One of the reasons I did not replace the saw earlier was it s portability. I worked in my garage and frequently needed to move it. Have you ever tried to move a large cabinet saw, even with wheels on it?

this is one of the issues with my current space. Our garage is 34 deep but i have 2 cars parked in it. This makes the effective space 14×22 and as such all of my tools need to be on wheels so they can be rolled against a wall when not in use.

Based on the advice of everybody here, I have gone ahead and purchased the delta fence from toolbarn (got it for $197 /w free shipping.)

Upon arrival of the fence, I am going to reconfigure the saw with a working router table kit. The cost of that project will be less than I had originally anticipated.

you’ll be fine with the upgraded fence. you’ll have to drill a couple new holes for the new fence, but it’s easy to do.
