I was going to go through all the bother of trying to make my old Craftsman CS usable. Then Ridgid slashed the price of the R4511.

No regrets. And what a world of difference.

I had a T2, PALs and the link belt on the old Craftsman. But the lack of DC and a splitter/riving knife were simply insurmountable obstacles.

If cost is not a major facotr, get a decent TS. The accuracy, repeatability and ease of setup (the ol’ craftsman required two hands to raise/lower the blade) will take about thirty seconds to appreciate.
