The larger the blade, the larger the stock that can be cut. A 10-inch blade is the size used most commonly in home workshops. Another important factor is the size of the table top. Large stock, such as plywood, is easier to cut on a big surface. However, larger table saws are also more expensive and less portable.
In mills and other industrial settings, self-feed or power table saws are equipped with rollers or a conveyor system to hold the lumber and force-feed it into the saw blade.
