After procrastinating for years about buying a SS table saw, I finally pulled the plug today. I found a slightly used SS 30 inch on CL, without any signs of any usage. New, these saws sells for $1600.00, I got this one for $800.00. My old 1990 Cman TS served me well and I liked to think that my Wood Working skills have grown to a point that I now need a better grade TS! I upgraded the Cman saw by installing the Link Belt/Pulley system, which greatly improve how smooth the saw ran and installed the Delta T2 fence system, which transformed the saw entirely. Additionally I installed two Router Table Inserts in both TS Wings. It wasn’t until I recently installed a new Freud Stack Dado Blade that I realized the Cman saw had reached it limit. The Cman arbor doesn’t allow the Dado Stack to sit on its shaft properly, which results in a rouge cut in the bottom of the Dado groove.
Hopefully, I’ll sell the Cman for around $200.00 and my Delta RAS for another $250.00, which means I would have dramatically improved the overall safety in my little shop for only $350.00, that sounds like a fantanic deal to me. I have 10 other good reasons which contributed to my decision, hopefully I’ll keep all of them!!!!!!!
