Buying Tools for beginner: Router, Router Table, Table Saw - Price Matrix Reference
Im planning to get a Router/Table and a table saw this summer (or later). Of course the price is not everything and I usually read tons of reviews, but I though I could share with peoples here, it's far from full proof, I used canadapost to see the prices history. (I also put some Sheds there, Im hoping to see price drop at the end of the season).
I will add other kind of tools from time to time, the idea is to gather data over a long period of time. I already have stuff like Mitre Saw, Circular Saw, Jig Saw, Compressor/Nailgun, Sanders so you wont see a matrix for it from me.

I think I will aim for:
The Ridgid Router if I can get it at 159$ (strong reviews, lift option)
A Table at 79.99$ or something like that.
For the table saw, the CT one have really bad reviews, not sure at all about them.
