Steel City rolls out hybrid table-saw series

17_tools_technique_01Steel City Tool Works has a new series of 10” table saws, sold with a 30” or 50” fence and rail packages and granite or cast-iron table tops.

The new saws — models 35950 and 35955 — are called hybrids, sort of a cross between a contractor and cabinet saw. Their main feature is a cast-iron trunnion mounted to the cabinet, rather than the table top.

“We took the original contractor saw, modified the trunnion assembly by a few pounds of cast iron and made it into a cabinet saw with a built-in mobile base for total portability,” company spokesman Terry Ross says.

The saws also feature a 1-3/4-hp motor, new quick release and adjustable riving knife, magnetic table insert and seamless table top.

“For additional support, there’s a 10” or 32” table extension to the right side of the saw, depending on the model,” says Ross. “And the included fence does not touch the table unless you make the adjustments to do so; it glides on the front and rear rails using nylon studs.”

Model 35950, with a 30” fence and rail package, sells for about $1,000.
