Thanks to everyone who gave input on my table-saw search. Although many machines would have been adequate I decided the best value for money option available in the Australia the Laguna - Platinum Series Tablesaw w/ Dovetail Mech Left-tilt. (Official Website.)
Our Platinum Series Tablesaw features a precision ground table top made of premium grade cast iron, heat treated and ground to mirror-like flat surface. It has a 20" x 27" main table with 2 T-slots, fitted with two 10" x 27" cast iron ground wings. Massive widely spaced cabinet mounted trunnions: perfectly machined to high accuracy to support the heavy-duty saw carriage. Minimizes vibration and ensures proper blade alignment. It comes with a robust spindle supported by two precision ball bearings. Triple belt drive system mounted between the two spindle bearings. This tablesaw comes with a powerful oversized 4HP TEFC motor with a standard magnetic safety switch. EZ-Glide T-Square system for accuracy, repeatability, and easy operation. Standard precisely machined miter gauge with adjustable miter bar. It also comes with a 4" dust port with a sloped dust chute inside cabinet for better dust collection. Standard regular insert and dado insert. CSA, UL, CE certified. What sets this machine apart is the saw carriage traveling via dovetail ways. This provides smoother control when raising and lowering the blade as well as minimal vibration and blade deflection.
