UL-Compliant Table Saw. Makita's new portable table saw (2705/2705X1) meets new UL specs requiring that no tools be needed to change the blade guard. In addition to a toolless modular blade guard, the saw has adjustable dual side guards that leave room for the user to measure from the blade to the rip fence, anti-kickback pawls, and a riving knife/spreader. The 15-amp motor delivers 4,800 rpm. Alone, the saw costs $499; with a stand, it's $599. Makita USA, 800/462-5482. www.makitatools.com
