Thanks for the comments.

As I noted, when I decided to upgrade my fence, I had a rather tough time sorting out all of the advice and choices out there. So, I wanted to post just in case someone else would get inspiration, whatever path is taken.

I’ve had this saw since new, so there’s a bit of an emotional attachment to it – for better or worse. And, I’ve never had a dedicated shop space, so larger-base saws have always been out of the question. I have to say that I have looked at the folding-style contractor saws at various times – for space savings – but I’ve never made the switch.

Thanks to Ripper70 for adding the photos. Frankly, as a new user, I couldn’t figure out how to do it! Still, not sure.

As for the base size, the wide-angle lens makes the it look smaller than it is. This saw is so heavy, when the casters are folded up and the saw is sitting on the pads, it’s very stable. And now, with this setup, I finally (!) can locate the fence on either side of the blade. And with the right-hand table extension, the fence is supported for it’s full travel.
