This feels like a repeat of last month’s pre-holiday table saw deals post, but there are some changes and new additions worth posting about.
Since there aren’t many details out yet on stationary woodworking-focused table saw deals, I can only focus on portable or jobsite table saws. For any new DIYers or woodworkers reading this, I’d like to remind you that just because these are portable table saws, that doesn’t mean you can’t use them in your home workshop.
Also, portable table saws often come with basic blades. They’re usable, but one of the first things you’ll want to do is upgrade the blade. My current top pick is the same Diablo that I recommend as a good miter saw blade.
First up, here’s the Dewalt DWE7480 compact table saw.
The DW745 is back up to $299 at Amazon, while the DWE7480 dropped to $354 and is eligible for $25 off $100+ savings. At $299 vs. $329, the DWE7480 and is wider rip cutting capacity (24-1/2″) is a better buy.
Update: The DW745 is back to $280.
Even if I were on the budget, this one would be on my shortlist.
Price: $329 after instant discount at checkout
If I wanted the saw and stand, I’d place two orders, one for the saw, and another for the stand plus $21 or more of other eligible tools to bring my order over $100 to take advantage of the $25 off $100+ discount. There are lots of things to choose from.
The DW745S features the very popular DW745, and pairs it with what looks to be the usual folding stand. This combo is a very good buy at $299. If you don’t need the extra rip capacity of the DWE7480, this is a very good buy.
This would be the BEST Dewalt Black Friday table saw deal I’ve ever seen.
BUT, there’s something weird about Home Depot’s product specs. Listings for the DW745, updated in recent years, often mention a rip capacity of 20″. Home Depot lists a max rip capacity of 16″ for this newly listed saw. So either it’s a mistake, or the saw’s rip cutting capacity is shorter than for other DW745 saws currently on the market.
Update: I just heard back – there’s an error in the product description; this DW745S has all the same features and specs as other DW745 saws on the market.
If that’s the case, then you’ll know what was given up for them to be able to bundle a stand with the saw for the same price. And if that’s what happened, this would still be a good deal.

There’s going to be a Ridgid table saw on sale, but NOT THIS MODEL. It looks very similar, but instead of a built-in handle and wheels, it’s going to be bundled with a folding stand.
It’s not up on Home Depot’s webpage yet, but I’ve included a link to the page for the model shown here. Given the many visual similarities between the saw in the sales flyer and this former holiday season special, I’d say that everything is the same, except for the bottom of the roll cage and the swap of the built-in mobility features for an included stand.
If you like the model shown here, it’s been on sale for $249, but doesn’t look to be available any more. It could be temporary.

Hitachi’s newest table saw is a solid option. It’ll be on sale at Acme Tools and Lowes for $299. It features a rack and pinion fence system and roller stand.
Reviews are good so far. It doesn’t seem to be quite at Dewalt quality, but it’s going to be on sale for a couple of hundred dollars less.
I recently posted about the new Skilsaw heavy duty worm drive saw and its large roller stand. Buy the table saw, get a free Skilsaw circular saw. This deal is live now.

The Dewalt DWE7491RS portable table saw with roller stand, an EXCELLENT table saw, is on sale for $499. The deal is live at Amazon now, and coming soon to Acme Tool.
I’ve had a review sample of this saw in the workshop for some time, and it’s a lovely tool. I’m still hunting for something negative to say about it.
The Porter Cable PCX362010 table saw is as basic a table saw as you can get. I stopped by a nearby Lowes store, and there were dozens of these saws stacked up and nearly ready to go, suggesting they’re going to be a popular buy. I also checked Lowes.com reviews, which range from “not bad for the price,” to “worked for 3 weekends.”

I don’t think I have ever used Bosch’s 4100-09 table saw, which is bundled with a gravity-rise stand, but I know it to be one of the most highly regarded portable jobsite table saws on the market.
It is currently $499 at a lot of retailers, and I don’t recall seeing it ever sell for much lower.
But, as part of Acme Tools’ current promos, use coupon code NOEXCLUSIONS to take $54.89 off the price. Final price after coupon? $444.11. Shipping is free on $199+ orders.
Price: $444.11 after coupon
Buy the SkilSaw SPT70WT-22 worm drive table saw, get a free saw stand! The stand will automatically be added to your cart when you add the table saw. The one I linked to is the version that’s bundled with a Diablo blade. The other version is also eligible for the same offer, but it’s being sold at the same price. For the same price, take the blade upgrade.
Price: $379 with free shipping

Coupon SKILSAW2017 should take an extra $20 off. Thanks, Eric!
Your Deal Finds?
These are all the Black Friday 2017 table saw deals that I could find, and I did dig deep and hard to find them. But, I’m sure there will be another deal or two worth mentioning.
If you find another table saw deal, either for Black Friday or the holiday 2017 shopping season in general, please let us know!
And if you’re in the market for a new portable table saw, I’m curious to hear about which one you’re going for.
The Dewalt DWE7480XA table saw bundle, featuring the DWE7480 table saw and matching stand, was a “deal of the day” back in April. The sale price, at the time, was $335.
I would not be surprised to see this return as a Black Friday or holiday season deal of the day.
The current price is $429.
