I have sold miles of granite countertops. Each customer has been made aware of the fact that the stone will chip/crack. That being said, I’ve never had a call-back or break occur, and I have a cast iron top on the TS. I just would not want a granite top on the saw because of chip out potential on the miter slots. “sides that, I like the look of a well cared for TS top in my shop.
I would be REALLY puked out if I dropped something on the granite and it broke.
BUT, I do have a granite surface plate that is dead flat, maint. free, and hasn’t broken yet.
Does all that make me an old F@art?
