I am VERY pleased with my R4512. If I had to do it again, I would buy the same saw. I have since purchased an incra LS-TS fence system, and a cast iron router table insert. At this price point, I think it is unbeatable. I would have bought the craftsman model because I like the colors better, but in my area, it ’s 100$ more (the R4512 sells for 499.99 here). For the price it cannot be beat. I have about 1.5 times the price of the entire saw in blades alone, never mind other upgrades.

I will probably upgrade again someday, but not because I need to. I am one of those people that is never really satisfied with anything. Also tools are my toys, and I like getting new toys. The only place I would go from here is PM2000, Unisaw, JET XACTASAW, or SawStop professional.
