Hey Woodworm,
The few 12 inch cabinet saws I’ve seen weigh a ton (pun intended) but most 10 inch saws are much less. No, I have not researched some newer 12 inch saws like the Grizzly’s but I’m certain they weigh hundreds of pounds more than say, a Unisaw, which I was able to get into and out of my basement with a heavy duty refrigerator cart.
I think the weight would be one of the biggest detractors to getting a 12 inch saw.
How much greater depth of cut can you get from a 12 inch? I don’t think it is a full inch more but I could be wrong.

Also, off topic was your avatar originally black and white and facing the other direction (or am I hallucinating?)?
