Honestly I’ve never wanted cast wings on my R4512. The steel ones are plenty sturdy and flat, and the saw is heavy enough. The fence on the R4512 is a lot nicer, but the split rails suck. The PC has the same design.

Once I saw that plastic blade height assembly in the PC, I looked no further. Aside from trunions, that is probably the second worst location I can think of to put plastic on a table saw. Failure is not a question of “if”, it’s a question of “when”. If I got one of those for free there would be a “New in box PCB270TS” ad on Craigslist the same day. Hearing they may be phasing it out would make me less comfortable knowing that parts availability for a guaranteed failure item my be slim in the near future
