I've spoken to the missus about the sawstop and showed her the video of how they work. She's supportive of the extra expenditure.

I have some questions:

1 Do you think it's worth it to get the contractor's saw over the jobsite saw? I'm thinking probably "yes" based on my experience with my old jobsite saw.


2 Is the "cast iron wings" upgrade worth it over the standard stamped steel? ($270)

3 There's also a '36" T-glide' option which gives you more table on the right with legs and what looks like an upgraded fence ($200) The standard fence looks like what was on my old saw, and I hated that thing.

Or would I be fine to just go with the base model, and then upgrade the fence?

There's also a $200 option to add wheels.

4 Add the Dado option (dado cartridge and throat plate and blade stack), or just use a router for that sort of thing?
