Bench Saw vs. Table Saw?

What's the difference between a bench saw and a table saw?

pw1972,

A bench saw is the floor mounted, full size version and a bench saw is a smaller unit without an attached stand.

The bench saw is designed for portablity and small footprint with smaller table top. The table saw has a larger, heavier top and more stability. I provides better cuts as a result.

If you're using the saw at different locations, the bench saw is your likely choice. Otherwise, go with the table saw. You won't be sorry for the upgrade.
