Something to consider in terms of placement - in a previous basement workshop, I placed the far right side of my table saw very close to the right side wall in my shop, midway along the wall. Since most of your work will be to the left side of the fence -you don't need room beyond the right side table surface. This gives you more room to the left of the saw to move around and/or place other equipment. By placing it midway on the wall's length, you should have plenty of room to rip 8' to 10' length lumber INTO the saw - as well as have room for this same lumber on the out-feed side past the blade. Of coarse, this placement also helps with 4x8' sheet goods as well.
