Will there be a better deal?
I don’t think so – this is a very hard bargain to beat. There will be more table saw deals to come, that’s for certain. But if you ask me, I think these are the best Dewalt DW745 table saw deals that we’ll see. The deals change year to year. There might be promos on the DWE7480 again this year, but even if so, it’s a higher-priced model.
Here are some historical references, if you’re interested:

In this size saw – saying it has no Dado compatibility (arbor length too short) might be a good thing. Unfortunately table saws are one of those tools that demand respect and that their operators should be trained in their use. An inexpensive table saw (you can buy ones for just over $100 at HF with a coupon) might suggest to untrained amateurs that they can and should join the table saw club. Whatever you may think about the inventor and patent holder for the Sawstop technology – it came to be in good measure because of table saw injuries and accidents – some of which are pretty horrific. Dado sets do not improve saw safety – and in fact I understand that they are banned as being unsafe in the EU.
My first encounter with a table saw was in one of my mother’s uncle’s shop – and he took the time to instruct several nephews in its safe use. My use of the tool in High School Shop (seemingly all but vanished) was more listening and learning some more from the shop teacher – not unlearning bad practices conveyed by my great-uncle. Since those years in the late 50’s and early 60’s, I’ve used various table saws – and dado sets to good effect – and without injury. But that does not mean that I’m smug or complacent about their use. I take every cut that I make seriously – not wanting to mess up the project or myself.
jonathanlewisforcongress.com readers who are new to this tool – and are contemplating buying their first one – would be well served by first getting some training in its safe use. Sorry for the sermon – but I hope it may help.
To me table saws are like band saws in a meat room. Must be dealt with with the utmost respect or you lose body parts.
