I'd really like to see milwaukee make a table saw, I know I'm not alone.

Interesting, never crossed my mind, ... Also welcome aboard, what else doesn't Milwaukee make you think might be worthwhile?

It would take very little to rebrand an AEG/Ridgid, good idea!

That would be the smarter easier way but with Milwaukee being on their high horse they'd tease people for three years then reveal it and take another year to put it on the shelf because they'd have to reinvent the wheel

Traditionally they have focused on electrical, plumbing, hvac and mro. I wouldn't be surprised to see one in the future as more tools like nailers, planer, mitre saw etc. have come out recently.

And with their recent track record there's only about a 50% chance it would be great.

Yep. Like that time Dewalt was late to the game with a cordless table saw, drywall screwgun, drywall cutout tool, brushless nailers, brushless multitool, brushless planer, etc. Oh, wait a second...:D

 

I do agree with you though Jimbo, saving three years of R&D to unveil a new battery platform and keeping basics like a brushless circ saw, grinder, and recip behind the new battery paywall...yeesh. Interesting strategy lol. I generally prefer the M18 attitude. I am pumped for cordless tools like 12" mitre and table saw though.

You can't really complain about Dewalt now back when the 20v max line launched it was really slow getting new tools. The one thing that blew my mind that it took so long was getting a 20v finish nailer. You got a cordless miter and 2 framing nailers before the finish nailer. The other thing is no brushless compact impact wrenches. I got into it with Stuart one time about that he's like they need to design and test for all this stuff I was like no all they need to do is design a new anvil for an impact wrench. Hell Jimbo did more engineering that Dewalt has done on compact brushless impact wrenches.

Lol exactly. Can't wait to get a brad nailer from yellow...one day. I guess I actually can wait... 

 

Pretty sure Dewalt sitting so flush with 18v money they weren't in a hurry to update to 20v Max. Then the market passed them by lol

Instead of a saw stop feature, it could have a Bluetooth smartphone app to help you locate your severed finger.

I only buy hilti fingers. Customer service is excellent and I've never had a problem having the broken or severed ones replaced; no questions asked.

I see I am surroundedby dewalt guys. I like alot of stuff dewalt puts out but for me if it's not red, leave it in the shed. I prefer milwaukee over anything else but my garage is a rainbow.  As far as the table saw goes, I have a ridgid cast iron table saw for my shop & my portable is a $250 ryobi. I had 2 dewalt prior to the Ryobi and my guys don't take good enough care of my stuff to keep buying  $600 table saws. The ryobi has surpassed my expectations by a long shot but it's no dewalt.  I am rambling here but if milwaukee would ever bless us with a table saw I would be the first to try it out.
