ONE STOP SHOP FOR ALL THINGS DIY

I am very excited to be reviewing these two tools today. When I first started building I had no clue about which table saw would be best fit for my needs, so I was happy to get my hands on this DEWALT 10" compact table saw, and I also have music while reviewing it with this DEWALT Bluetooth Speaker? Sounds like a match made in heaven.
The DEWALT 15-Amp Corded 10 in. Compact Job Site Table Saw Model DW745S box comes packed with the DEWALT 10" table saw including a rip fence and blade guard and a table saw stand.
The DEWALT Bluetooth Speaker comes packed with the one bluetooth speaker and manual.
Other than an easy set-up process, the DEWALT 10" table saw was very easy to operate. I must admit, table saws can be very intimidating, but this compact saw felt really easy and manageable to use.
Because this DEWALT 15-Amp Corded 10 in. Compact Job Site Table Saw was a breeze, I decided to shoot my setup process to show you just how easy it was to set up out of the box. Check out the video below to see.
The fence wasn't completely square out of the box, but with a small technique, I was able to tilt the fence bracket backwards to make it square. the few cuts I made on the saw were precise and accurate, which makes me feel good about having this table saw in my shop. Even though it features a lightweight design, it still has enough weight to provide stability when working with lumber with some weight to it, which is important.
The table saw bade provided with the table saw was pretty decent. As a woodworker, I may change it out for something a little stronger, especially if I'm working with harder woods, but I was pretty satisfied with the blade it came with.
The table saw has a maximum cut depth of 2 1/4" at 45 degrees and 3 1/8" at 90 degrees.
I don't expect much out of bluetooth speakers these days but the one main thing I look for is the ease of the bluetooth connectivity. The bluetooth setup for this speaker was easy as 1,2,3 which makes me satisfied. My shop is small, so this speaker is the perfect size for my shop and with up to 100 ft. of bluetooth connectivity, I see no problems in the future.
I have the larger DEWALT bluetooth speaker and have always loved it, but this compact design has won over my heart. Its much easier to lug around and takes up less space, which for me is golden.
I have tested out a few table saws while building and I have to say one of my favorite parts about this table saw is the fact that it's light and compact. I probably wouldn't use it for bigger sheets of wood, but I will definitely be using it for smaller cuts where a circular saw doesn't make sense.
In my shop, I don't have enough room to have every tool set up and ready to go, so most of the time, I'm lugging my tools around, so having this table saw with a lightweight design just makes it easier on me for transportation both on and off the job and it fits right in a small corner in my shop so it's out of the way.
Rack and Pinion Fence
Accuracy is so important in building and this fence stays parallel to the blade for accuracy. This fence makes me feel better about the precise-ness of my cuts and gives me a good feeling knowing I'm not cutting blind. It's also nice to have a push tool stick nicely located not he fence. I highly recommend using this push stick when operating this saw.
Table Saw Stand
I think the DEWALT Table Stand was a nice little additive to the table saw. It was easy to assemble and doesn't take up a ton of space, which is perfect form little workshop.
Sometimes it's easy to think of compact as less power, but with having both the bigger DEWALT speaker and the smaller version, I must say compact is the way to go.
Cordless or Cord
I like having an option to either operate the bluetooth speaker by battery or AC Cord. Often times my battery dies and I don't have a charged one on hand, so it's nice to still be able to plug it in. Music is a must in the shop.
On the 10" DEWALT Table Saw, It would be nice if the miter gauge was more durable, it seems to be made of plastic and doesn't seem durable over time.
I also noticed that the height adjustment feature on the back legs isn't on the front of the DEWALT 10" table saw and this may cause issues, although I love the feature for uneven work surfaces, I wish it was also on the front. It would be nice to be able to adjust both sides.
Thanks for reading guys. XOXO, Ashley
