What about building a saw station around the DeWalt? Like this:

The saw station is an interesting idea, and would solve at least one problem. But I don’t see how the rack & pinion fence works on it. Where is the knob that controls the fence?

Older Jet lock fence fences have rack and pinion micro adjust.

Jeff, I have the same table saw and it’s frustrating. I’m keeping my eyes open on CL and FB Marketplace while doing my best with the DW. I have no need to move it around, it’s all I could afford as I was getting started.
