looking for a recommendation for a table saw.

Don't want a neap & chasty one but don't want to spend over £1k & it has to be kinda portable so I can wheel it out of the outhouse/shed to use it.

How many trespassers have you got to dispose of?

Define cheap and nasty - it depends on what you intend to use it for - cabinet making and fine furniture, or building rabbit hutches!

I have one I got from ALDI for £50 which sits on a table. the blade is a TCT which I purchased separately (and had an adaptor made) and the only real drawback is the area and flatness of the bed - the fence and guides don't glide smoothly over it for fine work if the wood is of any length.
A cast bed is far more accurate, but less portable and more expensive.

Try ebay.  I just gave away a Coronet Major combination saw bed, planer/thicknesser lathe, morticer because I could not afford to bring it back from France and store it.
While looking to find a value, I found several for between £300 and £600. With a bit of ingenuity, it could be made portable.

(Catching up...)

Cut my teeth on Husky 262's followed by the 266 & still have one of the latter that's still going strong after more than 30 years.

 

I ended up buying one of these as a table saw: http://www.axminster.co.uk/axminster-hobby-series-ts-250m-2-table-saw-ax943888

I have one of those in storage at work.

I had an adaptor made to take a larger Centre saw blade because I had two TCT blades which given much better cut.
