I had that same saw for years. It really was a good saw but I began to realize that a good cabinet saw would make up for the inaccuracy of the delta/rockwell. I settled on a sawstop professional. Ya it’s bigger and it will roll good if you spring for the industrial wheels. I too used to park the old one against a wall. This one pretty much stays put unless I really need to move it. I solved the space problem by rethinking the layout of the shop. Before, I needed a mitre saw to take up the slack of the inaccuracy of the delta. The delta was pretty much delegated to ripping wood. The mitre saw gave me nice cross cuts. But with the new saw, I really don’t need anything else. So, it has become the central thing in the shop with other stuff mothballed or put aside unless I really need them.
So I have this big saw in the center of the room with an outfeed/assembly table and the other stuff around the edges of the shop. Best move I ever made. I love, love, this saw.
