durable, has good speeds, is powerful, and most importantly, it is budget-friendly.
Hey all. I just got this saw upgrading from few previous model. I thought this is the best potable table saw. I assembled all and I began adjusting blade squareness. I squared on the left side of blade and thought it’s good but guess what, when I put a square on the other side of the blade it was way out!! I said myself NO WAY! Checked few more times but same result! So I put my 4foot level across the table. OMG! It was a cup towards its middle by almost 1/16″!! WTF!! I just could not believe my eyes!! I am a pro carpenter and long time Dewalt lover but now I am sooooo disappointed what I just saw. I’m gonna write Dewalt and see what they say about it.

The legs fold easily with an intuitive mechanism that feels well thought out, and the safety attachments stow away within the unit, reducing its form factor and allowing it to be tucked away in a corner when not in use. However, the unit does weigh 90 pounds, so if you’re going to be loading it in and out of a truck bed several times a day or needing to haul it up and down the stairs where the wheels can’t help you, you may want to look at a lighter job site saw that dispenses with the stand.

What is a fence? How important is it in a table saw? It gives you an option for horizontal or vertical adjustments. A good rip fence should be aligned to the blade at all times. Without a fence, everything will be disgusting. Ensure that it is heavy and that it can glide smoothly across the rails. Also, make sure that the locking mechanism is perfect and convenient.

The latest DeWalt Table Saw is a compact 10-inch job site power saw with a number of great features. First of all, it has a rack and pinion telescoping fence which will let you make fence adjustments easily. This saw has a 24-inch rip capacity so you can use this for a variety of materials. It has an onboard storage system so you can carry tools with ease.

About the setbacks, only a few users have cited that the dado blade is hardly accommodated perfectly and that it features a flat-track gauge instead of a T-track, which might not keep the miter gauge appropriately in place. Other than that, this table saw is popular and it enjoys good reviews. So, if you value efficiency and meticulous works, this is the saw you should get.
The built-in rack and pinion fence system, which acts as a guide for boards that runs parallel to the blade, adjusts by hand and is both easy to use and very accurate. I learned to trust the fence and its measurements once I got the saw set up, and it made my workflow faster knowing I didn’t have to measure everything four times to double-check the DeWalt.
I tested both saws and found their performance similar, though thanks to the rolling stand, I was more likely to reach for the DeWalt. If you don’t value the stand, the SKILSAW packs a lot of power in a small form and is the preferred job site saw of several local contractors I know. If you’re a weekend warrior like me, you may value the stand enough to spend the extra money on the DeWalt.

Further testing showed that the red “Stop” lever was the cause, not the power switch.  After turning on the saw, the red stop lever would drop too hard onto the stop button and turn the saw off.   After conferring with the product manager at Dewalt, it was determined that the red stop lever spring force was too high.  The units we tested was from a “manufacturing sample lot.”  MSL’s are the first time the plant does a big run of the product and Dewalt then has time to refine and make adjustments, before the tool goes to production.
