After a lot of research, and a phone call to Vega. I have decided to go with the Vega Utility 26 to replace the “CRAP!!!” that came with my Craftsman Hybrid Table saw. The guy i spoke with at Vega assured me that it should bolt right up with no issues.
I have to say i am not happy about spending another $275 on a fence for a $650 saw. The price of the UT26 on amazon and Rockler is $329, but i had some amazon reward points saved up. (i spend way TOO much money on amazon :) If i had it to do all over again i would have purchased a different table saw, but it was my first purchase. Other than the fence it is a good saw. The table is flat and blade is true…all i need now is the ability to cut at 90 degrees to it and it should be a great saw…til i get a bigger shop at least….
The fence should be here in a few weeks. Once it comes in and i get it setup, I will post a review. Until then its, time to run all the dedicated electrical outlets for the garage, install the mini split, and setup my rikon 10-325.
