I have the 55, bought specifically for cutting sheet goods. Then I realized what a great tool it was for straight-edging rough sawn lumber, and it spends almost as much time doing that as cutting sheet goods. I still don’t see it as a substitute for a TS, but it does rip wood very well…of course, you do need the rip blade and the rails long enough to do whatever your cutting.
