Look at the Scheppach range. I bought the small one and found it very good

I uesd to own a Scheppach 4000- single phase 12" panel saw. This was a good powerful saw that was very accurate. It did not have a cast table top which made it seem a bit "tinny". I think newer models of the same machine now have a cast table top.
After a few years I upgraded to a saw/spindle combination by Hammer which is a smaller brother of Felder. Again an excellent, powerful and accurate machine which I would thoroughly recommend, It is much more solid than the Scheppach  with an excellent slidding table but it does need  a jockey wheel/ handle to move in around the workshop - this is available as an extra- £90.00p, from memory.
If you look on the Felder web site they normally have second hand machines available at thier Milton Keynes showroom.
Good luck in your search- Andy
