Can you build and sell enough stuff with your current saw to fund the upgrade? On a fixed income if the money is a big deal then I would say build up a table (sounds like you may have more time than money) and buy a better fence.

On the other hand, you can’t take it with you when you go, so if the added enjoyment of a new saw is worth the money to you then go for it. Ramen noodles are cheap if it comes to that. :)

Someone will be along shortly to tell you to buy a unisaw off of craigslist for $50 and a cup of coffee. You could consider that route as well. I’ve never found the luck with used stuff myself.
