What a great deal. You have a very good saw, but someday a new fence would be an improvement. I bought a Delta 34-444 which is similar to yours for my son two years ago. It still has the same fence as yours, and he is very happy with it. The existing fence isn’t that bad, but a Unifence, Delta T2, or a Biesmeyer fence would be an improvement if you should ever want improved accuracy. For a splitter, consider getting the Micro Jig splitter. It doesn’t look like much, but it will do a great job and it’s easy to change when using narrow kerf blades, or to remove when a splitter isn’t required. If you want a true splitter along with a blade cover, look into a Shark Guard. They are expensive, but work very well and work well with their Grrippers too..

There isn’t much you can do to contain the sawdust on these saws, but they make a bag that attaches under the saw with snaps that will collect the heavier saw dust. http://www.rockler.com/contractor-table-saw-dust-bag?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=&utm_content=pla&utm_campaign=PL&sid=V9146&gclid=Cj0KEQjw2ay8BRC7sYequMydsq0BEiQAbEX9UAaPSCFbHufZDGHBUfjTTALed-IOQq2N_LSrfRh-VXwaAmgL8P8HAQ
