It really isn t a bad saw but it is really stripped down. If you consider what you get in terms of wheels, trunnions, guides and the fence IMO the 513X2 is a better deal even not on sale.

Yeah I was looking at that one too…basically the same saw just all cast iron.

They share a good deal but the 513X2 has CI trunnions and wheels along with a larger table, a CI fence instead of aluminum and includes the resaw extrusion and has better guides (the guides on the 513/513ANV are the worst attempt at Euro guides I have seen on a saw.

If you are looking at the 513X2 you should also consider the Rikon 10-342 which I think is a better saw and price about the same when it is on sae, which is regularly.
