first of all, thanks for all the responses! i have changed my mind no less that ten times reading the replies. since i have an old junk TS with an alum top, missing the magnetic featherboards is not an issue. neither is the storing of tools on the TS top, only safety glasses and a push stick are allowed to rest on the TS top in my shop. rust is also not a problem since my shop is enclosed and humidity controlled. i have heard of seasoning a cast iron top, but cant find out where to find that info on various models. in my mind, there are only two disadvantages of granite over steel. 1 is the jealously of my wife of me having a granite top in my shop and her wanting granite tops for our kitchen. of course the only way to resolve that issue is, well, you know<g> 2 the other issue is my stereotyping. i cant imagine dropping over a grand for a saw and not coming into the shop and seeing that bright new shiny TS top….......

decisions-decisions….........coin toss?
