See my comments on the Harvey. Very happy with my C-300-30 ( I use an MDF fence face, so closer to 33 inch rip)

Go ahead and buy a “real” saw or you will want to upgrade again later. Sure, there was nothing my Ridgid could not do, but I sure like my full size 3 HP cabinet.

Fences seem to be a religious topic. My Ridgid was dead on and secure. Others had issues. My new C-300 steel T seems fine after a few tweaks. Features of the Incra are great, but too many comments about it not locking square. Too many fit and finish complaints about Vega. SuperCoolTools seems to be widely liked. Old Biesmyer was well respected, but seems Delta cheapened it.

Older saws do not have riving knives. Your choice. I don’t know where all the old Unisaws and PM66’s that are supposed to be out there are hiding. Great saws of the older generation. Don’t even see many older Delta Contractor saws. It was the top of that class. But when you get a “real” saw for $1500, why settle for less?
