So we ended up doing a couple small patios this year after doing a ton of research on here and deciding to venture into it. I enjoyed building them and am driven to become great at it. I ended up renting a chop saw about a dozen times at around $100 a pop. My cutting skills aren't great and was considering a table saw to hopefully be able to make better cuts. I think the stihl 420 or i500 are in the $14-1600 range and the husqvarna 760 around $1700. Not sure what table saw prices are but I think a little more? Would I be better off buying a table saw or chop saw for first saw?
