My last saw had the Vega 52”. I started wondering if I really need a 52”. Most of my cuts are 24” or less. How much would I really miss the extra capacity??

I think you just answered your own question :)

I have a 50” Biesemeyer for my saw, but haven’t installed it due to a current space constraint. Been happily using the stock Jet-lock fence that came on it. For large sheet goods, it’s much easier to rip them with a circular saw to rough dimensions and then do the final cuts on the TS. Of course, YMMV… some people could not get by with anything less, some people would never need the capacity. Depends on what you do.
