I had a CL Delta 14” from the 50s that was very underpowered for anything but light work… went to the Grizzly Tent sale last year and chanced onto a G0513X2 from the “scratch and dent” area – it turned out there was lot of work that was needed, but I enjoyed the repair process, learned a lot about the saw, and this thing is a tank! (Just to show I’m not a Grizzly troll, I also bought and quickly resold the G0458 drum sander as it just didn’t work for me). The G0513X2 was more saw than I was shopping for, but I am so glad I bought it. The tall fence and a 3/4” Wood Mizer makes resawing a pleasure, and a 3/8” (can’t remember brand) does smaller turns with no drama. I have two 4” hoses connected, but there is still what I consider too much sawdust thrown around. In any case, I wholeheartedly recommend this saw.
