I had a 52” delta Unifence which I cut to approximately 36” and never regretted it. Unless you have large outfeed table and infeed and side support, its really tough to slide a 4×8 sheet of plywood over that table and tougher to get a straight cut without binding or wandering. Which is why sliders were invented, which is why track saws are so useful as well as vertical saws. I’ve seen a lot of commercial cabinet shops where the principal panel saw is a 10 or 12” saw with really big permanently fixed out feed and side tables. That works really well but takes a lot of floor space.
