re warranty, yeah fair enough, in other realms I’ve had the same experience, hardly ever get to claim anything past the first few months so not a big of a deal, just the psychological pressure I guess due to lack of knowledge in this area. The laguna comes from an outlet and I was told they will cover 6 months, but again based on your comment that should be plenty to surface any issue if there are any.

about the base, I saw that portamate, it’s on sale on amazon actually, but with all the money already spent I was feeling cheap and thought to get this one and slap a piece of plywood in it, it’s $25 less:

one question tho, any reason to get the 2500/650lb vs the 1100 I linked which is 400lb? the saw itself is spec’ed at 312lb , are ~80lb enough margin?

thanks again for all your help is making this decision, I continue to be amazed by, and very grateful for, the consistent valuable feedback I get on this forum.
