Get the T2 or T3 fence, unless you really need over 4’ to the right of the blade(most of the time….no)

My first saw was a 113, and I upgraded it with a 52” Biesemeyer and it would cut just about everything that I threw at it. I did a lot of casework, so I needed the 52” but honestly 36” would be good for most people.

There will be a lot of naysayers, but do what’s best for you and your budget. Spend the money you save on other essential tools and wood.
