I just heard back from SawStop. Upgrading a PCS 1.75 to a 3hp will cost about $500 and is labor intensive. He said when you consider the 3hp models include a dust collection blade guard worth $139, there is only about $300 difference between a 1.75 and a 3hp. So my choice is now really between a SS Contractor saw with a 36” T-Guide(that mightttt serve me from now on) or a full-blown PCS 3hp with a 56”T-guide … a difference of about $1200. Hmmm ?

Oh well … I guess it will be a skill saw with a good straight edge until I pull the trigger for the PCS 3hp … unless I see a deal on CL for a good priced Contractor SS. Ha !

Thanks all !
