Partially covered in another thread. Am looking at buying a band or table saw most common use will be to rip down narrow bits of plank that are tricky with a circular hand held. As yet not sure what else but can someone give me some pros and cons for each please.

Thanks

Table saw - no blade wander (unlike small band saws) but will waste more material (thicker kerf).

Band saw - thinner kerf, can handle far taller cuts but poorer surface finish
