Well, the OP has resolved his problem, but for newbies looking at this, I want to vent about the Shop Smith. First of all, it doesn’t have a small footprint, though its versatility might let you get rid of several large tools, such as lathe and drill press. But my main objection to SS is the crappy table saw. The table looks tinier than any job site saw, and it is tilting table, not tilting arbor (admittedly, sometimes that may not be a problem, or even an asset).

Anyhow, if it is a table saw I’m looking for, Shop Smith is the last thing I’d consider.
