Looks like the 0899 is just a rebranded 0833p. It has the same fence and blade guard dust collection. Lots of people like the 0771z but the fence on the 0833p/0899 looks much heavier – steel tube vs the extruded aluminum rail and it has that “Unifence-like” aluminum piece. I don t really see any difference between the 0833p and the “new” 0899 and you can still get the 0833p for $130 less.

It appears the 833p has disappeared from their site now. They must be watching us over here. Or did you see it somewhere else? I feel like it was there yesterday for sure.

Where does everyone find the country of origin? In the Q&A they do say that the 690 and 1023 have a different country of origin, I just couldn’t find which it is.

The trunnions and saw mechanism are mounted directly onto the cabinet base, whereas on a hybrid table saw they are usually just bolted to the bottom of the cast iron table.

Except in the case of at least the 0899 where they claim, “Cabinet-mounted cast-iron trunnions”

What I really want is to be able to go out to my garage, be able to set the fence with confidence that its within like 1/32-1/64 of square, and cut away. It seems like if I needed to do something like build a cabinet that I should be able to cut all of the pieces within maybe like an hour, whereas currently (and historically) that seems to be an all day event. FWIW, I previously had a cheap Ryobi jobsite saw with a really horrific sliding table and a fence that required careful measurement after each cut. I learned, however, on a fairly decent Delta contractor saw that my Dad still has and uses.
