When new, i bought a nice table, 24” x 32”. Very good table, came with a very good fence. Then a few years later i went down the Incra fence path. I’ve had to add an extension off the back to mount the carriage—still nice but it’s time to build something more along the line of Brad’s set up.

Moral of that story—if you want accuracy and (more importantly) repeatability, Incra makes great stuff but it requres a footprint on the table top. If space and money are not issues—their big tops are sweet. You could still build your own cabinet to go under it, with storage.

You don’t mention what types of projects you expect to work on, and you may not even know yet. As your hobby evolves, your wants will become needs that may or may not fit your prior wants.

I will say this, i’ve seen a few RT-1000’s in person—their cabinets are first rate and look like great bank for the buck.
