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?

Because the weight limit was too close to the weight of the saw for my tastes, but I tend to overbuild stuff anyway. I got the 1100 for my Grizzly table saw a few years back and it just seems mushy because it flexes when I’m moving it but I’m sure it will work. There is no wobble sitting on the 2500. The 2500 has heavy steel rails that connect the 4 corners and is a frame. Even 3/4” plywood flexes with 300 lbs on it in that stand.
